I enjoy watching TV shows/Movie with English subtitle. Since English is not my 1st language, looking at the subtitle improve my spelling and I have a better idea on characters names.
But I hate Closed Caption (CC), it ruins the scenes with descriptions like "sigh, laughter, and women screaming" and most of the time, they don't seem inappropriate. Worst when the CC shows up before action take place on the screen.
I'm currently watching The Boys and would love to have English Subtitle only without CC.

It probably has to do with the content itself. Personally speaking, some Netflix shows I watch have regular subtitles whereas others have closed captioning (with sound descriptions). I think it's up to the creator/publisher what kind of text appears on the screen, and there's generally nothing on the user end that can be done to change it aside from disabling the feature altogether.
