Therefore closed captions (CC) and subtitles which are like open captions are not the same.
However in your other comment you said no English subtitles/SDH on those rental movies, no shit? I suspect those rental movies are REPRODUCED without subtitles by Universal Studio for rental purpose only. I suggest you to try another rental movie store or Redbox to see if those same movies have subtitles or not. If they do, obviously those movies you already rented from the first place are reproduced ones.
I believe that Netflix also buy reproduced movies without subtitles which are cheaper to own copyrights because I remember that this company said that they are adding subtitles through its own captioning system. That's why Netflix doesn't offer new releases with subtitles, I guess.
Amazon.com shows that those movies for purchase have English subtitles or SDH or both. Hopefully someone else who already rented any of those BD movies will let us know.
Yes I'm aware of that. I'm specifically talking about SDH, I rent it from Blockbuster, but what I'm saying that most of the Universal Studios, even all of what I rented above have no SDH.
As for Banjo, yes, I scrolled everywhere and not one single info that show SDH.
So, I'm going to write a complant to both Studio and FCC and ADA.
