[Feature Request] Telia Play+
#16
Microsoft announced the end-of-life of Silverlight 5 in 2012. In 2013, Microsoft announced that they had ceased development of Silverlight except for patches and bugfixes. Microsoft has set the support end date for Silverlight 5 to be October 2021 (which today only remains for Internet Explorer 11 on Windows). Silverlight is already no longer supported in Google Chrome since September 2015, and in Firefox since March 2017. And there is no Silverlight plugin available for Microsoft Edge.

It is clear that the solution should be for Telia to migrate to a HTML5 based framework as soon as possible, (no matter the cost/time for Telia), and not that Kodi should add support for Silverlight which is practically obsolete today (and did never even have proper cross-platform support).

The point is rather why anyone would spend time and effort on something that's been end-of-life for 6 years or so, just because aforesaid multinational can't be bothered to keep their software up to date?

They have rather more access to resources and money than we do. I know it's you the end user who suffers, but I doubt people would be interested in supporting something that's so far EOL as Silverlight is.

Also remember that Kodi is very much multi-platform, and I'm not even sure Silverlight is applicable to non-Windows environments.
