6 Nations coverage?
 
Are OSN screening the 6 nations and, if so, what channel or channels will it be shown on?

I searched on their website but couldn't see anything. Maybe I searched for the wrong keyword but only IRB Rugby 7s and something else showed up but not 6 Nations...

Pretty handy website!! Doesn't seem to list 6 Nations games as showing on OSN but OSN is mentioned for other stuff. Does it look accurate to you?

Checking again........... you're right.

Call Maricel Uson at OSN on 056 135 7773 to ask her. She's very helpful....... in all sorts of ways...........

Funnily enough, she is the Filipino girl that signed me up for OSN!! I think she was in Dubai Mall advertising it at the time....

There was a thread about this topic last month. I believe the consensus was that OSN are NOT covering the matches but it might be aired on Al Jazeerah Sports, but not sure exactly where.

It's on Al Jazeera Sports 3. If you have evision (assume du are the same) it's 23dhs extra per month to add all the Al Jazeera sports channels - just ring them up and it's done 24 hours later (insh'allah...)

Just spoke to Maricel Uson and she informs me that I need an extra card to watch Al Jazeera Sports on OSN, she is going to try and source me one :unsure:

She offered me that too. She said it was simple enough.

Maybe it has changed, but last year I rang up and they activated Al Jazeera sport in a couple of hours.

The coverage is far better than ShowSports, they had Richard Hill in studio at half time rather than the monotonous Toshiba adverts looping.

Deano, did Maricel get back to you? I called her earlier but no answer and didn't ring back. Will try her again tomorrow but just wondered if she had "sorted you out" yet?
