It’s also a very customizable program, which means you can add your own media and even install your own plugins. It’s not hard to learn how to use Kodi, and it only takes a few clicks to get rolling.
The Kodi (formerly XBMC) media player is free to download and use. The app can be installed on a variety of devices including the Xbox, the Raspberry Pi and the Amazon Fire, to name but a few. But one of the best Kodi addons is called Greased Lightning. If you haven’t heard of it, the addon provides a massive library of movies and TV shows that can be streamed right to your TV.
In this tutorial you will learn how to install MTB’s Grease Lightning addon on Kodi. The addon has been renamed Greased Lightning Reborn. This addon works on FireStick, FireStick 4K, Android TV devices, mobile phones, computers and other platforms that support Kodi.

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 use the Kodi Greased Lightning addon from MTB
Now that the addon is installed, you want to use it for streaming. Let me give you a brief overview of this addon.
First, let’s see how you can access the Kodi Greased Lighting addon.
You can find the addon on the Kodi home screen. Just check the add-ons in the left pane. On the right side, you’ll find MTB’s Greased Lightning in the Video Add-on section.
There is another way. Instead of selecting add-ons on the home screen, just click on them. Now check the Video Enhancement option in the next window. You will find your addon on the right side (see image below).
This is the startup screen for the Kodi Greased Lighting addon from MTB. There are more than 30 options for finding streaming content. Besides the usual categories for movies and TV shows, the addon offers special categories like movie collections, actor collections, box sets, etc.
You can even watch movies and TV shows by decade, from the 1950s to 1999. There are also several expanded categories such as Movie Time, Kung Fu, Kings of Horror, Urban, Fitness Zone, Kids Corner, Documentaries, Podcasts, Legends of Music and more.
Each category can have multiple nested categories. For example, when I click on movies, I find subcategories like reviews and trailers, genres, year, people, languages, etc.
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.
