Question

Script on top left hand corner of Netflix.

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 thread?

I checked to see if it was yours so you need to share a link.

Old threads autolock and the "answer" can change over time. It most likely worked back then and times change. I need a screen shot to see what script you are seeing.

Then again, Netflix has support. I've used it and they solved my question.

Xbox

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

Re above

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

Thank you!

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

Anyone know how on a Roku?

I have it on my roku, and cant seem to get it to go away...

Restart

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

It worked partially

Doing this got rid of some of the script on top but not all. I still have the video and time left in the episode left

Answer
PlayStation 4 solution

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 ps4 all you need to do is click R3.

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.

Thank you!

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!

Thanks

Perfect I have a Roku TV and this worked!!!
