No need to buy a TV guide when you can find the information for free on the internet.

If you have the internet there’s no need to buy a TV guide or daily paper when all you want to know is what’s on TV and when.

But up until recently it has been difficult to find out what’s on in English. Digiturk has it’s own on screen guide but it’s slow and each item needs to be viewed to see what the name of the film or programme is in English. Digiturk also has its own internet TV guide here. But again you need to click on the Turkish name to bring up the details of the original English language title.

TodayZaman now produced a TV guide on-line in English for selected TV channels on DigiTurk. The guide can be found here and lists all the main film and general entertainment channels. The link takes you to the main TV guide page which lists the first channel in the line up, for example CNCB-E, IZ etc, but click on the [TV GUIDE] heading and the full day listing appears.

If you want to know what’s on Eurosport 1 & 2 you can view daily schedules on their website here but remember to add 1 hour to the times to allow for Turkey’s time zone.

On the sport theme FOX sport Turkey shows British football matches as well as providing othr sporting action from around the world. Their website here allows you to download the entire month’s schedule for Turkey making it easy to plan your viewing.

BBC Prime schedules can be found on their website here. Select your country and the schedules will show in the correct time zone.

Schedules for the Zone Reality channel for Turkey can be found at this link here.  Choose Turkey from the menu and you’ll see the schedules.

That’s about all we can find at the moment but you have any other links to channels we haven’t listed please let us know.
