In Italy the 1st commercial TV was Telebiella in 1971.
The boom of commercial TV started in the 80s when Berlusconi founded the group Finnvest (now Mediaset). During his government, also the public TV (3 RAI channels) was shamefully under his direct control, making LA7 the only indipendent and reliable news channel.

Interesting when you realize that there never was any European network nor probably will be. Its either national or global TV.

There is Euronews. Eurosport is also European-wide, but with many local editions (like MTV).

I assume those come in multiple versions for different languages?

Currently on hold with my cable company because I've noticed a USB port on my cable box and am wondering if I could just watch TV on my computer. That would do, for now....

True, it is the EBU news channel, although not really comparable to the NBC, CBS etc. Three mutations if I am correct, english, french and german. You can change the language in Dual modes.

Often, people receive the BBC World service, not the BBC 1, 2 and 3. There are some cheesy and awful productions from BBC as well, though that is rarely exported.

RAI Internazionale also has programming that is superior to RAI 1, for instance.

Well, there is the European Broadcast Union which coordinates transmission of sports and live events, certain programs and, most famously, the Eurovision contest

Actually Euronews is avaible in at least 8 different languages. The ones I can choose the dubbing to be are English, French, German, Italian, Spanish, Portuguese, Russian and even Arabic! I have some 110 channels of digital TV, some of them in HD quality, for just about €13 per month. On many of the international channels I can choose different language dubbing or subtitles. Most of the time lately my tv is on the whole day on the BabyTV channel, as my little daughter watches from time to time and enjoys the songs I think also it will help her easily learn English

Ok, I didn't know Euronews changed that much in the last 10 years.

As Chris said, Eurosport could be the only true one European network.

i also feel sorry when i see such things happened. i remember when i worked in transportation company the drivers were complaining that unloading places were often at impossible positions where you could hardly pass with larger van, not to mention our 15 or 17 metres long lorries. it was especially present while unloading at some building sites (driving Knauf for Italy, horrible horrible horrible!), but some magazines were also horribly positioned.

Yup. The English magazine (non-daily newspaper) and the Italian magazzino (warehouse) are false friends.

oh. fortunately we have Italians here
i often talk to Italians at work, some of them speak some Croatian (jsut as I speak some Italian). and they always say "magazin" for warehouse, and actually in Croatian magazin means the same as in English or Polish - kind of journal.

Talking of badly-arranged magazines (and YouTube and TV....)

I only have two words to describe why BBC is superior to RAI. Two words, five letters: no ads.
