Hi all,

I'm considering taking out a subscription to Al Jazeera sports - the cost of the viewing card (£80 t0 £150 depending on package) seems very attractive compared to a 12 month Sky Sports subscription, particularly if like me you only have time to watch one or two games a week.


Two questions to those who already subscribe:


1) Do they *every single* Champions League match? Eg, on a Tuesday night can I select from all 8 matches or is the selection more limited?

2) I'm a fan of EuroLeague basketball and am frustrated at the limited coverage I get back from my ESPN subscription (only one game a week, usually not live!). Does anyone know how many EuroLeague games Al Jazeera show a week?


Answers to the above gratefully received.

They definately show every single Champions League game but not sure on basketball. They show NBA but that isn't what you're looking for.

Yes all champions league games are shown as they have 10 channels, plus Europa league, fa cup, league cup, some championship games and all the major leagues around Europe.

Not sure on basketball, see if sky italia show it seen some cards for sky sport and espn America on eBay.

That, Sir, is good enough for me! Thanks for the reply.
