    Taking a look back at Page 1 of this thread, I'm guessing this change is due to the fact that the second test is being shown on ESPN in India, instead of Star Cricket which showed the first test. It seems Willow doesn't have access to the pre-broadcast feed from ESPN India, like they seem to for Star Cricket, so have to rely on streaming from someone's cable box in India!

    Star Cricket is showing the India-England test, which naturally takes precedence in India. That's OK - but it shouldn't have any impact on what we see here in the US if only Willow would GET A DIRECT FEED FROM AUSTRALIA!!!!! instead of relying on relayed broadcasts from Indian TV channels. I frankly am not interested in what TV channel is showing the game in India - because I live in the US - and wish it didn't impact what we see from Willow.

    Today, Willow aren't even bothering to try and cover up the ESPN India commercials - there's ads for Indian Sportcenter, English and Spanish soccer, cell-phone networks, etc etc. Its actually preferable to (and more professional than) Willow trying to insert their own ads, and a nice break from the incessant ads for Xoom and Bharat Matrimony. But it would be even better if Willow would provide A DIRECT FEED FROM AUSTRALIA!!!!! They can get a raw feed from South Africa, New Zealand and India - what's so hard about Australia? (DirecTV used to manage it, and they didn't even know what cricket was!)

    According to the schedules on page 1, we'll revisit this problem for the first Aus-Sri Lanka test, but the other three remaining tests from Australia are set for Star Cricket in India, so hopefully that means improved coverage from Willow here in the US.

    Jeez - Willow's lawyers must be preparing their letters as we sit here and watch!!

    What a waste of space that channel is. Seems they know they are desperate for live action, and are just trying to see what they can get away with, and if anyone notices, in spite of US rights agreements (ESPN3 for Bangladesh, Willow for India)

    That was on their TV schedule at cricket.willow.tv - so expected and understandable given their primary focus on the India ex-pat community. (Another reason why I don't want to pay for DirecTV Intl dish!) I think the remainder of the Aus-SAfr play will be shown on delay after the play in India ends each day.

    Here with online streaming, my feed threatened to turn into India-England for 15 seconds (I got a countdown to world feed for Ind-Eng) but then it returned to Aus-SAfr.

    Right at the last minute, NEO Prime purchased broadcast rights for Subcontinent and USA. However, ESPN3 still renewed the rights for broadband viewers. Bangladesh broadcasts are not digital nor HD ready yet.

    Willow Cricket is still struggling as described in International Cricket 2011-12 thread. If they can't get High definition in 1080 they should go for 720. Very well lack in sponsors. I also saw those ads on major Hindi networks in North America. Monopolistic channel that destroys alternatives. Are the broadcasts perfect? I'm sure there is interference some part of this world that's causing degradation..

    Yes.

    I'm only a Willow online subscriber.

    At youtube.com/willow and at m.willow.com (once logging in) it is possible to choose to between streams of the Aus-RSA or the Ind-Eng tests.

    Pakistan domestic Twenty20 Cricket will also show on PTV Global from December 1-9. Early start times of several games are going on all at once. PTV Sports coverage could clash with Australia vs South Africa test from Perth. According to previous coverage from GEO Super and GEO TV. One or two games begin either 08:15 UTC (03:15 EST) or 11:00 UTC (06:00 EST). As of now the EPG guides are not updated.

    Just fast forward until the event starts. I don't have Xbox. But I used to do the same when I replay some games from my iPad through Apple TV.

    Hope you tried WI vs Ban one day game. The game on replay started at 50th minutes. So you fast forward first 50 minutes to see the game.

    Is this in ESPN3?

    On youtube.com/willow, many of the replays just wont play at all on either my iPod or iPad, at m.youtube.com or www.youtube.com. Very annoying. I'm not hooking my laptop up to the TV to watch something - that's just way too much effort.
