    I followed everything to customize my cc, etc. but I still have a problem. I’ve been watching this one program for 3-1/2 seasons. With closed captioning. One day I clicked on the cc icon on the upper rh corner and it changed to lines instead of cc. What happen? I now no longer have cc for this program…even the ones I watched before with cc. When I click on the icon, it show subtitles, off…whivh has a check mark…, english (cc) , audio and default..which is also checked.
    When I click on English (cc) and go back to my program, it still doesn’t have cc. Went back to the cc icon and it’s back at off again. How do I leave it on? Thus is very frustrating because I’m very hard of hearing and cc is the only way I can understand what they’re trying to say. HELP!!!!

      Hello Elaine,

      I can understand your concern. If you don’t see the closed captions for a video, there might be a chance that the video doesn’t have it or CC might have been removed by the publisher. However, if you don’t think that’s the case, please try to reinstall and login the Amazon Prime again.

    Hi I’m watching Jack Ryan and it’s mostly in English but when the other culture is talking the caption is in their language. It’s har to watch when I can’t understand what they are saying. Is there a way to change their language to English?

      Thank you for your comment. I am sorry for the inconvenience but the subtitles for the foreign language is not available on Amazon that’s you can’t see the CC for the same.

    Phyllis, if you are watching prime on a smart TV app, you will have to change the closed captioning in the settings on your TV. Look online for the instructions how to do this for your particular make of TV.

    I think this is big failure for amazonvideos.. First of all, it’s not user friendly to go to web site to makr change. Furhermore, eve if you do that, it doesnt work. You cannot change default preset into your edits. It’s a disaster !!
