    Hi maggiemame,

    Unfortunately not at the moment. Its actually technically very difficult to add subtitles to live streams. Its definitely a long term aim but not something we can easily or cheaply add. One day though!

    Hi All,

    Just wondering if there are any devlopments on adding subtitles? It's very important for Deaf people to access the service via subtitles but it is equally important for those who can hear as they may want to watch without wearing ear phones or watch in a noisy environment.

    I'd be interested if anyone can shed any light?

    Many thanks

    Neil

    Neil, their is no active progress being made on Subtitles. It is something we would love to acommodate for and periodicly look at doing so. Its technically very difficult to add subtitles to live streams. Its definitely a long term aim.

    Could you not set up a channel (eg. basic five) that has the subtitles permanently on showing on a separate stream from the standard one? You could also do an AD version like that as well.

    Maybe without the regions because you's already seem to be upto your eyeballs in server costs but its a suggestion anyway.

    That would mean almost doubling the servers just for subtitles which doesn't warrant the cost of doing this. I very much doubt we will have subtitles as this is easy to do at the development end, but seeing as we do not make the broadcast then this is a very difficult then to do.
    Tell us why you use TVCatchup and how? http://alturl.com/f88tv
