I believe the release date for the new stick is mid-April. Not sure if they've given a firm date or not.

That's a fair point. It was noted in both the Roku and Netflix announcements when the new Netflix channel was released, and has been discussed extensively here, but if it's not mentioned on the website, I can see how it could be overlooked. Of course, the website doesn't provide any specifics about the Netflix channel, so I'm not sure how you'd know what features were available on the Roku 3 version, either, unless you'd done a bit of research first, which should have turned up the fact that it was Roku 3 only, at this point.
Either way, I believe the captioning functionality will be addressed in the not too distant future, whether it's via an update to the old Netflix channel or by way of introduction of the new Netflix channel on the lower powered devices.
