Default Kodi Add-ons in trouble

Kodi and specifically the add-ons we love have been getting a lot of negative attention lately. Add-ons seem to be bailing so they don't get caught up in the law suits. I have had a fit trying to stream lately on Exodus, Phoenix and Salts. It says stream unavailable on everything we try to watch. I know others have said their's works fine. Is this the beginning of the end for using Kodi in this way? Here are just a few of the many articles in recent days..

I've had the same experience and been meaning to post up on here about it. Many of mine say I have to log in to an additional server to watch. Not liking this one bit

That sucks. It was inevitable though. I'm just glad I never bought one and messed with it.

I thought it was just mine for a while. I updated to the 17.3 and it worked great for a few weeks until a week or so ago. Then I started reading about the shutdowns and potential legal issues for these providers. I already hated Dish Network and now they have to go and sue and scare off these add-on providers. You suck Dish!

I was looking at getting Sling TV but then I saw Dish owns them and was like "nope, nope, nope."

Yep we paid $75 for ours over a year ago and have gotten our money's worth to say the least. Guess Netflix and Hulu will have to cut it from now on. I knew when I bought it that it would just be a matter of time though.

I still have Specto working. Do you guys use real-debrid? It allows the addons to find more and more reliable links. It costs $10 for 90 days. Exodus is working for me too. All except the trakt integration. Specto has the integration working.

I have a friend from the NE that builds the dragon box and ships it to you. He preloads all the apps and add ons. It was a sweet deal for what i paid. I dont think hes doing it anymore.....which tells me its on the way out. I knew going in it would be a crap shoot. However it has lasted longer than i expected so im happy.

I just read this on another thread so I thought I would share it to help those of you having the same issues I'm having with exodus and others. I wonder how long before these other repositories shut down too?

Wife uses it occasionally. Said it was working well on the table, but the laptop. We download it to those two devices and didn't pay for the firesticks or boxes.

It seems to just be hit or miss on Exodus, and Specto. Some movies work, and others dont.

The newer movies that are still in theater or recently released in theaters will have problems going forward, but anything coming out on redbox or DVD soon will work great from the research I've done about the kodi shut downs, live streams are still working for me also

I will say that I did not get Exodus installed on one FireTV stick because the repo wasn't working anymore. Need to research it and see if it's up again.

Keep updating kodi, if you don't it will eventually shut down and stop working

I updated Kodi to 17.3 this past weekend and nothing is working. I get the OpenLoad Stream Authorization screen and I'm not about to pair it. I think Kodi is on its death bed.

Last 5 movies I've watched have worked flawlessly, make sure if your watching movies in the exodus add-on that you select the new movies icon instead of the other choices

not sure why you all are paying for kodi you can download both it and the add ons for free. Since the scare you have to update e a couple add ons that's all I have done.
