Where to get Russian media with English subs easily?

Postby Bones » Wed Jan 25, 2017 9:10 am

Lately, I've been tempted to start learning Russian. Does anyone know any legal and easy ways of getting your hands on Russian media with English subs.

One place I know of is the Youtube channel StarMedia. They have lots of films, series and documentaries with English subtitles.

As a native Russian speaker, I made some research for you and found some extra videos on Russian language with English subtitles. Btw, I was genuinely surprised that it's a quite complicated task even for a native speaker. :D So, here what I've got:

http://www.englishonlinefree.ru/videorus.html - scroll down the page as several videos are blocked from YouTube.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JNKX9WB_yak - a ten minutes long cartoon
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J4gpnI0AJNQ - some old 8 minutes long movie
After 10 minutes of searching through Google and YouTube I found a bunch long movies with English subtitles:

P.S. You can make a deeper search by typing query "русские фильмы с английскими субтитрами" into Google.
Good luck, buddy :)

First, I think that watching russian programs with L1 or english subtitles is a complete waste of time, that's my personal experience.
That being said, here's a few links I used (that was before I came to the aforementioned conclusion :roll: ):

- StarMediaEn (but I advise strongly the russian version with the russian subtitles)
- FILM.UA Group: Нюхач season 1, Нюхач season 2 (russian transcripts of that series in my old log), and other low quality stuff (look in the playlist: if the title is in english, the series have english subtitles)
- A lot of the movies of Мосфильм (movies of the soviet era) have subtitles in english or in russian
- https://3ears.com/ : A kind of russian Yabla: all is subtitled in english in a little window above the russian text. I personaly never used that site, just stumbled upon it a few weeks ago...
Edit: I forgot чебурашка, shame on me...it's such a classic, and a playlist of cartoons.
The cartoon Барбоскины is also subtitled in several languages, it's for russian children from 6 to 9 y.o, so you need a solid level in russian to understand it.
- Easy russian.
- НТВ offers russian subtitles on certain series and Tv shows (НТВ is rather geared toward alpha males who like guns, noice and dust :mrgreen:).
- Russian progress, a vlog for intermediate learners subtitled in russian.

Edited several times to correct dead links...

I like these:

  1. Tatiana Klimova's Russian Vodcast Russian Language Podcast
  2. Mosfilm's YouTube channel: http://www.youtube.com/user/mosfilm

This webpage of the School of Russian and Asian Studies has a long list of Russian resources. You can check it out.

Don't worry, I'm sure Krokodil Gena's tears regarding the oversight were only superficial...I'm a big fan of this little guy too. :)

Does anyone know of places to find subtitles separately? I am currently watching a number of films that don't have subtitles included, but I could really do with some. I figure there must be a website that provides subtitles for the hard of hearing or something? Has anyone come across anything?
