Error Code:

Extraneous Content - Censorship (Text)


Asset Type: Captions, Forced Narratives, Subtitles, Burned-in Subtitles, Commentary Timed Text

Text files contain censorship exhibited by truncation of obscenities [“s---”] or insertion of replacements during obscenities [“bleep,” “#@!*&”] that does NOT follow audio.  IF censored text follows censored audio, THEN the text files do not need to be amended.


You must request an uncensored timed text file or correct the existing timed text file by replacing any truncated or replaced obscenities with complete words, then redeliver a new asset that does not contain any censored text.

If you are unable to locate or create an uncensored timed text file, please contact your Netflix representative by leaving a comment on the Source Request in Backlot.
