LG TV - Closed Captions (Netcast)

  • Whether you're hard-of-hearing or just want to watch the TV with the sound off.

  • Closed captioning is a convenient feature that helps you enjoy a variety of programming.

  • Closed captioning is an optional service provided for select programs that puts text for the dialogue and certain other information on the screen.

  • The signal is included with the movie or TV show and needs to be decoded in order to be displayed.

  • If you use a cable or satellite set-top box, this decoding is done by the box.

  • So you'll need to turn this feature on in the settings menu of your particular device.

  • If you use an Over-The-Air antenna or a direct cable connection without a cable box, the television will be decoding the closed captioning signal. As long as the content provides this feature.

  • To turn on this feature of your LG Smart TV, click on Settings and navigate down to option.

  • Here's caption, click and use the left or right arrows to toggle the setting to on.

  • Below this you'll see different modes CC1 the default is generally the closed captioning in the primary language.

  • There might be additional choices available such as other languages that varied depending upon the programming or broadcaster.

  • So try this for yourself to see what else might be available.

  • It's good to know that Smart TV content providers like Netflix, Hulu Plus, and Vudu have also updated their apps to make closed captioning readily accessible to an ever-growing audience.
