Y is for yes at ABC Wednesday today.
Yes started broadcasting in 2000, breaking the cable monopoly in Israel which had lasted more than a decade and ushering in digital broadcasting technology.
Yes is the sole satellite television provider (DBS) in Israel and has 570,000 subscribers (in a country whose population is just over 7 million).
The first two photos show the roof of St. Louis French Hospital, right next to Notre Dame de Jerusalem.
That is Vatican territory (see the flag?).
Sometimes I wonder if the devout Catholics there have a direct channel from Heaven, with all their satellite dishes. I hope the reception is good. :)
Some 65% of Israeli households own subscriptions to multi-channel cable television or satellite service providers.
The photo above shows one of many yes dishes in a Bedouin village in the Negev desert. Darajat village must have its water trucked in and they are not yet connected to the national electric grid. Which shows you that TVs can work even from generators.
You suppose they have a little television up there and watch cat cartoons?
My TV news comes only through the Internet, on my notebook computer. No television set for me.
