Do you produce video content for distribution in the iTunes store? If so, there is a new requirement for any and all content: Videos must include closed captioning and/or subtitles.

The rule is in effect now and applies in the following ways:

  • Any television show episode in English must have closed captioning whether it aired on United States television or not.
  • Movies in English must have either closed captions, encoded subtitles, or both.
  • Movies or TV shows without English audio must have English subtitles.
  • Promotional and bonus material delivered to iTunes and live after June 30, 2015 must have closed captioning.
  • iTunes extras must have closed captioning or encoded subtitles.

VITAC offers a quick turnaround solution for short form videos and can help make yours iTunes ready!

We also offer encoding and translation services in addition to our prerecorded captioning solutions.
