How to Disable or Turn Off Subtitles on Fire Stick


The Amazon Fire TV Stick is a portable media streaming device that can be connected into virtually any television. You will be able to watch a wide number of channels, movies, and television shows once you have inserted it into the HDMI port of a television. In addition, as long as you have an active subscription to the services, you will be able to watch Netflix, YouTube, Hulu, Amazon Prime Video, HBO, and other streaming services on any TV you choose.

With the help of the Fire TV Stick, you may decide, amongst other things, whether or not you want subtitles on your television. Subtitles function in a manner that is analogous to that of closed captioning (CC) in that they present the dialogue that is being uttered by the characters, narrators, or persons depicted on the screen. However, subtitles are woven into the fabric of the programme that is being broadcast and their primary purpose is to assist viewers who may be watching a programme but require the dialogue to be heard in a different language. This post will walk you through the steps necessary to disable the subtitles on your Fire Stick. So let’s get started:

The purpose of closed captioning, on the other hand, is primarily to act as a guide for people who are hearing challenged. It is possible for it to contain not only the dialogue but also the sound effects that are now being heard. Additionally, because CC is frequently a transcription in real time of what is being stated, it may contain misspellings at times.

On the other hand, if you would prefer to watch television programmes without the subtitles or if you believe that they are annoying, you can easily disable the subtitles on your Fire Stick if you so want. The following is the procedure:

1. Start playing the video that you wish to see.

2. The “Menu” button is located on the left side of your Fire TV remote control and can be accessed by pressing the button that has three horizontal lines on it.

What’s the difference in Fire Stick Lite and Fire Stick?

Stick Lite version of the Amazon Fire TV

Full HD content may be played on it, just as the standard Fire TV Stick, although the Dolby Atmos sound format is not supported. The most important distinction is the less capable remote control, which is known as the Alexa Voice Remote Lite. Because it does not have controls to adjust the level or mute the sound, you are unable to use it to control the sound coming from your TV and/or soundbar.
