Hi Your remarks should be directed to Amazon, as virgin is the just platform they have no control if they supply sub titles or not.Regards Micky

Re: No subtitles on Amazon Prime

Have you turned them on in the app itself? They seem to be working fine for me.

Re: No subtitles on Amazon Prime

The subtitles work fine on firestick..it's just when I try to watch it through VM...no subtitles...this is also true for any catch up I watch from VM.

Re: No subtitles on Amazon Prime

Just to check, have you turned them on in the app on the V6 box or just via your Amazon account?

Have you also rebooted the V6?

Re: No subtitles on Amazon Prime

Same problem with new mini box .  Oddly only with the free Prime films.  If I have rented foreign language film then subtitles come on automatically.

After searching various forums I managed to find a solution

Don't open Prime app via the box . I used tv remote and opened Prime app on tv ( a Samsung). You then have to start film and pause it. Click select/enter on the remote and some icons should appear . Click on speech bubble and 'subtitles on/off appears . Click on . Resume film.
