There are no subtitles or closed captions of any kind, English or otherwise. I have contacted The History Channel about this glaring oversight. Persons with hearing problems will have difficulty following this.
I also contacted the History Channel, but they seem intent on ignoring this issue. After initially sending in my complaint about the lack of subtitles through their online FAQ system, I got an automated response from A&E Entertainment which said that the email address that the History Channel sent the initial complaint was inactive. The automated response gave me another email address to write to, but my gmail account immediately returned the second email because the second email address was also bogus. I tried calling their 800 number, but because I didn't actually order the title through the A&E store, the person on the other end questioned my right to complain about the product.
So it appears that the History Channel forwards all complaints about individual products to A&E, who will refuse to deal with customers who didn't buy the product through their online store. If anybody has actually gotten through to the History Channel directly, please post the means in which you did so.
Thank you Eric for bringing this to their attention. For years,I've been wanting to buy various products,but can't,as the omission of captions makes it impossible to enjoy it for this very hearing-impaired viewer. Tim Jaqua Bristol,VT
