If you are a big fan of streaming unlimited content like us, you must have heard of Innovation Build on Kodi 18 Leia. This guide will take you through easy steps to download, install, and use Innovation Kodi Builds on Amazon Firestick/Firestick 4K/Firestick Lite/Fire TV Cube. 

Innovation Kodi Builds have a decent interface and are easy to use. They are moderate in size and are compatible with all devices. They offer a range of addons for streaming movies, shows, live TV, and live sports, which we think is a huge plus point for installing them. Moreover, you can also install the Build on other streaming devices, including Android TV boxes, computers, and smartphones.

Warning!

Kodi builds and addons are among some of the best apps to stream unlimited content; however, you could also land legal notice if you are caught binge-watching TV shows, movies, documentaries, and sports shows for free. Remember, your IP address is exposed. 

We highly recommend you use a top-tier VPN before streaming online on Kodi. A VPN can give you online privacy by keeping your identity anonymous. You will have to carefully choose a VPN service to protect your data and digital identity from government and criminal surveillance. 

We personally suggest using ExpressVPN. You can install ExpressVPN easily on various devices, including Amazon Firestick, your mobile, and your computer. You can take advantage of ExpressVPN’s 30-days free trial and save an additional 49% on cost. The best part is its 30-day money-back guarantee that allows you to ask for a refund. 

How to Install and Use Innovation Kodi Builds on Firestick

Let’s get started with easy steps to install the Innovation Kodi builds on Firestick. The first thing you have to do is open the Kodi app and change to settings that allow addons for Unknown Sources. Let’s begin!

  • Look for Unknown Sources on the right side of the same window. Click to turn it on.

Under Settings/System category, choosing Add-ons shows Unknown sources with an on-off slider button

  • You will get a warning message, Click Yes.

(Tip: These warning messages are for malicious builds. No worries, Innovation Kodi Builds are safe)

Again, it would be better to use a VPN service before you stream unlimited content for free with Kodi addons or Builds. You might get into legal trouble if you stream copyrighted content for free. A secure VPN will hide your IP address, keep your identity anonymous and protect you from criminal or government surveillance. 

NOTE: This article does not promote violation of copyright laws. However, with ample content to stream online, it’s not always easy to tell what is a legitimate source. We recommend you use ExpressVPN to avoid any legal trouble. It’s better to be safe than sorry. 

We have been personally using ExpressVPN, and we find it the most secure and fastest amongst all the VPNs we have used so far. Let me take you through easy steps to install ExpressVPN on Firestick:  

How to Install ExpressVPN on Firestick to Stay Safe

Step 1: Grab your Firestick remote and go to the home screen. 

Step 2: Look for the find option and then select Search underneath the find option.

How to Install ExpressVPN for Other Streaming Services

Want to install ExpressVPN on other streaming services? Well, you got it. ExpressVPN is compatible with a range of devices to use various services. Follow these steps to install: 

Step 8: Like mentioned earlier, get the ExpressVPN subscription. It’s best to get an annual subscription that has a 30-day money-back guarantee. 

Step 9: Download and install the ExpressVPN app on your desired streaming device. Refer to Steps 1 through 7 to use ExpressVPN on Firestick. 

Step 10: Once you install, sign in with your credentials. Click on the Power button to connect to a secure VPN server. That’s all! You’re now using the fastest and most secure connection.

That's a Wrap

Innovation Builds are easy-to-use Kodi addons that can offer plenty of streaming options. The Build doesn’t consume a lot of space, allowing you to use it on devices that have low-RAM. It also works on H.264, ISO, and 3D formats. 

The Innovation Builds Wizard right now offers only two builds. Although that’s not much, it can give you a satisfactory experience. However, it has several top Kodi addons offering movies, sports, kids’ shows, anime, live TV, sports, and a lot more. You can stream music in various formats. It also allows you to create, edit and delete a playlist. 

Whether you are a fan of movies, TV shows, live sports, or live TV, you can use Innovation Kodi Build to get many options. Once you’ve installed the Build, we suggest giving it a few minutes to download and install the updates.

Happy Streaming!
