    Yes, but only if the station provides an SAP audio feed.

    SAP is a function of the BTSC/MTS audio system from analog NTSC television, circa 1982. SInce NTSC is now limited to LPs and translators, it is nearly extinct.

    But ATSC and cable/sat stations can contain multiple audio programs. If available, you can usually tell by pressing the yellow button, which will pop up a contextual menu. If there are audio options, they will be listed.
