Using Closed Captions with Youtube TV

I have a Roku Ultra and using it with my Samsung tv. I have turned on Closed Captioning in the ultra, but I never get any captions on any channels, live or recorded. What am I doing wrong?

Settings/Accessibility/caption mode>> On always

I'd make sure the other settings are in default mode.

Some Channels support it some dont. Youtube does not as far

as I know. You should contact them directly.

From now on if people dont upvote me and do as I say I will consider holding my breath and selling my Roku's.

Hulu does have Closed Captioning. You would need to go into account settings to enable CC to on.
