    1) It appears that the opening ceremony is not marked as PPV ... I can set a timer for it and I have not purchased the package. The actual games are marked as PPV and come up with a price when selected.

    2) A DVR will have a longer EPG. Non DVRs only have a 48 hour guide.

    3) I don't know the quality of the online feed.

    Guys... check this old link out from google web page cache regarding Cricket PPV purchase. Read straight to No. 18. I couldn't find any active link on dish confirming the same. Dish might have changed policy later.

    Note: Cricket matches and tournaments are an exception to this rule. All PPV cricket orders will be authorized for the primary receiver only. Additional receivers may not be authorized under any circumstances. For DOD Movies on Demand, when ordering the same movie on multiple receivers, each movie will be charged

    Hello,
    I purchased the ICC world cup a few weeks ago, however when I try to record or select the first game India vs Bangladesh, still says that I need to purchase the event. I did call dish and they said maybe to wait till after 12 tonight, but the thing that surprised me most was that he said most games will not be allowed to be recorded to dvr..does any1 know if this is true?

    Are you trying to DVR on primary receiver or other ones. What I have seen is that you can DVR on primary, but we are not even sure if it works on secondary receivers on same account or not. Do you see ICC World Cup under purchases on receiver you are trying to record ? Maybe that is the reason.

    Hey guys, sorry for the long delay for a response :). I was double checking info and was able to confirm it will only be available on your primary receiver.

    As ateet said it's only available for the whole cup, we do not have individual matches available for purchase. Sorry :(

    Dish network phone reps are giving totally contradictory information saying it will be available on all receivers.

    Edit - Will matches be available on all receivers. I understand DVR part will not be available on all receivers.

    Yes, it was. The games are marked for PPV with a message to call dish to subscribe.

    Sorry, I did leave that a bit vague. The primary receiver is for the whole account. DVR or Non-DVR only the primary receiver can view the programming.

    If the receiver was replaced then the ppv event should transfer to the new one. You shouldn't have to order it again.
