Get the Dish "bouquet package". It has about 4 to 5 french channels. Forget Direct tv. It's a joke only for americans that only watch so called football (handball), kardashians, and don't know anything about the world.
I hate Direct TV. The world cup coverage was late.
Poor Football coverage (soccer)
Poor Tennis coverage
Poor International channels
NO FRENCH channels.
Poor international news/ only bias news
= Deal breaker for me.
"WilsonC " You are 100% right about what you said. Only arrogant uneducated, non cultured americans that i've met complains about french being mean. Before I came to america, I learned as much english before I came and learned a lot about the culture and tried to speak english to every american I met. I didn't come here expect Americans to speak French to me in their country. Therefore, why do americans go to France and expect to be served and spoken to in English? Just like americans and Patriotic and nationalist , we french are proud too of our language and culture.
All the americans I've met that are respectful of others cultures, all tell me they had a great time in Paris.
Funny thing, In France you can find every tv channel giving american news and music videos!!! But in america you never find that in american tv.
I wonder who hates who.
I came to the states and toured all 50 states, americans go to France and visit just Paris and generalized the whole country.
In conclusion, Don't get Direct TV if you want your kids to be cultured and watch french/ swiss and learn about the world. Plus it's more expensive than Dish and other...
