Attention KODI users: please read before continuing

Kodi addons / modules offer unlimited streaming content, but can also get you in legal trouble if you get caught watching movies / TV shows / sports for free. Kodi users are strongly advised to always connect a VPN when streaming online. A good Kodi VPN can hide your identity, bypass government surveillance, block content, and ISP throttling (which also contributes to buffer-free streaming).

I use ExpressVPN, which is the fastest and most secure VPN. It is very easy to install on any device, including the Amazon FireStick. Get 3 months free and save 49% on annual plans. There is also a 30 day money back guarantee. If you are not satisfied, you can always ask for a refund.

How to install Grindhouse builds on Kodi.

Before you start streaming video with Kodi addons or modules, I want to warn you that everything you stream on Kodi is visible to your ISP and the government. This means that streaming copyrighted content (free movies, TV shows, live broadcasts and sports) can lead to legal problems.

Fortunately, there is a reliable way to hide all your streaming activities from your ISP and the government. All you need is a good VPN for Kodi. A VPN masks your original IP address and helps you bypass Internet monitoring, ISP restrictions, and geographic content limitations.

Personally, I use and recommend ExpressVPN, the fastest and most secure VPN. It is compatible with all types of applications and streaming devices.

OPINION: We do not encourage copyright infringement. But what if you accidentally upload content from an illegal source? It is not always easy to distinguish between a legal and an illegal source.

So before you start streaming on Kodi, read here how to get VPN protection in 3 easy steps.

Step one: Purchase your ExpressVPN subscription HERE. It comes with a 30-day money-back guarantee. This means you can use it for free for the first 30 days. If you are not satisfied with the service (which is unlikely), you can ask for a full refund.

Step two: Click HERE to download and install the ExpressVPN application on your streaming device. If you are using a FireStick, I have included the exact steps below, starting with step 4.

Step three: Click on the power icon to connect to the VPN server. That’s it. Now your connection is secure with the fastest and best VPN for Kodi.

The steps to install Kodi VPN on Fire TV devices are described below. If you have other broadcast devices, follow steps 1 to 3 above.

Step four: Sign up for ExpressVPN HERE (if you are not already a subscriber).

Step 5: Go to the Fire TV Stick home screen. Click the Search button and then the Search option (see figure below).

Step six: Type expressvpn into the search bar and select when it appears.

Seventh step: Click on the Download button.

Step 8: Open the ExpressVPN application and log in using the username and password you created when you purchased your ExpressVPN subscription.

Step 9: Click on the power icon to connect to the VPN server. That’s it. Now your FireStick is protected with the fastest VPN.

How to use Grindhouse Kodi Build: Quick view

Grindhouse has a great collection of Kodi builds. You can select any assembly from the list. Since we installed the Blue Lite version for demonstration purposes, let’s take a look at it.

The Blue Lite version of Kodi has the following home screen:

The background image is dynamic and changes every few seconds. It has the following main menu items, which can be used for streaming:

– TV
– Movies
– Favorites (only if you have added items to Favorites)

When you select an item from the main menu, the submenu below displays the corresponding options.

Here’s a list of popular addons you can find here:

– DeathStar
– SportsDevil
– The Magic Dragon

As you can see, this version is mainly for movies and TV shows. However, addons like The Magic Dragon also offer live TV options.

The assembly is light and minimalist, reduced to the essentials. If you’re interested in more features, you can try one of Grindhouse’s other, more feature-rich Kodi builds. You can also explore and install other addons from our list of the best Kodi addons. Here is our guide on how to install an addon on an assembly.


Grindhouse is a decent repository for Kodi builds. You will find a wide variety of assemblies for all types of equipment. Try different options and you’ll find one you want to keep.

Blue Lite is one of my favorite grindhouse codi builds. It is very light and contains no more than 150 MB of installation data. It only has a few add-ons, but those are the most popular, so streaming movies and shows goes well with it. This version lacks the Live TV option in the main menu. However, it has several versatile add-ons that allow you to stream live satellite TV from around the world. The build font is not very readable, but it can be changed in the skin settings.
