Watch Wimbledon 2023 in your log cabin

If, like me, the rest of your household doesn't care too much for sport and in particular tennis, then you need to find a way to watch undisturbed without causing friction or limiting access to the main TV. 

Wimbledon is being covered predominantly by the BBC this season and good job too. 

So, in the knowledge that if you want to watch the tennis live you will need to have a smart TV connected to the internet, a digital aerial atop your cabin  or if you have a Sky subscription you could consider these two options :

  1. Use the Sky Go app either on your mobile devices which works very well assuming your data download speed is reasonable. Be aware this does eat into your data allowance so always best to get access to a wifi network where possible.
  2. Sky Q mini box. I have set up a Sky minibox in my man cave to good affect. You will need access to the same network as your main Sky Q box is on. This may need some form of booster to get a usable  wifi signal to your remote location.

It’s not too late to get your man cave installed for the remainder of the summer. We have some great bargains on special offer cabins and for a quick delivery take a look at our in stock cabins.

One of the most famous rivalries was between Bjorn Borg and John McEnroe in the late 1970s and early 1980s.
