Albanian TV

I was thinking maybe some of you would be curious about what Albanian TV is like, so I made a list of all the channels we get with a digital service for about 25 USD/month.

In Albanian
Top Channel
Digi
Bang-Bang
Junior TV
Explorer 1, 2
Channel X
News 24
TV KLAN

Movies in English (with Albanian subtitles)
Digi Autor
DigiPremiere
DigitALB 5, 6, 7, 8
(These are pretty good channels!)

Soccer/Football
Premium 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 (Yeah count 'em-- 5 channels devoted just to ONE sport!!)

Albanian Music
My Music
BBF
(I can't listen to these even for one minute- uggg!)

In Italian (Wish I knew Italian!)
Discovery, Disc Civilisation
National Geographic
RAI 1, 2, 3
Canale 5
Italia 1
Rete 4

In Greek
Alpha TV (seems really dull to me!)

In English (not much to choose from is there?)
Fashion TV
MTV Europe
Euronews
Eurosport
CNN
BBC World

So now you know why I am soooooo thrilled that my little SlingBox works!

Interesting. The only English channels we get (for free with a satellite dish) are CNN International, Sky News and MTV.

Whaaaaa?

You don't like BBF?

Maybe you are not the target audience for a station that thrives on young Albanian chicks, shaking their thang, to jacked American beats...

Do you think I can get a SlingBox hooked up to the Albanian TV? I would give a leg for all those soccer channels.

I'd love to have these Italian channels... I took 2 classes at Uni but am forgetting all of the language because I never use it!

And the movies with Albanian subtitles are great to learn Albanian I think! It's what I did when I was in The Netherlands to learn Dutch... Watch English, read Dutch.

No French channel?! :P TV5? :)

Anyways...

Christine... you definitely NEED a SlingBox!
Digital... LOL... guess I'm not!
Vloraboy... I bet it would work.
Christelle... I learned an awful lot of Dutch that way too!
llukan... tsk.. tsk... It's cartoons for kiddies I think!

In Hannover we have only the BBC channel in English. Not even CNN. I guess it's even less than basic TV! But we do watch lots of sports and try to keep up with the German :)
