Thank you for the explanation on how to set AD.
I bought a Fire Stick on Amazon Prime day last week and
have been tapping the remote like a demented monkey until giving up.

The only info i could find online was about turning the voice view on or 

I will be trying the menu double tap later on today for what it is
worth the series The Crown on Netflix  has AD my wife
and I have watched the entire series 1.

As far as i know the AD process on Netflix is a hidden art but will 
trying the double tap thing on that too.
