How to Change the Size and Colour of Netflix Subtitles

An increasing number of Netflix users are watching original, foreign language, series and movies with subtitles. If you are part of this group, you should know that Netflix allows you to customise subtitle appearance and design to best suit your preferences.

How to Customise Netflix Subtitles

As you know, almost all of Netflix’s content has multiple languages and subtitles available, allowing users to experience different series and movies outside of their native language. As far as languages are concerned, we already have already shown you how to change the language on Netflix here, but few people realise that subtitles can be modified as well. It is possible to change the size, colour and typography of, among other aspects.

To personalise the subtitles, you will have to connect to the web version of Netflix. You can search in your account settings, or even easier, just click on this link which will take you to the subtitle preferences page.

Then this screen will appear.

As you can see, the options are very varied. For a start, you can choose between seven types of fonts (Typewriter, Print, Block, Console, Casual, Cursive and Small Caps). You can also put the text in a box, put a background on it, add shadows and relief in different colors, or change the font size. Whatever your personal preference, you should be able to enjoy your favourite programs in the most comfortable way possible.

Any personalisation that you do will only be applied to the profile you have open. So if you share an account with other people, you will each be able to personalise your subtitle preferences. The changes will be applied to all viewing devices.

We hope that it has been helpful and if you want to know more tips and tricks to get the most out of Netflix, you can click here.
