Does Apple TV support closed captioning?

As a deaf viewer, closed captioning is mandatory for enabling a viable viewing experience. I recently purchased a Roku2 device, but found the subtitles in Netflix very difficult to read (yellow text without a proper contrast background). I want to understand if that's an issue with Apple TV as well.

    Yes, closed captioning is supported. I found this answer on the Apple Support site (via Google search): To enable Closed Captioning for all video content (when available) select Settings > Audio & Video, and then select Closed Captioning.
