People are attached to their favorite TV shows. They offer a familiarity and comfort that is difficult to leave behind when you move to another country.
But don’t worry. Even if you move thousands of miles away from your home to Portugal, you can still keep up with your favorite TV shows. It may not always be as simple as clicking on an app on your TV, tablet, or phone. But where there’s a will, there’s a way.
Streaming in Portugal
First of all, it should be noted that streaming TV shows, movies, music, games, and other entertainment options in Portugal is just as simple as it is where you live now. Portugal has one of the best technological infrastructures in all of Europe so streaming is fast, broadband is wide, and original content is abundant.
You will also find many of your favorite apps available in Portugal, including MAX, Paramont+, Netflix, and many others. And while their offerings are aimed at a Portuguese audience, you can still find most of your old favorites in English. Plus, there’s a whole new world of Portuguese TV shows and movies to discover.
And if there are specialized apps that aren’t currently available in Portugal, you can always download a VPN and fool the provider into thinking you are still living in your home country so you can stream the same way you always have.
At BRINT Portugal, our aim is to make your transition into your new life in Portugal as easy and comfortable as possible. Sometimes that means helping you with your immigration application and other times it means making sure you never miss an episode of “Big Brother”. (By the way, Europe has its own “Big Brother” and it’s just as juicy, if not more so, than the US version).
So don’t worry about missing your favorite shows when you move here. They’re available along with lots of other new and exciting programming you will love just as much!
