Why is TVAddons Repository not Working?
It was claimed that an American lawsuit was the main reason behind the shutdown of the TVAddons repo. According to the legal complaint “Around the world, approximately 40 million unique users were actively using Infringing Addons that were hosted by TVAddons every month. And so approximately 900,000 Canadian households were using the Infringing Add-ons to access the television content. As a result, the number of users of the TVAddons repo hosting the Infringing add-ons was increasing constantly.”
As there is no evidence that exactly how the Canadian companies came up with such claims. One can only assume that they monitored the Kodi users watching the pirated TV shows, movies and live streams using the unofficial addons on their Android Mac or FireStick devices.
The claims by the Canadian lawsuit also included that the TVAddons communicated to the public Game of Thrones, Keeping Up With The Kardashians, The Big Bang Theory, Prison Break, America’s Got Talent, and many other copyrighted shows like these by breaching the copyright.

How to Fix TVAddons Repo not Working?
Since for much time one couldn’t figure out the reason behind the shutdown of TVAddons repo, here are a few fixes that will help you resolve any issue with Kodi.
Method 1- Check Internet Connection
The primary solution of most of the Internet streaming problems is Internet connectivity. So the prime step is to check the connectivity of your router. Either access the Internet by browsing something or using Kodi only. One thing to be kept in mind is that for HD streaming one needs high speed. So if you are working with 20Mbps then you can enjoy continuous streaming of HD or 4K videos.
If you are sure that your Internet connection is proper then move to the next step.
Method 2- Update our Kodi
It is important that your Kodi add-ons are compatible with the main software. Most of the users stick to the solid version of Kodi 17.6, and very few of them have updated to the latest Kodi 18 beta version. As most of the developers develop the addons that support the latest version and are compatible with it, it is highly recommended that you update your Kodi.
Method 3- Update the Addons
Outdated and corrupt Kodi addons are also one of the most common causes of Kodi errors. And by simply updating the addons you can rectify the problem and resolve it. You can update the addon by right-clicking on that particular addon, followed by information and then clicking on update. Outdated addons miss some of the important instruction files which have the actual fix for the bugs.
And so we would recommend you to keep all the Kodi add-ons updated.
The TVAddons repository is a well-known Kodi repo that hosts a large number of addons. It went offline for quite a few days but now it is back.
