How to Install Seren Kodi Addon on Firestick 2023

This tutorial will show how to install the Seren add-on on Kodi 20 Nexus. The first thing to spot is that the installation method is the same for all devices, be it FireTVStick, FireTVStick 4K, Mobiles, Tablets, Laptops, Raspberry Pi, etc.

Seren is one of the popular Kodi add-ons for movies and TV shows and came into life in 2018. The add-on focuses on user-friendliness in particular and gives all the basic features. Another critical point is that the Seren add-on gives high-quality streaming links.

Most importantly, it would help if you took a premium subscription of Premiumize or Real-debrid for streaming on Seren. After a subscription, you must integrate the add-on with Premiumize or Real-debrid account. On the negative side, the Seren does not work without a premium subscription from Real-debrid or Premiumize.

Attention, Cord-cutters!

I want to warn you that whatever you stream online is visible to the Government, ISPs, and Third Parties. Following are some of your details:-

IP Address:
Location: Virginia US
ISP: AS14618 Amazon.com, Inc.

You must be aware that streaming copyrighted content without a license is illegal and may land you in legal trouble.

I urge you to comply with the rules and regulations in your country, but what if you land up streaming illegal content unintentionally?

Hence, I suggest using the most secure VPN, i.e., IPVanish which has military-grade encryption. In addition, IPVanish enables buffering-free streaming, hides your IP address, Location, and bypasses the geo-restrictions and bandwidth throttling.

Special Deal: Only $3.33/Month

Another key point is that the add-on also supports Trakt integration so that you can watch videos and movies of your choice. In addition, you can configure “Smart Play Settings” when integrating the Trakt account with Seren.

The add-on even supports torrents. Hence, using a VPN becomes very much necessary. I strongly recommend using PrivateInternetAccess VPN, which has unbreakable military-grade encryption and is an award-winning VPN.

Finally, if you need an add-on that works without buffering, Seren is the best choice.

Before you start streaming on Kodi, I would like to warn you once again that we do not know the source of Kodi Repositories, Wizards, Builds, and Addons and from where they fetch the streams.

The content you stream on Kodi may be copyrighted and may land you in legal trouble because ISPs, Government, and authorized companies may monitor your online activities like streaming copyrighted movies, videos, TV shows, live shows, animes, etc.

To stay protected, and to get an exceptional streaming experience, I suggest you use IPVanish which is the fastest, most secure, and military-grade encryption VPN on the planet. In addition, IPVanish hides your original IP address, and encrypts your internet connection, bypasses bandwidth throttling and geo-restrictions.

I have been personally using IPVanish for a couple of years and what I can say is IPVanish is the best VPN in all aspects for all devices. I did not face any problems with any app or device.

Note: VPNHacks.com does not support or encourage piracy and copyright infringements in any form. You should abide by the rules and regulations in your country. We just want to protect you because sometimes you may land up streaming copyrighted content unintentionally.

IPVanish Hot Deal: Subscribe for as low as $3.33/Month

Taking an IPVanish VPN Subscription is really simple.

1.       First, subscribe to IPVanish by clicking here.

Most of all IPVanish comes with a 30-day money-back guarantee. You can get a full refund if you are not satisfied (I do not think you will be) with IPVanish and they do not ask for any reason.

2.       Once you subscribe IPVanish, download the IPVanish app and open it. Enter your e-mail and password and click on the “Log In” button.

3.       Once you are signed in, select the VPN Server location that you want to connect to and click on the connect option.
