    I can only assume they dumped the subtitle tracks - both French and English - to make room for the French Surround track that wasn't on the previous releases.
    Not exactly deaf-friendly, though. [​IMG]

    It's dissapointing about the subtitles. There are two people in my life who frequently need subtitles for being, not so much hard of hearing, but who find it hard to listen to dialogue they find unintelligible.

    That's bs. I am hard of hearing, even use hearing aids (and no, I'm not some decrepit old man, I'm 32), and frequently use CC or subs. I do have to say though, that for a studio to write off subs due to the pesence of CC is pretty cheap too... CC sucks, because the black box and cold, industrial text can take you right out of a film... although it's better than nothing.

    I wish the studios would adopt a standard, more or less, and strive to incorporate it on most, if not all, releases.

    Subtitles are also very important to me. As english isn't my native language i use them a lot. Although i consider my english above average, i still struggle with the Sopranos.
    And guessing from the specs for the forthcoming HBO Band of Brothers, i (we) won't get english subtitles, only CC, which for me are useless, because my tv doesn't display them.

    With all the shouting and warfare going on, it's going to be a pain in the XXX to understand what everybody's saying.

    Oh well...

    I hope this isn't a sign of things to come. Six Feet Under is going to be shared with both persons who require subtitles. Anyone know if there is an HBO Home Video email/phone number for comments?

    Thanks. Polite email already sent asking for inclusion of subtitles on future releases.
    Hope they hear what the consumer has to say... [​IMG]
