    Has anyone compiled a list of foreign channels that show football matches? I'm currently in Spain without access to UK TV programmes and was wondering if anyone had such a list, or links to sites on the internet that would provide this information. During the World Cup I found a couple of German channels that were not listed as sports channels but aired the games, and since then Champions League games. My system apparently won't work with a Sky box because I have internet connectivity through it, not that I have Sky anyway. I'm not a footy nut but it would be handy to have in case I run out of wool while knitting a jumper :)

    If you can stand the German commentary DSF on Astra1 shows some football, not sure which games as I'm more into Motogp which DSF shows live. Came in handy on a recent trip to France

    Thanks for the replies, I can pick up the Canal+ channels but they are showing as a scrambled signal. I can't see DSF on Astra 1 but it might be called something different on the listings the satbox is giving me. I watched the footy on Das Erste and also ZDF during the World Cup, and a Champions League game the other week though it was a German team that was playing.
