Only if you are hanging out in the Captain's cabin after he has given the OOW strict instructions on the course to steer
For other times and everyone else live TV occasionally can be hit and miss depending on what satellites our receivers can see. For the most part people have 22inch flat screens in their cabins and yes a lot of football, rugby, cricket etc gets watched on them, the British Forces Broadcasting Service TV channels show most matches. The bars have bigger TVs in them.
need to become pals with the captain then hahaha, im not holding my breath for seeing much football especially being both a celtic fan and Scottish hahaha I'm just hoping for the odd episode of coronation street then it really be like home haha
