List of television channels in Italy

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

This is a list of national Italian TV services available on digital terrestrial, satellite, cable systems in Italy. Some channels have a "timeshift" service, i.e. the same programming (and usually advertisements as well) broadcast one or two hours later to give viewers another chance to catch a favourite programme. On free satellite, as well as on Sky Italia, foreign channels are also available, such as BBC World News, CNN International, France 24, MTV Dance, MTV Rocks, etc. For Italian-speaking channels not based in Italy, or not having studios in Italy, please see the link above this paragraph.
