Netflix for iOS adds subtitles

Netflix has released an update to its universal iOS app adding subtitle support. Netflix 1.3 allows users to selectively display subtitles when available for listening in loud environments or to display English-language subtitles on foreign language films. Users can determine whether content includes subtitles by looking at the languages indicated in the “Details” section on the left side of the movie page which will list both the primary and additional language soundtracks and which subtitle languages are available. Netflix is available from the App Store as a free download. A Netflix membership is required to use the app.
