T5B Lounge [TVs showing football on Sky Sports?]

Does the lounge have a TV screen and if so what is the likelihood of them showing the Liverpool v Man City match on Sunday. I can watch on my iPad, wifi permitting, but would prefer to watch on a big screen.

Thanks

I can’t recall ever seeing sky sports in any Heathrow lounge, so no it’ll be your own streaming. Title not so helpful for future searches ..

If you use your own streaming, make sure to have your device on full volume, just so the other occupants of the lounge don't miss out.

Stream it on sky sports on your iPad. I’m not aware of any T5 lounges covering such.
Btw the title of the thread is well off the mark and needs changing if any mods are around.

they have several TVs and, unless things have changed this season, have SKY Sports, they do not have BT Sports

If the game is on SKY I have never had a problem getting it on at least one of the TVs

You may, of course, be in a minority.

Use your iPad, and spare the rest of us. You might be surprised how many other people don't give a s**t.

I think thatís a little unfair.

I just want to watch the match on a big screen. Iím not planning to have the volume turned up. The reason I was going to watch in the T5B as itís quieter so less chance of disturbing people

Virgin clubhouse perhaps?

I've watched many a game in the past on a Sunday afternoon, facing the big TV wall there, with a few glasses of Aspalls while waiting for a flight to NY.

May not be a lot of help here of course

I have watched games in the B lounge and in the A lounges, but since the B lounge is usually quieter its "easier" to change one of the TVs without upsetting people.. I watched one of last seasons old firm games in the B lounge
