How to make subtitles bigger in netflix

Last year, my son bought me a Netflix subscription for Christmas. I have a problem hearing and so rely on subtitles. While Netflix provides subtitles for its content, I find them too small to see clearly. Luckily, it’s easy to make them bigger.

Log into your Netflix account (, click your account dropdown menu at the top right, then click Your Account. In the My Account section, click the ‘Subtitle appearance’ link (in the My Profile section). You’ll see options to change the font type and size using dropdown menus. Clicking Save will apply these changes to all the devices you watch Netflix on – such as your PC, TV (via Chromecast), tablet and so on.

  2. Thank you. This did in fact work. Changing the size on the Roku itself did not seem to work. I did notice that I had to turn off the TV (a Roku TV) first, and restart for the subtitle change to take effect. I also noticed that many of the settings came out AWFUL. For example selecting the white text only – it is more like light grey and totally unreadable. The extra large text literally took up 50% of the screen. The middle size, with black background and white text was the only viable option. Also, when you are editing them in your Roku profile (using a computer), be sure you are on the correct Profile. Seems like each Profile can have a different settings.
