How do I turn on English captions on Univision? I'd like to brush up on my Spanish.

I believe the caption is from the broadcaster. So if the only broadcast captions in Spanish that would be the only option.
But I could be mistaken

DIRECTV customer since SEPT 2000 (1) Genie (2) Genie Mini's (1) HR22-100 (1) HR23-700 all networked, total 10 live tunners!!-------------
SAYING NO TO CABLE .. PRICELESS
There’s good TV there’s better TV and than there’s DIRECTV (the undisputed sports & HD leader in TV)

Menu --> Settings & help --> Settings--> Display --> Captioning (Set Captioning to On and Service 3)

Not all programs will have English captions, if they do, they'll have a "CC3" bug in one corner of the screen... Telemundo usually has English captions for all their primetime shows...

When I was in the Netherlands, I was able to switch between English and other language audios on some on the channels. I think the Spanish Language stations could increase viewers by offering English audio feeds.
It's only tv!

Good luck with your Spanish. By the way you don't really need to know Spanish to follow the Telenovelas.:)

The best programs are the Saturday morning dance programs...they will have you muttering some new Spanish words under your breath every few minutes ;)
