Closed captions and subtitles
If you prefer special accessible captions, such as subtitles for the deaf and hard of hearing (SDH), you can set Apple TV to list them instead of standard subtitles and captions. You can also customize the look of subtitles and captions.
Note: Not all videos include closed captions.
Turn on Closed Captions and SDH. In Settings , go to General > Accessibility > then turn on “Closed Captions and SDH.” Or, use the Accessibility Shortcut. See Accessibility Shortcut.
Customize your subtitles and captions. In Settings , go to General > Accessibility > Style, where you can choose an existing caption style or create a new style based on your choice of:
Font, size, and color
Background color and opacity
Text opacity, edge style, and highlight
