OpenSubtitles is one of the most popular subtitle services on the internet, offering subtitles in dozens of languages for all the latest movies and TV shows. We are fortunate enough to have been chosen as the official source for the OpenSubtitles plugin. This is the official version of the OpenSubtitles plugin, and does not require you to login. No matter what language you speak, the OpenSubtitles subtitles plugin is likely your best bet. It should only take a few seconds to setup this subtitles addon for Kodi, and will allow you to enjoy automated subtitles for whatever you choose to watch.

The OpenSubtitles Kodi addon is located within our TV ADDONS community repository. It is developed by the OpenSubtitles team themselves and as such doesn’t really ever require updates. The instructions below will guide you through configuring our Fusion Installer, and then our new TV ADDONS repository, followed by the OpenSubtitles subtitles addon for Kodi. Once you’ve installed the OpenSubtitles plugin, we’ll also explain how to setup automated subtitles in the language of your choice.
