Re: Roku channel language for movied and series


You can change the preferred language for audio under Settings..Audio..Audio Preferred Language and the Subtitles/Closed Captioning under Settings..Accessibility..Captions Preferred Language

Caveat here is that these will only apply when "available".  If a movie or series has an alternate audio or subtitle/closed-captioned option/source/track available (in this case Spanish), then Spanish will be selected.  However, not all programming will have an alternate source available so will receive the default tracks of the content (presumably English).

There is plenty of Spanish content available on the Roku and Channels/apps available for install, but there is not a feature that automatically makes all content convert to another language either in audio or subtitles.  The content has to include the alternative track for it to be available.  Not all content contains these alternate tracks.
