Re: Closed captions will not stay turned "OFF"


The Roku default method of accessing your choice of CC options is to press the * key on your Roku remote while viewing the program and examining the options presented.  

But more and more channels are not using the Roku default but instead substituting their own method of access -- I'm guessing this is so they will have consistent controls with versions of their app running on platforms other than Roku.  Often these options are accessed by pressing the up and/or down cursor control keys while viewing the program to pop the channel's own control options on the screen.
