To be on save side during bad weather I would choose an C/N of 12 dB.
So far es I know - and it is old terrible fashion - all movies shown on DF-1
are in the german language. Sometimes you get the original language via the
public broadcasters WDR, NDR and ADR. But only sometimes. They say to have
problems with licences if they use the original language. Around
synchroniastion a whole industry is build up and they dont want to loose
jobs and money.
