Cable TV – the best way to watch live sports on TSN!

Wouldn’t you love to watch rising tennis stars, Alexander Zverev and Stefanos Tsitsipas or Coco Gauff and Sofia Kenin fight their way to another tennis final; goal scoring wizards – Lionel Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo or Harry Kane work their magic on the pitch or super experienced drivers, Lewis Hamilton or Valtteri Bottas scream around the track at terrifying speeds?

If you have the wherewithal to travel far and wide to see your favourite sport taking place in situ and are fortunate enough to be able to buy tickets, then watching all the action in a vibrant and bustling international venue can be the most exciting way to see a game or race. But most of us aren’t that lucky. So, if you are a sports aficionado and are passionate about watching your favourite sport live – whether it be football or rugby, golf or tennis or motor racing, the very best way to see it as it happens is on TV.

However, the last thing you want is to miss the crucial goal or the wining ace because there’s a glitch on the TV feed. Melita’s cable TV ensures that there will never be any lag or dropped frames, so you’ll be able to view all the action as it unfolds from the comfort of your own home. And although actually being at a football stadium, tennis venue or race track can be an exhilarating experience, watching sport on TV means you’ll never have to jostle for the best place to stand or worry about someone’s head popping into your sight line at the wrong moment. You’ll also be able to see every move and every turn from all the different camera angles, instead of just having one stationary view and be able to enjoy the replays of the most exciting moments. Something you could never do in real life.

And should you want to invite your friends over to watch, you can be the perfect host in familiar surroundings, providing your own snacks and drinks instead of having to pay the extortionate prices that some sporting venues charge. Or, you could even ask your mates to bring their own!


So, what games can you watch?

TSN (Total Sports Network) has eight brand new HD TV channels showing top international sports. For lovers of tennis – there’s the Wimbledon Championships, the BNP Paribas Fed Cup and Davis Cup; for rugby enthusiasts – RBS 6 Nations, AVIVA Championship Rugby, European Rugby Champions Cup and the European Rugby Challenge Cup; football fiends can watch all the local BOV Premier League games along with those of the FA Trophy, Premier League, La Liga, Bundesliga, UEFA Champions League, UEFA European League, the Emirates FA Cup, International Champions Cup and Serie A; and motor sport devotees can keep up with what’s happening in Formula 1 and MotoGP.

Feast your eyes on our amazing collection of top international sports, all in glorious high definition quality.


How do you find out what’s on Melita TSN Sports?

Just check the Melita Sports page on the Melita website and scroll down to where it says – ‘This Week on TSN’. Here it clearly shows who’s playing who, which match is on or which motor race is scheduled, on which TSN channel it is being shown and when. Couldn’t be easier.

If you are unable to decide what you want to watch, then Melita’s NexTV customers can watch two events simultaneously on one screen, using its Interactive NexTV box, which is available with a Melita Flexi Bundle. You then just use the NexTV split-screen feature and toggle between commentaries. Or for total sports fanatics, you can even watch all eight TSN channels at the same time across multiple devices!

Another great benefit of interactive TV is the NexTV Catch up function – should you miss a nail-biting move, or just want to watch it once more, all you have to do is rewind the game and see all the action again. And if you have to nip out – for a bathroom break or to replenish the refreshments, then just press the pause button and come back to exactly where you left off.

BEST OF ALL … TSN is completely legal, providing interruption free and top-notch HD quality, unlike some of the streaming channels, for which you may well to have to pay more than €5 a month and worse – frequently have to suffer a grainy, pixelated or jumpy screen. Melita’s Cable TV guarantees perfect viewing, every minute of every day.


What’s not to like? Especially when TSN is Europe’s best sports package, and costs only €5 a month.
