Netflix to add subtitles to streaming videos next year

Netflix has announced that it will finally add subtitles to its video streaming library, however, not until next year. CEO Reed Hastings says the lack of subtitles has been one of the biggest complaints about the service's "Watch Instantly" streaming library. Netflix will finish creating the text files that will "give customers the option of enacting captions on digital titles on devices using Microsoft’s Silverlight components sometime in 2010, adds Netflix chief product officer Neil Hunt.

“Captioning is in our development plans but is about a year away,” Hunt finished.
