Many people who use a motorised satellite dish enjoy television in other languages, whether they are practicing their language skills, brushing up on a language their parents speak, or simply watching in their first or bilingual language. There are many sports channels available to access via a motorised satellite dish in various languages, and there are also adult content channels which some may find appealing. Those who prefer a motorised dish to paid services usually enjoy having their content in another language, rather than seeing is as a flaw.
With a larger dish, you can access a lot of content which may be shown in English, or with subtitles, and a lot of radio content is also in English, which many people find they enjoy greatly. There are a few hidden gems which you will soon pick up, such as watching opera via German satellites, or French sporting channels for skating. For some items, it does not matter which language you are watching it in, especially arts and classical music, which are broadcast in their original language.
