Portugal – Internet, Television, and the Press
Nowadays, about thirty seven percent of households in Portugal have a high-speed internet connection, and about eighty percent of companies have internet access.
There are many internet service providers in Portugal. Some of the main ones are Novis, PTWiFi, Vodaphone, and Kanguru.
In order to subscribe to an internet service in Portugal it is required that you be a resident, but even if you are not, you can still use the internet in one of many cafes and post offices that offer internet services upon payment. Many shopping centres, hotels, and conference centres also provide special internet areas where you can pay to use internet, often on an hourly basis.
There are both national and private TV channels in Portugal, but most of the Portuguese watch cable TV. Two major cable TV service providers in Portugal are TV TEL and TV Cabo.
Portugal has four over-the-air television channels:
– RTP1 – It was the first television channel in Portugal and it started airing in 1957.
– RTP2 – The second national broadcast channel that followed soon after.
– SIC and TVI – The first two private commercial broadcast channels launched in the 1990s.
Portuguese national television is funded by taxes and no additional license fees are necessary.
Sky TV has also been available in Portugal for the last couple of years. In order to access it, you will need a Sky viewing card and a digital receiver.
Newspapers and Magazines
There is a very wide selection of newspapers and magazines in Portugal, both local and international. Daily, weekly, and monthly issues can be purchased at any newspaper stand or at a supermarket.
Foreign magazines and newspapers can mostly be found in major cities and resort areas. Portugal also issues a large selection of newspapers for native English speakers, as well as newspapers and magazines primarily targeted to expats living in Portugal. Some good examples of these types of press are The Resident and Essential Portugal. The newspapers primarily intended for foreign or naturalised readers in Portugal can typically be found at newspaper stands, or at restaurants and hotels.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column]
