Kodi is offering fans a treat today with the launch of a new plan called KodiTV™ MultiPass!
In a post on its website, Kodi states that the service “offers the best of all major content providers, combined in one single add-on.”
The post then goes on to reveal pricing with a MultiPass and Megapass starting from as little as $14.99 per month and the fully-loaded Monsterpass costing $199 a year (unlimited tier).
Tweeting their reaction, one user said: “Where do I send the cheque made out to cash please?”
Whilst another asked the TV player, “On how many devices?”
However, before you get too excited about getting Netflix, Amazon Prime and HBO content for under £15 per month you might want to take a look at today’s date.
It is, of course, April 1st and it seems Kodi is playing a little prank on its army of users with many being duped.
Some had spotted the joke with one Kodi fan tweeting, on Kodi's official ___ page, “Happy April 1st to you too!”
This isn’t the first time Kodi has released some fake news on April Fools day.
Last year the TV player announced that Kodi was “no more”.
In post on April 1st 2018, Kodi revealed: “Starting today, we would like to announce that we are exclusively supporting only the Xbox One.
“We will be disabling support for all other platforms in the forum starting immediately and will begin shifting our website to reflect this change in the very near future. The work to make Kodi for Xbox a premier platform has finally paid off!
“Making this decision was not easy.”
The following day, Kodi then updated the article to reveal the prank with the team behind the player saying: “Of course, this was an open source joke.”
Expect a similar update to today's story coming to Kodi's website soon.
