As from next summer, MGM catalog releases in region 2 won't include subtitles in German, Italian or Spanish. Apparently, they consider those are 'dubbing-favoring' languages, so there's no need to cater for the subtitling-reading minority (or the hearing impaired, for that matter). The French still get a dub track and French subtitles. Upcoming MGM titles such as Judgment at Nurenberg and On the Beach have already announced and, indeed, German, Italian and Spanish subtitles are missing from the feature list. There's no confirmation of what will happen on other regions. Hello, MGM? I thought one of the main selling points of DVD was the option of choosing multiple soundtracks and subtitles. The Spanish mundoDVD community on ezboard has set up a petition. Although this may matter little to you, if they get away with this may be they will want to cut corners on something that does affect you. It is written in English and Spanish. Petition - Subtitles are not expendable Thanks very much for your support. It means a lot.
