Remove subtitles

Is there anyway to remove the subtitles from the Cinema app?

Are you talking about movie subtitles that are in a different language? If so, it’s just something you’re going to have deal with. This typically happens if you’re watching a movie that is a fairly new release in the States (from days to a couple of weeks), or, that hasn’t been released in the States yet. These movies, instead of overdubbing the dialogue, provide subtitles for their non-English speaking audience.

If it is a movie that’s been around for awhile, just try a different stream.

Thanks for the info. Just wanted to be sure.


  1. Go to the menu at the top left with the three lines.
  2. Move down and select Settings.
  3. move down to the third choice from the top under General called "Choose Default Play Action " and select it.
  4. Select “Always ask” or " Play".
    This should only show the video without Subtitles unless they are embedded in the stream. In that case, you cannot remove them.
    You can however in Settings, then go down to Subtitle Colour and change it to Black. Might be less intrusive. Good luck!
