[Solved] English subtitles not showing on TV

Shows I was watching with English subtitles no longer show the subtitles. I checked other shows and there is no English subtitles on any show. This is on the app in Roku on my tv. They will play on my laptop and mobile. I checked the language preference and it is correct. This just started about 2 weeks ago.

  • Hi Kristoffer,

    Thank you for your fast reply. For some reason, the CC toggle had switched off. Don't know how, since I have never seen that screen until I followed your directions! Anyway, all is well and I am a much happier viewer!

    I appreciate all you and your team do to keep this channel working well for us.
