Help me watch the RWC!

Has anyone used Setanta's broadband service before?

I find myself in the unhappy position of being unable to watch most of the RWC 2007 because the NA cable carrier, Setanta, is not available through my cable provider. Rogers SportsNet is only carrying games in which Canada is playing, and although the local sports bar carrying the games is wonderful, I don't think I want to spend that much time in a bar.

The options, then, are limited to waiting 24 hours to watch games or buying the Setanta broadband service for US$149/year (it would be US$10/game to do it PPV).

So - has anyone used their service? Is it reliable and likely to be reasonable considering I have a good DSL connection at home?

Please search the archives for a similar question just yesterday. Plus, what does Google say?

The newsgroup has a lot of recent rugby matches, there's a good chance someone will be posting the RWC as well. With a fast DSL line you'll be able to watch them in near real-time.
