No.  Or, I should say "Not until I asked."  And the answer is: DVD is soft coded while the streams of these particular shows are "usually" Japanese-only and hard codes.  The Amazon Q&A person who replied says that there are "some" switchable multilingual streaming shows and that the Japanese description will say "ソフトコード".  My understanding is that if it isn't mentioned, the subs are hard coded.
