How to select a CC mode on LG TV
LG TVs have several subtitle modes that allow you to change the subtitle language and format. These options are located in the closed caption menu of LG TV directly under the closed caption mode on/off setting.
CC1 is the first option for subtitles on your LG TV. This option will display subtitles in the main language of the program you are watching. This is the TV’s default setting when you turn on subtitles.
Other options include CC2, CC3, and CC4, as well as Text 1, Text 2, Text 3, and Text 4. If CC1 subtitles aren’t in your preferred language, these other options may be a better choice for you. The languages available depend on the program or broadcast network. Unfortunately, not all programs provide multiple subtitle options.
If you select one of these additional modes and nothing changes or no subtitles appear, it is because the broadcast network doesn’t provide this subtitle mode.
