Hi. You can select subtitles on the show you want to watch on netflix. I've never checked out the BBC iplayer so i can't say i'm afraid.
Sorry..I bought it to give to a friend.
While Netflix has subtitles for the majority of its content, I have found several that have no subtitles. It is really down to whether the particular app supports subtitles, and not a feature of the Roku itself.
