Most of the people are used to add subtitles while watching movies or tv shows. The good thing is, Kodi has an inbuilt feature to add subtitles to the media. It automatically searches for the subtitles and allows you to download it.

3. After that, Open Default TV Shows Service and tap on Get More. Here I would suggest you select OpenSubtitles.org.

Now, Open Default Movie Service and tap on Get More and select OpenSubtitles.org as well. You can try other services for subtitles like BSPlayer, Divxplanet, Ktuvit etc. but OpenSubtitles works just fine for me.
5. After doing that, Go back to Kodi’s Home. Go to add-ons then My Add-ons.
Select Subtitles. Tap on Opensubtitles.org then tap Configure. It would ask for login.
I never created any account and added a random password and it works. If it works for you then it is well and good otherwise, create a new account on OpenSubtitles Website and then login. After that, tap OK.
You are all done with initial settings for adding Subtitles on Kodi Krypton.
