TVAddons, the leading repository for unofficial Kodi addons, continues to broaden its user-base. Last month nearly 40 million unique users connected to the site’s servers, transferring a dazzling petabyte of data. If it’s up to the site’s operators, the recent growth will be just the beginning of an ongoing trend.
Streaming piracy is on the rise with popular media player Kodi at the center of attention.
While Kodi itself is a neutral platform, millions of people use third-party addons to turn it into the ultimate pirate machine.
TVAddons is of the largest repositories of these plugins. The site, which is also the home of FreeTelly, a custom pre-loaded version of Kodi for PC and Mac, is the go-to destination for those who want to upgrade their Kodi experience.
Over the past year-and-a-half, interest in Kodi has skyrocketed, something that’s in large part driven by “pirate” addons. As such, TVAddons has also seen its visitor numbers shoot through the roof.
The site’s latest numbers show how rapidly the platform is growing. Roughly a year ago the repository had about 10 million unique users per month, and last month this number was reached in a single day.
Most of these users aren’t visiting the website. They are people checking in from their devices to see if there’s anything new. Still, the numbers are quite impressive.
