No because it will mirror what your box is doing

Re: Subtitles Virgin Anywhere

Not if you're not at home it won't be. You can't stream from a V6 box outside of Home, so it's either downloaded shows on iOS or Live TV on Android.

If this on the iPad or iPhone for a show that's been downloaded from the V6 then there is a subtitle option in the play controls at the bottom of the screen.

On Android devices when streaming live TV the subtitle option is in the top of the screen when it tells you the title of the show. It looks like an empty speech bubble.

Re: Subtitles Virgin Anywhere

I have the very same issue on my android phone.  Subtitles are turn off on the virgin box but every time I try the app the video has subtitles on, making it unwatchable.  Mind you, at least it works on my phone, my iPad it does work at all even though I registered twice.  I am not very impresses with the quality of the apps.  They seem very very temperamental to the point I would say they are unusable as a service.

Re: Subtitles Virgin Anywhere

Hi steven_davies, 

 

Thanks for coming to us here via the forums and apologies for the issues you are having playing TV Anywhere. If we look at the subtitle options first of all, when you're getting these on your Android phone are you able to switch them off using BenMcr's instructions above? 

 

'On Android devices when streaming live TV the subtitle option is in the top of the screen when it tells you the title of the show. It looks like an empty speech bubble.'

 

With regards to the iPad, I have gone in to the account and added a device change. Using a PC/Laptop go to anywhere.virginmedia.com > My Profile > Device Settings. Remove the current registration by clicking on the Delete button. Once you've done this, using the device you are trying to re-register, open up TV Anywhere and log in. Try to stream Channel 4 and this should then prompt you to register the device.

 

Come back and let me know to see how it goes. 

 

Thanks,
