Windows 7: Question for all you non-Americans :)

Question for all you non-Americans :)

My friend and I were watching Monday Night Football last night and started talking about international TV. To make a long story short, in whatever country you are from do they broadcast American TV shows? We were just wondering... We don't really get any TV shows from other countries (unless of course, they are remakes), and we also don't really get movies from other countries (aside from a few). But at the same time, we always hear about how well American movies did overseas, is this the same for TV shows?

If so, what shows do you get (unless its all of them), and which shows are made in your country that you think I should try and find online?

Thanks

Oh yes, we get plenty of American stuff here in the UK, american news and TV channels, movies, cartoons, etc etc

And no i can't make a list as i would be here all day.

I would probably say a good 50 - 60% of our TV stuff is american.

Unless you turn on BBC 1, 2, 3 and 4 then it is normally UK stuff with the few American films each night.

I think if you have a sky (cable) subscription in the UK then we get pretty much everything from the states, ie Stargate Universe, Bones, Law and Order, SVU etc. It usually tells us that its being aired a few days after showing in the states. As for English programmes its hard to advise unless you state what kind of programmes you are into. Hope this helps.

This guide is what we can access on our tv.

Australian TV Guide / Perth / Tuesday 2 November / Night

ABC is the Australian Broadcasting Commission. Mostly Australian & English content.

SBS is a bit of everything, leaning towards ethnic shows, from europa, etc.

CH7, CH9, CH10 are commercial channels with various Aussie & American content.

The idea is to have each broadcaster with 3 channels, giving us a total of 15.
These are free to air. We have other stuff, like Foxtel, etc, but that costs money.

Have a look at the guide to see what's on and you will find a lot of shows you know.

You might check out BBC America Kirsch. It is part of our channel line up on Dish. Some pretty good shows and news from from across the pond.

Better than the original. Ricky Gervais is best taken in very small doses.
