Netflix settles with deaf-rights group.
Thursday October 11th, 2012
In an agreement that the National Association for the Deaf (NAD) calls “a model for the streaming video industry,” Netflix has agreed to caption all of its shows by the year 2014.
The online-streaming giant is already captioning 82 percent of its videos, according to the consent decree filed in court yesterday. Now, it’s bound to finish its entire library, reaching the 90 percent mark in 2013 and 100 percent by 2014.
