    Is there a way to remove the soft black box which is behind subtitles in the latest iOS update for Apple TV?

    Go to subtitles editing and create and edit custom subtitles. I don't remember exactly the titles of where you go, but it's there. My family yelled when I removed them, I did it in the beta versions but I'm sure it's in 6.0.

    Sorry to bother you guys, but I can't find any settings related to subtitles format on my Apple TV. The only thing I can find about subtitles is setting a default language. Where on Apple TV settings can I take this annoying black box off? I'm running the most recent software (6.0) for my third generation Apple TV. Thanks.


    Found it!!! Accessibility menu! Thanks.

    General->Accessibility->Style (create one and then there is an option to edit it...set Opacity to 0%).

    Am I the only one seeing messed up settings with the subtitles options? I tried to make a custom subtitles setting but the second time I tried to edit the parameters the preview of the subtitles didn't change, no matter which settings I modified.
