Willow Cricket is better then www.Willow.tv
Guys I am just having feeling that ashes will be feed via star cricket since yesterday's all stat v fan xi game was star cricket feed!!!!!!!!!!
Are you saying that willow cricket tv channel will not show ashes, neither directv nor dish network?
Ashes will be on Willow Cricket
Thank You Very Much
ROFL, customer service at DirecTV think that all sporting events that don't sell out are assumed blackout. International sporting events never blackout even if there are less people in the seats. Those games end up on free-to-air TV internationally. Besides, Willow Cricket is still carrying the feed from India since Willow has a office in Bengaluru. Where corporate America has most of their, you guess it...call center services.
He asked if the Direct TV feed is available online. It's not. Willow Cricket is not Direct TV.
lol I can never tell if you're being serious or not.
The *Direct TV* feed of Willow Channel is not available online.
I think you're right because why would they change for the Ashes? The only hope we have is SKY are providing the live UK feed for all the games and it will be a much better quality picture through them and far less commercials.
Can't see it happening though.
They never show Sky Sports feed when game are being played in Australia
England haven't played there since Jan 07 so I wouldn't know, but Willow TV do show SKY feeds so although it's a long shot it's not totally out of the question, but there doesn't seem a logical reason why they wouldn't just stay with Star since that was the channel that showed the A game warm-up and the All Star game yesterday. The warm-up game was broadcast live by SKY in the UK and obviously not taken by Willow.
I am not talking about England tour Australia I am saying they never show Sky Sports feed when game are being palyed in Australia like recently Sri Lanka tour Australia
I don't really want to get another box and another TV service - I already pay way too much in that area! But it is great that Willow is being offered by other services.
I've put streaming video from ESPN3 in full-screen mode on the TV in the past - that worked well, so hopefully the same will apply for willow.tv. Of course, when I did that in the past, we only had old standard-def CRT TV's. I'm about to (finally) plunge into the HD market also - are you watching willow.tv on a larger HD screen? Is the new TV only going to make this look worse??
I subscribed. Let battle commence. I have watched some of the pre-recorded stuff they have had over the last day or so, the PQ is not great, better than streaming though. Thanks.
Interesting what you say about ESPN3 because I agree, when hooked up to the tv it's a really good picture and again I would say that's because they are a major player with the best equipment and technology and can therefore stream a quality HD picture. Same with the BBC. When I watch HD programmes online from BBC I Player and hook it up to the TV the picture is superb and you wouldn't know it's being fed from the computer. Willow online seem unable to provide anything like reliable HD.
As for the tv it shouldn't make much difference but my opinion would be that a poorer picture/stream would look better on a non HD than a HD, simply because HD tv's are built for a specific purpose, which doesn't include enhancing crap feeds. When I watch Willow online the picture is exactly the same on my tv as it is on the computer and the only difference i've found is picture size, i.e. if you maximize it you lose quality.
I know we're going slightly off topic here but Sky Sports (UK) don't produce or have anything to do with the production of outside tests they show in the UK, they simply 'pipe' the feed in from whatever source or home/away cricket board agrees to share rights with them (which might even be the ICC) and have a couple of 'experts' in the studio for continuity purposes when wickets fall/drinks breaks/bad weather etc.
So to answer you directly, the sky sports feed you say they 'never show' for games not involving England that are shown on Sky Sports (UK) don't actually exist - there is no Sky Sports feed. It is possible however that the feed shown on Willow Cricket (online) is the same feed as Sky Sports are showing in the UK.
india vs newzealand is dishnetwork zeetvusa for odis breaking news. comcast agree to give rights to dishnetwork i heard this news but i am not sore 100 percentss
Any link or source please.....
Just glanced again at the Willow Cricket channel schedules. They have now been updated at http://cricket.willow.tv/ to include all of December.
Hopefully, its just an oversight or I missed something - but coverage of the second Ashes test begins with Day 3, third session. Earlier days are not listed. Third and fourth tests are listed in full.
Also, the last hour of the third Ashes test each day will overlap with the first hour of the South Africa-India test being played at the same time. Schedules indicate the Ashes test will be pre-empted with coverage from South Africa.
I'll let the rest of you scan that page more closely for other surprises. I didn't see NZ v Pak listed from Dec 26, but its supposed to be in there somewhere.
They will fix the schedules
