    Hope that works out OK for you. We have Verizon DSL with ESPN3 access, but I can't get the WatchESPN app to work on an iPhone or iPad due (I presume) to Apple's issues with FLASH. Most video even within the web browser is a problem on the iPad. I'd keep a laptop handy too!

    As willow is showing everything, now the problem is too many overlapping games and we have only one TV channel. Is anyone subscribing Willow on line stream? If you subscribe on line stream, can you watch the game of your choice, means do they provide multiple simultaneous LIVE stream?

    For example, tomorrow RSA Vs Eng T-20I and IND-NZ T20I clash in time and willow cricket TV channel will prefer IND-NZ game. But I want to watch RSA-Eng T-20I live.

    At least when I did subscribe to their website - nearly two years ago now - yes: you had a menu of games to choose from. If more than one game was on live, you could choose which one to watch. In some cases, there was even multiple feeds to choose from for each game - eg: Ch9 Australia and Sky Sports feeds for the Ashes from Australia.

    If I recall, there was also an ability back then to gain access to the website feeds if they verified you as a customer of the cricket channel on DirecTV or Dish. This would only allow you access to live coverage of games that were in progress, but not being shown on the TV channel. You wouldn't get access to the website any other time, or for highlights/replays of older games that are always available to website customers - but it got around the problem of you wanting watch a different live match from what the TV channel was showing.

    Don't know if any of this exists any more - but hopefully it does, given they now have rights to so many tours, and may have 2 or 3 overlapping games from time to time (not counting domestic matches from India and Australia!)

    While there's been a lot of discussion about getting ESPN3 streaming directly on the TV, I was wondering if anyone has tried this with Willow.

    They claim on their website that Willow can be watched through Youtube. Both my TV and DirecTV receivers have Youtube apps. I've never played with the TV one, but explored the DirecTV app once. I could search on Willow and find some footage of old games. No live games on at the time. Without any login, I could watch some of the old games. Picture quality was OK, but the DirecTV receiver connection is wifi, and our internet is Verizon DSL - so there's a lot I could do to improve that if needed.

    I've never set up a youtube account - so I'm not sure how the Willow-Youtube linking works. And if the TV/receiver apps could handle this or if it would be a laptop-computer thing only.

    Has anyone tried this - or does anyone have the online access and want to try?

    Willow can be seen through Xbox. I got the following information from their web site. Have anyone tried it? Before I buy willow on line stream I need to know if Xbox works

    Our live streaming should be available via an Xbox app by the second half of 2012. In the meantime, users can access Willow TV on the Xbox by following the instructions below:

    * Install XBMC on your Xbox from this link xbmc.org
    * Download ADD-ON repository.googlecode.apple-tv2-xbmc.zip provided on this link.
    http://code.google.com/p/apple-tv2-xbmc/downloads/list
    * Install this ADD-ON zip file on xbmc media center by going to the System -> Settings -> Add-ons -> Install from zip file (Select the Add-on zip file from your directory & it will install and enabled automatically).
    * After installing the Add-on successfully goto Get Add-ons -> aj add-ons (Enabled).
    * Select it and goto Video Add-ons -> Willow TV. Install Willow TV on XBMC. After succesfully installed, configure your Willow TV Username & Password on it and close it.
    * Then goto XBMC home page -> Videos -> Add-ons -> Willow TV -> My Packages to select your Willow TV subscribed package.
    * Select the match you want to see from the package list and enjoy it on your Xbox.
    * You will need a valid subscription to play the Live stream on your Xbox.

    However, you tube is supported through XBox and willow has you tube channel. Is the stream through you tube channel is high definition and good? Do they have multiple simultaneous you tube channel?

    Unfortunately, I don't have a Roku, Apple TV or Xbox - and don't really want to buy additional boxes to stash around the TV. With an internet-connected TV and DirecTV receiver, I was hoping I'd have enough equipment to cover me here. However, if one of those other solutions really works as a quality solution for both Willow and ESPN3, I'd consider it as that seems to be where most top cricket will be for the next few years at least. (Neither my TV or receiver will do ESPN3)

    Has anyone tried the Willow app on Roku/AppleTV/Xbox? They also have one for Samsung TV's - and we have such a TV at work. When I was a paying customer, I loaded the app on the TV at work, and was pretty underwhelmed. I could get the free demo clip no problem, but it never bought up the "live feed" (I presume, of the Willow Cricket TV channel) and there didn't seem to be a menu option for choosing from multiple live games or seeing old replays/highlights. I'd want that option if I was going to buy additional hardware and subscribe again.

    On the other hand, I played with the YouTube app on my TV. Unlike DirecTV, this gives me the option of logging in to a Youtube account - so if I had such an account that was linked to a willow account, maybe I could access the live coverage. Without logging in, I had ~ 2000 videos to choose from, some full replays, mostly highlight clips for matches two weeks or more older. Picture quality was OK, given its SD feed to begin with, and my TV is only connected by wifi at this point.

    If anyone is interested in watching a tape delay in the Afternoon? ESPN2 will only show the ICC World Twenty20 Final on October 7. Confirmed by the ICC official website. Last time cricket was shown on ESPN2 was back in 2008 when they showed 2 hour highlight of the Stanford Super Series.

    did you notice one thing in xbox? When I am watching the same live content via laptop and xbox. The xbox content is always more than a minute delayed. Also, sometimes some content I can watch in laptop, but not on xbox. xbox does not have some contents not listed.
    What is the other tv box via which I can watch espn?

    Watch ESPN apps from your iOS device or android device. But it's linked with your tv provider. I am air playing from iPad through apple tv. Quality is amazing. Today I watched EPL soccer game, the quality was really awesome. I have subscribed to Fox Soccer HD. The quality is almost similar. I am really impressed with watch ESPN apps in my iPad.

    Air play is a wireless streaming technology which is implemented by apple on iOS platform. If you have iOS device like iPad or iPhone 4 & above and apple tv, you can stream Watch ESPN from your iPad and transfer the HD content to your TV through apple tv by using air play technology.

    So you need,
    1. iPad
    2. Apply tv

    If you have both above devices and your tv provider or ISP provider is part of watch ESPN, you can stream the hd content to your tv using air play.

    When you connect your iPad and apple tv on same network, iOS will automatically enable the air play. So that you can stream with out any issues.
