I have a Panasonic DMp-BD Blu Ray Player & a Panasonic VIERA TC-P60S30. I just bought the tv last week. Both of these do Netflix streaming but neither do subtitles or 5.1. I'm very unhappy that to get those I would have to buy another machine. I tried contacting Panasonic and they don't know if my machines should do it or will ever. I wondered if anyone hear knows if these things will be updated in the future to do subtitles, 5.1? I can wait but I don't want to purchase a new machine if these will update in the future. TY, Linda

I should point out that I was talking to first tier support at Panasonic and the lady just kept asking me if I had 5 speakers, you know you need 5 speakers to get 5.1...lots of help...

It IS frustrating but that's the deal right now. Very fractured and it's all Netflix's fault for confusing their consumers and afaik they have not made any announcements on bringing parity accross devices or to yours in particular.

You could be waiting a very long time before your particular machine is updated. From the 2011 line the Panasonic BDT-110 , 210 , 310 all do DD Plus 5.1 streaming, and subtitles. From the 2012 line the BDT-220 , 320 , 500 will do the same If you just purchased your player recently I suggest you returning it and getting the 220. It is available from Amazon at a reasonable price.

I have a Sony 780 and this doesn't have it either. I thought the ps3 was the only one that does all of it.

I upgraded my Blu-ray player for the same reasons. I will have my new Pan. 220 in a couple days. I don't like subtitles, but my wife does due to some hearing loss. UPDATE !! I've had my new Pan. BDT220 for a week now and it's very nice. I upgraded from the BD65 mainly for the subtitles, Netflix in 1080p, and 5.1 Surround. They all work great. It also has the new Netflix interface where you can search on it. Very nice player.

Yes, The 2012 models(220 320 500) will do 1080P from Netflix where as 2011 ones only do 720P. Also the 5.1 audio from NF is streamed in Dolby Digital Plus at 384 Kbps and if you have an AVR that can decode DD+, the resulting sound is pretty darn good. :tu:

Is it possible to have a Blu-Ray player ALWAYS display subtitle/CC text without having to go through the indiviual setup menus on every DVD? If so, what manufacturers support it?

None that I've heard of.
