    When I am watching a movie on my TIVO from Netflix, is there any way to turn the subtitles on? The subtitle button on the TV doesn't do it,nor does the TIVO subtitle choice seem to work.

    No subtitles available via Tivo, unless you are watching a foreign movie. But, I know some titles have subtitles on the Wii.

    Only very few netflix streams have subtitles, and as said, none via Tivo. Google the subject, there are some pages that have lists of all of the subtitled streams.

    Thanks for the information. I'll see what I can find on Google.

    I must say that this makes the Netflix stream much, much less useful to those of us who no longer hear well.

    Netflix has posted on their blog that they expect 80% of streaming titles to support captions by the end of 2011. Also, mention is made that the Roku and Xbox 360 will be updated later in the year to support the display of CC, but there is no mention of a Tivo update.

    You can post URLs when you have 5 posts.

    That will be nice if they implement it on the Tivo. I use the close captions when watching regular TV and sure miss it Netflix.
