Kodi's rise in popularity shows no signs of stopping.
The streaming software is now estimated to be running on over 20 million devices in the UK alone and that number is growing by the day.
But this growing fan base means this streaming software has been placed firmly under the spotlight.
Kodi software isn't illegal but its open source platform allows users to install add-ons which brings access to a host of illegal content such as sports and movies.
The Premier League recently secured a hugely significant court order which is aimed at stopping rights-infringing video streams of its matches.
This new ruling gives the league the ability to block servers which are broadcasting the games – stopping users of Kodi and other streaming devices from tuning in for free.
To add to its troubles Amazon recently banned "fully loaded" boxes from being sold on its website and arrests and fines have also been issued in recent months as the crackdown on Kodi continues.

However, Kodi is fighting back and has revealed plans to tackle the piracy that is so often linked with its open-source software.
Project lead Martijn Kaijser said the team was looking to bring DRM to the platform.
For those who don't know, Digital Rights Management (DRM) is a way to enable copyright protection for digital media.

Enabling DRM on Kodi could encourage providers to bring their content to the Kodi platform without fear that it could be pirated, said Mr Kaijser.
Bringing more legitimate sources of copyrighted content to the Kodi platform would also change the software's reputation.
Now Kodi is expected to announce even more news about what's to come at its yearly developers conference.
The team behind Kodi has just revelead its big event will take place next month.
The three day conference, which is being held in Porto, Portugal, will show off what's coming soon to Kodi.
At its last conference, Kodi revealed its v17 update and it's expected that this year's event will bring more news about v18 which is currently codenamed "Leia".
In a statement on their website, Kodi confirmed: "As always, we'll continue to talk about ways to improve the software we all love: Kodi for Windows x64 and UWP, GSOC projects, database refactoring, and server and infrastructure improvements are some of the scheduled topics.
"Perhaps most exciting to all you Kodi fans out there is that we're also going to fine-tune the path for the release of Kodi v18, "Leia".
Along with its developers conference Kodi has also announced that it has been accepted as a Google Summer of Code 2017 project.
Accepted students work with a mentor and become a part of the open source community with many becoming lifetime open source developers.
Google Summer of Code is open to university students, age 18 and older in most countries.
