Serotek has an app called iBlink radio and in this app there is community radio and under this there is a option called blind tv.
Blindy tv takes the visionn out of television.
In other words it provides descriptive audio during the tv show.

Hi Isaac,

Thank you for posting this wonderful and informative comment to the AppleVis forum!
I would like to ask you a question. Could you give me some tips for playing Stem Stumper in the Feeding Frenzy garden on level 5, please?
Take care,

Blindy tv is dead, so unless you want to find audio described shows, it will depend on your cable provider. It sounds like you're from another country. Maybe someone else can give you more.

Hello Andre,
As others have said, it very much depends in what country you live as most TV apps will not work outside the country they are broardcast from.
In the UK, we have several TV type apps. For example, bbc news provides a text-based news service but also has a live feed to bbc news, TV Catch up provides around thirty channels as a live feed from all the BBC channels and a range of other channels we can only find on free satellite, the bbc I Player app provides all the bbc TV live programmes plus past programmes that you can download while the Sky app provides subscribers to Sky with all the content they subscribe to including movies, sport, entertainment, news, children's etc.
However, I guess you will need to see what Portugal offers in terms of similar services from their national TV station or commercial type broardcasters.
