Some NBC and Fox Online Shows have Closed Captioning

Lance Pickett notes that some TV networks are adding closed captioning to the Web-based versions of their TV show episodes:

I'm a big fan of NBC's Heroes and I was very excited when I found out that NBC offered Closed Captioning on selected shows (Heroes is one of them)! I'd like to personally thank NBC for making Closed Caption possible on some shows, especially Heroes.

Fox also has some online videos with Closed Caption options available to a limited selection of online videos. But hey, it's a start! I'm just excited to see the CC technology grow. I will continue to hope that the CC video libraries online will continue to grow.

So again, my sincere thanks to the studios that offer Closed Caption. Anyone reading this can check it out at I prefer the NBC Captioning style and TV shows selections better. Now, if only I could figure out how to get those shows with CC into my AppleTV or iPhone.

Bravo. And thanks to R. Brian W. for the tip.
