    I just tried watching the Baader Meinhof Complex. However, after about ten or twenty minutes, I ended up with a pounding headache coming on.

    The reason for this is that the subtitles are too small.

    I have seen them on other things plenty big enough, but on Sky HD is takes all my effort to just see them.

    It's a shame really, as I can't even buy the Blu-Ray at a reasonable cost.

    Sky subtitles are pretty large so the ones in the film you mentioned were supplied and implemented by the film maker - not sky, so you cant blame them for this !

    Thank you. I thought I'd seen the subtitles on Sky before and that they were fine. Normally they are fine on everything.

    These were particularly small.

    ...and even if you could, the subtitles would still be the same size. :thumbsup:

    The dialogue was in several languages so clearly the subtitles were provided by the film-makers, and WERE small, though in the case of the childish four-letter words scattered throughout, that was not a bad thing.
