ESPN International, MSNBC News, Fox News, BBC News. This is the only regular network programming.

Most, not all, Princess ships have movies and other programs on demand at no charge. Some of the older ships may not have converted to on demand yet. Those that do not have on demand have channels with movies, classic and newer tv programs.

The Pacific is one of the ships that doesn't have the on demand system.:classic_sad:

The On Demand selection is very good. The movies include family, action, romance, and lots of Marvel type- these will be available the first day. As movies are shown at MUTS they are added to the selection- a feature we like because DH has trouble hearing the outdoor movies.

You can always watch reruns of "The Love Boat". 

How much better can it get?

They used to have every episode on demand. Last year there was a limited selection. Bummer. Who doesn’t love Charo and Sandy Duncan?

As we have not seen that for quite a long time, and will be on our first Princess cruise in May, this might be fun for a few episodes. Can anyone tell me if Emerald has on demand?

I was quarantined a couple of days last month on the Caribbean Princess. I was glad to have the on-demand movies. I just wish they did not wait until a movie was shown on MUTS before releasing it on demand.

When I was on Sky Princess back in December, I noticed that they had dropped ESPN and replaced it with another sports channel.  Cannot remember the name.  Showed NFL games on TV and Movie Under the Stars(MUTS).

honestly, i find the tv selections disappointing.  while there is a fair amount of choice shows, there is only 1-2 episodes of each.  the movies are a good selection, some really recent popular movies, and a nice sprinkling of foreign/art house flicks as well.

 

my real complaint is lg tvs have some sort of motion smoothing that drives me insane because it makes everything look like an 80's soap opera. 

 

i can't remember if they also have access to the sleep timer function.  my last vacation either the cruise or the hotel had the sleep timer function, and i can't remember which one did.

 

i seriously do not understand why hotels/ships block the sleep timer function of tv's, falling asleep to tv is a very common thing.  i'm firmly team fall asleep to tv.

 

that said, i have always found something to watch on princess. i'm just curious why airplanes have better tv than cruise ships.  i feel like the technology is there for better tv options.
