One World Sports bags English cricket rights

 

One World Sports has acquired the rights to broadcast every home match of the England national cricket team until 2017 in North America.

The multi-year agreement, described in a release as a ‘bold programming move’, will see the broadcaster show up to 600 hours of live action on its linear and digital platforms.

Specifically, the rights package includes Test, one-day and Twenty20 matches played in England, beginning with the home side’s series with Sri Lanka in May and June.

One World Sports acquired the rights through digital sports media company Perform, which last November signed a four-year deal to distribute English cricket in North America and the Caribbean on behalf of the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB).

“We are thrilled to add these Internationals from England showcasing some of the best cricket in the world,” said Alexander Brown, the president and chief executive of One World Sports. “Cricket is one of the world’s most polarising sports, and it doesn’t get any better than the ECB.”

As expected ecb cricket rights will keep bouncing around as neither perform nor one world sports has any significant tv viewers in USA. They will wait for either willow or Espn to repurchase those series. Hoping willow at least buy it since this year Asian teams will be touring there.

Actually the Sri Lanka tour is showing up on the schedule for ESPN 3. OWS lacks carriage distribution, so makes sense to sub-license to ESPN.

^Yes, I'd like to know that too, since I do have Willow HD from Dish, but not ESPN. So far no IPL events are showing up in the schedule.

Satexplorer,

I thought ESPN3 has the right on West Indies home games. But their listing does not show New Zealand tour of West Indies in June-July

I have One world sports on dish network satellite channel. But the channel is SD and the cricket is coming as SD.

If I take OWS via dish world with internet streaming, will I get HD cricket?

It does look good.

 

I prefer the Watch ESPN PQ for my England games. It is nice to have a choice.

I haven't been paying attention during the T20 interlude..... So all games from England are now on ESPN3 and Oneworld Sports (only on DISH or Dishworld IPTV), and Willow has everything else (matches from West Indies and Sri Lanka listed as upcoming over the next few months on their web site)

 

What's the best way for watching ESPN3 on a large HDTV these days? Seems like Roku, if you pay DISH for ESPN channels? But I use DirecTV, so its seems I'm out of luck there. Comcast internet lets me get ESPN3 on IPad/iPod, but iPad hooked up to TV only mirrors the iPad display at same resolution (so the picture only takes up the middle 1/2 of the screen making a 40" TV look like a 17" one!); while the WatchESPN app from the iPod doesn't output video at all, just sound, to the TV (even tho this arrangement works perfectly for Willow/Youtube streaming video out of the standard Safari browser). Seems like I'm out of luck for now, unless anyone has better ideas.

Try using a laptop and connect your herb to it. You should be able to get what you want

Tried that also - unfortunately that was the most painful option. Maybe my MacBookPro has limited capabilities, but because its screen dimensions are smaller than the TV, I had to hook it up, close the laptop, then use a second wired mouse and keyboard to wake it up and have it recognize the TV as the primary display, then start up the ESPN3 streaming video. OK, results were better than with the iPad - but even this set-up didn't completely fill the TV screen and leave it uncluttered from other browser messages. Only the iPod/HDMI-cable option has provided that for me. And the laptop is way too much effort to do on a regular basis - plus I then can't use it while watching cricket. This needs to be as easy as turning on the TV and satellite receiver, and changing the channel. If it takes 10 mins to make it work each time, I just wont bother. :-(

The ease of use you require needs you to subscribe with dish then. A bare minimum pack allows you Espn access and you can use watchespn app
