So, if you have Wi-Fi, consider buying a Google 'Chromecast' HDMI-dongle
(available at the Google Store or Amazon.com, etc.)
Then, you could simply "tab-cast" this video onto your TV, rather than viewing on a PC or tablet.
Here are Google's methods for"tab-casting" from each of 3 platform categories
("Computer", "Android", "iPhone/iPad")
Hint: For finer-control of TV-screen layout, first try a "Computer" platform
(Chrome-OS or Windows OS), rather than a mobile device (Android or iOS)

Step 1: Launch desired movie on the 'PC' device. Select the 'full-screen' control.

Step 2: Use the 'Cast to ...' option, in the upper-right menu, in Chrome-browser,
to connect to the chromecast device.

Note: Instead, if you use a mobile device (Android or iOS) as 'Chromecast controller',
you'll get less layout control (and captions will probably not pass-thru to TV)
This content should be viewable in all major browsers...i.e. Chrome, Opera, Firefox, Safari, Edge/IE

The soft captions/subtitles used here are VTT (text) files, which were converted from SRT (text) files.
[ There's a free SRT->VTT converter avail at: https://atelier.u-sub.net/srt2vtt/ ]
SRT files (in many various languages) are available at "subscene.com".
