It is really dissappointing that most on-demand material doesn't have subtitles available. It is particularly annoying for some of the high quality drama that is available. It is an issue for hearing impaired viewers that makes it almost impossible to follow some content.  I see that some of the programming has subtitles when you view on a device.

I don't see any technical issue, as most streaming services can and do provide subtitles. 

Comments/suggestions?

Hi 

While Subtitles would be an amazing feature to have, this is decision is really up to the Broadcasters who provide the apps and captions to make this on Freeview OnDemand.

Its best to contact them directly to find out more. 

Kindest Regards

Hi Josh

Had a bit of a play yesterday and discovered that quite a few On-Demand  shows do have subtitles, but only if you view via a browser. The same shows don't have subtitles if I use the app in either my Panasonic box or DishTV box. So, looks like an upgrade to the app is needed!

On to it, Josh!
