NFL in Zurich

I have searched long and hard on EF and I have not yet been able to find a location in Zurich that plays NFL games live. I know on a Sunday evening i may be a little bit more to ask of bar/restaurant owners however on this lovely day of thanks I was wondering if anyone knew if there was somewhere to watch the Thanksgiving day line up of games. Games start at 6:30 CET so I can definitely catch the first game (a real classic DET-GB). Hope someone can help me out. Feel free if anyone wants to join me, I am sure that I am not the only American Football lover out there.

Cheers
Landon

Re: NFL in Zurich

If you (or someone you know) has the cablecom sports package, ESPN american almost always has the games on Sat and Sundays and today is no exception: http://www.cablecom.tvtv.ch/tvtv/ind...s_chn=&lang=de

Re: NFL in Zurich

Hooters plays the first game on Sundays. Not sure if they are open on Thanksgiving. Enjoy.

Re: NFL in Zurich

In Paddy Reilly's we always show the NHL on a Sunday evening - The first game in it's entirety and the second until we close the doors around Midnight (You'll normally get 3 Quarters as kick off is 22.15) We can also normally choose from 4/5 different games.

We can have it on almost any screen, with the commentary being on in the Non smoking room as you walk in on the right. We don't have commentary on in the main area, as due to the amount of sport we have on during the week, sometimes the pub just has to be a pub without sports commentary blaring out!

I'm assuming that you mean the NFL, the NHL is quite different.

Re: NFL in Zurich

Sorry CHRISW, of course I meant NFL! It's because I'm a huge hockey fan, and as soon I hit a capital N, HL automatically follows - seriously!

NFL NFL NFL NFL NFL NFL, I'm trying!!!

Re: NFL in Zurich

Do you guys at Hooters plan on featuring any of the College Bowl games this year?

Re: Any place to watch NFL in Zurich

Check out the college football thread elsewhere on EF.

In the meantime:

http://www.espnamerica.com/

If you're a Cablecom customer:

http://www.cablecom.ch/en/b2c/tv/sen...t&regionstyp=2

The "Comfort" option gives you ESPN America that gives you about 3 College Football games Saturday and usually a triple header Sundays too plus Monday Night (read Tuesday morning here).

This Sunday's screened NFL games BTW (9-12-10):

Bengals @ Patriots, Packers @ Steelers and the 2:00am game is the Cowboys @ Redskins.

Hope the Giants do good for you this season bud. I'm following the Colts this season.

Re: Any place to watch NFL in Zurich

Sometimes the Pickwick pubs will play NFL football.

If there is a soccer match, it will take priority over American football.

Ahh! I remember trying to pick up the American game at the world cup the same time England was playing! Now that was tough. Luckily at Nelsons' there was a tiny little tv up in the corner with the US game on... I wonder if there would be much money in opening an "American" sports bar here!!

That can't be right? Justice? Apple pie, fall is football time, soccer people had their fest in the summer.

Re: Any place to watch NFL in Zurich

You can get "Game Pass" from www.nfl.com/gamepass. For $280, you can get access to nfl network and any game in HD via online streaming. You can also watch archived games, so if you don't feel like staying up until 6am, you can watch it the next day.

I was just told by Hooters that they play NFL games on Sunday nights upon request.

Re: NFL in Zurich

Dear Big Mac #24,
My Husband wonders where you get the games at Paddy OReily's; Is the feed from the UK Sky TV, or from the US?
Will you be playing the games on Thanksgiving (25 November)?
Thanks!

Re: NFL in Zurich

Pickwick pubs show a lot of NFL games...

If there is a good soccer( football ) game, the NFL could be overruled.
