Overseas Dees - How are you watching the finals?


deanox

Recommended Posts

For our overseas supporters or those travelling, how do you plan on watching the final?

This thread can be a place to post looking for others to watch the game with, no matter where in the world you are!

 

To kick it off I'll be in Berlin for work, with a conveniently scheduled late flight, meaning I'll be free to watch the game during the day (1250pm local time).

Will any locally based supporters be meeting anywhere to watch it together? Or does anyone know any Berlin AFL haunts that show games so I'm not watching on my laptop in the hotel lobby?

I’ll still be in Europe as well, but I believe the game starts at 11.50am local/Euro time, not 12.50pm - wouldn’t want you to miss the first half!

You could try a regular Aussie hangout Belushi's on Rosa Luxemburg Strabe, but there's no guarantee they'll have the game on. You could ring beforehand. 

Otherwise there are a heap of illegal streams that are very reliable. Send me a message and I can provide the best ones...

San Francisco Bay Area over here. 

I'll watch it on the WatchAFL app and cast it to my TV - night games on the Australian East Coast mean 02:00 start times in California

Like @Hatchman, I use the Watch AFL app.  Specifically the version available on an Apple TV.  Works very well. 

You receive a subscription with the international MFC membership, which is about the same price as a yearly subscription with watchafl.com.  But you get to support the club for the same price (I assume they get a discount on the subscription price).  You can also buy short-term weekly and final series packages subscriptions on the watchafl website.

We had a thread on this late last year if you're looking for more info: 

P.S. I'll be watching from Nairobi on the odd chance there are any Dees fans here. We usually host a small GF party but currently only know of Hawks and North supporters.

Absolutely correct sorry. I'm currently in Parnu, Estonia, and forgot I'm an hour behind!

Am in Helsinki for 1st Final, fast streaming net and mad sports friends, Sudan for the Grand Final sadly, will use a diplomat mates house for the fast net there.

Watch AFL is ok, sometime the sound doesn’t run the same as the picture which can be frustrating.

I watched Collingwood in Lagos (Portugal), Carlton in Agadir (Morocco) until I literally had to leave four minutes before the end to get a 1pm pre-arranged taxi to the airport (where I was reconciling myself with a loss) and Brisbane in London, all through the Watch AFL app. Fortunately (from a watching perspective, not a lifestyle one), I’ll be back in Melbourne for the Sydney final.

For those of us in the UK it's either Watch AFL or the BT sports channel. There will be plenty of pubs in the cities who will screen it for the games that are on during opening hours. Early kick offs Australian time will be problematic.

I live in the countryside so I'll be watching from behind the sofa at home until we get ten goals in front.

If you are in Thailand, ABC Overseas show all AFL games on FTA if your lodgings can pick up that channel.

If in Pattaya, go to Tree Town area and Danny's Sports Bar. Plenty of big screens with cold beer and Danny is a good bloke.

I’ll be in Bali and will miss the game live ( by a day) and yes, thank goodness for the ABC coverage

Watching from the Japans using the WatchAFL app. I hook the PC up to the telly and it's no different from back in Oz.

I'd get Kayo but the app can detect VPNs apparently. Any Kayo users on here based OS? I'd also like to watch the NRL finals too.

I'm in Berlin too. I use the watchafl app (I share the costs with a pal in London and never been a problem watching concurrently).

Would be up for a meetup though, let us know if something pans out.

I'll be watching, like I always do, with my father in Hamburg on the watchafl.com website cast onto the Tv from my Laptop. Watched the grand final with one of my German mates last year and he loved it!

    GAMEDAY: Rd 11 vs St. Kilda

    It's Game Day and after 2 losses on the trot the Dees must win against the Saints today at the MCG to keep in touch with the Top 4. A loss today will see them drop out of the Top 8 for the first time since 2020.

    HEAVEN OR HELL by The Oracle

    Clashes between Melbourne and St Kilda are often described as battles between the forces of heaven and hell. However, based on recent performances, it’s hard to get excited about the forthcoming match between these two sides. It would be fair to say that, at the moment, both of these teams are in the doldrums. The Demons have become the competition’s slow starters while the Saints are not only slow to begin, they’re not doing much of a job finishing off their games either. About the only th

    THE BLOW by Whispering Jack

    Narrm’s finals prospects took a crushing blow after the team’s insipid performance at Optus Stadium against a confident Waaljit Marawar in the first of its Doug Nicholls Round outings for 2024.  I use the description “crushing blow” advisedly because, although the season is not yet at it’s halfway mark, the Demons have now failed abysmally in two of their games against teams currently occupying bottom eight places on the ladder.  The manner in which these losing games were played out w

    HALF FULL by KC from Casey

    It was a case of the Casey Demons going into a game with a glass half full in their match up against the Brisbane Lions at Casey Fields on Saturday. As the list of injured and unavailable AFL and VFL listed players continues to grow and with Melbourne taking all three emergencies to Perth for the weekend on a “just in case” basis, its little brother was always destined to struggle. Casey was left with only eight AFL listed players from who to select their team but only two - an out-of-form

    POSTGAME: Rd 10 vs West Coast

    Many warned that this was a danger game and the Demons were totally outclassed all game by a young Eagles team at Optus Stadium in Perth as they were defeated by 35 points.

    GAMEDAY: Rd 10 vs West Coast

    It's Game Day and the Demons have returned to the site of their drought breaking Premiership to take on the West Coast Eagles in what could very well be a danger game for Narrm at Optus Stadium. A win and a percentage boost will keep the Dees in top four contention whilst a loss will cast doubt on the Dees flag credentials and bring them back to the pack fighting for a spot in the 8 as we fast approach the halfway point of the season.
