KBFD COLUMN by Jeff Chung

Channel KBS America on Spectrum and Hawaii Telcom has changed its picture size and is in a test period, awaiting feedback from viewers.
It’s changed from letterbox (black bars on top and bottom) to pillarbox (black bars to the left and right), and, as a result, many viewers who have their TV settings on “zoom” have had the subtitles basically disappear from their screens.
Many have called and emailed me saying they no longer see subtitles: The subtitles are there, but you will need to change your TV setting on the remote control to see them.
To do so, find the button on your TV remote labeled “P. Size” (for picture size), “display” or “mode.” Press the button and you will see the screen size change on your TV. In most cases, if you get out of the “zoom” mode and change the setting to “normal” or “wide,” you will see the subtitles once again.
If you have DVR’d the series, the subtitles will all be there. If you have any further questions, please feel to email me.
