Joy of Joys, almost. The 6 nations in their entirety are available on France2, which is one of the channels available on Kabel Deutschland as part of their their basic digital package. This is a mere 3 euro a month extra if you already have analogue as part of your rent agreement. If you have SKY (DE) over cable (as many do to get the premiership and champions league football) you already have the box and smartcard needed so a phonecall with your bank details and you are all set. The only bummer is that its in French and not original BBC/ RTÉ commentary. Still, an enthuastic french commentator is better than a half arsed attempt by some DSF muppet that knows more about olympic handball than rugby. I have copied the info from the France2 website just to confirm that all games are available. http://sport.france2.fr/rugby/tournoi-six-nations/index-fr.php?page=guidetv
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?
