Happy Friday Cord Cutters!

As always, if you know of someone who might need some insight or help with cutting the cord on cable or satellite, please forward our newsletter, or use the handy share buttons at the top of this email.
OK... now let's get to it!
Q&A > Can I Change How Closed Captions Appear?
This week's question comes from John who asks, "I find the closed captioning when streaming too small to read. Is there a way to fix it?"
Even if you don't have hearing loss or auditory processing issues, you might still enjoy closed captioning when you're watching TV. However, the default closed captioning settings might be too difficult to read from the couch.
Thankfully most streaming platforms have system-level settings (usually found under ACCESSABILITY) which will allow you to adjust not only when closed captions appear, but the size, background color, and in some cases even the font. Of all platforms, Roku seems to have the most robust set of closed captioning customization options.
Get instructions for adjusting closed captioning for Roku, Amazon Fire TV, Chromecast with Google TV, and Apple TV.
