Mmmmmm... Goa'uld TV.
The very idea that most alien civilizations outside of Earth can speak English is a linguistic impossibility. English was developed long after the stargates were used to populate these other planets and furthermore, English is an amalgamation and evolution of other early languages unique to Earth after the Gou'ald. Nevertheless, production logistics and writing logistics made it more practical for alien encounters to speak English as to eliminate the repetition of Daniel deciphering the language and then translating the language to the rest of the team for any episode dealing with an alien race which were the majority of the episodes. This also helped eliminate the need for the writers to invent a new language for every new alien civilization encountered. This practice carried over into Stargate: Atlantis as well.
The syndicated version of the episode "Within The Serpent's Grasp" does not include O'Neill's quip about whether the Gou'ald long range visual communications device can pick up Showtime.
