    This sounds like a dodgy operation. Dish have their own IPTV service now also - it sounds like this Skybox service could be infringing on rights held by Willow, ESPN3 (for cricket into the US) and DishWorld (IPTV streaming of other channels on Skybox). If they impact ESPN3 in any noticeable way, ESPN will shut them down. Dish will shut off offending channels on their own service until popular opinion/outcry swells. Willow.... well, you know what can happen there. If its costly, has low PQ, and no website, I'd beware.....

    TEN has rights to some cricket, so they can stop letting ESPN3 cover the same games, which will mean we need a skybox for anything streamed through TEN CRICKET and it is hard to justify $19.99 just for TEN CRICKET (if that's what you are interested in). I am not sure about infringements on other channels. Net-Net: It is unclear how this box & package will work, no website yet, etc. Like you guys, I will wait for now.

    Does anyone has any update on TEN CRICKET in USA, especially on DISH or ROKU or other channels? I am not convinced with Sky Box TV...yet.

    Willow website is now listing the Bangladesh v New Zealand series, with first test listed on their TV schedules this week; plus Pakistan v Sri Lanka in UAE in December/January. Is Willow going to have home matches from all test countries except WI and Sri Lanka?

    Willow TV will have that - in HD on Dish Network; SD on DirecTV and cable, or via their online streaming service.
    See www.willow.tv

    I followed a blogger the other day. Someone did contacted Zee TV USA. TEN Cricket isn't coming back due to the lack of subscribers.

    All home games from Bangladesh, UAE venue for Pakistan are on temporary deal. New long term broadcasters will be announced next year. West Indies Cricket new home is ESPN3. I'm not sure if Sri Lanka Cricket will stay on ESPN3 both Sri Lanka and Pakistan broadcasts are obtained by Zee/TEN license.

    Willow HD is coming soon although you can see page #1. Last page if you have it descend. Cable systems list it as Willow Plus SD. Willow Cricket and Willow Plus have the same listing. 4 digit channel number means HD. Dish ch 9997 Verizon Fios ch 1007. Cablevision has it on ch 1171. EPG has not updated if rest of the carriers will add Willow HD.

    If Willow Plus = Willow HD, then what's the difference between ch 713 and 9997 on Dish Network?

    DirecTV uses four-digit numbers for international channels, and they are all in SD. I believe their infrastructure can't support HD from the satellite that beams the international channels. Therefore, if they add Willow WD, it would have to be from a core satellite (something I've been hoping for since cricket-ticket PPV went away!)

    At the "TV Channel" page on willow's site:
    http://www.willow.tv/EventMgmt/UserMgmt/WillowFeatures.asp
    there is still no mention of HD. (Although this page has not been updated since the demise of NEO cricket.)

    I suspect the use of the Willow-HD logo in the banner (as shown above) on their home page was probably a mistake.... latest logo thrown in without thinking about the implications! But good to know Fios and Cablevision have picked up the HD version.

    San Jose,...
    Any chance Willow picks up the rights to show India tour of New Zealand ? Matches in Australia and New Zealand are always fun because being in the west coast of the US, you can watch them live...but so far it looks like neither ESPN3 or Willow TV is showing them? Does anyone know if negotiations are going on?

    I still have this channel. Willow HD. I have to check my account tomorrow since I never sub to this channel on dish. I am though willow.tv streaming sub & watch the games on my phone or pc. I have to admit that willow HD channel quality is very impressive. Will watch day 3 on it rather than my pc :)
