How do I turn closed captions on or off?

The majority of videos on HBO can be watched with closed captions. When closed captions are on, audio is displayed as text on the screen (speech and sounds are transcribed into text).

The Closed Captions button appears as a speech bubble or CC in the HBO app.

Note   Subtitles are a translation of a video's dialogue and can't be turned off. For more information, see How to find shows and movies available in Spanish.


The HBO app on TiVo uses the closed caption settings from your TiVo device. To find out how to turn closed captions on/off or change the styling on your TiVo, go to TiVo Support: Closed Captioning.
