How is the India-Australia test looking to those who have Willow Cricket channel? (or Neo/Willow2)
Online streaming feed has been very high quality the first four nights. Really nice to have numerous breaks between overs without commercials, and to have great pre-game and lunch-break analysis and highlights. Such a change from the matches played in Australia.
Can't believe I'm the only one who's been watching. I thought all you Indian guys would be lapping this up, but maybe everyone is just hanging out for the IPL? Not my thing, I'm afraid.
I think I would go out on a limb and say this coverage is possibly the best we've had since the demise of Cricket Ticket on DirecTV. Picture quality was great throughout (even over streaming), and there was not a single intrusion to play that I saw from the source - either a commercial break or advertising crawl on the screen. More than half the breaks between overs were not even interrupted by commercials by Willow, often the breaks between overs had the commentators continuing with analysis and replays and not switching their mikes off. Pre-match and lunch break coverage was seamless with the live action. Very enjoyable (unlike Australia's performance on the field!)
Maybe HD-ppv coverage of events in recent years has matched this quality, but I haven't shelled out for those. Looking forward to the last two tests before the now-customary test-match hiatus.
