CODA is breaking new ground before the film even premieres.
The new Apple TV+ film, as reported by Reuters, will be the first theatrical release with subtitles "burned" into the video. This means that subtitles will be present on all releases of the film rather than there being separate releases with subtitles or special equipment needed.
CODA tells the story of 17-year-old Ruby, the sole hearing member of a deaf family (CODA, or child of deaf adults). Before school, she works as an interpreter for her parents on their fishing boat but one day discovers her passion for singing.
CODA will premiere on Apple TV+ on Friday, August 13. If you want to enjoy the film in the best quality possible, the best streaming device to watch it on is the new Apple TV 4K.
