I just ordered this box from Amazon. It's probably to late for all you above about the subtitles but I will come back in a week or so and write which season contains which subtitle language. I would like to know myself (Swedish) but I'll survive if it isn't there. As long there is English subtitles I'll manage :)

Sorry for not replying erlier.. actually forgot about my promise ;)

I have checked both the case of each season and gone through a couple of discs in each season to verify that it is the correct information (and the boxes do match up with the acutal content)

here we go:

Season 1:
Language: English, French, English for hearing impaired
Subtitles: English, French, Dutch, Arabic, Finnish, Greek, Hebrew, Hungarian, Norweigan, Portugese, Romanian, Swedish

Season 2:
Language: English, French, English for hearing impaired
Subtitles: English, French, Dutch, Arabic, Finnish, Greek, Hebrew, Hungarian, Norweigan, Portugese, Swedish

Season 3:
Language: English, French, English for hearing impaired
Subtitles: English, French, Dutch, Danish, Finnish, Greek, Hungarian, Norweigan, Portugese, Swedish

Season 4:
Language: English, French, English for hearing impaired
Subtitles: English, French, Dutch, Danish, Finnish, Greek, Hungarian, Norweigan, Portugese, Swedish

Season 5:
Language: English, French, English for hearing impaired
Subtitles: English, French, Dutch, Danish, Finnish, Greek, Hungarian, Norweigan, Portugese, Swedish

I'll ad the runtime of each season aswell:

Season 1: 775 min = 13 episodes
Season 2: 703 min = 12 episodes
Season 3: 703 min = 12 episodes
Season 4: 780 min = 13 episodes
Season 5: 622 min = 10 episodes

Hope it will help somone in the future!

does any body knows why spanish sustitles are never included? not here, not in Sopranos or other HBO series I have checked...

P. Paramio says:
Because Spanish distributors have the exclusivity for the dubbing and Spanish subtitles so they can charge us €250 for the 5 seasons...

what a shame

So French language and french subtitles are available but on description(and on a photo), we can see "subtitles: English" and "Hearing impaired: French"..

My question is to know if subtitles is the same thing hearing impaired(subtitles=hearing impaired)?

For me it's the same thing and kaan sensoy's photo, there is a description(from Kaan?) who confirm my opinion

Thx.

There is two separate questions.

Hearing impaired implies/means that there are extra explanation in the subtitles for people with hearing disabilities (deaf people for example). So you have information like 'music playing ', 'heavy breathing ' etc so those people can understand what noises are in the scene (since they can't hear it properly).

When it comes to your French language question. There are French subtitles on every disc/season according to the box. When I look at the individual cases it says French dub/language as well. So you can have it either way you want when you watch the show. But there are no French subtitles for the hearing impaired.

And believe me, it's one of the most amazing shows you'll come around and see! It's amazing! :)

And sorry if I misspelled anything. I'm swedish :P

I'm french and my english isn't good so you're perfect, thanks. :-)

So hearing impaired is more explicative than simple subtitles. There is an error on description and a photo even if this is not very serious.

And yes the show is wonderfull and it's my favorite TV Series. And this complet box is simple but pretty cool, more than the seasons one by one. I like the US version but she is not be viewable in Europe. And french integrale is not good.
