Built for FCC Standards

The world of closed captioning is constantly evolving. Metro Captions doesn’t just keep up. We blaze the trails of captioning, by providing FCC compliant captioned programming .

Easy File Transfers

Having been in the captioning industry for decades, we know how important it is to simplify the file sharing/transfer process. Be a caption file or tape format – we will make it easy for you.

The Global Caption Solution

Our studio is located in the heart of New York City, but we serve clients from all corners of the world. Whether captions for a TV network or a subtitled video for a company in Asia, we will make it happen.

Our Story

It’s just a moment in time – just one second of broadcast programming.

But it’s more than that at Metro Captions.

We make sure we do everything possible for one to “enjoy” that second of programming to its fullest extent – from our commitment to the highest quality of FCC compliant captions, to the way we engage and communicate with our clients and do business responsibly.

From our beginning as a small entity in a loft in Brooklyn, New York, to the present where we sit as a forefront leader in broadcast closed captioning, we tried to make closed captioning a little better than we found it, and we think we’ve succeeded.
