Roku streaming stick Model 3810X running software 9.4.0 build 4200-50. Since the last software update in December, I've noticed that CC has been randomly turned on in some of the channels. They include CBS News, NBC News, and some others that I can't recall now. It happens randomly with live streaming and replay. It happens repeatedly and on replay, it turns back on in each segment.
My default setting which I've checked in settings is always off for CC. Of course, you can press the * button to turn them off when they show up but it's a persistent and annoying problem.
I've reported it to Roku support and CBS although the fact that it happens on more than one channel makes me think it is not a channel problem as much as a software problem.
I did see a few new posts referencing this for CBS News. Just wondering how many are experiencing this?
it always turns on.. and i'm about to go to AMAZON FIRE STICK .. SEEMS TO NNOW BE A BETTER PRODUCTno problems with that product. roku.. you're going to loose a lot of people to amazon.. and a lot because you refuse to give a clean simple customer support..
I guess there aren't many out there experiencing this problem. I am seeing it on other channels as well including Peacock and NewsOn as well as others. It would seem the problem has to be with the Roku latest software update since it wasn't happening before.
Please be aware that some channel manages its own content programming, including closed captions on contents. Reach out to the channel If changing the captions on the Roku settings does not resolve the issue.
