Can I watch NOW TV with subtitles?

You can view subtitles for selected on demand movies and shows on the Sky Cinema Month Pass and Entertainment Month Pass.

How do I know if subtitles are available?

For now only selected on demand movies and shows have subtitles available – but we're adding more every day. If you see an S symbol in the show information, then subtitles are available.



Subtitles are currently available on all supported devices except for PC or Mac.

Subtitles are available for over 1000 on-demand movies on the Sky Cinema Month Pass, and all new movies added to the service will have subtitles.

On the Entertainment Month Pass, hundreds of on-demand shows have subtitles available at the moment.

We'll be adding subtitles to even more of our shows in the future. Keep an eye on this page for further updates.

Got a NOW TV Box or NOW TV Smart Stick? Just start watching the movie or show, and press the star (*) button on your NOW TV remote. 

Alternatively, use the arrow buttons on your NOW TV remote to select the speech bubble symbol in the bottom right-hand corner of the screen.

If you're watching NOW TV on a Samsung TV, PS4 or Xbox One, just select the speech bubble symbol using either your console or TV remote.

Some devices have a setting to turn on subtitles to display automatically whenever they’re available.

On a NOW TV Box or NOW TV Smart Stick

  1. Go to your homescreen and select Settings from the main menu.
  2. Select Subtitles, and then select On
  3. You’ll see a tick to indicate subtitles are now turned on for all available movies and shows.

You can also turn on subtitles for all available shows on the devices below. Just look for the Subtitles setting on the main menu.

  • PS4
  • XBox One
  • LG TV
  • Samsung TV

We're aware of an issue where subtitles are appearing on some iOS devices automatically. To turn subtitles off for all movies and shows on your iPhone or iPad, just follow these steps:

  1. Go to Settings, then General.
  2. Select Accessibility, and then Subtitles and Captioning.
  3. Switch off the Closed Captions + SDH setting.

If you can't see the option to turn on subtitles on your iOS or android device, you might need to update to the latest version of the NOW TV app first.
