When you add Real Debrid to Kodi, you get plenty of new streams for a particular movie or TV show. It is probably the most popular multihoster supported on Kodi platform and is compatible with almost all the regularly used add-ons. Real Debrid on Kodi also offers you plenty of full-HD stream sources you will not find anywhere else. It might just completely transform your Kodi experience. Real-Debrid itself is not an add-on but a tool to facilitate unrestricted-downloads through the add-ons you already use. Read the complete guide to enjoy the buffering free HD streaming on Kodi.
What is Real-Debrid
Real Debrid is a multihoster that offers its subscribers access to the premium streaming sources that no other users can get their hands on. The company promotes itself as the ‘Unrestricted Downloader’ that lets you optimize the download speed to the full potential of your Internet connection and gives you access to the premium hosts. With Real-Debrid enabled, you will have lots of new (and never seen before) streaming sources added to your list.
Note that Real Debrid is NOT an add-on; it is simply a multihoster that adds additional sources to your existing list. In order for it to work, you must already have at least one of the supporting add-ons. Thankfully, Real Debrid is supported by a number of best Kodi addons, such as Exodus, Covenant and more.
If you are looking for more new and working sources for full HD streaming, high-speed download, and fix for Kodi buffering issues, Real-Debrid is what you would like to consider. This service works with various media platforms. In this guide, we learn how to use Real Debrid on Kodi. Stay tuned!
