Going Paris next week, need advice/help!

I'm going to Paris next week with my fam on holiday. Even though i'm looking forward to it, it has presented me with two problems.

1) I'm going to miss the united vs bayern game. I could go watch it in a pub/bar but this game happens to fall on the same day as the lyon vs bordeaux match so i doubt any place would put the united game on over the french derby. luckily the hotel we are staying at has wifi, so i am going to take my netbook to try and stream it or listen to it via the radio. however when i tried to view something through justin.tv it was very choppy and unwatchable. will upgrading the ram help? im running ubunutu netbook remix! any advice on how to catch the game would be great!

2) I'm taking my blackberry with me and called o2. I was told i can buy 20mb of internet for £20. all i would really use is msn and bbm on there. Would that be enough? are there any apps where I can track my usage?

any help with either of these would be helpful! thanks!

5Live on bbc.co.uk if you want Radio.
And depending on your hotel, you may have Sky TV in your bedroom.

Upgrading ram won't make any difference. Its down to your broadband speed.

I wouldn't bother watching/listening anyway unless you want to spoil your trip :-D

no problem... I used it around 12 months ago and it was correct.. best plan is to call into the pub in the morning and confirm though... but it gives you an idea of places to try

is it paris city you are going to or disney? theres a sports bar in disney village shows EVERYTHING on different screens if thats your location.directly opposite starbucks
