    I knew I was not eligible for espn3. I guess I need to find alternate ways of finding the games. I need to watch England's attempt at defending the title.

    No one is showing Friends Provident T20 in USA. Also will anyone show SL premium league in USA?

    ESPN3 has it.

    And guys, I request you to write/call/email to ESPN to show the World Cup T20 games on TV (ESPN2 or ESPN Classic). Whatever TV ratings their filler programs draw between 6 am and noon I'm sure top level cricket can do better, thanks to the millions of ex-pat cricket fans in the country. We just have to get our voices heard. We want cricket on TV in HD, not streamed in poor quality over the internet!

    I don't see in this thread anything mentioned about who will be showing in USA tours to Australia, NZ and RSA. They used to be shown on Willow Cricket. Will they be showing these tours this year as well? Do they still have rights of cricket from Australia, New Zealand and South Africa?

    I fully agree with your thinking. And I wish the logic were true.

    However, I suspect ESPN will see it differently - and the filler programs will probably rate just as highly (some people will watch anything if its on ESPN - hence televising sports-talk radio shows, etc!), while the infomercials pay for themselves whereas cricket doesn't. More important will be trying to line advertisers for ESPN to cash in on during the cricket. (I've followed years of attempts to get Aussie Rules football onto ESPN instead of niche channels or internet streaming - and heard all the excuses.) Sorry to be the downer on this.

    I thought Willow had 4 year contracts from those boards - so assuming they continue to operate as in the past two years, they should have two years to go on those contracts. We've all speculated they will fold or morph into something else, but so far it hasn't happened. Maybe they will limp along.

    Hopefully they'll continue their trend from this northern UK summer of bringing in crisp, clear, unadultered raw feed from the source instead of cable rebroadcasts of the games as shown in India.

    The point is espn3 should be available to all espn subs As part of tv everywhere & not tied to ISP deals
