Google Play Movies--No Closed captions

When playing a Movie from Google Play Movies on my TCL Smart Tv, I do not receive closed captions.

I have the settings on my Roku TV to always show closed captions, but they do not appear on this channel.

Any ideas?

Re: Google Play Movies--No Closed captions

Some channels are not coded by their owners to observe Roku's standard settings.  I don't know why, I assume it's to keep a similar user interface for their service on all devices.

I don't use Google Play movies so I'm not familiar with their interface.  While viewing a movie try the up and down arrow keys to see if they reveal Google's control options.
