    some of them do.  To turn it on for appleTV, hold the select button and select the option.  For iPad, it should be in the video section of your settings.

    Hi pereanver


    iPad can show movies or television shows with Closed Captions (CC) for us being hearing impaired, but you have to understand that not all movies or TV shows on iTunes have CC. Most of them do, but not all of it.


    There are far more DVDs with subtitles for the hearing impaired than there are on iTunes, of course maybe Apple could replace movies that do not have CC with ones that now do have CC, but Apple and iTunes are rather kind of a step backwards against that of DVDs and Blu-Rays.


    In iTunes, just click or tap on a movie you are interested in, to go to the page about this movie, then look for CC next or  below the title, often usually next to the age cert/rating.


    For example:


    Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan

    12  CC


    Back to the Future

    PG  CC


    Just look for the CC logo.
