Danish Subtitles on Netflix

I recently found out that it is possible to get Danish language subtitles on virtually all netflix offerings (on Canadian netflix, at least) by turning your netflix language setting to Danish! I have been struggling with the lack of offerings after finishing The Bridge and Rita (both of which I highly recommend), because Danish isn't normally listed as a subtitle option, even on shows IN Danish. If you go to your account settings though, it is possible to change that to Danish, which unlocks the option of Danish subtitles on all netflix originals, and many other shows. It isn't the most efficient way to learn, but if you're going to be binge-ing a lot of netflix over the holidays anyway it certainly can't hurt!

Just a note, some movies and shows (mostly animated) are also dubbed in Danish (off the top of my head, I watched Shadowhunters in Danish, as well as How to Train Your Dragon, and Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs), but sometimes the subtitles don't directly match up to what they're saying. So don't worry if what you're hearing is different to what you're reading - from what I know, the subtitles and dubbing-script are translated separately, hence the difference.

To check which movies and series have Danish audio, go to 'Gennemse', - 'Lyd og undertekster'. Once there, you can select Lyd + Dansk, and all the available movies + shows will be shown. :)

Here's a catalogue of movies/series on Netflix with good subtitles, sorted by language: http://languagelearningwithnetflix.com/catalogue.html

Also, here's a free extension that adds bilingual subs, pop-up dictionary, and improved playback control: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/lln-language-learning-wit/hoombieeljmmljlkjmnheibnpciblicm

This is good to know, thanks for sharing! It's so frustrating to be able to watch Danish movies but only get English subtitles.

I found a couple of shows on Netflix in Danish, they are Rita, Hjørdis, and Dicte.
