    I love my ROKU – but with ALL the channel options I discovered that ONLY ONE – NETFLIX – offers captions. See- I am deaf and require captions to view stuff. I hope ROKU will jump on board recommending to its channel developers they add captions or subtitles for the deaf & non English speakers. Netflix and CNN had to have a nudge with a class action suit against them- I hope it doesn’t come to that with ROKU.
