Where to watch the Ashes Series in Zurich?

I'm assuming Paddy Reilly's will be showing the cricket ???

Any other bars that people know will have it on?

BBC i Player is your best bet, but you need a UK proxy to get around the fact that you are out of the UK, which may not please your IT department.


The ECB are streaming video on subscription - That is working fine here, according to other forum members, so you may just have to just close the window and listen to the commentary.

i bet in the Oliver Twist Pub in the niederdorf. I know that it will be shown in the Mr. Pickwick in Zug, and as they belong to the same company, i assume they'll show it too.

Re: The Ashes Thread

A bit late as I didn't spot this thread quicker. Holding hands up to total plagerism:

Just had to call the RSPCA and report a Swann on fire in Cardiff.

Cricket : The Ashes - Lausanne

Hello,

I have a husband who wants to watch the Ashes in Lausanne; does anyone know of any pubs/bars which may have a Sky sports screen tuned in?

Best regards,

Pelly

best bet is The Great Escape, then maybe Captain Cook, or the White Horse in Ouchy perhaps.
