Is there internet access & viewing of NFL games in Jamaica?

Recommended Posts

Hello BDW brides. You are going to love this question. My fiance and family are die hard football fans--Philadelphia Eagle fans to be specific. They attend every home game (even though they live in Indiana & Virginia--yes they drive to PA for every home game & several away games). So, needless to say a September wedding is a bit of an inconvenience for them--however, they are all supportive.

HELP! Do you know if there is a place to access hi speed and / or wireless internet in Jamaica (specifically near the Riu Ocho Rios)? Or is there a local bar/pub that shows the NFL Sunday games?

I am sure I cannot be the only BDW bride to experience these issues? Your help, advice, suggestions, are appreciated!!! Oh, and go ahead and laugh...NFL on my honeymoon!! Haha!!

Thanks for your help in advance!!

I believe there's a bar where you can watch the game and the internet access is slow for what I've heard from past ROR brides. Let me know if you need a photographer, maybe we can share the photographer that I'm flying down.

Thanks for the info on the bar. We are bringing a photographer with us--a family member who does photography on the side. If anything comes up with her, I will contact you about your photographer. Are you worried at all about the weather?

We just cancelled all our local wedding plans (ceremony/reception) last Monday and started planning the DW on Tuesday. I am so excited! This is what I wanted from the beginning, but I feel a little behind on all the details. I am going to let our TA make all the arrangements and sit back and relax (at least that's the plan right now). Ha-ha! Keep in touch!!!

Too funny!!! At least none of them are not going because it interferes with football season!! lol

I can't say anything about Jamaica, but I know 2 years ago when we were in DR then showed the superbowl in the lobby sitting area on a huge projector screen. Maybe you could ask them to set something like that up for you. Contact the resort directly to see what they can do!

There is internet access pretty much everywhere. The resorts usually have extended cable that brings in channels from the states. You should be able to catch a few games.

We tried to watch the football playoffs in the sports bar (over near mamme bay) on the sunday we were there and they could not get us any football so we took over the bar instead..*lol* There is also slot machines and few games down there too. Nacho's are good if you want a midnight snack :)

There is internet accress but you are required to pay for it.
