Default Sports bar on Diamond Princess?

I have read that there is a 'sports bar' on board the DP. Does anyone know if they show live sporting events? There are some games/races that will fill up my VCR while we're gone...if I could watch them while on board that would be better. Thanks for the info.

I looked at the sports bar (which is also the cigar smoking bar) . There wasn't much on at the time I looked at it. They have 4 TV's on and I believe they were all showing the same thing. You have to remember that they will only show what they can pick up on the satelites and where they are at the time.

Thanks very much for the info Mb. The thing is, with the broadcast satellites in the sky they should be able to have a constant signal all the time. If an airline (JetBlue) can offer DirecTV satellite TV for their passengers in flight, I would assume a huge ship can too. Maybe I'm missing something here. What is the name of the sports/cigar bar btw?

The name of the bar is Churchills Cigar Bar (not exactly a sports bar). I was on the Golden Princess back in 2001 during the world series and the sattelites could not pick up the game on a couple of nights and we ended up watching soccer one night and basketball the next night. They said that the sattelites could not pick up the game. I guess you have to hope they can pick up the shows you want.
Enjoy,
Mike
