Movie and TV settings


To enable or disable subtitles on the foreign film you're watching, click on the CC button in the bottom left corner of the video player. For movies that are subtitled in many languages, you may need to click on the CC button, then scroll through the closed captioning menu to see if captions in your language are offered. In some cases, movies have permanent subtitles, which cannot be turned off.

Videos with dubbed audio will have "Dubbed" indicated in the title of the movie.
