Despite an EU Court of Justice ruling that determined streaming copyright protected content is just as illegal as downloading, the team behind Kodi said they would not be changing their software. 

The developers said they would not stop users from having the ability to stream movies, television shows, live sports or any other subscription content for free.

Nathan Betzen, a project and community manager for Kodi, confirmed their position, stating: "Even though pirate streaming appears to be illegal in Europe, we still stand by our neutral policy.

"We are developers and not the police, and we have no interest in acting as police for our own software."

However, one of the free media player's leading add-ons has now said it will no longer continue to supply content.

Evening Times:

Navi-X has been in operation since 2007 but, according to the team behind it, the current legal issues have made it too risky for them to continue.

Without the Navi-X add-on installed on Kodi, it’s a bit more difficult for people to stream films, TV shows and live sport.

It was widely regarded in online communities as one of the most reliable and stable media libraries.

The concern for most Kodi users now will be who's going to be next to shut down their streaming services?
