I refer to the letter of Garmen Chan, vice-president, External Affairs of Hong Kong Cable TV of June 20, 2004. I have never seen such poor football coverage in my life. Even before this nonsense ('Euro A Go Go') we have suffered since the 2002 World Cup.

Come on Cable, give us a game for two halves

Hong Kong's love affair with English football has blossomed in recent years and will be very much in evidence tonight when the season reaches its traditional climax.

All around the city, fans will be glued to their television sets to see whether hot favourites Manchester United can avoid defeat at the hands of underdogs Millwall.

Enjoy the wide choice of TV action - but it ain't gonna last

We are in the midst of the golden age of televised sports here in Hong Kong. Seriously, we get virtually everything. I don't mean every single game in every sport. I mean virtually every single meaningful game in every sport is now offered.

Some, like the NHL and college basketball, are available on a pay-per-view basis. But the point is they are available.

Four great matches in prospect as FA Cup fever takes hold at CABLE

CABLE serves up four live FA Cup ties plus four Serie A matches this week. The Cup ties are a good mix of possible giant killings and genuinely big-time ties.
