Default 6 nations on the web

As I am fully expecting Irl to win the 6 nations this year I believe it is of great importance I watch all games. There is a Fados down the road from us but I dont really want to stump up $20 for every game (for the initial games anyway), so i was wondering if anybody uses the internet to watch games. If so, can you recommend a link and cost per game ?. Also, assuming you have cable, is the quality pretty good ?

Thanks

I've always wondered how the **** that charge on the door for ppv games works - bloody joke.
Anytime I've watched ppv footie I've turned up at the boozer extremely early and they let me in for free.
Is it the setanta folks themselves on the door who collect the cash.

Unfortunately though Ireland will not win unless o'sullivan has a nasty accident and has to retire.

I've used pplive a bit for footie.
Its not bad is you watch it in small screen but the commentary is usually in chinesse and there's a good 5-6 minutes of buffering so if you're listening to a radio or watching text updates you know that a goal is about to happen.
Would be amazed if they carried the rugby as most of the channels they broadcast seem to be in the far east.

They're not going to carry any Blitish Rions games then?

I don't know, rugby seems to be getting pretty popular out there these days, so they might have it on somewhere, but time difference would be another pain in the arse...

I remember last year watching the Scotland v Italy game on the web. It was basically an Italian TV Channel streaming the BBC TV coverage with an Italian commentary. I'll dig around to see if I can find the link and post it.

Tony was right. You seem to prefer funny shaped balls of late...
And hey if you are going to come on here post something on the BFT !
