Yes TV by Fetch: Closed Captions

What are Closed Captions?

Closed captioning (often referred to as CC) provides an on-screen transcript of dialogue and narration in a TV program.

Switching on Closed Captions

On your Yes TV by Fetch remote, simply press the 'text' button, and Closed Captions will be displayed if they are available.

'My Channels'

You can set up your 'My Channels' list to include only channels with Closed Captions.

Setting up your 'My Channels' list

  1. To add a channel to your list, select the channel then press the green button on your remote. You can remove the channel from your list by pressing the green button again.
  2. Switch to your 'My Channels list' by pressing the yellow button on your remote. This will display only the channels you've added to your list. You can switch back to the full channel list again by pressing the yellow button again.

How do I know which programs have Closed Captions?

The Electronic Program Guide (or EPG) will display the 'CC' symbol for all programs that have Closed Captions available.

Checking for Closed Captions on a specific program

If you're watching a program, press the 'Info' button on your remote twice. If Closed Captions are available, you'll see the 'CC' symbol.

To check whether any program has Closed Captions available, simply highlight the program in the EPG and press 'Info' on your remote. If Closed Captions are available, the 'CC' symbol will be displayed.

If you're viewing the List View of the EPG, you'll see the 'CC' symbol beneath the program description instead.
