We will be in Wengen when The Houston Rockets May be playing the US Badkeyball Championship game. I know the time difference will mean game will be on st 1am or 2am Swiss time. Is it possible Swiss TV would have sports station available? Or any other ideas how to watch. I know streaming via computer may be very expensive if possible at all. Our hotel is very accommodating if it is shown on Swiss TV they let us watch in lounge area.

Badkeyball is not that popular in Switzerland. 😎

Why not ask your hotel?

I know Badketball isn’t popular in Switzerland that’s why I knew it would be hard to find on TV even if one of our best players is from Switzerland. I did contact hotel.

Hi becmcentire,

I have not tried to watch American sports in Switzerland but I think it would be unlikely that they show the game (especially being on at that time locally) but perhaps you'll get lucky. Finding a TV to watch it at your hotel is a good first step - hope it works out!

I suspect you will be disappointed

Swiss accomodation tends to have Swiss TV and many channels directed to German satellites to satisfy the visitors from Germany.

I have never seen a British or US domestic sports match on TV when in Swizterland
