That's interesting because TV's with android have this funcionality however it is only available for android. This is why I ask, because I want to know what you have developed for this purpose. Netflix supports only 6 languages. It's not serious to ask Netflix since there are around 40 languages world wide and they cant have subtitles for all of them. However in the internet you can find subtitle for every language. And since Android has a solution I just want to know whether you have as well. Because Android supports many applications, much more than any other operating system, but for some reason you dont want to use android in your TV.

@Petar FYI:

1) LG TV's use WebOS, NOT Android, that is why the name of this peer-to-peer forum is LGWebOS).

2) This forum may have the name LG in it, but it is used just to identify the subject matter for enthusiasts to help other users. It has NO affiliation with LG at all, and they do NOT participate in any support issues, or comments made here.

Your last post seemed to be assuming that this site IS part of LG, and that "we" could help in some way. Sorry that is not the case, but some users on here may be able to suggest workarounds for issues, and provide technical expertise, but that is the limit of what we can do.

By the way, are you saying that you had an Android TV, and it DOES provide external speech driven Close Captions to the Neflix Player, provided "on-the-fly" via an internet connection?

It does not provide subtitles on the fly. The web app Substital finds subtitles from a database for the specific movie and plays them. If I could download the subtitles myself and insert them via USB in the TV for example this could also be a solution.

      I just bought a lg b7 oled and have a problem. I dont subscribe to cable so I wont ever be using it on this tv. Every time I start the tv it loads the OS and the cable-less static comes on the screen and BLASTS through the speakers. The tiles for netflix, hulu, etc are at the bottom so I choose one of those. How do I stop the tv from defaulting to turning on the "tv" that clearly doesnt exist? Ive tried deleting the tile for live tv, and even moving it to the far right side but still every time I turn n the tv - static with the menu on the bottom.

      I'm watching a movie (mkv) that has 10 built-in link hidden, please login to view, but webOs only shows 8 options and the one I want to select is the ninth option. My TV is LG 55 OLED B6. Is there a way to make this selection?

      Hi. 
      My 55 UH7707 received an SW update to version  05.50.06.  Here are the issues I have encountered:
      1. The whole user interface became really slow. 
      2. Also, what is most annoying, application updates are not installed, for example, NETFLIX has been impossible to update, being stuck in vicious circle,asking me to update the app, and then not being able to complete the installation of the update. 
      3. Wired connection was disabled, ethernet module was not detecting a cable. I had to do a hard reset to enable the ethernet, and reacquire wired connection to the internet

      Hello friends,
      I have setup a home network in Windows 10, I think it uses DLNA. I can play all the files from the computer or the USB stick in the router with no issue but the external subtitles (correctly named) are not working in my 65C9, only internal ones. 
      If I access the same files in the network from a computer, there is no problem and subtitles are shown, it's only the TV not displaying them.
      Can someone help in how to make external subs work when played from a local network or what to check?
       
      Thanks
