Anyone Watch The Israeli Network? Opinions?
Hey everyone, I found this forum recently and thought it would be a good place to ask a question: Has anyone tried out The Israeli Network (http://www.tin.tv), which is a cable/satellite package that shows Israeli TV throughout the world? I'm thinking of buying it, but I'd be curious to get any feedback first... it's something like $20 or more a month!
I think they have a large number of subscribers, so if anyone here has used it, I'd be curious to hear your thoughts:
1. Are the Israeli shows broadcasted any good?
2. Is the signal and transmission quality good?
3. Is it worth the money?
4. I heard that they translate everything with English subtitles -- do people find it's a good way to help learn Hebrew?
5. Is there good religious content? Of course, they show secular, entertainment programming (with women who are not tziunit), but they also have a few shows like "Welcoming the Shabbat." Do you consider it OK to watch?
I live in Jerusalem, but I'm asking more for my friends and family outside of Israel -- they hear about the shows I sometimes see, and they are interested in seeing them too. Any thoughts on this service would be appreciated! I don't know anyone in America or Europe who uses The Israeli Network, so I thought people here might... Thanks for any insights!
