They have also included an improved TV guide that will allow you to find what you are looking for or schedule a TV evening with your family. In a few clicks you will fly back to Italy as soon as you immerse yourself in programs that are part of daily life in Italy. 

One of my personal favorite programs in Italy is Rai’s “Report”, an Italian television program hosted by Sigfrido Ranucci that embarks on fascinating and in-depth journalistic investigations. One recent investigation called “Svenditalia” spoke about cities in Italy that essentially are accused of “selling their souls” to tourism with the wealthiest. Of course, now with Covid19 everything has evolved and is in the process of evolving. 

Another show that my husband credits with having helped him learn Italian (and learn about the culture) is called “L'eredità” (The Legacy). This popular game show beloved by Italians involves 7 competitors (6 new competitors plus the existing champion) placed in a circle and must answer, one after the other, a variety of questions posed by the host. 

Sports lovers will appreciate being able to keep up with the Serie A, a professional league competition for football clubs located at the top of the Italian football league system. The winner is awarded the Scudetto and the Coppa Campioni d'Italia. It has been operating as a round-robin tournament for over ninety years since the 1929–30 season. 

Essentially it is the ideal way to be able to connect with Italy regularly through its most popular programming and keep a piece of “casa dolce casa” for you wherever you reside in the globe. The device is easy to install and prices start around $99.00 depending on how many months of service you want included. 

Plus, there’s no risk in case you find out it’s not right for you. Regarding the money back guarantee, you have 10 days from the day you receive your device to return it for a full refund. No questions asked. And you are covered for up to 1 year if your device breaks for any reason they will replace it with a new one for free. 

As an extra bonus, every day there will be new film available in Italian to watch, perfect to wind down after a long day and help your family stay in touch with their native language.
