What they have now is actually a good thing. The only rights NEO Cricket had was for games in India which have since been acquired by the STAR group (which in turn makes them available on Willow). As a result, when there are multiple games going on at the same time Willow has only one tv channel to show them. With a secondary channel they can have two matches showing and the viewer can make a choice on which match to watch.

 

But the big question is.... WILL they be that logical? More likely they'll still be showing the same game -- of their choice -- on both channels. :P

Did Tencricket loss Their tv rights for Zim Cricket?

I don't understand this. The ten cricket channel in usa is still advertising zim-ban second test.

Well, they do have to figure out how to manage it on the tv providers. Take DISH for example, they have the Mega pack that carries Willow and TEN, they have NEO aka Willow Plus standalone for $14.99 and then they have the Cricket Pack for $19.99. As it stands, they cannot show different matches since subscribers to two of the three combinations (Mega and standalone) have  only one choice. I think in the long term DISH needs to get rid of the standalone $14.99 subscription and have two offerings - Mega Pack with both Willow channels and TEN OR Cricket Pack with both Willow channels and TEN.

Just saw this in DISH NETWORK UPLINK report: (Says just ADDED to satellite, but it usually takes 1-3 days for the channel to be AVAILABLE)

 

9997(712) - WLLOW [MPEG4 HD] added to Anik F3 118.7W TP 32 ConUS beam (NA)

 

This is great news!!! If Willow will be made available in HD.

Now there are two same channels on Dish Network. I think they will keep one channel as SD and convert the other HD. Don't be excited because they will charge more for the HD channel.

I guess its better than three channels all not showing the game - esp if there's nothing else on live at the time.

I wonder if DirecTV would carry it also? A HD channel would have to be on their core satellites, not requiring the stupid international dish! :-)

I noticed that highlighes and recodrding events are in HD on willow HD dish network channel. However, today during live game the live telecast was not HD. It looked same as transmission on other SD willow channel. Do anyone know why?

You should get it if you 1) Have the Cricket package, 2) Have an HD receiver, and 3) Have HD programming set up. I had to switch to the All channels guide to see it, it's listed as 712-HD, alongside the original SD version of 712.
