    I am watching My Healing Love and the Roku Viki app and had English subtitles up to episode 23.

    I've logged out and back in and still no subtitles..... : (

    This has not been fixed on my end. Have tried logging in and out twice and checked all settings. Looks like others were having this issue. Have they reported that it has been solved for them?

    I tried closing out of it, signing back in, reinstalling, logging in through both methods ( username/password and generate code ) and still no subtitles on my end. Any other suggestions?

    This is happening to me now. I'm at least glad it's not just me. Everything else is fine. Just no subs at all.

    After any interuption : ad or buffering, captions seem to drop out or language setting needs to be reset thru CC setting Im looking for english. Sometimes going to history and back would work, but watching Tokyo Tarareba Girls on ROKU and had to stop .tried all suggestions here. Happens on other shows too. Please fix

    Is there any estimate on when this issue will be fixed? I have deleted and reinstalled the channel, logged in, logged out, logged in, all with no positive results.

    Ok, so, I have 2 Roku devices. The standard roku thumb drive type and the roku ultra.

    Last night while watching the Chinese drama "Daughter Back" on the standard roku, in order to see the closed captions, I had to:
    Press the *
    Check to insure Closed Caption was set to "Always On"
    Set language to "2" English
    This was necessary for each of the 1st three episodes.

    However, today, using the roku ultra, no amount of the following restored the subtitles:
    Performing the above procedure
    Reloading roku app
    Signing out/in
    Reinstalling app

    Interesting to note though, is that the previous procedure still works on the standard roku. Go figure.

    My captions are out, too.  Tried uninstalling and reinstalling Viki Roku channel.  No luck.

    I have been able to get my subtitles to work now. It is not working correctly. (The issue is not solved). When a show is playing, I use the * menu to go to Accessibility. Once there, I reselect English as my language. It takes a few seconds for this to work and has not worked during opening credits. Only when the actual show starts. It is a pain and I have to do this every time I watch a new episode. I had already removed and reinstalled the app and logged in and out multiple times before trying this. Not sure if this will work for anyone else but it's worth a try.

    I am here as well had troubles early this morning checked back again subtitles not working on Viki through Roku...I backed out of episode went back nothing. Took of CC and re put them back nothing. Logged out and back in nothing...uninstalled and then re installed still nothing. But if you go online no app the subtitles work...how does this make sense???

    Whoo-Hoo! I discovered a way to get the subtitles to display.
    First, confirm the Closed Caption is set to "Always on". Then scroll down to "Accessibility" , followed by scrolling down to "Language", then switch between "English" and "German", or any other language until the "Closed Captions" appear. Worked so far for 5 episodes.
