I am not sure if it is a bug on Apple TV or Netflix app is not using Apple TV subtitle API, custom subtitle settings do not work.

Did you configure subtitles in the AppleTV settings the way you want them? If that isn't working with Netflix, try swiping down from the top of the Siri remote while something is playing in Netflix and see if there is a custom setting available. I don't use Netflix myself, by I saw in a review that swiping down shows a hidden menu during playback, same with swiping up. I believe it was in DetroitBorg's review on YouTube about the ATV4.

custom subtitle works great with ATV 3 since netflix was built specifically for ATV 3.

netflix on ATV 4 is just a generic app that is also on many other devices/TV. it seems that Netflix does not use ATV 4 subtitle settings since my settings does not work.
