Disney Plus is one of the newest headline streaming services on the block. But the platform wasted no time in becoming one of the most popular choices for blockbuster movies and shows, featuring the entire Marvel and Star Wars franchises. There’s also a wealth of beloved animated content for kids, so it’s hardly surprising that millions of users have flocked to the platform.

Like captions for all the leading streaming services, subtitles on Display Plus are a helpful translation tool for people who struggle with hearing problems or have difficulty understanding foreign accents. However, native English speakers that tend to stay away from international shows and movies probably don’t see the need to enable captions often.

Naturally, turning off subtitles on Disney Plus is the easiest solution. Yet figuring out how to disable subtitles can get confusing considering the wide variety of streaming services and devices available.
