KBS America/KBS World on Dish
Is there two different channels of KBS America or KBS World on Dish Network showing different programming?
I notice there are two different schedule with some shows cancel on one channel and another show added on another, then both channels air the same shows again together at a different same time.

I only see channel 652 on the SD side.

Dish actually broadcasts KBS America even though the station identifier alternated between KBS World and KBS America. Part of the confusion is the EPG, which is bad, bad, bad for KBS. I lost three episodes of War of the Roses because the schedule changed, but the EPG did not. And KBS does not usually repeat programming. The guide is better than it used to be, but it still is sometimes inaccurate. To add greater confusion, shows actually start late often. Teen Soliloquy is supposed to start at noon on Saturday, but I always get the end of Vitamin. So if you are interested in recording, I recommend that you add a few extra minutes to the recording. A couple of must see programs are VJ Report, Screening Humanity, and I used to watch Backpacker Videos when it was on.
Try checking the program guide off the internet, its usually late Monday before the weekly guide gets updated but it can be used as a supplement to the EPG

Also - is there any guide listing what has English subtitles and what doesn't?
If there is I haven't saw it, my wife just spot checks the programs and records the shows she likes that actually have English subtitles. Its some what of a challenge for her to keep up because English is her second language.
