Italian Television

Postby TangoChaser » 16 Jan 2009, 23:51

Does anyone know of a good source to view Italian TV programming on the internet? I'm located in Florida (US) and my local cable provider has no Italian programming available. Supposedly by mid year they are to offer one Channel (Studio 100) I think.

I have found a couple channels by using BeelineTV.com but their links are usually broken.

I always see adds for "internet tv" from any country but it requires a fee. I'd hate to pay for something that is not what it seems.

Any ideas.

You could 'try' this site... it says it's free, but you do need to register to see if there are signals to the various channels...

Hi Tango,

I just recently came across a site that I think is just what you're lookin for. It's http://www.progdvb.com/

It gets you completely free satellite television from almost every conceivable country. I downloaded it last week and it looks like there are around 40 or 50 Italian programming channels, as well as radio channels.

You are required to download a specific media player for this service, but its simple and in no time you are watching international television for free. On the left hand side of the website, under ProgDVB, click download and then pick the file appropriate for your operating system.

Ask me if you've got any trouble getting it to work.

GuardaTV is the Italian name for TV Tutti, a Dutch Company based in Amsterdam.

It is free and works great.

It is great, however the major private network, Mediaset, is not there!

No real surprise... I can't imagine 'Berla' allowing free access to his three Mediaset channels - Canale 5, Italia 1 and Retequattro. They will almost certainly remain as 'Pay View Channels' on the internet.
