Have you verified that the particular shows you want have this? The
interface for Prime certainly offers various subtitle options, but the
other day I watched a few episodes on Prime from four different series
(a couple produced by Amazon, a couple produced by U.S. networks) and
all of them had Japanese subtitles hard-coded into the video stream
with no subtitle options available at all. (This seems common for
foreign programs in Japan, at least English-langauge ones, for many
services. Hulu used to do this a lot, and back in the day when I
watched digital television it was the same for many foreign shows
