Re: Cricket on TV

Sky sports offers most of the matches. But you need to setup dish etc. There are numerous posts on it in the forum.

Not a lot of pubs/bars offers cricket. My favourite one is Oliver Twist http://www.pickwick.ch/

Re: Cricket on TV

There are other online options like www.cricinfo.com they sell important packages from time to time.

I usually wait for a few days and watch it on youtube . Most of the highlights show up there.

But the cheapest and convenient option is sky sports if you are able to install a dish in ur apartment.

Re: Cricket on TV

any english pubs in Zurich usually show th fooi and rugby... sure they show the cricket aswell. If your really that desperate you can get a train down to Zug and watch it in a pub there.

Re: Cricket on TV

I wouldn't worry too much - rain just stopped play.

It's funny. Coming to the end of the tour, all of the commentators have massive sun tans. Free-loaders!

Cricket World Cup 2007

How are people planning to watch this here? Is there a package I can order on the cable or will I have to watch it online?

Re: Cricket on TV

Fat chance unless you want to go to the horrible costs involved in getting Sky... but... remember... it is 'Illegal' to watch Sky outside of the UK.
What you can do though is get yourself a 'Free to air' reciever and dish and then you get all the UK terrestrial channels and provided one of them is showing the Cricket its totaly free and within the law. 'I was watching the highlights of the second England/Australia one day match last night, in bed. Heaven.

Re: Cricket on TV

it's not illegal, it's against terms and conditions (which are forced upon Sky by those making money selling programming to Sky).
