Yes, of course, the Finland-Swedes absolutely support Finland. I am half a Finland Swede myself, hence why I support Finland and am a Mumintroll. I lived in Stockholm during the Olympics (and other Swedish successes in 06), so I had to watch it on Sweden-Swedish television with Sweden-Swedish commentators. Not good. And as soon as the game finished, having all Swedish friends singing OS-Guld, OS-Guld, OS-Guld at you for most of the next week wasn't the best either!

Wouldn't the Finland-Swedes actually support Finland? I mean if it's a Finnish radio channel, they'd probably be pro-Finland wouldn't they?
Anyway, just looked on a forum for (Sweden-)Swedes living in the UK. Apparently The Harcourt Arms can get Viasat's TV3, but Viasat have moved the hockey world championship to TV6 which the pub can't get. One Swedish guy suggests the pub Maple Leaf in Maiden Lane or F3K-Famous 3 Kings in West Kensington. Apparently they've a record of showing hockey games in the past.
Edit: Just saw you're Finnish as well (well, I assume so, if you work in S market in the summer!). I tried out Yle's Swedish internet transmission last night, and as expected it's blocked to within Finland only - sadly, it's a rights-blocked video feed, shame they can't at least broadcast the audio commentary to us who live abroad. Sveriges Radio is offering commentary that does work outside of Sweden, but they're only covering Tre Kronor's games.. I listened a bit yesterday, quite satisfying that they played so poorly against Belarus .
