All channels are subject to change. I saw 117-119 change to 477-479 2 months ago.
[mentions new programming on HindiDirect.
Whats the new programming on hindi direct?
What does "Regional" in the listings above mean? Does this mean that DirecTV might cover these series?
Regional means that the home and road team will not be covered in all continents. This list is subject to change.
Man, I used to watch Cricket when I lived in Felixstowe in East Anglia. There's nothing like a good googly! But alas I can not find the wherewithal for such an expense.
hi, could you please post the entire newsletter from DirecttV in this ...
299$ is way expensive compared to last 2 years...where DirectTV had cricketticket for 150$ ....this is double price and in this economy, I wonder who will buy it
this is the flyer I got from Directv.
One major series that is missing is Aus vs SA in SA. How come Directv is showing the later series in SA (Eng v SA) but not Aus v SA?
Please bear with me as I am using imageshack foir the first time.
UTV movies (new for 2009) and Aastha are now included in hindidirect package.See my other post for the flyer from directv.
This is the most ridiculous package, I ever saw from DirectTV. I was thinking of buying Cricket Ticket but this is too expensive. They should cut down at least 100$.
Also, Their Hindi Package sucks big time........Star Plus and Star One , they already show on Dish NetWork ...That Leaves only NDTV and MTV and for two channels they charge 30 bucks...........I mean Price is fine..but show more channels like NDTV Imagine or COLORS etc..........
DirectTV sucks big time...............................................
Also, Why they are not updating their website with this new announcements.......
Directv had the STAR network before DISH did. They are working on making their offerings more competitive by adding Aastha and UTV Movies to the hindidirect package. Cricketplus (although not a great channel) is still provided so that one can watch reruns of cricket matches. I would say Directv is quite ok when it comes to their offerings. Can they improve even more? Sure.They were missing a movie channel and utv movies should hopefully help with that. Now if only MTV starts showing more songs rather than useless roadies, etc....
Also about CricketTicket, you will notice that this year they have merged the ICC tournaments and IPL into the package. Previously you had to buy IPL and iCC tournaments separately.
So does that mean that Cricket Ticket won't be broadcasting the 2009 Ashes series?
Does Zee Sports America have the exclusive broadcast rights or will Cricket Ticket also have the rights?
DISH has exclusive rights to England home matches through 2010, I believe, and that includes the next Ashes series this summer. DirecTV won't have any way to show those matches.
Your best option (short of switching to DISH) is to watch Zee Sports America online.
The tour match contracts are negotiated with each Test/ODI country for matches hosted by that country's team. (I phrase it in that fashion because the "host" country retains the broadcast rights even if the matches are held at a neutral venue, I believe.) Currently the England-hosted tours contract is held by DISH/Zee Sports America, which also holds the contracts for India, Pakistan. DirecTV holds the contracts for Australia, New Zealand and South Africa. I believe DirecTV also holds the rights to matches from Bangladesh, Zimbabwe and the West Indies, although not all of the tours to these locales have been broadcast on DirecTV.
ICC tournaments and the IPL have separate contracts and have been available on both DISH and DirecTV.
I am a bit surprised at the dearth of tours included and with the inclusion of the IPL, the T20 WC, the T20 Champions League, and the Champions Trophy. These had all previously been set up as extra purchases. $299 might be worth it if you planned to purchase and watch all these extra tournaments, but some, like the Champions League, have dealt with postponements. Personally, I'd like to see some of the tours marked as "regional" to be included.
So, to answer your original question, the Ashes are not likely to be seen on DirecTV.
Oh great... So if you're an Australian Cricket Fan living in the US, you have to subscribe to Dish Network for the 2009 Ashes series and India tours and then in December switch to Direct TV for the Australian domestic season???
That's so annoying!!!!
Okay...I am cricket crazy maniac...and I have both DISH and DIRECTTV..so that I do not miss a single series....................
My Cost to Watch : ASHES/ Australia's Tour of India /West Indies tour of England and Sri Lanka's Tour of India would be not more than 120$ (6 months of subscription of Zee Sports America).
Okay..Compare that with the ****ty package that DirectTV Offers...and kind of series they are offering with money.......Does not make sense unless they change the package prices too 149$
Now they can remove IPL and 20-20 World Cup from Package that they are offering (that leaves with with India's tour of New Zealand and Pakistan's tour of Australia )..........
DIRECTTV SUCKS BIG TIME.................................Compare to Prices and Packages that DISH TV offers......................
If IPL is being offered by both DirectTV and DISH.......I would buy it from DISH ............Simply because, DirectTV sucks.......
Can you actually purchase Zee Sports America for only six months? When it was first announced, I thought I saw that a full year's subscription was the only option.
I've never watched it but I agree that is too much. To me $99.99 would be a good value. At that price I might have been curious enough to look into it and perhaps get it.
