Have you thought why Netflix made a significant position in all the online streaming services? Let me tell you how. All the small benefits that Netflix is providing consisting no region and language barrier could be the only source of great content throughout the world. From short movies to long tv-series, lesser-known artists to the world-famous ones and dubbing to adding subtitles in every possible language, Netflix serves you all. This article serves the purpose of how you can customise these subtitles showing on your screen for the best viewing experience.

9. If you want to, you can customise the colour of your subtitle box. For optimal viewing experience, you must choose the default transparent view as it won’t cover the screen. But if you want a clearer picture, you can add a background to it.

10. For a whole subtitle window to have a background, you can use the Window colour option for that. In my opinion, this is not necessary.

11. If you want to change a subtitle language, then, “play the content and click on the subtitle icon in the bottom right.” You can also enable or disable subtitles along with the different language options here.

How To Customise Netflix Subtitles For A Better Movie Time Experience.

As of now, you have learnt how to control and manage the way subtitles you prefer. But let me tell you what’s more exciting than this is that the subtitle settings are profile dependent. That means you can create different custom subtitles in different profiles. 

There is only one thing that I find missing is control over the subtitle size. Netflix has not added the feature to change subtitles size based on actual font-size and not just the basic; Small, Medium and Large.

That’s all with this article. If you wish to have any query regarding this article you can comment down below.
