Question

Script on top left hand corner of Netflix.

Jan 7, 2018 7:18PM PST

How can we get rid of it? Someone asked this before and some dummy closed the thread and it wasn't even answered. They said hit the info button on the remote but that doesn't work. Happy go lucky mod closed the thread before being sure the answer was the right one.
So can someone please help get rid of this eye sore?

What button do you push on Xbox 360 controller to get rid of the text. I’m not very familiar with all the buttons on the controller

By press down in the above post, to clarify, means to click the right joystick, this should also work the same for the Xbox 360

Pressing the right joystick makes it go away on the PS4, too.

Holy f**kin moly, you have NO IDEA how grateful I am for your post!!! You no doubt just saved my sanity!! That STUPID THING has been a real nuisance & has been driving me ABSOLUTELY CRAZY!!!
I knew from years back that it had something to do w/ the controller, but for the life of me just COULD NOT figure it out.

Restart
Apr 28, 2019 8:44PM PDT

I just shut my tv and roku off and then turned back on.. after doing so I realized I should have just exited the actual Netflix app. I tried just going to roku home screen and back to netflix but I wasn’t actually exited out of Netflix. Hope that makes sense

PlayStation 4 solution
Mar 1, 2018 1:06PM PST

I would add that this happened to me while watching Netflix on a Playstion 4. It took me forever to figure out what I had done, but the answer was very simple. I had dropped the remote and inadvertently pressed the little “options” button just to the left of the triangle button. That is what toggles the script you’re seeing (if you’re using a PS4) and that will toggle it back off.

On my tv

On my smart TV what I had to do was go back to the Netflix home page where you browse and hit the option key before selecting my movie, you may have an * instead

Works on Roku too

Going back to the home screen, pressing the * key and then restarting the show or movie was perfect.

It worked on my Roku Ultra. Never, ever would have thought to try that. My NEXT step WOULD have been to throw the ROKU remote through the TV screen!
