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

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.

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...lowFeatures.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.

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 :)

No-one in the US has held, or shown interest in, rights for matches from NZ for the last couple of years. Because its India playing in NZ this time, I'd expect Willow will pick it up at the last minute, possibly via the Indian broadcaster of the series. But if that happens, I'd expect it to be a one-time event. Just my hunches.....

According to page 1 of this thread, it would be 713 and/or 9997. (SD version is channel 712)

 

I don't have DISH tho, so can't verify anything.

talk to Dish CSR....as I cannot see any Willow TV transaction or adding it to my account. Dish CSR confirms that they dont see any transaction of the same. They told me that they have hit my box again making sure that not going to happen & that willow TV should be now out of my box. Damm...this is called hitting axe on your foot. I am not at home to verify if Willow TV is gone or not.

 

 

Update....I have AT200, premiums & Hindi Elite....so dont know if Willow was given to me because of that.

US is not the only one. UK and Africa are not able to show New Zealand tour of Sri Lanka. NY Times article did sum up as to why Blackcaps are often not screened. They're are not part of the Top 4. Willow may or may not show India tour of New Zealand. Willow would only show if it's India. Not the case when India tour Sri Lanka in 2008. In early 2005 Blackcaps home games were not shown on Willow online. In recent year England tour of New Zealand were not shown.

Just saw that Pakistan is touring South Africa for ODIs and T20s. Normally willow shows games from South Africa. But Willow has not advertised or shown in their web site. Do anyone know who will show pakistan tour of south africa in USA.

Not true, Willow has sown NZ tour of Bangladesh when both are junk. Also ESPN3 is showing NZ tour of Sri-Lanka. With respect to these, India Vs. NZ is more important.

I agree. What we get to see is based on whether the host country has an agreement with a distributor in the US (these days, Willow or EPSN3). Its not based on who the touring team is. Sri Lanka and Bangladesh have agreements currently, so we see all games from those places - whether its NZ or India touring. NZ playing in Australia and England in recent times have also been shown in Willow. Its just matches from NZ - not been seen for two years now.

I'm sure Willow will show this - and it will hit their schedules as the matches begin. This was a hastily arranged little filler tour to fill a gap in Sth Africa's schedule because the BCCI wanted to punish Sth Africa and so shortened their own tour of Sth Africa greatly from what had been originally planned. I guess you shouldn't complain too loudly about BCCI corruption if you're about to host India in your country!

Now I understand why I continue to get Willow HD channel. Willow is now part of Hindi Elite Pack (which I subscribe to), Urdu Pack & Bangla pack besides being part of Hindi Mega pack as before or la-carte. Good news for sure....hoping more people gets to watch cricket specially in HD where available.

 

Dish should have sent atleast emails to subs having these packs to let them know so that they can start watching some cricket in case they didnt discover it by mistake like I did.

 

http://www.willow.tv...lowFeatures.asp

Available at 712 (Willow) and 9997 (Willow HD). Also available as part of Hindi Mega Pack, Hindi Elite Pack, Urdu Pack and Bangla Pack. Call 800-823-4929 for more details
