Key Information

Subtitles are available for Live TV and On Demand content in the Sky Go app on all platforms, including Android, iPhone, iPad, Windows, Mac and games consoles. They aren't available for recordings or live TV streams in Sky Go from a connected Sky Q box. Subtitles aren't available in the Sky Kids app or on the Sky Store section of the set top box. For more help, read our guide to switching on subtitles.

Please note: Channel 4 content isn't currently supported in the Sky Go app, but is coming at a later date. This means that you may see an "S" in the programme details for a show, but if that show comes from Channel 4, the subtitles will not appear.
