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.
How to use Maze Kodi Builds
To access the build, all you need to do is reopen the Kodi application after the installation.
When you open the Maze Kodi build the first time, make sure you give it a few minutes before you start using it. During the initial minutes, Kodi will configure the build and update various addons and settings.
This is the main window of the Kodi interface with the Maze Family Build we installed
The interface looks quite similar to many other Kodi builds. That’s because it uses the familiar layout where the menu bar and submenu bar are placed across the width of the screen and around the bottom.
The build displays the recommended content when you select a streaming category (like ‘Movies’ is selected in the image above. The list of recommended addons is displayed in the submenu bar.
The build features the following main menu items:
- TV Shows

- Docs TV
- Live TV
To view the list of the preinstalled addons, you may go to System > Video Add-ons
The build features the following notable add-ons:
- T2K Kingdom
- Exodus Redux
