    I've been converting my movies for years and adding subtitles on them for a while too, but I always had to clean them up manually so the Apple TV could take them. Same applies with Quicktime and my iPhone.

    Today however, I accidentally had two lines of italiced text slip up from my clean up and it showed up just fine in Quicktime. Checked it on my iPhone 4S and it shows up just fine too. Subtitles like they're supposed to. I don't have my Apple TV anymore, can anyone confirm that italiced subs work on the Apple TV?

    I'm talking about soft subs of course. Thanks guys. :D

    Italic has always been supported.
    The apps that writes the subtitles had to write the the right information, but it worked even on the first appletv. Colors too and underlined too.
