Kodi Add-Ons Quit Following Prominent Piracy Lawsuit from Dish Network


ZemTV, Phoenix and Salts are all unavailable as legal pressure mounts.
 Some of the biggest third-party Kodi streaming addons are no longer available. TorrentFreak reports that ZemTV and Phoenix have recently closed following a lawsuit from US satellite broadcaster Dish Network, with other streaming add-ons following suit. The add-ons, which offer on-demand and live streamed content free of charge, are accused of direct copyright infringement of various TV channels.

In a statement on the TVAddons forum, Phoenix developer Cosmix confirmed the closure, but didn’t elaborate on the exact reason why: “In light of current events we have decided to close down Phoenix,” he said. “This is not something that was easy for us to do; we have all formed a bond that cannot be broken as a team and have a HUGE support base that we are thankful of.”
