Hi. I just purchased the movie Tangled from the iTunes store for my daughter. When we play the movie on Apple TV, closed captions appears through-out the movie. I tried pressing and holding the large centre button on the iTunes remote (the one used to select chapters), because this button is used to select subtitle language for movies that have subtitles. But with Tangled, after pressing and holding the button, only the chapter selection menu appears. Does anyone know how to turn off the closed captions on this movie, or on movies in general? Thank you

MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.6.6)

    Try turning subtitles off in the settings menu of the ATV2.

    We just hired a movie. BLACK SWAN. it was spoilt by subtitles on the whole time. I just tried the suggestion of turning off in settings and it still showed subtitles and sound captions. So sorry the suggestion didn't work.. I have a first GEN Appletv

    Hi - experienced the same problem whilst watching Black Swan .... quite annoying !

     

    However, found out how to remove 'Closed Captions' .... Go to settings on your Apple TV / Audio / Closed Captions / On/Off

     

    Hope this helps.

    Thank you for helping to get rid of the Closed Captioning on the Apple TV movies. Once I found the right combination of menus and that Audio/Video menu was where Closed Captioning was to be found, viewing the movies became cool again!

    I had the same problem and I fix it this way: Go to Ipad Video / Close Captioning / OFF...
