In this tutorial, we will learn to install the Grindhouse builds on Kodi. The steps provided here work on FireStick, Windows, Mac and other Kodi supported platforms.
Grindhouse Wiz is a collection of several builds for Kodi 18 as well as Kodi 17.6. There are several options to choose from depending upon your personal preferences and the device specs. I have used a couple of Grindhouse builds on Kodi and found them good enough to have their own guide and also to find a spot in our list of best builds for Kodi.
The Grindhouse builds pack several preloaded addons that already feature in our line-up of best Kodi addons. This means these builds offer plenty of streaming choices. Go ahead and try them.
How to Install Grindhouse Builds on Kodi
The third-party builds and addons can only be installed when you have enabled the Unknown Sources in the Kodi settings. Therefore, before I give you the installation steps, I need to guide you through the following:
– Kodi Settings is in the top-left corner. You need to click the gear icon to open it
– You will find System on the next window on Kodi 18. If you are a user of Kodi 17.6, click System Settings
– Now go to the left side of the next window and click Add-ons
– You should now see the Unknown Sources on the window. It must be switched ON to allow the installation of the Grindhouse Kodi builds
Click it to turn it ON
– Click Yes to confirm your intent to keep this option enabled
When this is taken care of, your Kodi is configured to allow the installation

You are now all set to start streaming. However, before you do, I would like to warn you that your online identity is unprotected and everything you stream is visible to your ISP and Government. This means, watching free movies, TV shows, Live TV, Sports might get you into legal trouble.
Most Kodi users are nowadays using a Kodi VPN to hide their IP from anyone who might be tracking you including your ISP and Government. 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, you can ask for the full refund.
NOTE: We do not encourage the violation of the copyright laws. A VPN should be used to protect your privacy, not for streaming pirated content.
So, before you start streaming on Kodi, here's how to get a VPN protection in 3 simple steps.
Step 1: Subscribe to ExpressVPN HERE.
Step 2: Click HERE to download and install the ExpressVPN app on your device.
Step 3: Open ExpressVPN app and 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 Look at the Grindhouse Kodi Builds
Grindhouse Wiz offers a decent collection of Kodi builds for both Kodi 18 and Kodi Leia. There are a variety of builds for all sorts of devices and user preferences. I like my builds to be minimal and simple. That’s why I chose the Best Kodi 18 Build. However, if you like more elaborate and vibrant builds, you will find plenty of options here.
Let’s take a quick look at the Best Kodi 18 Build.
This is the home screen of Kodi with the Best Kodi 18 Build. As I said – it is minimal. The home window just features the menu bar and submenu bar.
You will find streaming categories in the menu such as Movies, TV Shows, Live TV, etc. In the submenu, the related add-ons are displayed. This helps you get started instantly.
This Grindhouse build has some popular addons in its store. You will find DeathStar, Numbers, Deceit, SportsDevil, The Magic Dragon among others.
These addons pretty much cover all types of streaming, including Movies, Shows, Live TV, Sports, Kids videos, and more.
In the end…
Grindhouse has a collection of some good quality builds for all kinds of users. It also has options for a variety of Kodi devices. For instance, if you like something lightweight for your low-spec TV devices, such as FireStick, there is The Best Kodi 18 Build we installed during the demonstration. If you like it to be a bit feature-rich instead, there are a bunch of options too.
The Grindhouse builds are stable and work smoothly. They may not be as good as other build libraries, such as One Nation Portal, but they are doing a fairly decent job. You may want to give them a try!
