How to enable closed captioning


DIRECTV makes it easy to read closed captioning. Here’s how it works:

  • Press INFO on your DIRECTV remote
  • On the screen, scroll right and select CC
  • Use the arrow button to highlight it, then press SELECT

To set closed captioning options such as font color, panel/background color, font size, etc. press MENU and navigate to Settings.  Scroll right to Accessibility and press SELECT.  Captioning settings are on the right side of the screen. Use the DOWN arrow to scroll to the setting you want to change, and press SELECT.  Press SELECT on the setting you want to use.  You can press EXIT on your remote to return to your programming.
