Want to watch some international TV over the Internet? Try MHz Worldview

Posted on May 22, 2015 | Post a comment | Bookmark and Share

Sometimes, on this ere blog, you might wonder to yourself, “How can I watch these marvellous international shows that Rob talks about?” Well, that would be telling, although depending on where you live, Netflix, Hulu and Amazon Prime are all possible options.

What I would suggest at this point, particularly if you’re in the US, is MHz. This is a "global media company which specializes in presenting top-quality international television programming to American audiences” and it does this through a number of means, including cable. However, there’s also a streaming video channel, MHz Worldview Live, which isn’t geo-restricted – you can watch it anywhere in the world.

Now, being a US channel, it operates a schedule geared to US time zones. However, if you’re prepared to stay up to the wee small hours, you can watch, for example:

  • Commissario Brunetti Mysteries: Oddly, an American author writing detective stories set in Venice but that have been adapted and made in German
  • Tatort: The world's longest-running German-language police procedural show, having first started in 1970! It’s filmed in Germany, Austria and Switzerland, with each country producing its own episodes with its own characters
  • The Eagle: A Danish TV show that’s a bit like Crossing Lines, with a crack Danish police squad solving crimes that cross borders into countries including Russia, Germany and Norway.

There’s also more familiar international imports Wallander, The Bridge, Salamander, Borgen, Unit One, Detective Montalbano, Crimes of Passion, Maigret, Spiral and Sebastian Bergman. Give it a try.
