1. You pay for 5,000 TV channels just so you can watch Globo all day.
Whether it’s for knowing who’s sleeping with whom on the hottest novella, catching the latest soccer game, or having Faustão on during Sunday lunch, Globo is essential for every Brazilian home. It’s not a popular channel for non-Brazilian households, therefore it requires the highest level of most cable subscriptions. You pay for the whole package even though we all know Globo will be on 90% of the time.
