Some houses will have only the 7 free Portuguese TV-channels available, other will have a full subscription to a foreign TV-provider, usually through satellite or internet. Thus it is possible you have more channels available than at home. We know that you will want to watch your favorite programmes so we created a special field in the ads where home owners can list the channels they offer.


For EU-citizens: remember that alternatively you can use the TV-subscription that you have at home also in Portugal. Its probably just a matter of downloading the app of your TV-provider to your phone or tablet or PC, and you can watch in Portugal. Or straight on the website of the TV-provider. Obviously you need WiFi for this. It might be possible to connect your phone/tablet/pc to the TV in the house, that is a matter of connections. The same goes for wifi-receivers like google chromecast, extensions which can turn a regular TV in a "smart-TV", which allow you to use the TV-app without having your phone/tablet/pc in the middle. If in doubt, please contact the home owner.


Last but not least: remember that EU-citizens can use their internetcontract from home without any extra cost in Portugal. There may be a time-limitation to that so check with your provider but we have not heard of any complaints of winter guests yet....
