You asked and we listened! Captions are now available on 10 play Live TV for web and some Telstra TV models.
To turn captions on for web you'll need to be watching Live TV on either 10, 10 Peach or 10 Bold. Once you've started live streaming, click the speech bubble in the bottom right-hand corner of the video. Upon clicking, the speech bubble should go completely white and this will turn the captions on. Click it again to turn it off, the inside area will be greyed out.
This will be turned off by default.
