You May Have More Language Listening Opportunities Than You Think

You may have more foreign language listening choices than you think. If you have a tv capable of tuning the Secondary Audio Programming (SAP) you may be able to access Spanish language audio in the United States. I also recently noticed our cable carrier (Charter) started using the feature on the digital channels. We have a motorola digital cable tuner and years ago I turned the default language to spanish in the audio setup menu (under setup on your main menu.) Only recently have I noticed that they’re actually making that work with some channels. (Boomerang/PBS Kids currently.)

It’s not every single program that has other language content available. Digital tv specifications do allow for alternate language tracks, so we could be seeing even more possibilities for language listening in the brave new digital world of broadasting that’s coming.

(Satellite receivers should be capable of similar audio track alternatives.)
