Interesting statistics, but frankly, I think it's up to CR to decide whether that audience is marginal or not. And while it isn't perfect, the browser option does still work this way.

Obviously if crunchyroll decides is not financially viable than they shouldn't implement it. I'm just trying to state my case is all. And yes the browser has it but I'm not willing to pay the membership free simply to remove ads.

I'm guessing you didn't notice this is posted under the "iOS and Apple TV: section.

I've made a similar mistake before; responding with a browser-only answer for a device.

I'm chiming in to say I want this feature too. I really would like to be able to disable subtitles on the iOS and Xbox 360 apps. I get you guys aren't a language service, but this feature actually used to be on the iOS app back when you use closed captioning which admittedly looked awful. I get that it's a lot of work or a lot of storage, but this is something many of your customers seem to want. The lack of this feature has cost you guys a few customers. I get it's not a big demographic for you guys, but it would be really nice to offer this.

Btw, Netflix offers the ability to turn off subtitles on their soft-subbed anime on Xbox 360 and iOS. I assume this functionality is on their other apps too.

In addition to disabling subs on non-windows devices, I wish we could just get the native language subs. I'm willing to admit I'm in a tiny minority, however.

Native subs probably is t going to ever happen since I don't think the anime comes from Tokyo with it. But disabling the subs downt seem like such a big deal. It would mean I could get rid of my windows tablet which I only use so I can turn off subs on this site.

I would also love to have the ability to disable subs on the Roku Box, as they can be really distracting when trying to focus on the audio. I love how the web interface allows you to choose any available language, or disable the subs entirely. Why is this feature not available within Roku, iOS, etc? Aren't those the platforms most people are watching from these days? It may be wishful thinking, but I hope CR adds this functionality soon!

Most if not all of the devices use hard coded subs, which means for CR to offer a version with no subs, they would need yet another video encode to be create and stored.

While the more recent Roku units support soft subs, the earlier units did not. CR switching to soft subs would eliminate users of older units. Netflix did this, which was one of the reasons I was prompted to upgrade from my Roku XD|S to a Roku 3.

As I recall, one or both of the initial mobile apps (e.g., iOS, Android) used soft subs, but there were issues with it that were resolved by switching to hard subs.
