If it is the FiOS STB that is generating the captions, they can be controlled by using the * key on the remote, also labeled with "cc" (just above the A key). Pressing that key multiple times will cycle through the various closed Captions options, one of which is "off."
If it is your TV generating the closed captions, you will need to figure out how to turn them on and off, it will depend on your TV.
