RTP Internacional is the flagship public television channel in Portugal. A general entertainment station that showcases a range of light programming, it is watched by more than 20 million Portuguese every day.
Without interruption for TV commercials, RTP Internacional broadcasts a wide variety of programmes throughout the week, Monday to Sunday. Above all a family TV channel, its schedules cater to all tastes with a roster of drama series, feature films, games shows and talk shows among others. And as you would expect with a general entertainment channel, it also covers news and sport with incisive daily bulletins.
Especially not to be missed is RTP Internacional’s live televising of Portuguese football fixtures. During prime time, the channel shows mainly movies and light entertainment, with reports and documentaries filling the later slots in the schedule throughout the week. The children’s schedules regularly offer cartoons and animated films, while “Zig Zag” caters to very young viewers with educational cartoons specially adapted to their age. On Sunday morning, the Holy Eucharist Mass is also broadcast for the whole family to watch together.
A bridge linking the Portuguese communities around the world, RTP Internacional can now reach viewers on a global scale. Accessible for free through the Hot Bird satellite network, this popular Portuguese television channel can be viewed through Europe, North Africa, Asia Minor, the Middle East and the entire Mediterranean.
