CFC Vancouver now has access to live games on Setanta.
As you know, Setanta have a lot of Chelsea games this season. Apparently they have first choice of games in North America, so not surprising that they choose Chelsea so often. The downside is that we do not get those games live on cable TV.
The solution? We have bought a Setanta decoder box and we will have live Setanta games at Harvey's house in North Vancouver. We will do it on a donation basis of say $3 to $5 per person per game.
Our first game was the Everton away game. It worked well. The feed is streaming video broadband Internet. The picture quality is acceptable, but not great. No doubt it will get better in time.
If you want a decoder box at home then click on the Setanta side bar for details.
Also, the Frog and Firkin on West Broadway has promised that they will show every Chelsea game that is on Setanta as long as the pub is open. Unfortunately that rules out early morning games but they will repeat them later in the day. Not perfect, but better than not seeing the game.
The Reading Boxing Day game is only on Setanta tape delay at 3:30 p.m. The Frog and Firkin will have the game.
