    How? I can listen to the radio, that's it.
    The two ways round it are:
    - convinving step-father to remove my internet time out
    - finding 20 a month to fund a Sky Sports subscription and getting mother to agree to setting up a direct debit to her account.

    From past experience I usually manage the first session pretty comfortably. Lunch is the killer tho.

    Plan for work days this year is to watch morning, catch three or so hours kip and tune back in for apres tea.

    This time I've got nada. No Sky Sports, and no PC internet connection from 11pm until 7am so I won't be streaming.
    A digital radio will keep you sane.

    Ach, that's tough. Once you hit the wall, you hit the wall. There's very little chance of coming back after 3 hours kip from 2am to 5am.

    But there's no easy way out. My approach of toughing it out beyond lunch has been proven to fail consistently over the years.

    I've just realised I watched the Super Bowl all through the night last year.

    Now its just a case of doing it on 5 consecutive nights and on 5 seperate occasions...

    Yeah, this. Have to get up pretty early for work in any case, so staying up late isn't really an option (except, probably, the 1st day at Brisbane). Can't do 2.40 though - planning to tune in around 4.45 accompanied by strong coffee and confused cat.

    Get an iPhone and download the Sky Sports app.

    Personally hoping that having a 3 week old baby girl might work to my advantage.

    If I do not get a new job anytime soon this should be fairly easy for me, often watched the first couple of sessions of Australian tests last year without any of the motivation which comes with the ashes, late shifts might mean missing a few opening sessions though.

    Really hope to have at least an internship by the start of January, so that should coincide just nicely.

    I just have Sky Player on my laptop, is pretty expensive but will be well worth the price this winter. (and there may well be sign up deals, I got mine for cheap during ashes last year)

    Does have an occasional tendency to **** up but that is normally only on big football matches.
