Rugby World Cup 2007 [in general]
 
Hi everyone

Can someone tell me how to watch the RWC in Switzerland ? I have tried to Email them directly but without getting any response. I am also willing to buy / pay to have this possibility. I assume that there will be no or only a couple of matches aired in Switzerland. I cant speak French so it will have to be in English.

Would be great if someone can point me in the right direction.

Thank you in advance

France 2/3 will show it all. Italian channels will likely show it all.

The picture will be the same no matter what the language is ;)

The only Italian channel that shows rugby is the terrestrial (free) La 7. During the 6N they show all matches live and, this year, they even put up maxi-screens in the Piazza del Populo in Rome and Piazza del Duomo in Milan so that those without tickets (and there were thousands of those) could watch.

I don't yet know what their WC output will be, but at the last WC they showed all Italian matches, a couple of quarters, a semi and the Final live. Mind you, they were taking a massive punt, but their viewing figures were massive so they decided to go ahead with full coverage of the 6N.

Commentary will only be in Italian, so if you elect to go this route, turn down the TV volume and try to pick up a suitable radio channel.

Six glorious weeks of rugby. Bring it on.

The logistics of an Englishforum sweepstake are a bit beyond me, but if anyone can figure out how to do it, count me in.

Does anyone think that The Lion Bar will play the Rugby on Saturday? I had a look at their web site and they have not updated their TV Screening Programme.

Yeh, he also had a swipe at London getting the Olympics.

I watched it on ITV1, thankfully, as hearing the French commentators calling their national team is unbearable.:)

I did too, but Johnson & Greenwood in the pre-match were woeful. The amount of Frog bashing was embarassing & tended towards sour grapes.

Can only be grateful for small mercies, Brian Moore doesn't commentate for ITV .... now that would have got me in to FR2 ... ;)

Well, france got a humping and it looks awfully like NZ are racking up a cricket score against Italy. Anyone else watching?

No watching the Cricket, all going well so far, then the footy and Rugby

All Blacks is becoming a little monotonous (for us non-Kiwis) off to the park for a kickaround ....
