What movies and shows have subtitles?

For now only selected on demand movies and shows have subtitles available – but we're adding more every day.

We've already added subtitles for over 750 movies, and all new movies we add have subtitles available. So keep an eye open for the S symbol on all your favourite films.

If you’ve got an Entertainment Month Pass, you can watch the following shows with subtitles:

  • Alan Partridge's Mid Morning Matters season 1
  • You, Me and the Apocalypse season 1 
  • Bring the Noise season 1
We're planning to add subtitles to many more of our shows in the coming months - check this page for more updates.


If you see an S symbol in the show information, then subtitles are available:
