Well done Kodi.TV! After a long day, it’s finally all over. We know for 100% that the domain seized notice was fake. It was all part of a very carefully planned unveiling of the new look site. Kodi.tv is back up and running and looking a million dollars.
Why would Kodi place the domain seized banner on their own site? to attract people’s attention, to Increase people’s awareness and to also get people to visit the site to see if it’s back up and running. By doing a stunt like this, it sent shockwaves through the Kodi community. Youtubers, bloggers, reviewers, all had something to say about it. Now Kodi.TV will reap the rewards that they deserve.
After doing a little digging, it looks like this could very well be a well-planned April fool’s joke. Why do we say this?
What this shows us is that kodi.TV still control or the images displayed. If the site was under control of ICE the images would be hosted on an external server, not hosted on Kodi.TV. What they have done is relatively easy. When a site is down for maintenance they can display any image they want for all pages and posts. So, it’s highly likely they have put the site into maintenance mode and replaced the image on the site.
At the time of writing this is what we can confirm.
The simple answer is yes. Kodi is a media player, it’s the 3rd party addons that are causing a major issue. Let’s say the closed down the kodi website for good. The developers that create the 3rd party addons would still create new ones. By closing the Kodi.TV site it’s not going to tackle the main issue they have. Kodi MC is not reliant on the kodi tv website so even if they take it down the only effect it will have is the RSS feed will no longer display. Any addons that are needed from the Kodi TV repo will be moved to someone else’s repo. It’s a difficult situation for the US Government.
From my experience, this is a little bit more than an April fool’s joke. If this is a stunt, then fair play to them. The amount of publicity they will receive from this stunt is phenomenal. It could also be a good way to highlight the issues surrounding Fully loaded Box sellers. And their way of showing this is what could happen if it carries on. Hopefully, by the time I wake up this will all be a joke or maybe it could be something more. Stay tuned to find out what really happened. As soon as we know we will update this post.
