yes here are many legal addons from the Kodi group themselves, some are completely free like PBS, HGTV Canada, Food network canada etc. and some are subscription based like NHL Gamecenter.
Yes, there are more ones that access pirated streams just like there are also legal android apps like Netflix, Amazon video, Crave tv, Ctv go etc. and also ones grabbing pirated content.
Not wading into the morality issue or anything just pointing out that there are plenty of legal addons and apps that work on android boxes. And also work on android phones, tablets and also PC's.
In the end Bell and Rogers will have as much luck as the MPAA and RIAA have had over the years with litigation. The only way to reduce piracy is by offering product at a reasonable price and available on multiple platforms people want to use. Like Netflix, Itunes, hulu, spotify etc., have done.
Unfortunately rather than "Innovate" the media conglomerates here in Canada prefer to 'Litigate" and pretend it is still the 1980's and hope for continued government protection of their monopoly.
Just my humble opinion
