Would it be possible to include an option in user settings to turn subtitles off? I know you can turn them off manually every time that you watch a video, but that can get tedious pretty quickly. I'm currently learning Japanese through immersion and it would really boost crunchyroll's usefulness as a learning tool if I was able to watch without subtitles by default.

We are working to add more language options so we are going to provide a way for people to choose their default audio and subtitle language. This will include the ability to disable subtitles and watch with Japanese audio only but we currently do not provide an option to do this.

Is it possible to turn off subtitles on the iPhone app? I am concerned that since those are all hard subbed, there won't be a way to disable subtitles...

I very much want this option! Right-clicking and selecting "No subtitles" all of the time is a bit annoying.

Any news on this? Have to manually turn off subtitle each time a video is opened is truly annoying

Me too! I have been asking for this for a long time... I'm quite pleasantly surprised to see I'm not the only person who wants this so perhaps they'll even spend some time on it!

Thanks! I know it seems crazy you work hard on subs and we want to turn them off but it is great for listening practice.
