For most of us television is an important must even when being on holidays. With introducing satellite and cable TV in Peru, we now can enjoy, depending on the provider, around 150 channels including HD transmissions; only very few are national programs, the rest include international TV channels (movie, news, documentary, entertainment...), mostly from the US that are broadcasted in Spanish and English and some other foreign language channels.
When you are living in one of the better hotels, you quite surely have a TV in your room and can zap through the channels as you please. Most hostels have a TV room. Or just stop by one of the many small bars or restaurants where the TV is switched on the entire day. Here you can enjoy an afternoon with Peruvian news, sports or the latest telenovela (soap opera). A good way to improve your Spanish listening skills and get informed about what's going on in the country.
