    Where did you get this information? There is NO update in their daily uplink reports in satguys site for removal and also dish.com still lists Ten in cricket pack and hindi package.

    TEN Cricket is gone? That caught me by surprise. If it is permantley gone. That means the price of Pakistan and Sri Lanka home games new tv contracts are too expansive. Those costs to increase goes to you the consumers. The possibility of a new channel carriage dispute.

    West Indies Cricket may be headed to ESPN3. Zimbabwe Cricket is picked up on Willow Cricket. That leaves a why and when for Pakistan and Sri Lanka Cricket without a broadcaster. You can't have Willow's monopoly machine to run on diesel forever.

    yes, the channel is gone permannently. I don't understand, ten cricket is already showing these games in India so why they can;t show in USA?

    But ESPN3 is showing this in USA.
    Satexplorer,
    Does this mean espn3 is not going to do internet coverage?

    I spoke to a DISH rep and the only information he had was that "Pakistan home games are not being played so TEN Cricket will no longer be carried". I also asked him if Mega Pack customers will also get Willow TV SD 712 but he did not have any information. If willow is no longer carried by DISH you can always go online. Not so with TEN. That being said, who is going to broadcast the Indian tour of SA late this year? Willow?

    what about West Indies and Sri Lanka home games? Willow will broadcast India tour on SA. Do you know if any IPTV box carries TEN?

    ESPN3 has all the ICC tournaments til' 2015. However, internet subscribes still don't have access to ESPN3. To deter that Dish PPV steps up and offers the tournament to everyone. If you still have access to ESPN3 there is no need to watch on Dish. If you don't have ESPN3 alternative choice is to either watch on Pay-Per-View or take a trip to the tournament.

    TEN Cricket still have those rights in the Subcontinent. Cricket rights including ICC tournaments on TEN Sports only in Pakistan.

    Pakistan home games are no longer in Pakistan because of the security situation and political turmoil taking place. Most of the matches are now shifted to the UAE. The price is very hefty to have cricket matches in the Arab countries. Dish rep still may not have clue as to when Pakistan Cricket resumes it's home games. Also the new TV contract price of Pakistan Cricket is too high for carriage in the United States.

    Some indication is West Indies cricket could go to ESPN3 as the have rights to Caribbean tournaments and Womens Cricket. Willow has obtained rights to Zimbabwe Cricket. New broadcast rights for Sri Lanka Cricket, that was bought by TEN Cricket, is also too high for coverage in the United States. The South Africa home games are still with Willow Cricket.

    So this means people in USA will not be able to watch Pakistan and Sri Lanka home games. Can IPTV like Watchindia, yupp etc can carry ten cricket from india?

    On your own risk if you want to watch that on IPTV or get those sneaking surprises from the Willow's prosecution team.

    so it looks like things are moving backwards in regards to cricket telecast in USA. At one time we had three dedicared channels and cricket from all boards were shown. Now we reduced to one channel and lost 4 cricket board coverage - Pakistan, Sri Lanka, West Indies and New Zealand.

    But on the plus side, if your cricket board is covered (or the one your team is touring) then we do have an HD channel. I am fortunate that England is my team and the two upcoming Ashes series should be covered. I can get ESPN 3 so I am covered there too. The HD is a vast improvement over the old PQ.

    I am on the cricket pack, are they going to revert us to the Willow Channel only for $5 less?

    SatExplorer,
    I am desparate to get TEN cricket because I like WI, PAK and Sri Lankan talented players (Always I thought more talented than any other countries). Can we lobby to get it back on Dish Network or ask DirecTv to carry it or ask any IPTV provider to carry it?
    When can you get some info about if espn3 will take over WI cricket?

    sir what is big flix channel 725 on dish network means big international channel 725. I see only one channel.


    second question I see hindi pack has willow cricket and ten cricket do we get our money back from dishnetwork bc we have cricket pack.

    espn3 is giving free icc trophy cricket while dish network choose pay piew for 50 dollars what is point of having willow cricket then.

    We get robbed by ipl already bc ipl was fixed. they should give us icc trophy for free on dishnetwork.
