    Satexplorer,
    The USA telecast for the following tours are missing in your first page. Please let me know the reason.
    i) Sri Lanka tour of Zim - I thought Ten Cricket shows all home games from Zim
    ii) West Indies tour of NZ
    iii) India tour of NZ
    iv) Australia tour of South Africa

    Assistance needed...

    Currently, I stream dish IPTV and Willow TV on a Roku box. However, I was furious yesterday when Willow interrupted the England-New Zealand test match to go to the IPL match at 10:30. Do either DirecTV or dishTV offer two Willow channels when two matches are being played at the same time?

    In addition, I am looking for a satellite company that airs the sky sports introduction, lunchtime interview, and teatime segments as they do on Willow YouTube channel? (Neither Willow TV or dish IPTV air these segments on the Roku. Usually, they revert to IPL highlights.)

    Cheers.

    With Roku and WILLOW ONLINE subscription, you actually have option to pick the match you watch. Each match shows up in a carousel view and you can pick any match to watch. Dish satellite is same as Dishworld online, live channel streaming and you get what they transmit. Good luck on finding Sky sports pre and post match chats.

    That's part of the problem I am facing. The Willow ROKU channel pales in comparison to the DishWorld ROKU channel. The DishWorld channel streams at 3.6mb, while the Willow channel looks as if it is 1.5 mb. However, the DishWorld channel switched from the ENG-NZ test match to the IPL at 10:30 EST, which means I missed 3:30 of the test match.

    When this occurs and someone is watching it on satellite, do they give the viewer the option of which match to watch?

    Tomorrow there are two IPL games, so no Eng vs. NZ for us.

    So no satellite offers the ENG-NZ test match today? What do both DirecTV and DishTV do when there are two simultaneous matches? If they don't give the viewer a chance to choose, I may have to stay with WillowTV online. That's how I am watching the ENG-NZ test match this morning.

    Yes - the Willow online subscription is the only way to be able to have a choice of games to watch when matches clash. For 2-3 years, Willow Channel has simply chosen a higher-priority game to show on the Willow channel on DirecTV/Dish - and if you wanted the other match, you were out of luck. Its only in the last month that Willow acquired NEO USA and now has 2 "channels" on DISH, although it seems they always show the same thing.

    I don't have experience with Willow on Roku, but spent a bunch of time streaming it from an iPad/iPod with a HDMI adapter plugged into my TV. The feeds from willow.tv (possibly what you're getting on Roku) were sub-standard, but the online service gives the chance to watch thru the Willow channel on youtube.com. This gave a much higher picture quality that was half-way-between SD and HD picture from the satellite provider. If you have the willow online subscription, you might want to try the feed from youtube.com/willow before giving up.

    At least we only have 4 IPL games left, the next test may get more coverage. Hopefully 712 will remain in HD after the end of the tournament.

    Thanks for all the responses. Now, one final question. Do either DishTV or DirecTV require an additional dish to receive the cricket matches?

    For Dish, you need sattlite 118 to receive the international packages. So, yes you need 1000 plus sattlite to receive both American and international packages on the same dish. If you have only American package, you need additional dish to receive international package. Cricket pack is part international setup.

    Finally IPL crap was over. Hope BCCI will close down the IPL.

    I doubt they'll do that, I just wish Willow would stop giving it precedence over everything else, and the wall to wall replays.

    Anyway, a good summer ahead.

    I thought I was the only one who felt that way! I wish - but will never happen. Hopefully it (and its incarnations) wont expand further to fill even more of the year.

    I never liked IPL. I did not watch the final fully. I knew it would be a fixing game.

    Today Dish removed Ten Cricket from their lineup. Bye bye Ten cricket. Now only Willow to watch live cricket.

    this is a stupid decision. Now we will be watching 1/2 amount of cricket. No more cricket from WI, SriLanka, Pakistan and Zim

    SatExplorer,
    There are lot of questions. Who is going to show cricket that was planned to be shown on Ten Cricket? Are willow going to have more than one channel? We are going to miss WI v Ind v Sri ODIs plus many more games.
    Now you need to update your page.
