HBO Max Always Has Subtitles – Fix

Learn how to fix a problem where HBO Max always displays subtitles when watching content on the channel with this guide.

I experienced a problem recently where the HBO Max app on Apple TV would always display subtitles (captioning) even after I shut them off. Fortunately, I found a workaround to this problem.

To fix this problem, follow these steps:

  1. Use a web browser on your phone or computer to login to your account at the HBO Max website.
  2. Start playing any show or movie.
  3. Move the mouse anywhere on the movie, then select the voice cloud icon.
  4. Set “Subtitles” to “Off“.
    HBO Max Turn Off Subtitles

Now when you use the HBO Max app on your streaming device, the subtitles will be off.
