TRY THIS FIRST: With a small trick applied to your account settings on Netflix, you can get quite many Arabic subtitles – here is how it works.

If you have tried many tricks to add Arabic subtitles on Netflix and nothing worked for you, you should read on…

One of the big advantages of internet streaming is clearly its flexibility. Not only that you can choose when and where and what you want to see; you can also adjust the audio, namely, the language.

I like watching Netflix with subtitles to improve my foreign language skills. Unfortunately, however, there aren’t many Arabic subtitles available. But there is a nice solution to fix it as we will now examine.

You are lucky: Netflix offers it

If you are lucky, Netflix offers Arabic subs in your country. You can check if there is Arabic audio/subtitles available by clicking on this link:

There is a work-around: Use a google chrome extension

This always works not matter where you live. It is completely free and legal.

You need to use Chrome as a browser and follow these steps:

Step 1: Download the extension Super Netflix from the Chrome Webstore

Click HERE to download it for free!

Step 2: Go to Netflix

Now you should see some extra symbols on the right side of your screen.

Step 3: You need to download the files for the subtitles

They are available at

For example – search for: arabic stranger things. Hint: Always add arabic to your search string to find it quickly.

–> Download the file for the episode you want to watch.

Step 4: Got to Netflix and choose the TV series and episode you want to watch

Step 5: Now click on the first symbol (sign of a comment with three circles) on the right side of your screen


This will open a window. Go to the folder where you downloaded the subtitle file and choose it.

Step 6: You are done. Enjoy watching Netflix with Arabic.


For many (I’d say almost all popular TV series) there are ARABIC subtitles available on

  • Breaking Bad
  • Orange is the New Black
  • Stranger Things
  • Fargo
  • How to get away with murder

By the way – this also works for other languages such as Hebrew, Russian, or Mandarin Chinese.

Do you know any better justification for binge-watching than saying that you are actually studying Arabic? 😉

Remark There are other benefits if you install Super Netflix:
  • Change video bit rate (higher quality speed).
  • Skip intro automatically.
  • Five modes to change brightness, saturation, and contrast
  • Change Netflix streaming server (if streaming is slow)
  • Control volume with the mouse wheel.
  • Show streaming info

  1. Dear,

    Compliments for this fantastic website!

    I was curious if there are Arabic series available, which offer Arabic subtitles with it. For example, my favorite show is سجن النساء, yet understanding every word as a Dutch native is hard! I reckoned that hearing and reading the text would help a lot in my progress. Any idea?


    1. I doubt you’ll find that, as almost all Arabic productions don’t care for the subtitles, and also, the production is usually in a local dialect, not the standard Arabic (fus’ha)…
