Petition for Sky to enable subtitles for their 'OnDemand' service

Below is a petition created by my son who is deaf as so am I.  We recently found out that sky had disabled the subtitles on their OnDemand service.  I find this discriminating and insulting towards deaf people.
Please sign it and show your support. Thanks

Done and shared, lets hope the person responsible for turning them off, will be severely reprimanded, and the regulatory bodies,  will make SKY pay one hefty fine that goes back into the deaf community to support, research in finding a cure

Thanks for the more signatures.
I will post on the BT Care forums (if that they can be bothered to lift their finger and enter their name)

@NorthEasterner
It certainly couldn't hurt to post it on their own forums

Re: Petition for Sky to enable subtitles for their 'OnDemand' service

chances are they blocked his forum access for it, sky are ruthless about anyone who in their eyes " disparages there service " in any way, they banned my forum account when I posted a complaint question about my system box always glitching when in playback mode ...

oh and I signed your petition because I believe everyone should be able to have subtitles on if they so choose
just because your paranoid doesn't mean they aren't out to get you
