So at 9 o’clock this morning I was watching Good Morning America on MBC 4 when I started hearing a lot of shhh sounds–hmmm, so since I had already learned [here] and [here]that if someone uses a lot of shhh they are either speaking French or Farsi, I paid a little extra attention and lo and behold…it was Farsi!!!
So what was the dude doing speaking Farsi on MBC 4….well it was an announcement for a new MBC channel:MBC PERSIA
From what I gathered from the announcement they will probably show the same films as mbc 2 and mbc action but with Persian subtitles……Yipeeeeeeeeeeee…Persian subtitles…..ooohhhh I can’t wait….I LOVE reading subtitles…it’s like watching a whole different film…I’m not talking about the usual ‘wine’ becoming ‘juice’, no I’m talking about translations that change the whole story line….oooh can’t wait 😀
BTW u can join in the fun with this bit of info:
