Great extension: you can easily insert arabic subtitles to any netflix series.

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 bitrate (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)…

Any thoughts or ideas about this? Leave a reply!
