in Europe, we get the aptly-named CNBC Europe. In addition to some of their US programs in whole or part (Squawk Box, Power Lunch, Street Signs and Market Wrap), they broadcast some some shows with fantastically original names (European Squawk Box, European Market Wrap), and coverage of the Asian markets at night.

The closest they get to entertainment during the week is NBC Nightly News, but at weekends we are treated to ancient re-runs of Leno and Conan O'Brian. Oh, and lots of golf or tennis.

Their free pens are nice.
