Setting Up Subtitles on Paramount Plus

Enabling Subtitles on Different Devices

Turning on subtitles across devices is quite similar. On smart TVs, mobile phones, or tablets, users can start by opening the Paramount Plus app and selecting the show or movie they want to watch. During playback, one should look for a speech bubble icon, which is commonly found in the top right corner of the screen. Clicking or tapping this icon presents a list of available subtitle languages. Users can select their preferred language to enable subtitles on their current stream.

For those watching Paramount Plus on a web browser, the process is just as simple. After logging into the Paramount Plus website and choosing a video to watch, the speech bubble icon will again be your friend. It’s typically located in the same top right area of the video player. A single click will reveal the “Subtitles” section where viewers can choose the desired subtitle language.

Customizing Subtitle Appearance

Not everyone likes the default appearance of subtitles, and that’s why customization is such a helpful feature.

Paramount Plus offers several customization options:

  • Font style: Change the look of your text to something that suits your taste or is easier for you to read.
  • Font size: Make the text bigger or smaller depending on what’s most comfortable for your eyes.
  • Color: Adjust the color of the text to stand out more against the video background.
  • Background: Modify the background of the subtitles for better readability.

Customization might vary depending on the device used, but generally, these adjustments can be made within the same subtitles or speech bubble menu where one initially turns on the subtitles. Users should explore the ‘Subtitles + Audio’ menu or similar options within the app or webpage to toggle these preferences to fit their needs.

Troubleshooting Subtitle Issues

When you’re all set for movie night but subtitles on Paramount Plus aren’t playing ball, it’s time to fix the issue quickly and keep the entertainment rolling. We’ll look at how to sync subtitles with the video and what to do when subtitles aren’t available in your language.

Syncing Subtitles with Video

Sometimes, subtitles might run ahead of or lag behind the scene you’re watching. This isn’t ideal, but it’s usually fixable. First, pause and then play the video or restart the app and streaming device. Occasionally, it’s just a temporary glitch. If that doesn’t help, check for updates for your streaming platform—keeping everything current ensures smoother playback.

For persistent sync issues, you might need to adjust the subtitles manually. Some devices allow this through their settings, so dig into the video player options to find if you can tweak the timing. If you’re out of luck here, it may be a bug with the specific movie or TV show you’re trying to watch. In that case, reaching out to Paramount Plus support can alert them to the problem.

Solving Subtitle Availability Problems

Not finding subtitles in the language you need is frustrating. First, check the subtitles menu. Click or tap the speech bubble icon in the top right of the video player to see the list of available languages. If your preferred language isn’t there, it may not be supported for that particular piece of content. Streaming platforms like Paramount Plus often offer subtitles in numerous languages, but not every language is available for all movies and TV shows.

When subtitles are present but not displaying, ensure captions are enabled in both the Paramount Plus app’s accessibility menu and your device’s caption settings. Lastly, remember to select the correct language. If you’re still hitting a wall, customer support can step in to assist or clarify the extent of subtitle coverage for the content you’re interested in.
