So there's comments from January saying subtitles will soon be implemented... 11 months later and I still don't see any subtitle option? Will this ever happen?
Welcome to the forum.
Unfortunately NOW TV doesn't provide subtitles on its content at this time.
It's my understanding that subtitles aren't available on NOW TV on the Roku boxes either, although the Roku box does have the ability to show subtitles where apps support them, such as Netflix.
Subtitles appear automatically on foreign language programming such as Jordskott but aren't available on any other programming.
I'm afraid I don't have a Roku box so can't comment on any programmes there, however NOW TV have never claimed to provide subtitles on any platform, and in regards your question about the NOW TV box there's no way to get subtitles on the NOW TV app, other than the exception above.
Are you sure you are getting subtitles with all content in the NOW TV app?
@bathgatebairn84 NOW TV don't have subtitles. I'm not sure what you are watching on your Roku box when you think you are seeing them, but it can't be any of the content from NOW TV (I tested my Roku box earlier, subs fine on Amazon Video, but nothing on NOW TV).
Other apps on the NOW TV box can show subtitles if they support them (YouTube, BBC iPlayer) as Sky haven't limited the boxes in that respect.
I am so unhappy. I purchased NOW TV - advised from Curry staff.
to my disappointment, it does not have subtitles. was looking forward to a nice night in with a movie.
I have wasted my money.
Me born deaf !! need subtitles. It is my life.
I will inform all deaf communities not to buy Now TV.
So Sky owns Now TV. A multi-million pound company and they cannot do a simple thing like put subtitles on. It's nonsense that there are any technical issues preventing this, not after they have been looking at this for years. Are they seriously expecting us to believe that they cannot fix this? Rubbish. Their main Sky service has subtitles, so in my opinion they are hoping that customers who like the NowTV content will just buy the more expensive Sky services if they want subtitles. It's underhand, it's disrespectful towards deaf and hard of hearing customers (of which I am the latter) and the fact they keep repeating since 2012, some 4 years that this is being looked into is incredible. I am furious about this.
