Subtitles on TalkTalk TV

Subtitles are a great accessibility feature that provide a text version of the dialogue on a TV programme or film. They're usually displayed at the bottom of the screen to be as unobtrusive as possible. We recommend checking the individual programme to see if subtitles are supported as not all broadcasters supply this service.

See below for instructions on how to turn subtitles on or off for each of our TV boxes.
