    Is DirectTV showing Willow TV in HD now? In addition, does it continue to show commercials between every over?

    I know it's not optimal, but the combination of Willow's YouTube Channel and Google's new Chromecast has been very good for me. The picture quality is quite good and it rarely shows commercials between overs.

    The huge drawback has been I cannot get it to work on live matches, which is okay many times because of the time difference. I am hoping that Google will update the Chromecast to allow live broadcasts.

    What's the difference between these 2 cricket packs - International cricket pack and International Willow pack? Both have only 2 channels - willow and willow hd? Why would anyone go for the 19.99?

    Am I missing something?

    I'm guessing its because they have international matches on (tests from England or Zim-Ind games) every day at the moment. There was a Friends Life T20 being streamed on their website last I logged in there, a few days ago.

    The site is still advertising England County on the front page; however, the listing of matches is gone from the events page. I believe the FriendsLife T20 has break until Aug 17.

    SatExplorer,
    Zee TV launched SkyBoxTv IPTV service in USA, and they carry TEN Cricket. So you can watch LIVE cricket on Ten Cricket in USA as well. I am watching it now while Willow TV stopped Pak/Zim game to show Aus/Eng game.

    TEN Cricket available on the IPTV. Cool, well see if the channel doesn't fade like many channels had on Dish.

    Updates on the broadcast rights as of September 1, 2013

    Pakistan Cricket broadcast contract with Taj Entertainment Network (TEN Cricket) has expired in June. PCB has a new chairman Najam Sethi. He wants to give television rights to Independent Media Corporation which owns Geo Super.

    Pakistan home series vs South Africa and vs Sri Lanka could be on different networks. The 4 networks in the bidding Taj Entertainment Network, Independent Media Corporation (Geo Super), Pakistan Television and Nimbus.

    The fallout from the match fixing in BPL has BCB resetting the broadcast rights. Just like 2012, BCB has again failed to find a broadcaster for their current International home matches.

    India may not tour New Zealand in 2014 due to the Asia Cup. Leading to the dismay of the current broadcast rights retained by Nimbus.

    SatExplorer,
    So the following games or tours are not going to be shown in USA as I understand from you. Is that right?
    - Pakistan home game (actually in UAE)
    - Bangladesh home game including BPL
    - west indies tour of New Zealand

    I don't care about bangladesh, but would like to watch Pakistan home game and WI Vs. NZ

    ESPN3 still has the rights to Pakistan home games. However, host broadcaster is still yet to be determined.

    Today, BCCI has approved a shortned tour to New Zealand starting in January.

    Bangladesh Cricket rights comes with BPL. ESPN3 don't want the BPL because of the price BCB is asking.

    Actually Ten cricket is kind of useless in USA given that Willow and espn3 are covering all the live games in USA that are on ten cricket. The picture quality of Willow and espn3 are better

    The real question with SKYBOX emerging is "Are we going to have ESPN3 cover games that are available through TEN CRICKET?" If TEN CRICKET is available only through their SKY BOX and they dont let ESPN3 cover their games, then we are back to THREE different sources - Willow, ESPN3 (if you are tied to ISP for internet only) and Sky Box...

    Also it is costly. Earlier Willow, ten cricket and neo cricket together cost $19.99. Now $14.99 for willow and another $19.99 for skybox ten cricket.
