    Maybe not yet, but there will be. The original press release specifically mentions it. My guess is that we are getting things for free right now and then we'll have to sign up if you don't have qualifying programming.

    I am seeing Ten Cricket. Awesome! I cant see Willow Cricket or Neo Cricket since I do not have an international dish. But this is awesome. I would have got these packages immediately if tehre was a big India series coming up!

    NEO Cricket has disappeared from my list of available channels so I guess
    the move to an a-la-carte monthly $15 or cricket pack yearly $240 (monthly $20 with 1 year commitment) is complete.
    So as I see it, cricket pack is for those who do not want/have international programming. For people who have mega pack (like I do) an additional charge of $15 per month gives you all the cricket available. Now it would have been sweeter if NEO were made part of Mega Pack but we can only dream....

    Totally incorrect on annual commitment. I just chat with a rep and it is confirmed that you can add/remove Cricket Pack anytime and there is no commitment required. Also, if you have dish network, login online account and the system will let you add this pack for $20.

    I read earlier in this thread that someone actually subscribed to this pack, could you please share your experience?

    That is good to know then and I stand corrected. Hope it remains this way (the monthly option without yearly commitment ) Thanks for checking it out.

    Correct, there is no one year commitment. You can add and remove cricket pack as you want. I have subscribed cricket pack $20 per month and also got money back for my old Zee Sports America one year subscription. I don't subscribe any other international package from Dish Network, only cricket pack.

    I have a question. I have an international Dish at home which I believe is pointed towards orbital 118?

    Even though I have not ordered the cricket pack yet, I expect to do so sometime in the future (maybe in the Summer to watch India vs England). The question is will my current Dish be good or will I need something that points to 61.5 orbital location?

    The reason I ask is because, when I see my TV guide (after the installation of the second Intl Dish at home), I only see the intl channels I have subscribed too. Meaning, I do not see Willow cricket, Neo crict, etc in the TV Guide. Normally we should see the channels in the TV Guide which are colored red to denote that these channels have not been subscribed to correct?

    I did make sure that the guide lists "All Chan" and not just the subscribed channels. So basically confused because I do not see the Intl channels that I did not subscribe to in my TV guide.

    Can anyone comment?

    Thanks

    I am confused with one thing. They are saying that Mega Hindi Pack and Cricket Pack are exclusive. If you buy one, then you cannot buy the other.

    If you subscribe Mega Hindi Pack, you cannot subscribe Cricket Pack. If you want Hindi Mega pack + all three cricket channels, here is your option. This looks to me stupid.
    49.99 - Mega pack which includes Willow Cricket
    15.00 - Neo Cricket La carte
    $249.99 (yearly) - Ten Cricket. Ten cricket is on free preview. After sometime you will lose it.

    Makes sense.. Hindi Mega Pack is $49.99 and it includes Willow and Ten Cricket; If you want Neo, just add it as a la carte for $15 instead of $20 Cricket pack. There is NOTHING called $249 Annual Ten Cricket item.

    Update: Correction: There is still an option to get just TEN CRICKET for $249, not sure why they would offer this since Cricket Pack (which includes all 3 channels viz, Willow, Neo, Ten) can be had for $20 a month.
