Rai 1 announced yesterday (October 28th, 2016) that it will be possible to watch Medici Masters of Florence in English, which is the original language of the TV show, on his online platform Raiplay.
After many requests by viewers, Rai finally decided to give everybody the chance to see the series in original language. This was possible already by choosing the language option, but only during the live show, and only with a terrestrial or satellite decoder. By allowing people to see the episodes in English on his website, basically Rai extended his potential public worldwide.
Rai releasing Medici Masters of Florence in English
The release of episodes in English, apparently, had some technical issue, because they were available yesterday for a short time, then disappeared and no news have been released since. Hopefully, this is just a technical issue (and not a copyright issue) that will be solved soon. I think the release created a problem with traffic on the website.
For Rai Tv, this is the first experiment of this kind: the Raiplay platform already offers people to watch TV programs online, even after some days, but it had never happened that they were offered in original language.
Even the Italian fans commented “about time”, when the news were announced on the official Facebook page dedicated to the series. In general, comments are enthusiast.
