How is the coverage coming out of India now on Willow, showing the Ind-NZ games?

I assume Star Cricket's coverage is similar to their job on the India away tours of England and Australia in the last year? (Which was a high-quality production job.)

Is Willow using a raw feed again, or rebroadcasting an Indian broadcast feed?

I have Xbox and have seen U19 world cup and SL premeir league on ESPN. The picture quality is HD and superb. I am satisfied. It is better than any of the dish and directv SD channels.

I see through XBox. I don't agree. It may be true that better than most of the dish network hd channels, but not better than DirecTV HD channels. DirecTV HD channels are always better than ESPN3 through internet. Is this possible that XBox is worse than iPad and apple TV or google TV?

Willow is doing great. Picture quality is superb. I like willow for which I can see some good cricket.
ESPN is a stupid and nonsense. They should have created a HD TV channel for Indian ESPN/Star sports program.

your preference is selfish. There are some unfortunate people whose internet provider does not support espn3

No. I like Willow too. I have been subscriber of willow from the day one when they launched the tv. I hate all those illegal streaming. Whether it is cricket or music I would like to pay for the content provider than looking for download links in the web. So I am happy for willow and they are doing good job. In my part I like all those cricket providers in US including Willow, ESPN3 & Ten. Only downside is watching on sd. When you compare the picture quality, ESPN is much better than other. It's almost HD. As I said earlier it is better than most of the hd channels in dish. I support ESPN because of their HD feed. Even if willow come forward for hd feed dish is struggling to provide enough bandwidth. Even they are struggling for national channels. I am big fan of soccer, now you see they launched new soccer channel bein sports only on sd, but it is hd on direct.

No kidding.

A lot of people with satellite live in rural areas not supported by cable. Internet services are run by smaller companies who do not have agreements to have ESPN 3. I find myself in this situation. I am English and I do not get chance to watch their defence of the title. I am annoyed.

Yes, it is true. Luckily I am getting 30mbps from Comcast. So my streaming is awesome.

You are not alone in annoyed by not able to watch espn3 even though in some way I & you paid espn in winning that right. I also don't like illegal links but have no choice to watch these games. I will not switch provider just for espn3.

That's why I have no choice but to watch less & less cricket. Hoping that's what ICC plan is.

England may not fair well in Sri Lanka, As records show their performance in Sri Lanka. Competitive in tests, fewer wins in ODIs. No records in T20I.

I can't say this better than ESPN3's Vice President Damon Phillips. "We're removing the traditional Pay-Per-View barrier and making these World class events to millions of fans."

I see no small internet provider is willing to pay to bring ESPN3. To those small internet providers stop living in the past!

I have 50 Mbps comcast internet service. I am watching the same US open tennis live content via ESPN3 on Xbox LIVE and also on DirecTV satellite dish ESPN HD channel. The movement of the ball when watching via espn3 is not as smooth as that I watch on DirecTV.
Is this espn3 stream issue or Xbox issue?
