How to Add Bilingual Subtitles to Netflix Videos

Bilingual subtitles simply mean you can see subtitles in two languages at the same time. If you want to learn a certain foreign language, watching videos with double subtitles is a great way to do so. As you know, Netflix gives users a choice of audio tracks and subtitles in a variety of different languages. But you can only select a certain audio track and a certain subtitle file. When you are watching a Netflix video online, you will find that it is unable to choose to display two subtitles at the same time. Don't worry, this article will show you how to download two SRT subtitle files from Netflix locally, then merge the two subtitles into one subtitle file, import the subtitles and play the video on VLC Media Player.
