Those looking for an torrent back-end interface may want to check into the Kodi Pulsar add-on. Get all of the details and instructions here!
The Kodi Pulsar add-on is a backend torrent interface that you can add onto Kodi. The actual Pulsar add-on is just a shell which grabs moves and TV show information from IMDB and TVDB and presents it along with a search feature. The real magic happens from the different Kodi Pulsar providers, which connect to different torrent websites and are used to grab all of the streams back into the Pulsar add-on. The biggest torrent sites in the world are supported, meaning you can pick your favourite torrent site and find a working stream from there, just like you would if you were to download a torrent.
Note: Because this add-on uses torrents, you share your stream with other users as you watch a show. If you are not comfortable with this, consider getting a VPN to protect your connection while you use the Pulsar add-on.

Kodi Pulsar Tips
- If you get no results navigating through TV Shows and Movies, try to search for the show. Sometimes I find that the IMDB and TVDB information for a show does not match the torrent file and you will get no results. For example, “The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon” returns no results for a lot of episodes, but if you search for “Jimmy Fallong SxxExx” you get lots of results.
- Use “SxxExx” to your advantage when searching. If you are looking for season 3, episode 12 of a show, include “S03E12” in your search, which is a universal naming convention and will help you find results.
- If you are particular about which link you watch, hover over a show and press menu > Choose Stream and it will give you a list of streams that your Pulsar providers have returned. Look at the file name and ensure you have the DVDRip you want.
- Learn what S and L mean. At the start of each file, the Kodi Pulsar add-on will show you how many seeders and leachers a show has. Seeders are users who have the show 100% downloaded and if a file has lots of them, it will be more reliable for you.
- Getting no results and not sure if the Kodi Pulsar add-on is to blame? On your computer/tablet, go to the torrent website you are using and search for the episode/movie yourself. If it has no results, then a stream simply does not exist for your show. If the website has results but Kodi doesn’t, try manually searching in different ways to get your result to show up.
