What is Premiumize?
Premiumize is a premium link generator and torrent downloader service. It works by crawling torrent sites and file hosters to find high-quality source files, then makes those files available for streaming through supported apps and addons.
The key benefits of Premiumize include:
No buffering: Premiumize only indexes the best quality torrents and hoster links to avoid buffering issues. This results in smooth, high-quality streams.
4K and 1080p links: Premiumize finds HD and ultra HD torrents and streams in resolutions up to 4K.
Torrent downloads: You can use Premiumize to download torrents directly to their cloud storage. Downloads are optimized for streaming and saved for later viewing.
VPN and antivirus: Downloads are scanned for malware and transferred through secure VPN servers for privacy.
CDN streaming: Premiumize uses a global content delivery network (CDN) to route streams through the fastest servers. This avoids peak traffic and reduces buffering.
In short, Premiumize takes the hassle out of finding and streaming high-quality content. While free Kodi addons index some HD links, Premiumize gives you a much larger library of optimized streams.
Premiumize offers several features and tools that enhance the streaming experience:
Premiumize gives you 1TB of secure cloud storage for torrent downloads. Rather than downloading torrents directly to your device, you can save them to your Premiumize cloud for streaming:
- Downloads are scanned for malware before saving to the cloud
- Premiumize optimizes video quality and streams downloads through their CDN
- Access your cloud library from any device
- Share files or create a private stream for someone else
This takes the load off your home network and allows you to build a cloud library of content.
You can add .torrent files or magnet links to the Premiumize downloader remotely. This will download the torrent in the background so you can immediately stream the content rather than waiting for the full download.
Remote downloading is perfect for larger files since it won‘t bottleneck your home network.
The Premiumize RSS downloader can automatically grab torrents from RSS feeds as they are posted. Simply add your favorite RSS feeds and Premiumize will download new torrents that match your keywords.
This creates an automated, hands-off system to build your cloud library.
Premium Link Generation
The core purpose of Premiumize is generating premium streaming links from hosters, Usenet, and torrent sites. Premiumize dedicates significant server resources to crawling the web for the best quality files.
The advantage here is that Premiumize weeds out low-quality links that typically buffer on free Kodi addons. The result is smooth streaming in HD and 4K resolutions.
Premiumize offers reasonable pricing starting at €9 per month. Here are the available subscription options:
- 1 month – €9
- 3 months – €8 per month
- 6 months – €7 per month
- 12 months – €6 per month
For the best value, the 12-month plan brings the monthly cost down to €6 (about $7 USD).
Payment options include all major credit cards and Bitcoin.

Integrating Premiumize with Kodi
To connect your Premiumize service with Kodi, you first need to authorize the account within Kodi. This links your Premiumize credentials to generate premium streams.
Then you can enable Premiumize in individual Kodi addons to display premium links. The process only takes a few minutes.
Authorizing Premiumize in Kodi
Here are the steps to authorize Premiumize within Kodi:
In Kodi, go to Addons > My Addons > ResolveURL > Universal Resolvers > Settings.
Scroll down and select Universal Resolvers under the Accounts section.
Choose (Re)Authorize My Account under the Premiumize.me resolver.
You‘ll see a notification that an authorization code was generated. Make note of this code.
Pull up Premiumize.me in your browser and log into your account.
Go to the Device page under your account settings.
Enter the authorization code from Step 4 and click Submit.
Click Allow on the device authorization prompt.
This links your Premiumize account to Kodi. Now when you enable Premiumize in an addon, it will index your premium streams.
Adding Premiumize to a Kodi Addon
Once your account is authorized in Kodi, go to the addon you want to use Premiumize with:
In the addon, click on Tools or Settings.
Open the ResolveURL settings.
Enable Universal Resolvers if it‘s not already on.
Scroll down and enable Premiumize under Universal Resolvers accounts.
Go back to the main addon menu and choose a source like Movies or TV shows.
You‘ll now see premium links from your Premiumize account in the stream list. These links are marked as "Premium" in the addon and avoid the buffering problems of free links.
Most popular video addons like Seren, The Oath, Crew, and Venom are configured to work with Premiumize out of the box. Just enable Universal Resolvers with your authorized account and you‘re set.
Integrating Premiumize with Streaming Apps
Besides Kodi, you can connect your Premiumize account to various Android streaming apps like Cinema HD, BeeTV, CyberFlix TV, and more.
The process is similar to Kodi:
Open the app settings.
Find the option to integrate Real-Debrid or premium services. This may be called "ResolveURL" or "Universal Resolvers" like in Kodi.
Enter your Premiumize API key when prompted. To find this, log into your Premiumize account and go to the API page.
Select Premiumize from the list of resolvers.
Return to the main app menu and pick a video source to view premium streams from your account.
The steps can vary somewhat across apps, but generally follow the same authorization process. Enabling Premiumize unlock tons of high-quality streaming sources.
Premiumize vs Real-Debrid
Real-Debrid is the main competitor to Premiumize in the premium link space. Here‘s how the two services compare:
- Real-Debrid is cheaper at just $3 USD per month if you buy a full year. Premiumize starts at $7 USD per month.
- Both extract 1080p and 4K streams from hosters and torrents. Video quality is excellent on each platform.
- Premiumize may index a few more niche torrents, but Real-Debrid has wider addon support and more total links.
- Premiumize includes extras like cloud storage, while Real-Debrid focuses solely on linking.
- Speeds are consistently fast on both services. Most users see little difference in streaming performance.
Overall, Premiumize adds more bells and whistles through its cloud tools, but sticks to the core function of supplying premium links like Real-Debrid. Either service will significantly boost your streaming quality and make buffering a thing of the past.
Here are some common issues and fixes for using Premiumize with Kodi:
