Mr. Renato said he does not like soap operas, but television news.
He said that he watches television all day because he is a merchant and, while waiting for customers to arrive, he watches several TV channels.
Mr. Renato watches Sky TV, and said that he is pleased with the channels that he accesses, especially with Globo News, for giving news 24 hours a day.
He said that he stopped using free terrestrial broadcasting services because of the technical problems he was facing because he had to constantly change the position antenna to improve transmission quality. “I had to jump like a cat on the roof,” he said, noting that this is not a problem for anyone with Sky.
Mr. Renato ruled out the possibility of living without television and radio, because he said that through these means he can access news from Brazil and the world. “Sincerely, television and radio, I think they are very important communication vehicles. They bring a lot of information and make people a little distracted too … Who does not have a television, nor a radio, is a totally uninformed person,” he ponders.
