    Jeff,

    From what I'm seeing, the Apple TV will indeed support sub titles (closed captioning) as long as the original media has it. This means that the show/movie/whatever must have the sub titles as it comes from the distributor. If it does, the new Apple TV will supposedly let you use them.

    However, there have been some reports that the sub titles are rendered in a font that's too small to see. That may be an issue that Apple will address with a future software update. Time will tell.

    There's also a software product that will do soft sub titles for Apple TV as well as other devices. It's called iSubTitle. Reviews on it sound pretty good.

    Of course, keep in mind that since I don't personally use sub titles, this is all based on things I've seen or heard about. I don't have any personal usage experience with these things to share.

    Jeff,

    Found this post on DeafMac.org. Seems that now, at least with iTunes, you can search for movies that are closed captioned.

    On Amazon, in the Movies and TV department, there is an advanced search that will let you search for items that have subtitles in the language of your choice.
