In a surprising turn of events, the official Kodi team appears to have been kicked off their servers by their web host.
According to a tweet by Team Kodi, their sponsor and web host Acquia informed them that they would have to pay to move to dedicated infrastructure in order to remain online.
It probably came as quite the shock to Team Kodi, since one would assume that they would have planned to move to a new host in advance, had they known.
After reading the comments to their Twitter announcement, it seems that many smaller hosts are prepared to take on the responsibility. Who they’ll choose, and when their site will return, is a mystery for now.
In the meantime, download links in our Getting Started with Kodi section are functioning fine. For Android, it’s still available for download from the Google Play Store.
