How to add subtitles to movies and series in Popcorn Time

To add custom subtitles to Popcorn Time, first, open the program and select the content you want to see. Nowadays, a large part of the catalog of this service comes with a good deal of subtitled material, but not all the contents have subtitles (or subtitles in your language), as is the case shown below:

It is worth remembering that Popcorn Time is a P2P streaming service that uses the torrent network, which means that the availability of movies depends on the number of people sharing a particular movie at any given time. The most popular or recent movies will be easier to watch than the older or less popular ones.
