What is Real Debrid on Kodi & FireStick and why do you need it?

Real Debrid is a premium link generator.

If you use FireStick apps or Kodi addons, you must have noticed that most of them generate multiple free streaming links.

You click one of the links to watch the movie or episode.

However, the free links are often not reliable are usually of low-quality.

Real Debrid gives you access to several high-resolution and better-performing streaming links.

It makes your streaming experience a lot more enjoyable.

Benefits of Real Debrid:

  • Higher quality/higher resolution links
  • Links from fast servers. Reduce buffering considerably
  • Reliable links that offer considerably better performance than the free links
  • Offers torrent streaming
  • Works with several FireStick APKs and Kodi addons

How to sign up for Real Debrid (Pricing & Signup steps)

First, we take a look at the Real Debrid price plans; next, we go through the signup process.

Real Debrid Pricing

Here are the Real Debrid plans you can choose from:

  1. $3.38 (15 Days) | Fidelity Points – 150

  3. $10.13 (90 Days) | Fidelity Points – 450

Why you buy a subscription or every time you renew the subscription, the Fidelity Points are added to your account depending upon the plan.

Meaning, you get 210 days (180 + 30).

To avoid any legal troubles, I strongly recommend you use a VPN that works great both with FireStick, Kodi, and all your devices.

Set up Real Debrid on Kodi

Make sure you install the addon with which you want to use Real Debrid before following the setup steps below.

Method 1: Set Up Real Debrid on Kodi from Within the Addon

Most Kodi addons have a built-in option to set up and authorize Real Debrid from within.

You just need to find the right option within the addon settings.

Note: If the addon does not have a built-in Real Debrid option, go to the next section for set up steps.

I am going to use The Crew and the Diamond Shadow addons to show you how to set up Real Debrid.

Follow these steps:

1. From the home screen of Kodi, go to Add-ons > Video add-ons to access all your installed addons

Now, click and open the desired addon (I am opening The Crew Kodi addon)

    I would like to know if this would help my grandson out. He is a competitive gamer. He is on a team with his friends that he went to school with and getting any extra speed should help out because when the phone company ran the wiring they Jerry Rigged the line running toward his room. It has terrible speeds and if one of the other grandkids gets on line it all but shuts him down because of the lowering of speed that happens when someone else gets on the same line.
    Am I correct in thinking using your service could and should give him a better Internet speed?
    Best Regards

      Hi John,

      Real Debrid is for streaming, not gaming. It will not improve the internet connection speed. Your grandson will need a better quality internet connection for a better gaming experience.
