The quarantine has indeed left us with something special—a time to pause and be grateful for what we have, and reflect on what we plan to do to make the most of our precious time.
Many may be back to business now but the risks and dangers of COVID-19 are far from over. At the end of the day, we still need to do our part and help flatten the curve, staying home and protecting our loved ones. Metro Channel is giving you a chance to turn your idle moments at home into something productive and use this time to be inspired to try something new!
Metro Channel has continued delivering top quality shows during the lockdown, hoping to inspire hope and boost morale while we are alone, together. For the month of June, we’ve got four new shows that spark creativity and give fresh ideas on how to spend your time sheltering in place. Whether it’s a whipping up new dish or dessert, discovering an interesting liquor to try, or some decorating and refurbishing tips to spruce up your favorite space, we've got just the show for you!
Tune in to Metro Channel every day and catch these foreign lifestyle shows on channel 52 on Sky Cable and channel 174 on HD.
Giada at Home Season 5
Regular schedule: Mondays to Fridays, 6:00 p.m.
Since we can’t host huge parties just yet because of the continuing threat of the pandemic, why not make a sumptuous spread for the family instead? Giada De Laurentiis may be known for her usual classic Italian dishes, but in this continuing season of Giada at Home, she explores more recipes and cuisines to create themed feasts for the family. Look forward to easy but memorable chicken recipes, sports bar favorites, cheesy comfort food, heirloom recipes from her grandfather, a Mexican fiesta, a Father’s Day menu, and so much more!

Have you ever imagined yourself living somewhere hidden and serene, away from the crazy city life? Tiny Paradise seeks to turn that dream into reality: smaller houses built to suit a simpler lifestyle and create a smaller environmental footprint without scrimping on the beauty that paradise truly brings—the views, the surrounding nature, and a slice of the peaceful life. From a young couple who migrates to a cabin in the woods and a shepherd's wagon turned into a tiny house, to a Bohemian-chic home in the rugged Texas countryside and an eco-village in the middle of a desert, you won't run out of home and living inspo from this new Metro Channel gem!

There’s a lot of things one can learn from tasting a country’s cuisine, but there’s just as much to discover from a country’s booze and alcohol culture. Jack Maxwell learned a lot from his years working in the bars of South Boston and he’s set to discover a lot more—immersing himself in local bars, festivals, and alcohol-making traditions in different cities around the world for Booze Traveler. For Season 3, he visits Sicily, Hungary, Tanzania, Scotland, New Zealand, Argentina, Guatemala, Hong Kong, Brazil, India and more, diving right into the different cultures and relationships that the people have built around liquor.
