|Streaming piracy today becomes increasingly popular, with media player Kodi being at the center of everyone’s attention. In fact, Kodi itself is a neutral platform (just like BitTorrent), but millions of people use plugins to turn it into a piracy tool. TVAddons is one of the largest repositories of such plugins, and those who want to upgrade their Kodi experience, visit the site, known also as the home of FreeTelly – a custom pre-loaded version of Kodi for PC and Mac.
Interest in Kodi has rapidly grown in the last few months, largely driven by those “pirate” plugins. As a result, TVAddons is also enjoying popularity now: while the repository had about 10m unique users per month a year ago, in March this number was reached in a single day.
However, most of these visitors are not actually visiting the website – they are checking in from their devices to see if there’s anything new. In any case, the growth is incredible. TVAddons users transferred a petabyte of data from the site in total, which equals to one quadrillion bytes. This traffic is divided over numerous addons: so far, the website currently lists more than 1,500 different versions. The community-maintained addon Genesis is one of the most popular on the site. However, there is no information on how frequently these individual addons are used – this statistics is not collected, in part to avoid a competitive atmosphere, but also for privacy reasons.
Besides, TVAddons is trying hard to keep profit-seekers away from its platform, including people trying to sell paid access to pirated content, such as unofficial IPTV suppliers. The service is going to focus on improving its current services to provide users access to media content in the most convenient way.

|I havn't used Exodus in a couple of months. I thought the maker of it "retired". He had that one update of Exodus where everyone that used it was DDOSing one of his enemies or something and when he got called out on it he said he was retiring.|
I pretty much just use 1channel for everything (TV and Movies)
