No Captions for English TV or Movies! I enjoyed the 7-day trial so much I decided to keep the subscription. However, I'm dismayed to find out that the shows and movies in English do not have subtitles. The same movies and shows are on other streaming services with captions, so it can be done. Topic--Please add captions to your English content too!

Hi M.A. - almost all our English series & films have captions that you can turn on or off. Could you let us know where you are seeing missing captions? Please let us know at Thanks Topic

Some great international series and movies to choose from. But the android tv app is not great. Series watching does not remember where you left off. So unless you have a great memory, or write it down, good luck on remembering what episode/spot you left off at. Also, no recap skip option. Subtitles on some series could use help. Arctic Circle is unwatchable due to the abysmal subtitles, with closed caption (dog barking, musical note, doorbell ringing) descriptors sprinkled in. Forbrydelsen subtitles have a BLACK background. All make for a semi-dissatisfying, and distracting experience. Fix the above issues and Topic could become a close to 5 star experience.

Hi - thanks for your feedback. Our Android TV app does offer Continue Watching - please check in your settings that it's enabled. We definitely would love to add skip recaps. For captions / subtitles, subtitles are on by default, however captions can be turned on / off for most titles to avoid being displayed (including Arctic Circle). Thanks!

Must see tv from around the world, excellent streaming service, app could use some work like the ability to download for offline play and a watchlist similar to netflix would be great, I am about to purchase a year sub, I hope you have plans to keep adding new content! Yeah I have the favorites I was referring to like a list you could scroll thru of the shows/movies you have added to favorites on the main home screen, anyways, I love the content! Keep it up!

Hi - thanks for your feedback! We have a watch list, it's called Favorites, you can use the Heart icon. Let us know if for some reason you don't see it and we will be adding Download / Offline later on this year. We're adding new series every few weeks and a new film at least once a week. Thanks!
