Seren is a relatively new add-on that is still in development. Our first impressions are definitely on the positive side and it exceeded our expectations in terms of content. This is why we have decided to highlight the Seren addon in this guide and show you how to install it on Kodi.
Seren Kodi addon offers a vast library of movies and TV shows to its users. However, it requires you to link your Real-Debrid, Premiumize, or other Usenet host account in order to get the high-speed links with the highest quality possible. This eliminates the possibility of buffering and poor quality while streaming. You will quickly get access to 1080p and 4K streamable links. Seren is one of the few Kodi add-ons that support cached torrent playback.
Similar to other video-streaming Kodi add-ons, Seren’s user interface is text-based, comprising nested folders and sub-folders. It is totally fine and doesn’t affect the user experience. Everything is neatly categorized and you won’t have any issues finding your content.
Now that you have learned so much about the Seren addon, you might want to try it too. The step-by-step instructions in this guide will help you install the Seren addon on Kodi and set it up for further usage.
The guide provided below also works on amazon firestick, android, pc, android box, mobile, fire tv cube & all other Kodi supported platforms.

How to Setup Seren Kodi Addon with Real-Debrid
It is a compulsory step to set up the Seren add-on for streaming content. You can either use Real-Debrid or Premiumize to fetch high-quality streamable links. In my experience, I have found Real-Debrid much faster and reliable. My recommendation for you is to use Real-Debrid over Premiumize. Here’s how to set up Seren with Real-Debrid on Kodi:
- Launch the Seren add-on from Add-ons > Video add-ons.
- Open the Tools folder from the main directory.
- Select Open Settings Menu.
- Highlight the Scraping tab on the left, then select Real Debrid as your Preferred Cloud Location.
- Now highlight the Accounts tab and toggle on Enable Real Debrid under Real Debrid Account Settings.
- Scroll down and select Authorize Real Debrid… A pop-up window will appear with a unique code.
- Open a web browser on your smartphone or PC to go to the following link: https://real-debrid.com/device
- Enter the unique code in the field and click Continue. You have to log in to your Real-Debrid account. Once you are done, you will get the message “Real Debrid Authentication is completed” in Kodi.
You can now enjoy streaming the latest movies and TV shows on Kodi using Seren add-on.
Read this before you begin your streaming session with Seren Kodi add-on. When you stream from an open streamable source, your IP address and web activities are exposed on the web, leaving you vulnerable to hackers and phishing attacks. Some countries have enforced strict protocols for banning people from watching copyrighted content for free. This means you can face legal issues for streaming with third-party Kodi add-ons & Builds.
To stay away from copyrighted law I strongly suggest you to use a Kodi VPN while streaming. I always connect IPVanish VPN on my all streaming device including Kodi and firestick. IPvanish comes with a 7-day money-back guarantee. Follow the below steps to get a VPN protection on your device.
- Visit the official IPVanish website and sign up for a subscription.
- Download and install the IPVanish VPN app on your preferred device.
- Launch the app and log in with your IPVanish account.
- Connect to a VPN server of your choice and enjoy streaming on Kodi.
