New to Lightbox after deciding I need a change from Netflix. I’m finding that the “f” word is dubbed out on the shows ive started watching, it’s really f-ing annoying. Is this common for others, or is there a way to turn it off. Pretty poor if shows are coming pre censored!!

Thanks

i hate that too

 

in america they heavy cut and censored 90% movies on tv

 

so when it comes in to nz they get the censored copy from the supplier not the original copy from the movie studios

CYaBro: Watched the latest episode of Suits and that wasn’t censored.


Weird, I’ve been watching suits and the f word was dubbed in at least two episodes, same with me robot. Man I hope it’s not like that on breaking bad, I want to rewatch that and is one of the main reasons I got lightbox, if they dubbed that half the dialogue would be missing....

Part of an Email received from IMDb.
Teaser Trailer of the Week

Do you like super-violent superheroes and swearing? So do we – which is why we can’t wait for the Prime Original series “The Boys”

Guess that sort of program wouldn’t work on Light Box.
I haven’t noticed any subbing on mainstream TV, Maybe they’re more subtle how they do it.

You sure it's not a setting on your account or something?

 

Logging into a kids account?

LOL To my amusement I just discovered too that I cannot type the word f*** in this forum. Whats with that? Censorship is everywhere these days. But I guess its warranted here to keep things under control.
