...so you need Al Jazeera Sports channel 1+ and 2+, not the normal ones you get on showtime, thats RUBBISH, so I can't see any football at home at all, unless I subscribe to A J S and I have to sign up for a year.

Not happy about that at all.

Just got in to watch the second half - not a bad game actually, quite entertaining, fairly open football. Portugal deserve the win though I think.

We survived for eight good years in Saudi Arabia on Supersport TV with Gary Bailey (the ex.Manure goalie)...its a South African sports channel showing most Premier League and international games. They use it all the time at Dubliners at Le Meridien.

Be careful - strictly it's illegal out here (as local networks haven't paid the licensing fees apparently), but a blind eye is often turned....

Downtown bars like Good Fellas and Waxy's have it - a quiet word in the manager's ear and he will put you in touch with someone... etc... etc...

On the other hand just talk to one of the satellite installation guys..... they can usually get you the appropriate 'smart card'..... for a small consideration....

ring showtime and ask them for the number for ART - you will get sky news and AJ tv through them, it costs practically nothing.

I know this sounds stupid, but I just can't find a website or contact number for them anywhere.

Anyone help?

Ive got the dish and box for DSTV which we dont use any more - the subscription is expensive though - more so than top showtime package and it might be a problem in Mirdiff with interference from aircraft. Ours used to crackle if an aircraft flew over. I do have a contact number and name though that I can PM if you want

Oh and you need to pay either 6 months or a year in advance
