Cablecom channels 80-98 - German only or is it by program?

According to the cablecom website all but a couple of the channels in the 80-98 range are only German, but someone at work said that it is usually by program, not channel. Before we add any channels (and expense) just wondering if anyone has these channels and know for sure? Main ones we are looking at are the sports channels and maybe at least one of the movie ones (ie MGM).

It would help if we knew what these channels were because most of us dont have them in memory. if its what I am thinking....Discovery, National Geographic, History Channel, TNT Serie....etc. I think these are by default in German, but TNT Film and Serie are both also available in english, and as for the other ones...it depends on the show. The history channel for example has some programs that are english with german voiceover but you cannot remove the voiceover....some are just english....its all very random.

Its best to look at the cablecom website and see which channel is english, and which channel is english/german

those are the right ones - and I did look at the website (as mentioned it says they are all German except two) but some of the other channels that we have also say German but it depends on the program so was just wanting to check if it's the same, which it seems it is. really don't understand why they don't have the english track for shows that were made in english! oh well.

I have cablecom and i am vety happy with it. You can change ur settings so that TV shows are played in their original language. However sometimes you have to do it manually or sometimes they just dont do it!

Some films are played in English and sometimes not. Depends on the channel. But on some nights you get a good choice of films/programmes to watch due to all the channels available.
