TV Royal December 2017 – Updated 8 December

Film & TV

All over the world tv-channels broadcast programmes about or even with nobles and royals. I will try to post a list here weekly, and update when I find something during the week. As it is impossible to check all channels I have listed the channels I have access to myself, and will include anything else I find online. Some channels might allow online Live TV access. Times are the local ones, thus Europe is CET, UK is GMT. Be aware there can always be last minute changes. If you have any additions, I would be very happy if you could react to this post and give the details.

Now with links, if I find them! I can’t be sure if you can see them all too, but hope they will be visible in other countries also.
