Great news from José Picardo’s blog that you don’t need SKY or a superduper mega satellite dish to access Spanish TV. As he reports, you can watch several channels online including Canal+ and Telecinco. I agree with José about RTVE being the best though – after nearly a fortnight in Spain, I really miss it. And what’s more, my children miss it too. Youngest was quite taken with the children’s programmes and was quite annoyed when we went to dinner before Los Lunnis had concluded, and the eldest was doing well with the sports programmes. Added to that, the advertisements were obviously very effective as they both recall numerous slogans and songs ;o)
And, as José reports, you can capture the programmes in RealPlayer for use in the classroom. Great news I say.
