If we use this - will change to United Kingdom.

In addition, I would advise to use "the United Kingdom" instead of
"England". The word "subtitles" is used in Wales, Scotland and Northern
Ireland as well. 

See http://www.bbc.co.uk/info/policies/subtitles.shtml for information on
subtitles for the BBC (the UK's main TV network).
