Why can't you get subtitles on ITV player?

Savings are easy at local level, take BBC LOOK East, only on for half an hour at 6.30 pm yet 3 people present it. First half is supposed to be ''your local area' then second half is over to the other 2 presenters, who each say a line each in between looking at each other,having a private laugh or just looking at the camera , it is so naff.
Plus of course there is an army of 'local 'reporters who seem to spend their whole day preparing a very short less than riveting report; oh yes and of course there is a 'local' weather forecaster as well.

How would you cut
Sunday 23 August 2015 7:27PM

First thing to cut is the silly idea that two news readers or presenters are needed , each reading a few lines form the auto cue and then doing a side smile at the other till their lines come up ! The local news ( Look East) is dreadful, it's half an hour of local stuff and there are far too many reporters and presenters, half the time the presnters chat to each other and then remember we are there !

Also what do the army of people do ? in what used to be hidden behind the screens but now are in full view back stage, screens, posh chairs and desks by the dozen. Some chat , some collect their bag and go home. Are they needed?

Subtitles are often useless, wrong names, slow completely wrong and suddenly stop. Wrong wording news broadcast in the morning is still wrong later in the day, wht can't somebody get in there and change it, it's just a digital film recording.
ITV don't do them on their itv-player
BBC ones stop after few mins on BBC iplayer on my Samsung tv....BBC say its Samsung app Samsung say it's all BBC fault....me the view get no where.

We the hard of hearing pay our licence and by the products on ITV so why can't we have a top rate service?
