  2. Make sure you see the CC icon near the top right or bottom of your screen, by the video's maturity rating (e.g. PG-13, TV-G, etc.). If the video doesn't have this "CC" icon, it doesn't have Closed Captions available on Tubi. 
  3. Use your remote to navigate to this icon and toggle it on or off.  When the toggle is orange (as presented in the image above), captions should be enabled.
