Here is a free software to download subtitles by right-clicking on a TV show or movie. It is named as “SubChan“. It shows the list of available subtitles for the selected TV show or movie and then you just need to click on any of those subtitles. After that, the subtitle file is downloaded automatically in the same location where your movie or TV show file is stored. The subtitles are saved as SRT format, which is a very popular file format for subtitles. It also supports many popular video file formats to download subtitles like MP4, MKV, etc.
This is a simpler, if not simplest, subtitle downloader software I have come across. There are already many subtitle downloader software (check this list), command line tool, and websites also available but if you are looking for something easier, then you should give a try to this software.
Above you can see some subtitle files downloaded by me for movies and TV show using this software. I wasn’t able to find the source from where it fetches subtitles but subtitles were good as there was proper syncing between video and subtitles.
Note: This free movie and TV show subtitle downloader software is currently in beta version but it worked great for me. Also, currently it works for one TV show or movie at a time but it will also provide batch subtitle download feature soon.
