A popular Kodi add-on, Navi-X, has shut down, citing legal concerns around the popular video streaming service.
However, despite these legal concerns, Navi-X has confirmed that it’s shutting down voluntarily rather than having been forced to.
What is Navi-X?
Navi-X is an add-on for Kodi that aggregates free video content. It offers tens of thousands of TV shows and movies that can be accessed at no cost.
While Kodi itself does not enable piracy, add-ons such as Navi-X can be used to access copyrighted content.
A useful analogy is to see Kodi as the Chrome to Navi-X’s Pirate Bay. You use Chrome to access The Pirate Bay, but ultimately Google is not responsible for the pirated content contained on that site. In a similar way, Kodi doesn’t itself enable the piracy.
