Frederick C Taylor:
Each programme broadcaster determines whether they wish to include a subtitle service. This website has no connection with any broadcaster nor Freeview, so it would be more appropriate for you to contact the providers of the programmes you prefer to watch. I sympathise as I have a serious hearing loss as well.

We would really like to be able to tune into the New Forces TV Chanel

I know you broadcast on Sky, Vigin and Freesat, but is there any likelihood of FreeVIEW being used in the foreseeable future?
