Subtitle it! Whatever we watch, however we watch it

jamie pictureThe way we watch TV has transformed over recent years – and it’s hard to remember a time before we streamed films or watched catch-up TV.

But far too many people with hearing loss are missing out, because subtitles are absent from thousands of hours of ‘on demand’ content.

Over the last year, more than 5,000 of you have taken action for Subtitle it! and together we've sent a clear message to broadcasters, MPs and the Government that the digital exclusion of people with hearing loss must stop. 

Through Progress on Pause, our supporters demonstrated the scale and impact of the problem, and with your help, the Subtitle it! campaign is starting to make a difference.
Major providers including Sky and BT TV have committed to improving subtitles on catch up and on-demand TV.

Victory in sight?

Eighteen months since the launch of Subtitle it! we're getting close to securing legislation that could enable people with hearing loss to watch TV with subtitles, regardless of when or how they watch it.

Please sign our Christmas card to Digital Minister, Matt Hancock, urging him to sign, seal and deliver on his promise of subtitles for the millions who rely on them.
