Hi everyone.

Just a quick question for anyone living in Naples, and has Comcast: Can you get Italian TV channels with Comcast here? I had Comcast in NYC several years ago, but now that I moved to Naples I wanted to get the Italian channel RAI, but it seems they do not offer it. It does not make much sense to me, since I see many older generation Italians here, and it is a pretty popular one. The only international channel Comcast apparently offers is in German and Spanish.

I called the RAI network and several different people there told me that Comcast does offer it in SW Florida (with the channel numbers too), and that the Comcast people don't know what they are talking about - which unfortunately I have also experienced, no offense to anyone working for Comcast, though, I don't want to generalize.

Since the Comcast TV guide does not list anything, I guess they are not offered in Naples, which seems a pretty narrow choice of international programming - only 2 languages.

So, besides Dish Network, does anyone here have, or know how to get the italian TV channel RAI in Naples?

Thanks in advance!!

Older generation Italians in swFlorida? Really? I've never met any in the 10 years that I lived there. My husband's family lived there for 30 years and never met any, either. It's a shame, though. I'm from the northeast and you can't find nicer folks, but most of the international people that I met down there were from Germany and Great Britain. The US folks were from Michigan and Ohio.

I don't ever remember an Italian Channel. Maybe on the other coast, but not in Lee and Collier Counties. No.
