Missing subtitles on Netflix

Grasshopper

Hi all

I have Shaw BlueCurve TV and like watching Netflix through the Shaw box / integration. Unfortunately I'm having issues with subtitles... about 20%-30% of the lines are just missing. Sometimes they appear for a split second (impossible to read), sometimes there's just nothing until the next sentence. It's really hard to understand what's going on. If I watch the same show on my laptop through the Netflix app, it's fine and all lines are there. But as soon as I watch through BlueCurve, I have the issue again. 

I tried switching my subtitles font size to small. This seems to help (I get about 90% of the lines), but is still not perfect and very hard to read as it's really small. 

Anyone have any idea what the issue is and what else I could try?

Were you watching Unorthodox? I noticed that many of the subtitles were missing or went off before I had a chance to finish reading them.

No, it was Rookie Historian. Unorthodox is on my to-watch list though, so sad to hear I will have the same issue there.

Make sure you watch it on a Netflix app other than the BlueCurve version. Could you let me know how the subtitles are after you watch?

It's fine on the Netflix app. But I have Blue Curve for watching it directly, so I want it to work on that... If the integration doesn't work, what's the point?

Hey @shaw-tony did you see this thread? There is something definitely wrong with the the BlueCurve Netflix app and subtitles.
