NEW EU LAWS SEE DEVELOPERS FALLING FROM SOCIAL MEDIA ACCOUNTS
It’s not been three weeks and already we see the drop in social media activity from third-party add-on developers. As developers move from the public eye, social media platforms in fear of investigations due to new laws. We look at what could be turmoil for users who purchased pirate devices. With Apps Like Teamviewer and OTA E Box has their customers covered for any possible issues. issues could arise due to the new EU laws passed down in a Dutch courtroom as we reported in last month’s update, is Kodi legal, is selling Kodi boxes illegal, what is Kodi. It seems now that after the hammer fell on a courtroom decision the knock-on effect is showing its hand hitting the social media platforms first, as developers move from the public eye to avoid detection.

FIRST POSTS OUT WAS YOU WON’T BAN KODI, THIS A TRUE FACT IN DEFENCE OF THE OPEN SOURCE MEDIA PLAYER.
First, it was cries of you shall not ban Kodi. This is a fact as the law was not aiming at Kodi itself. Kodi is an open source media centre and often blamed for the way third-party developers change it. To get access to pirate content. Third-party developers create an add-on that allows the user to get access to websites. With links to desired Sport’s Movies and TV shows. The demand was there for this type of media and this has helped with the huge increase of people looking for a way to get access to it.
As there was no law against streaming this made Kodi the perfect platform for third-party developers to experiment with developing an add-on that would take the strain out of searching for and then downloading files from the internet. developers had this perfected down to a fine art with some add-ons working as good as Netflix or Amazon prime streaming newly released movies and Premiership title sports. If developers move from the public eye, this could cause a potential nightmare for users who purchased fully loaded devices without support.
ONE DEVELOPER THANKS, ALL AS HE BOWS OUT FROM HIS ROLE IN THIRD PARTY DEVELOPMENT
As one developer stated in a social media tweet he has enjoyed a great two years developing within Kodi and gives thanks to all who aided him in doing what he enjoyed.
WITH THE RECENT CHANGES TO UK LAW, THE TIME HAS COME FOR ME TO CHANGE DIRECTION….
- For a while, I have thought about throwing in the towel and calling it a day. The last 2 years have amazed in terms of what I have learnt, the friends I have made, the community of fans I have behind me and the number of followers I have gained via social media.
- I don’t think people fully appreciate the amount of time the developers, build makers, bloggers, coders and supports invest to offer the things that by some, taken for granted. I have invested a lot of time, money and energy into making the things I have but the time has come for me to draw a line under it.

IS THIS THE CALM BEFORE THE STORM AS SEEN RECENTLY WITH KODI UPGRADE TO VERSION 17 KRYPTON
Will mass panic erupt for people who have purchased a fully loaded box sold by pirate box sellers? Kodi support groups were in demand at the beginning of the year. As Kodi made the move from Jarvis 16.1 to its latest version of Krypton 17. The upgrade left a mass of people who purchased their device from sites such as eBay and Amazon. Users stuck with blank screens or unplayable content. If developers move from the public eye because of the EU streaming laws. This is likely to happen again if developers shut down websites and accounts, also add-ons that’s linked to third-party’s. Users will have nowhere to turn for advice if they have purchased a fully loaded box with pirated content. As the user has not set up the device they won’t be fully aware of the content that’s installed. This could be where they first have issues.
WHATEVER THE ISSUE E BOX HAVE YOUR BACK WITH OTA UPDATER
The dilemma occurred as the user had no knowledge of setting Kodi up on their own. With no advice from where they purchased their device available to them. Once they purchased the device they were on their own, unlike E box customers. Staff on hand can do most tasks that need to be done if OTA updater is not enough. E Box customers have assurance whatever the future holds for this media player we will be on the front line keeping you ahead.

From the Q box through the T8 V5 up to our projectors such as Ebox, Air Gold are all pre-installed with these great apps one of the many great services E Box offer.
New EU laws put streaming on the same playing field as downloads now in legal terms. Kodi users who access services from third-party developers streaming from pirate sites are looking at a potential nightmare. As developer’s shut down, their sources for add-ons builds and tutorial websites on how to best access their work. Users Loss of sources will occur as developers try to change their work to stay within the legal limitations. You can safely assume it will cause a lot of people looking for that quick fix to their issues. That may appear if more developers move from the public eye.
