How to Use MTB’s Greased Lightning Kodi Addon
Now that you have installed the addon, you would want to start using it for streaming. Let me give you a quick overview of the addon.
First, let’s see how we access Greased Lighting Kodi addon.
You will find the addon on the home screen of Kodi. Simply highlight the Add-ons in the left section. On the right side, you will find MTB’s Greased Lightning in the Video add-ons section.
There is another way too. Instead of selecting Add-ons on the home screen, simply click it. Now, highlight Video add-ons on the following window. You will find your addon on the right side (check the image below)
This is the main screen of the MTB’s Greased Lighting Kodi addon. There are over 30 options to find streaming content. Besides the regular categories for Movies and TV Shows, the addon has several special categories like Movies Collections, Actor Collection, Boxset, etc.
You can even browse the movies and TV shows by decades starting from the 50s all the way up to 1999. There are several ‘Extended’ categories as well including Movie Time, Kung Fu, Kings of Horror, Urban, Fitness Zone, Kids Corner, Documentaries, Podcasts, Legends of Music, and more.
Each category may have multiple nested categories. For instance, when I click Movies, I find subcategories like Reviews and Trailers, Genres, Year, People, Languages, etc.
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.
Let me start by saying that MTB’s Grease Lightning add-on for Kodi is a must try. This addon has a huge and impressive library of content. While most add-ons focus on the latest movies and shows, Grease Lightning goes beyond and serves you an enormous line-up content going as far back as the 50s.
That’s not the only great thing about this addon though. It promises fast playback and delivers it too. It uses multiple scrapers that quickly scour the web for the working links and play the best available for you. You can also use it with Real-Debrid for better results. It’s not just the auto-play that’s fast. Even with so many categories, the navigation is lightning fast too. And, best of all, the addon almost always finds the working links for the chosen content.
