Hollywood Strikes Back Against Illegal Streaming Kodi Add-Ons

An anti-piracy alliance supported by many major US and UK movie studios, broadcasters and content providers has dealt a blow (WARNING auto play video) to the third-party Kodi by forcing them offline. The crackdown on developers including jsergio123 and The_Alpha, who are major third-party add-on developers have confirmed they are out of the business now and don't plan to support their creations any longer. Sounds like the studios are getting serious and they're going to shut down all of the illegal streaming apps given enough time. Without illegal streaming apps is Kodi sustainable?

The action comes after The_Alpha reportedly received a hand delivered letter to their UK home: "This letter is addressed to you by companies of the six-major United States film studios represented by the Motion Picture Association (MPA), namely Columbia Pictures Industries, Inc., Disney Enterprises, Inc., Paramount Pictures Corporation, Twentieth Century Fox Film Corporation, Universal City Studios LLLP and Warner Bros. Entertainment Inc., Netflix, Inc. and Amazon Studios LLC (represented by MPA via the Alliance for Creativity and Entertainment (ACE)), Sky UK Limited, and The Football Association Premier League Limited," the opening paragraph reads.
