to my surprise I have just discovered that aussie rules is now covered live on eurosport 2!
(for example next Saturday morning is Collingwood Melbourne FC - North Melbourne Kangaroos)
And they have extensive highlights programmes during the week.
I was also able to watch all 6 nations international rugby and both Heineken Cup (European club Rugby) semi finals on France2 which KabelDeutschland has on their bog standard 4 euro a month Kabel digital package (without which you cant even watch rtl or pro 7 in digital).
Eurosport 2 also has the 20-20 Cricket world cup starting this week aparantly.
Sport 1 (formerly dsf) sometimes shows the odd English FA Cup or League cup game live.
What other sporting events of interest to ex pats are shown on german TV, or on channels on German Cable networks, that people might not be aware of?
