Does anyone know what novelas are most popular in Brazil right now? Does anyone stream Brazilian TV from the US? Unfortunately I've found that streaming from other countries sometimes doesn't work because they don't have the right to license.

I'd love to also be able to watch some older novelas that are already finished (like Amor e Intrigas). There used to be a place in Manhattan where you could buy these type of series, but it's gone now. I wonder if anyone knows where I may be able to get this or other classic Brazilian novelas in the US?

Comcast has a Brazillian channel that you have to pay for. Something like 20 bucks a month or so.

Thank you for the response. I had seen something on dishnetwork too - about $20 for rede globo and some other packages as well. It seems high for one channel. I found that some novelas are available on Youtube (it's a pain but it's free) - I've been watching Vale Tudo recently - it's from the 80s! In Brazil you can buy them online, bootleg I'm sure. Like I said in my other post, there used to be a place in Manhattan that sold Brazilian content, also bootleg most likely. I'm sure someone is still selling somewhere in NY, but not as obvious.

Search them online. You can find them on other sites, too, not only youtube. There are sites where you can watch them directly, without downloading; just choose a novela and google it, you might very well find it

Rede Globo has always three "novelas" being aired during weekdays.


Right now, the three novelas on Rede Globo are:

- Lado a Lado ("novela das seis")

- Guerra dos Sexo ("novela das sete")

- Salve Jorge ("novela das oito", or "novela das nove" as they are calling it now)


"Lado a Lado" is very good. It tells the story of the city of Rio de Janeiro about 100 years ago, in the beginning of the 20th century.
