Subtitles On YouView?

Brian Cox had the following question about YouView:

“I’m interested in the new YouView box. I see it has subtitles for hard of hearing people,like me,but does it record them?”


Recording subtitles

Brian’s correct that YouView supports subtitles. We’ve tested this on the Humax DTR-T1000 YouView box, and confirm that subtitles are indeed supported. The Humax YouView box also supports AD (Audio description), and on some on-demand content, sign language is also supported on this box according to the manual.

As for recording subtitles, that’s a “yes”. We don’t have subtitles on by default, but checked an existing recording we’d made a few days back, pressed the DEL/SUB button, and subtitles appeared on the recorded programme.
