Live TV or Videos are missing captions/subtitles

Captions/subtitles are available for most of the channels and videos in the BossTV Live Channels and streaming library. If you're watching a particular video and notice that they appear to be unavailable: 

  1. Make sure that you've correctly enabled them in the BOSSTV app  
  2. Check your device's accessibility settings (if applicable)
  3. Test other videos for comparison purposes. If other Channels or videos are affected, run through these troubleshooting steps for common playback issues.

If no other videos are affected, or if the issue is not resolved by troubleshooting, contact us so we can investigate. If it turns out that we don't have the captions/subtitles you're looking for, you can submit a request by emailing the details (movie, show, season, episode, etc.) to captions-feedback@bosstv.com
