Best way to follow Serie A in Canada?

Anybody know what's the best way to follow Serie A games in Canada? I live in Ontario and I am struggling to watch most of the games on TV. Last year I subscribed to Seriea.tv and watched most of the games online, except the Sunday game night on TLN. To be honest, although watching games online worked fine in a way, but nothing beats the feeling of lying down on your couch in front of your 42" flat screen in a Sunday morning.

I am wondering waht's the best way to get most of the games on TV? I searched around and it seems there is no cable channels covering Serie A that extensively (RAI international will show 2 games/week, TLN one live game and another recorded).

I was in a cab with an Italian guy in Toronto who told me that there is a satellite that can get you all SKY channels, I had a chat with another guy in a bar while watching the Euros who told me the same. Unfortunately I didn't get into much details that time since I was living in a building that doesn't allow Satellite dish but not anymore.

Anyone can give me some help? Much appreciated.

I never heard of getting all Sky channels over this side of the planet to be honest. In the USA, you got FSC and Rai showing Serie A, that is pretty much it. Unless you attach your screen to the computer, then you can watch the streaming on the TV. It's an idea.

Well my neighbour is getting channels from places from the other part of the planet that are much beyond Italy. It seems there is certain ways of doing so.

Dude, its not about how far they are but if they are available at all. I am getting channels from India and China for free... so what? But I can not get, say, Mediaset on satellite because it simply isn't possible.

Well the fact that you don't know how doesn't mean they are not avaiable. I see no reason why two random people would lie to me.

Thanks anyways.

Rai is your best bet. They show a hell of a lot of serie A games. Just pick up illico cable and pay the extra 10$ for the station.

Here's a game-by-game list of sources for TV broadcasts.

(If you're a Fiorentina fan, it's pretty slim pickin's...)

I can get it on my current cable for extra $10/mon. Any idea how many games/week do they usually show?

TLN has about 2 games and Fox sports world Canada has about 2 games. Sometimes you might get an extra one from FSC or even TLN. SO 4-5 games a week not bad.
Thats the only way I follow Seria A!!!
