Netflix, NAD Agreement: 100% Captions on Streaming Video in Two Years

Netflix and the National Association of the Deaf Reach Historic Agreement to
Provide 100% Closed Captions in On-Demand Streaming Content Within Two Years

Netflix Inc. and the National Association of the Deaf (NAD), a non-profit
organization, have submitted a joint Consent Decree to a federal court in
Springfield, Mass., ensuring closed captions in 100% of Netflix streaming
content within two years.

NAD, along with the Western Massachusetts Association of the Deaf and
Hearing-Impaired (WMAD/HI) and Lee Nettles, a deaf Massachusetts resident,
brought suit against Netflix seeking that commitment in 2010.
