There are currently only about 100 Netflix titles with captions available, including most episodes of Lost Seasons 1-4. “[N]ow [that Netflix] have released the technology... we will be working to fill in the library over time”, says Hunt.
Yahoo News reported that captions for the Lost pilot were, “big, yellow and bold” and also included some captions describing sounds such as “dog barking" and "woman screaming". For those using Netflix, the button for captions can be found in the bottom right corner of the streaming Netflix Web client, between volume and full-screen controls.
Closed captioning will also become available for Netflix game consoles, Blu-ray and High Definition TV starting next autumn (US).
