seek recommendation for senior citizen with closed captioning needs

Which TV has the largest closed captioning and is simple to use (smart TV functions/.streaming) for 85 year old who is hard of hearing?

I wonder how long it will be till electronics are made with that demographic in mind-easy to use, reliable closed captions, and kind of idiot proof?

sounds like LGs are not the ones to get.

She just wants a smart TV with large captions.Thanks everyone

Re: seek recommendation for senior citizen with closed captioning needs

Hello Susanwinsor,


Welcome to the Best Buy Support Online Forum Community! I’d be happy to help you find a TV that fits your needs.


Does the individual who you’re purchasing the TV for use a cable box? The closed captioning size is determined by the cable box not the TV in that case. The TV will only dictate the closed captioning size if you’re getting the channels over the air. You’re more than welcome to learn about what the FCC regulates here.


The smart features of TV will also determine the sizes that are available when streaming. Any streaming services in particular they’re looking to watch?


I look forward to your response!
