Satellite cable?  That's going to be a tough find ;)

Sticky Wicket has had NCAA games in the past.

No bar is going to have ESPN. Victoria is in Canada.

 

Every bar and most restaurants will have TSN and Sportsnet, though.

 Victoria is in Canada.

 

Isn't that the point of a satellite dish? Satellite dishes receive television signals that are transmitted from somewhere other than Canada.

 

I was hoping to catch the Mongolian goat milking semi-finals this weekend. :)

Maybe an illegal satellite dish, but to my knowledge the only ESPN branded channel broadcasting in Canada is ESPN classic. ESPN is a part owner of TSN, which I assume will show lots of NCAA basketball games (they usually do).

I'm highly aware this is a rare request, none of the normal sports bars like sticky, tally ho, shark club, etc have it.

 

I work for shaw cable and i know you can't get it from a Canadian provider.

 

That being said, i went to 2 different bars in Vancouver over the weekend. Both had satellite TV (from a non Canadian company) and ESPN was included in that. 

 

I was hoping to find a hidden gem somewhere in Victoria, but it doesnt sound like anyone has it.

I'm a pretty aware guy, and I know of none.
