Well, there was a thread on where to watch it last year, perhaps some of the same places will be showing it again this year.

Re: Where to watch Super Bowl 2012?

Thank you Peg A. Zürich is a little too far from Geneva to make the trip for the game.
Would greatly appreciate any suggestions for Geneva.

Re: Where to watch Super Bowl 2012?

Are there any places online that will be streaming the game? I was thinking of reactivating my Cablecom Comfort package just because i wanted to see this game

Go Pats!

SPOILER ALERT

two teams of men dressed up like overstuffed jock straps assemble in the middle of a 100-yard long field.

They chase a piece of faux-immitation, inflated, pig skin called a "ball" back and forth in short bursts of a few seconds, piling on top of each other in sweaty frustration while making grunting noises. Each burst of energy moves the ball further towards one end of the field until eventually, maybe, one team makes a "touchdown" and does a jig to go with it.

Throughout the 5-6 hour long event, there will be several commercials, most of which will be boring, some of which will be unique, and will be available the next morning on YouTube.

At about 2.5 hours into the game will be a halftime show put on by some famous pop artists who may or may not be famale and who may or may not expose his or her nipple, which of course will be pixilated because the censors had no idea it was going to happen during a live performance.

The game will end, and one team will be the victor, patting each other on the ass in glory and dumping a vat of Gatoraide on their coach.

Meanwhile, you could save yourself 5-6 hours of your life and just read about it in a newspaper headline the next day to see who won and whether or not Madonna's breasts really did pop out during her Cirque du Soleil contortionist act.

With such enthusiasm for football (maybe all sports?) are you sure you are not French?

Re: Where to watch Super Bowl 2012?

It's not showing on their web page (just checked), but when I was wandering around downtown the other day, I noticed on the sign out front of Mr. Pickwick's that they're planning a special late night opening to show the Super Bowl here in Basel.

It appears that the nearest Mr. Pickwick's to Geneva would be the one in Bern, if it's worth the drive / trip for you, it may be worth your while to call and ask if they're planning to show it there as well.

Most of the places I've heard of showing it (either last year or this) are English or Irish style pubs, or American establishments. Maybe check in some of the larger "American" hotels (Mariott was mentioned in the thread from last year - maybe there is one in Geneva?) with bars to see if they may be staying open late to show it also.

NFL.com offers NFL GamePass. They were offering a reduced rate to watch the playoffs and the Super Bowl live online.

Every sport in the world you could say the same thing about, save the time and go read about it the next day

So what is your specific point here, don't watch live sports of any sort ?

You can also watch it on BBC One through Zattoo.com. That's how I'm planning to watch.

Re: Where to watch Super Bowl 2012?

Or you could watch it at home if you have Cablecom

SSF will be showing it. Not sure about the language but Swiss TV usually has the option of watching it in the original language

If you have Cablecom Comfort...you can watch it on not one but 2 ESPN channels, including ESPN HD


Why go to a Pub when you could enjoy it here. (at least when its -12 outside)
