How to watch Netflix in Spanish

I try my best not to let Titan watch “shows” but like most moms, I have my breaking points. Usually when one of us is sick (which has been happening an awful lot lately – thanks a bunch, flu season). Luckily, I feel slightly less guilty about letting him watch something if it is in Spanish.

Disclaimer- of course, I don’t think he will learn Spanish on his own from watching movies (children need a human being to interact with to really pick up on a language, which he actually has since half of the people in my family, including the husband,  can speak Spanish fluently) and I don’t advocate letting your children watch television or movies. But as a last resort, which we all need at some point, here is how I justify some movie time for the little:

  1. Select the movie or TV show you want to play.
  2. Select Audio & Subtitles from the options panel.
  3. Select “Spanish” or “Spanish (5.1)”
  4. Press Back to return to the options panel.
  5. Select Play.

Now, not every Blu-ray player, smart TV, etc. is the same, so there may be a little difficulty in finding the audio and subtitles menu depending on how you access Netflix. The “Kids” profile in Netflix is also a little bit… special. When using the “Kids” profile via our Xbox, I can just use the down arrow at any time to go to the audio and subtitles menu. On my phone, I can tap the screen and the audio and subtitles icon is available in the upper right-hand corner (next to the volume), so you may need to fiddle around a little bit before you can find how to change things.

Now that I’ve given you the power of the Spanish Netflix, don’t abuse it! Play with your kiddos!

Kisses,

Brunette

    Sweet! I really want my girl to learn Spanish but I don’t speak it… Her aunt does though! But maybe this’ll help her get used to hearing another language! And maybe I should learn, too…
