    Default Apple TV subtitles questions
    I am considering buying Apple TV because I would like to jailbreak it to receive free tv shows from local networks (I'm in the US, by the way) and I watch them in closed captions. I use netflix often and know the cc's are available directly from their website. I also rip movies from my dvd collection and embed cc's onto them for display on my iPad. My question is, is Apple TV able to display cc/subtitles (even though it has a feature that enables them, but I'm hearing otherwise) if I view network shows and the like? This is the biggest factor in my purchase, otherwise it's totally useless to me.

    Thanks in advance!

    Does this require jailbreaking, or can you use it with the "normal" one. If so, how?

    To use subtitles is not require jailbreaking. For more Apple TV tips and tutorials, could turn to ifunia Apple TV column and wiki.awkwardtv.org, Apple TV jailbreak and hacks: appletvhacks.net is a nice spot.
