Here's hoping for the day when the subtitles are distinct entities and can be customized.

Exactly. The Roku folks have stated that if Netflix offers captioning then a firmware update will support the new feature.jlsoaz wrote:I do not agree with Wondercow's characterization of this topic as overdone in this forum.
Do you complain to Sony that CBS doesn't offer colourised verions of Leave it to Beaver?

Even if the forum is old and established ... I still would avoid discouraging the opening of threads or discussion ... This is partly on the general principle of being encouraging to other forum participants ... To me it is a matter of practicing some form of the golden rule toward other web discussion participants. To some extent, it is perhaps worth adding, the repetition of topics and discussions is inherent to web-based discussion, and to some extent, all discussion ... I think the issue is comparatively fresh, and so I hardly think the matter warrants a discussion-weary approach toward someone asking an innocent newbie question.
I may also continue to comment, on occasion, in discussions here on this board of the extent to which I think the service would be improved by better subtitle, captioning, bonus-audio-track and other-bonus-feature support.Even if Roku is entirely dependent on content providers for progress on these matters, they may in some cases be able to benefit from hearing all feedback and may in some cases be able to use this feedback to negotiate for new content providers or changes with established content providers for what they would like to see from those content providers, as good partners with a common interest in satisfying customers
