FAQs

Why are the subtitles not working on Amazon Prime Video?

Prime Video subscribers say that the subtitles don’t work as expected. They are sometimes out of sync with the audio or don’t show up. The Prime Video app is a little finicky, so your best option is to close the app and restart it or uninstall and install it again.

Why can’t I find my language?

Keep in mind that not every TV show or movie supports multi-language subtitles and audio. You will find closed-captioned English subtitles for every English-language show and multiple audio and subtitle options for Amazon Prime originals.
