How to Turn on Closed Caption in Netflix on the Wii

Netflix is always working to make its content more accessible to all users, including those who require closed-captioning. Although there is no way to turn on captions for all movies and shows by default on the Nintendo Wii, you can turn them on for a particular title before you begin watching by activating captions in your language of choice from the “Audio and subtitles” menu. This takes a mere minute of your time and will allow you to fully enjoy the movies and TV shows streamed from Netflix.
