We got Sky TV today! For you non-Italians, this means satellite TV. Three short months after requesting installation, we now have access to 999 channels, literally. While the majority of them are in Italian–and we aren’t quite fluent yet–today I heard with my own ears the sweet sound of English on television. Sure it was coming from the collagen-infused lips of those girls who live in the Playboy mansion, but still.
And there’s more where that came from. Comedy Central? Yep. E! You bet your exclamation point. And not just Fox, but Fox Life, Fox Family and three more versions. (Who knew The Simpsons Channel would become an empire…and I’d discover this only after moving to Rome?) We have movies and some sort of cartoon network as well. But the best part is knowing there are 14 channels devoted to soccer. This is after all, Italy.
