You have to subscribe to Neo Cricket it is 15$ month ch#713 on Dish
Now willow cricket scheduled does have IPL listed
Thanks for quick reply. Does that mean willow stream ipl matches on Directv as well? How do we know streaming will be broadcasted in hd or sd? Sorry for the dumb question, because I dont see any update on directv program guide.
Directv and Dish willow feed are same and that will be in SD as far I am concern no official word on HD yet
Very confused about what to subscribe to on Dish to be able to watch the IPL games. Neo? Willow? Both?
It seems Neo sells broadcasting business in US to Willow TV. See the below link
You can buy cricket package for $19.99 per month (if you are with Dish) that includes NEO, TEN and Willow..with DirecTv, you just get Willow Channel for $14.99 per month
Suddenly Willow's New logo pop up on Neo Cricket Channel now
OK, I went ahead and signed up for the cricket pack. Sure miss that nice HD from last year's IPL!
The SD channels look so bad in comparison.
Willow this afternoon just sent an email to online subscribers announcing their IPL 2013 coverage. Online coverage for all games will be in HD, according to the email.
Yes, their SD channel on DISH/DirecTV appears to be carrying most/all games, from what we can see on listed schedules. Maybe WillowPlus/Neo will show them also at the same time - who knows?
Their streaming feed online is in HD, and has been very high quality the last few months. Live coverage is in 720p, and from an ipad or iPhone with HDMI connector to a HD TV, looks much much better than a SD channel from DirecTV (altho not quite as good as a HD channel from DirecTV). The recent India-Australia test series was also totally uninterrupted from the source - only Willow's own inserted commercials broke up the otherwise flawless coverage.
You could try that also - although its an additional $15 a month on top of the subscription at DISH or DirecTV. You also have no DVR functionality on streaming feeds.... they offer replays for later consumption, but those are often at lower resolutions, or wont play on mobile devices.
Recently moved to Houston, TX and would like to watch desi cricket action. Could anyone recommend the better option out of the two: Dish or Direct for cricket? (involving India including IPL)
Welcome to the neighborhood. Definitely DISH for cricket. Between Willow and TEN Cricket you are pretty much covered. Directv does not have anything other than Willow.
Watching the first IPL game now on Dish's Willow channel. I've gotta say, the SD picture is surprisingly good quality, even when horizontally stretched to fit a 65" plasma.
Willow updated their website that now IPL is available in HD on all major TV providers!
Well, if Dish is one of them, I'd sure like to know how.
Willow website shows that Dish also part of the list, but I didn't find anything in dish website. May be we can contact dish customer support to get more info.
I can see where they say Willow has now replaced Neo on the cable companies, and so WIllow and IPL 2013 is now available on Comcast and the other cable cos as well as DirecTV and Dish. But I don't see HD mentioned anywhere.
Do you have a link?
Is the IPL shown on Neo Cricket channel on Dish? If so and if the quality is same as the Willow channel I would get Neo rather than the cricket pack since Neo Cricket channel is only $14.99/Mo.
Thanks in advance!
Today they showed in both the channels. The quality are same.
Thanks buddy! Appreciate your quick response!!
I will then go ahead and order Neo channel on Dish.
