How To Enable Automatic Subtitles On Kodi

Some popular Kodi add-ons like Genesis have the option to automatically search for subtitles but most of the times those subtitles are not exactly the ones we need. In this guide, we are going to enable automatic subtitles on Kodi by installing AutoSubs and a couple of subtitle addons so you can watch all your TV shows and movies with subtitles.

Note: OpenSubtitles addon is no longer available on Kodi Official Repository, you must use the 3rd-party repository like SuperRepo to be able to install it.
