A few months ago, TVAddons was without doubt the leading repository for third-party Kodi addons.
During March, the platform had 40 million unique users connected to the site’s servers, together transferring a petabyte of addons and updates.
In June, however, things started to fall apart. After news broke that the site was being sued in a federal court in Texas, TVAddons disappeared. It was assumed these events were connected but it later transpired the platform was being used in Canadaas well, and that was the true reason for the downtime.
While it’s easy to be wise after the event, in hindsight it might’ve been better for the platform to go public about the Canadian matter quite a bit sooner than it did. Of course, there are always legal considerations that prevent early disclosure, but when popular sites disappear into a black hole, two plus two can quickly equal five when fed through the web’s rumor machine.
