The Apple TV doesn't support YouTube closed captioning. Most of the YouTube video subtitles are inserted by flash. Unfortunately, ios OS products don't support flash. You try Netflik or huluplus movies. You may want to submit feedback to Apple about this. Apple - Apple TV - Feedback

I hate Apple, and refuse to buy any of their over-rated products, so I'm not sure if this article will help or not, as I have never owned one of their products. https://support.netflix.com/en/node/505

My apple TV does work with Netflix had subtitles

Automatic CC on YouTube videos is USELESS since it's a speech recognition (converting voice to text). It has too many errors so it sucks big time. Why do you want to watch YouTube videos with bad captions? :confused:

You should buy Macbook Air or Pro. Use AirPlay to stream any movies with subtitles (.srt) wirelessly from MacBook computer.

"Computer" is iTune account or iCloud account in your computer use Wi-Fi or wired rounter as sharing picture, video transfer to your Apple TV. That "AirPlay" use for iPhone, iPad and Macbook can mirroring to Apple TV.

Mewtilation, I look all you give link, they are old 5.0 or low version
You didn't read it carefully.

From Mewtilation's first link;
Enabling subtitles on Apple TV devices will require that you have Software Version 5.0 or higher installed on the device.
Do you know what "or higher" means?

But you want free movies/TV shows, no rent or buy, right?

You said;

So forget Netflix which is not free. Did you test free Hulu with CC?
