Don't have cable tv showing U.S. channels? The BEST place I've found so far is:
Want to find out what shows are on your tv, when it is on and what channel for those of you living in Costa RIca?
First go to
Then click on to whatever area/provider you have.
When you click there, you can create Favorite Channels by going to the red button marked Set Custom View (I found it best to make a list of the channels and call letters I liked before doing this).
This will show you the Costa Rica channels.
Since the major network channels (ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN, Fox News) come from a DIFFERENT U.S. city, Go to Edit Location, then to the city your network feed comes from (Tigo is Miami, Florida) and then they asked for a zip code in that city (if you don't know any zip codes in Miami - just google - zip code miami and it will give you some options).
I was able to create a Favorite Channels in that area also. Keep in mind when there is no Daylight Savings TIme in the States, all shows are ONE/1 hour BEHIND Eastern Time, so when the U.S. is IN Daylight Savings Time - we are 2 hours BEHIND Miami.
Do not have internet access easily? La Nacion newspaper's Sunday issue has a television guide in it.
Many thanks for the information. It was good for a student like me also doing a part time job , to have such a guide. I can now keep track of my favourite programmes and not only this the site has daily soaps updates for all those who miss some of their favourites by any chance.
Also for those who are intersted in movies , you can directly have your listings for the day at http://www.tvguide.com/movies-tv
I think all those who live in costa rica must have a look at this.
Oh my! Your blog must be a treasure for those who are wanting to visit/stay in Costa Rica like me! I've been needing a break and want to vacation in CR, I googled it and came upon this site= http://www.CostaRicaHQ. I wanna ask if this really happens. If that is the case then it would make my vacation a lot easier! Thanks again! Great tips! :)
Even though I want to make a getaway to Costa Rica to escape distractions like TV, I must confess that every now and then it's nice to see what's on :)
We have some friends who stayed at this place called Maquenqe . They might have satellite, but I don't know.
We're thinking of heading down there soon too, with our dogs.
I've visited many Costa Rica sites, such as Costa Rica HQ. Yours has some very practical and useful information on it.
Thank you for the great info, I will bookmark this site for future reference.
Thank you for timely info. Marsa's comment helped me search about Mequengue in CostaRicaHQ.org. It is atrue paradise on earth.
Great insight and having browsed your site along with CostaRicaHQ,org it is a really great place to visit for a vacation trip nature at its best with great hospitality.
