There’s a bug on Subtitles, on the NowTV stick at least and maybe on other NowTV devices, where the global setting doesn’t stick, and you have to turn them on show by show.
So don’t assume because they don’t show up that they aren’t there - press the * button and see if they are there to turn on.
Once turned on, they will last for the show you are watching and any automatic follow-on episodes, but leave the show/series, and they will be gone again.
NowTV have been made aware of the issue (thanks, @schnapps)
