ATT'N: Setanta NA subscribers (re: NZ vs. OZ in HK)
Listen up North American Setanta subscribers, this blows chunks.
No historic All Blacks vs. Wallabies Bledisloe Cup test match action from Hong Kong for you!
A Setanta rep for USA & Canada just replied to me, quote, "Unfortunately, we aren't showing the NZ vs Aus match this weekend. The Bledisloe Cup was recently separated from the Tri-Nations competition, and we weren't able to budget in the extra match."
Solution: GO TO MEDIAZONE RUGBY CHANNEL. But don't be a slow poke -- if you haven't registered an account with them, that'll take maybe 10 minutes. Mediazone'll broadcast the game live onto your computer monitor, and the match will be available therafter for download. Cost is USD$9.99.
Haka and kick-off starts 3:30 AM Eastern Time (ET - ie. New York, Toronto), November 1st (ie. early Saturday morning ET), 2008.
