How to Turn on Subtitles on HBO Max


Whether you’re watching your favourite HBO Max show with or without subtitles, you can easily toggle the setting on and off whenever you want. The process of turning on subtitles on a mobile app and a computer appears to be nearly identical. Making adjustments to your subtitles preferences, on the other hand, will be dependent on your device.

Changing items like the language, size, colour, and font of your captions on your smartphone will need you to go into the Settings app on your Android or Apple device and navigate to the “Accessibility” tab in the Settings app. iPhone users will find the option under “Subtitles & Captioning,” while Android users will find the option under “Captions Preferences” on their devices’ home screens. HBO Max allows you to control the subtitles directly from the “CC” icon on the desktop version of the website.

If you don’t, your subtitles will be turned off in the same manner as they were turned on. It will be obvious if they are enabled or disabled based on the background colour of the buttons. The “CC” is highlighted against a black background when the setting is disabled, and it is filled in when the setting is enabled; otherwise, the setting is turned off.

Here’s how to toggle the subtitles on and off with your HBO Max subscription.
