Recently, my parents were applying for a free trial with Sky Cable in regards to this Digibox thing, and some extra channels of some sort. I’m really glad since applying for extra channels means I get some of the channels I have missed, and missed out on over the years. Arirang is back, which is a very good thing for me. I remember spending many of my late elementary to early high school days watching Arirang shows like Music Tank, or what was the name of that show, uhm it was a drama/humor series about a group of college students and their life in S. Korea. Also, I watched other shows like Pops in Seoul and got hooked to singers like Dana and 1TYM. Sometime in my HS years though, Sky decided to move it to their premium service. Boo. At least it’s back now.
Also new shows I can watch with the upgrade are CCTV9, Channel V and Fashion TV! Yey. Sadly, they don’t have those other CCTV channels that I’d really like to watch, and though this CCTV is CCTV International, I will just have to make do. At least it keeps me updated on things that are happening back in China. Back in China, in my dorm in Sun Yat-Sen University, practically all our channels on TV were CCTV so I sort of miss that atmosphere. Channel V is a lot more accessible to me now since it sort of combines Velvet and MTV together. Also, I am really loving Fashion TV. I do not have to stay up at night to catch the Fashion catwalk shows on Velvet/Lifestyle.
Sigh, I just wish that I could have that Taiwan Channel that I used to watch a lot back in China. At night, it would feature a lot of Taiwanese dramas that I grew to love and to get addicted to. Oh, forgot to mention, this new upgrade allows me to watch this channel called Boomerang which features a lot of old cartoons I used to watch when I was a kid, like the Flinstones, the Jetsons, Blue Falcon, etc. 🙂
A lot like reminiscing my childhood all over again.
