Is the Ares Repo Down? The Ares Project had their western repository location, which was located at http://repo.ares-project.com/magic/, taken down recently. This has broken many of the links found in install tutorials for the many add-ons available in the Ares Repo. Consequently, many Kodi Fire Stick users question us about this. Note that I mentioned their western repo; their main repo, located in the Old World, is doing just fine at this time. Access it at http://ares-repo.eu. There are also mirrors of the Ares Repo located within a few of the mega-repos, such as the aptly named SuperRepo found at http://srp.nu.
With the Western Ares Repo Down, Take Heed…
Many servers disappear within the Kodi third party (unofficial) community. The illegality of their shared content causes this. The TVAddons fiasco a few months ago should really give Kodi users pause, as should the closing of Exodus and its recent magical reappearance as a re-branded version of its own fork known as Covenant.
Lately, law firms own and run some third party Kodi add-on sites. They have their reasons. Anybody using TVAddons or Navi-X at this time should use protection. You could be placing your information right into an ongoing database for use at a later date in litigation. All of these, and any other add-on currently available, can safely be used with the help of a top tier VPN. A VPN will keep your location and identity completely private.

Ares Repo Down the Road
The Ares Project provides some great add-ons that fill the needs of nearly any entertainment seeker. The Ares Repo should be up in one form or another for a long time to come. Protect yourself and your family with a highly secure VPN, then enjoy what it has to offer worry free. Please don’t wait until you can only wish you had.
