How to Install Maze Kodi Build on Firestick / Android TV Box

The Maze Wizard brings to you a whole new set of exciting builds for Kodi. You will find a variety of builds for all kinds of Kodi devices.

The Maze Family build is one of the best builds offered by the Maze Wizard. It is a lightweight and yet highly functional build. It offers smooth performance even if your device specs are moderate.

You will also find several working preinstalled video add-ons with this build including The Magic Dragon, Venom, DeathStar, and more.

We have also included the Maze to our list of top builds for Kodi.

Features of the Maze Kodi Build

Here are some of the highlights the Maze Family Build:

  • It is one of the most lightweight builds (124 MB installation data)
  • Works smoothly on all Kodi devices, even the ones with low-RAM (such as FireStick)
  • User-friendly interface with easy layout
  • Clutter-free interface
  • Comes with several useful addons for video streaming

Kodi Addons / builds offer unlimited streaming content, but could also get you into legal trouble if caught streaming free Movies / TV shows / Sports. Kodi users are strongly advised to always connect a VPN while streaming online. A good Kodi VPN hides your identity, bypasses government surveillance, geo-blocked content, and ISP throttling (which also helps in buffer-free streaming).

I use ExpressVPN which is the fastest and most secure VPN. It is very easy to install on any device including Amazon FireStick. Also, it comes with a 30-day money-back guarantee. If you are not satisfied, you can always ask for a refund. ExpressVPN also has a special deal where you get 3-months free and save 49% on its annual plans.

Here’re the reasons why you should always use a VPN

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.
