In this tutorial, I will show you how to install Maverick TV addon on Kodi 18.2 and Kodi 17.6. I have taken the images from Kodi on Windows, but the guide works exactly the same for all platforms including FireStick (and other Fire TV line of devices), Mac, iOS, Android Mobiles, Android TV and more.
Maverick TV is a multipurpose Kodi addon that lets you watch a variety of content including Movies, TV Shows, Sports, Live TV, Kids, etc. The addon is the part of very popular Maverick TV repository and that instantly makes a credible source of unlimited entertainment.
The content library of Maverick TV Kodi addon is huge. That’s expected since it covers such a wide range of content. The library is well maintained, and new videos are added to it regularly. If you have Maverick TV, you might probably not even need any other addon. It is also the part of our list of Best Kodi Addons.
Update: Maverick TV Addon is currently unavailable as the Maverick Repo is down. Please try one of the other addons from our list of Best Kodi Addons
How to Install Maverick TV Kodi Addon
Let us first quickly set up Kodi so that it is ready to install third-party addons like Maverick TV. We are simply going to change one security setting. Here is what needs to be done:
#1. Click Settings option on the home-screen of Kodi. It is the gear icon you should be looking for on the top-right
#2. Go ahead and open the option System on Kodi 18 Leia or System settings on Kodi 17.6 Krypton
#3. Make sure you select Add-ons menu item on the left part of the window that opens next. You should see Unknown Sources on the right. This is the option you need to switch ON in case it is OFF. So, move the toggle to the ON position
#4. Choose Yes to proceed when the following prompt is displayed. Maverick TV is one of the safe Kodi addons. However, you may want to disable Unknown Sources again once you have installed Maverick TV.
We can now start with the core installation process.
Steps to install Maverick TV on Kodi
I will now take you through a series of steps to install Maverick TV Kodi addon. The process may seem a bit long drawn, but it is fairly easy to follow. Here are the steps:
#1. You want to open Settings again from the home-screen of Kodi
#2. Open File manager next from the following set of options on the next window
#3. You must now see Add source on the left and right both. Click either to open a popup window.
#4. You should now see this window. Click where you see the option <None>
#5. Use the on-screen keypad on this window to type the following path in the designated field: http://mavericktv.net/mavrepo
Check the URL one more time to make sure it is correct
#6. You will notice that the section labelled Enter a name for this media source is automatically filled with the name mavrepo. You may keep the default or change the name to any name you like. I am going with the default name.
Up until the previous step, you added the source URL to Kodi. Now we install the Maverick TV repo.
#7. Go to the Kodi home-screen and open Settings again or simply press the back option until you return to the following window
Click Add-ons when you are here
Note: If you have Kodi 17.6 Krypton, from the Kodi home-screen go to Add-ons > Open box icon on the top left
#8. Click Install from zip file
#9. Open mavrepo or any other source name you chose earlier
#10. Open the zip file repository.maverickrepo-x.x.zip
Note: I have replaced the version number of the zip file with x.x as it may change later
#11. Wait until the following notification is displayed on the top-left of your Kodi screen: MaverickTV Repo Add-on installed
You have successfully installed the MaverickTV Repo. Let us now install the MaverickTV Kodi Addon
#12. Open the option Install from repository
#13. Go ahead and click MaverickTV Repo
#14. Click Video add-ons
#15. Open Maverick TV next
#16. Click Install button
#17. You will see the following pop-up/prompt only if you use Kodi 18 Leia. It lists the additional addons that get installed with Maverick TV.
#18. Now simply wait while the Maverick TV Kodi addon is installed. You can monitor the installation progress on the screen. The installation completion is confirmed by the following message appearing on the top-right of the window: Maverick TV Add-on installed
This is how you install the Maverick TV addon on Kodi.
Before you start streaming with Kodi Addons / Builds, I would like to warn you that everything you stream on Kodi is visible to your ISP and Government. This means, streaming copyrighted content (free movies, TV shows, Sports) might get you into legal trouble.
Kodi users are strongly advised to connect a VPN while streaming. A VPN for Kodi will bypass ISP throttling, Government Surveillance, and geo-restriction on popular Add-ons. I always connect ExpressVPN on all my streaming devices and I suggest you do the same.
ExpressVPN is the fastest and most secure VPN. It comes with a 30-day money-back guarantee. Meaning, you can use it freely for the first 30-days and if you are not satisfied with the performance (which is highly unlikely), you can ask for the full refund.
NOTE: We do not encourage the violation of the copyright laws. But, what if you end up streaming content from an illegitimate source unintentionally? It is not always easy to tell the difference between a legit and illegal source.
So, before you start streaming on Kodi, here's how to get VPN protection in 3 simple steps.
Step 1: Get the ExpressVPN subscription HERE.
Step 2: Click HERE to download and install the ExpressVPN app on your device.
Step 3: Click the Power icon to connect a VPN server. That's all. Your connection is now secure with the fastest and best VPN for Kodi.
A Quick Rundown of Maverick TV Kodi Addon
The first thing you will want to do is access the Maverick TV addon. It is available in the Video add-ons section, which you can access directly from the home-screen by selecting Add-ons on the left. Or, you may go to Add-ons > Video add-ons
There is a long list of content categories on the main screen of Maverick TV as shown in the following two images
There are options to watch Movies, TV Shows, Live TV, Catch Up TV, Sports, and content for Kids (not shown in the images above).
Maverick TV has a big collection of free content. However, if you are looking for premium stuff, it has many Real Debrid related categories too.
Maverick TV is easily one of the best multipurpose addons I have known. It is one thing to have dozens of categories, it is another to keep those categories functional. Almost everything that I clicked works. This means Maverick TV Kodi addon has a lot of content to watch.
The addon features categories for Movies, Shows, Live TV, Kids, Sports and more. There are some special categories too like Trekkie Heaven, Top 250 Movies of All Time, 4K UHD Movies etc. In spite of the huge content database, Maverick TV is fairly fast. It allowed me to quickly navigate through the categories and also offered swift playback.
I personally believe Maverick TV is one of the must-have Kodi addons.
