Any recommendations for home internet and television packages for expats?

I regularly receive a mountain of junk mail advertising internet and tv packages, but they all look so similar, so was wondering is there one that is better for an English speaker who doesn't speak Polish...

I would think that any 'internet package' offering British TV is dodgy given that UK content is not meant to be shown outside of the UK. If it's the basic channels you're after try this link - which I hasten to add is completely legal (so it says) http://britishtvchannels.com/

Theyre all pretty much the same since theres only a couple of English language channels available: BBC, CNN, Bloomberg.

However, more and more channels allow you to switch to native sound and/or English subtitles.

Are only the news channels in English? Or are there other channels in English with Polish subtitles? Movies, sports, history channel, discovery channel, etc
