Closed Captions Troubleshooting on Chromecast

If you are watching a full episode on The CW or CW Seed using Chromecast, and the closed captions are jumbled, not in-sync with the visual/audio, or do not show up at all, turn off the closed captions setting and then turn it back on. Allow a few seconds for the closed captions to sync up. [How do I turn on/off closed captions?]

If the issue persists, 

  1. Go to the menu on The CW or CW Seed app.
  2. Select the show you were watching.
  3. Select the episode you were watching.
  4. Resume the episode or start over the episode with closed captions enabled.  
  5. Please allow a few seconds for the closed captions to sync up.

If the steps above do not resolve the issue, please submit feedback using the form below and make sure to provide the following information:

  • Device & model used with Chromecast (e.g. iPhone + Chromecast, Android + Chromecast)
  • Series and episode title/number during which the closed captions are not functioning properly
