I've read that my Apple TV 2 can't play movies in iTunes Extras format. Does this mean that the movie won't play at all, or just that the extras can't be accessed on the ATV 2?

 

If it's the latter, are the closed captions part of the 'extras' in iTunes Extras files, or will the captions play on the ATV 2, as they do with the (very few) captioned movies in the iTunes Store that aren't in iTunes Extras format.

 

Thanks in advance,

    Closed captioning is not part of iTunes extras. Whilst there are not all that many movies with closed captioning, those that have it can be played whether or not the content has iTunes extras.

    This is a user to user community, Apple are unlikely to read your comments, if you have any suggestions that you think might enhance the Apple TV you can send Apple your feedback here.

    You might try the iTunes link below, however my feeling is that it is the content providers (i.e. the movie studios) that decide whether closed captioning is added to content or not.
