Kodi has been getting a lot of press recently, and mainly for the wrong reasons. Despite the fact that the software is completely legal and mostly innocent, it’s become synonymous with streaming piracy thanks to a number of dodgy unaffiliated add-ons that let people watch premium TV channels without paying.
The ongoing fight against those add-ons is going further than just blocking streams and arresting fully-loaded set-top box dealers. Thanks to ongoing legal issues faced by a number of add-ons, some of the developers behind them are retiring – including the renowned MetalKettle who has decided to call it quits.
MetalKettle doesn’t seem to be completely innocent in this, having gained a reputation for high quality streaming add-ons over the years. On top of that his named was attached to an add-on repository that became a go-to location for many users hoping to get their stream on. Some of his add-ons include (but are not limited to) UK Turks, UKTV Again, Xmovies8, Cartoons8, Toonmania, TV Mix, Sports Mix, Live Mix, Watch1080p, and MovieHut.
