Curious about learning a new language but don’t want to spend money? Don’t panic, this article will guide you and show you how to change the language and subtitles on Netflix.

How to change language and subtitles on Netflix

To adjust the audio language or subtitles of your favorite Netflix programs, start by selecting the movie or series you want to watch.

Once playback has started, proceed as follows:

  1. STEP 1:

    Access the playback options menu. This menu is usually accessed by clicking on the dialog or settings icon that appears at the bottom of the screen or in a corner.

  2. STEP 2:

    Select the “Audio and subtitles” option. A drop-down list appears, displaying the different languages available for audio and subtitles.

Please note that not all languages are available for all content. Availability varies according to the distribution agreements specific to each region and the medium used (computer, television, mobile). So be sure to check the options available for the content you’re watching.

By following these simple steps, you can personalize your viewing experience according to your language preferences or subtitling needs.

How to change the language on mobiles, computers and Smart TVs

To adjust the language on different devices, the method varies slightly depending on whether you’re using a cell phone, a computer or a Smart TV.

  • On mobiles and computers: When viewing content, simply touch the screen to bring up the playback options. You’ll see a dialog or parameter icon, usually located at the bottom or in a corner of the screen. Select this icon, then choose “Audio and subtitles” to change the language or activate subtitles.
  • On Smart TV and connected devices: Use the remote control to access the same options. Press the “OK” or “Select” button while on a program to bring up the playback menu. Navigate to the settings icon and select “Audio and subtitles”.
  • On Apple TV: handling is a little different. Start content playback and press the up arrow on your Apple TV remote control. This will open a menu at the top of the screen where you can choose “Audio and subtitles” to make your adjustments.

These steps allow you to personalize your viewing experience according to the language you understand best or your subtitling preferences.
