Google Play – subtitles/captions on films

I queried Google Play about making their films database searchable for captions/subtitles. This is their response.

Thank you very much for contacting me this evening. Currently, closed captioning is available on a portion of our content.

Accessibility of our products is extremely important at Google, so we’re working hard to expand our closed captioning offerings, and make it easier to search for them on Google Play. If you have any further questions, I’d be happy to help.

  1. I have just rented The Bourne Legacy form Google Play only to find that subtitles/closed captions are unavailable. I would have thought these would automatically have been added to such a recent movie. A I am Deaf from birth I have now wasted £3.49 on a movie I cannot follow! Back to the ‘bad old days’ eh,pre subtitles!
