Woo! Made the Hacking Netflix news! I really hope even more people learn about this hack now!


Thanks for the link! So glad to see this hack getting more attention.


Wow. I'd love captions. I am partially deaf. I am not deaf enough that I can't hear the tv but deaf enough that I have issues in some spots hearing what they are saying. So captions are always a plus for me. I'd LOVE to be able to use captions.


I thought captions were coming fall 2010, at least I think I remember that. I'd love to give my parents a roku and netflix, but for them english is second language and they miss too much without the subtitles.

I sometimes want subtitles myself, as some soundtracks are not all that great.

I am in the process of creating a dfxp repository for the deaf and hard-of-hearing (http://dfxp.tomfahy.org/). Netflix-compatible dfxp captions (English) may be downloaded from the link provided herein. I welcome additions to the repository. Feel free to contact me with any dfxp files that you have created.


NetFlix rep on phone told me that they will add CC / Subtitles on streaming movies for deaf / HOH customers who use Blue-Ray devices like Samsung, Sony and others on around December 25th, 2010.

I just installed a Roku and although I expected trouble with subtitles, I was appalled at how it is being handled. You can't tell whether something has closed captions unless you call up each film or tv episode. It would be so much easer if it had the CC symbol in the capsule summary. I wish Netflix would take this issue of captioning more seriously. A lot of people really are being left out. I'm one of twenty million Americans who are hearing impaired. And it isn't just old folks who are being left out. About 6 million people between the ages of three and 44 are hearing impaired. That's a lot of potential netflix/roku subscribers.
