Although l am over 70 years of age and find computers and the ever-increasing technology difficult to understand/ use, l still like to try to get to grips with most of it, or my daughter helps me. I hope l have managed to sort out this last challenge

If you are talking about Freeview, then subtitles appear to be available on every Quest channel BUT they may not be available on all programmes.

James :

According to Quest's EPG, there are highlights on Tuesday 12th Oct. at 0500 on Quest - LCN12 (or 0600 on Quest+1 - LCN69) so as long as you get the SDN/COM4 multiplex for Quest, or the ArqA/COM5 multiplex for Quest+1 you can watch that.
Other than that, it lists Live coverage at 1245-1700 on Quest.

It you want to watch on-line (you may have to use your set's browser as when I last checked there wasn't an App (Dplay?) , then try discovery+
It seems you have to register (a free account) and AFAIK you don't have to upgrade to a paid subscription to watch Quest.

It seems like you can't register for a free account on Discovery, so watching Quest Red on demand is not possible without paying for a subscription!

Gabrielle Milano: Quest Red is a free to air channel, but you need an active subscription to be able to use the recording function (or play back previous recordings) on a Sky box.

Thankyou so much for your reply.
I appreciate it !
B4 I sent myself mad.
I just assumed if I had the channel I would be able to watch previous episodes.
But why should I pay sky for a free view channel !
