About Subtitles

For content with English subtitles available, you can enjoy watching it with subtitles by purchasing points. Subtitles will be added as soon as possible, so we ask for your kind patience.

There are two types of subtitle translation: AI translation and regular translation.

The number of points needed to purchase the subtitles depends on the content.

*AI translations: Translations made by our AI translations software and checked by our dedicated staff. These subtitles are prepared as soon as possible after the content is released.

*Regular translations: Our dedicated staff handles everything from transcription to translation. Although compared to AI translation, the process is slower, these subtitles can be easier to read and understand.
