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.
It's usually safe to talk honestly and openly with people because they typically are not really listening anyway.
