    jhangir,
    what about pakistan tour of england (2 T20, 4 tests and 5 ODIs)? Will it be Live on Cricket Plus. This tour will be exciting.

    Willow Cricket takes over CricketPlus, all programs are still owned by TEN Sports.

    So clever our DirecTV
    You need to spend $300 for only ICC & IPL type of tournament
    and another 12*15 = $180 for tour.
    i.e earlier what DirecTV was showing with $300, this year for $480.
    Salute to their cleverness.

    Cricketplus aka willow Cricket channel on Directv is advertising the Pak tour of Eng (matches with Eng and Aus) as being shown live on Cricketplus aka Willow Cricket.

    Not sure Pak Vs Aus will be shown on Willow Cricket, because www.cricketplus.tv web site does not show

    Satexplorer,
    Correct your information. Willow cricket is not going to cover Pak vs Aus. The game has started, but Willow Cricket or Cticket Plus is not showing.

    Jhangir,
    Do you know any other channel showing or not in USA?

    I don't know where did you get the breaking news that Pak vs Aus will be shown. I watch cricket plus and has never seen any such advertizement.

    I have no idea why it is not shown in USA while shown in ATN cricket plus in canada. It's just nonsense.

    Can you call DirecTV and ask them to connect the feed?

    Another blackout for the DBS in the United States. After 2008 when DISH Network lost the rights to Pakistan Cricket. Nobody has carried any game except for PAK vs AUS (UAE) that was simulcast on ZEE Sports and CricketPlus. PAK vs BAN, CAN vs PAK vs SL vs ZIM on ARY Digital and all domestic games from Pakistan on GEO TV. Willow TV is showing PAK vs AUS without ads and the Willow Cricket logo.

    Satexplorer,
    Please don't put your imagination before hand to advertize some series will be shown in Cricket Plus. For example, I got very disappointed that Pak Vs Aus not shown and I have a lot of hope to see an exciting series.
    Please also remove your green color from Pak vs Eng series, because will cricket has never advertises that series. They have only advertized Eng Vs Bang ODI series which is anyways useless.

    Disappointed? wait till ICC World Cup 2011 with a hefty $250.00-$300.00. Does your satellite carry all of the cricket tours in the US...no! DirecTV still #1 for empty all of your pockets.

    Watching free on Ten sports live streaming, but quality is so poor watching and not watching is the same. Willow TV is going to charge $25. It does not make sense not to show on Cricket Plus. Is there any way we can talk to DirecTV?

    if ATN cricket plus is showing, then what is the problem with USA cricket plus? I cannot think of anything other than boycot Pakistan match on USA TV channel.

    Man, this is getting real confusing.
    Now Directv is advertising the CricketTicket 2010 half season as free. See here
    http://www.directv.com/DTVAPP/content/sports/cricket
    Essentially, it looks like the CLT20 is free for all. Still no word on India tour of South Africa. Willow Cricket channel 2024 is showing some matches from England (but not all) and there was no word on SA tour of WI.
    It seems to me that www.willow.tv blockbuster package is the only way of guaranteeing 100% viewership of all games being played from now on.

    Are they going to give some money back those who already paid $300 as a package?

    Well, I just spoke to a CSR at Directv. Initially she said the India tour of SA was removed due to the broadcasters, then she said sometimes the matches get cancelled and then finally she said it might come back. She also said Directv "might" still be working on rights for the Ashes (which I say is BS). Finally, she said cricketplus is not going to carry any of the Pak matches being played in Eng.
    This is the last year I pay money to Directv for cricketplus. Next year onwards, I am only going to subscribe to www.willow.tv

    Satexplorer,
    Please remove your green color from Pak vs Eng series.
    I am also going to subscribe next year from Willow TV internet. I hope they will use more BW in next year and I will have super fast internet connection next year.
