If you’re an avid user of the Peacock streaming service, you’ve likely come across the issue of subtitles being cut off. This can be frustrating, especially if you’re trying to follow along with dialogue or captions. Fortunately, there are several ways to fix this issue and ensure that your viewing experience is not disrupted.
Why Are Subtitles Cut Off?
The most common reason for subtitles being cut off is due to the aspect ratio of the video. If the video is in widescreen format, but the subtitles are formatted for a standard aspect ratio, the text may be cut off on the sides. Additionally, if the video is being displayed on a smaller screen, such as a mobile device, the subtitles may be too small to read or may be cut off due to the limited space.
How to Fix Subtitles Being Cut Off
There are several ways to fix subtitles being cut off on Peacock. The first is to adjust the aspect ratio of the video. Most streaming devices, such as Roku or Apple TV, will have an option to adjust the aspect ratio in the settings. This will ensure that the video and subtitles are displayed correctly on your screen. Another option is to adjust the font size of the subtitles. This can be done in the settings of the Peacock app or within your device’s accessibility settings. Increasing the font size will make the subtitles easier to read and less likely to be cut off. Finally, if neither of these options work, you can try using a different device to watch Peacock. Some devices may display the subtitles better than others, so it’s worth experimenting to find the best option for you.
If you’re experiencing issues with subtitles being cut off on Peacock, there are several ways to fix the problem. By adjusting the aspect ratio, font size, or trying a different device, you can ensure that your viewing experience is not disrupted.
