    Dish add is showing the same price for both HD and SD version. I guess you get both streams for 99. The problem is one of the HD channel mentioned by dish is not listed in the guide.

    Also no mention of warm up games and pre and post match shows.

    Are Dish and ESPN offering the same content in their 2015 World Cup packages? Do both include practice matches and replays or does the Dish offer not include practice matches and replays?

    ESPN ultimately holds the rights and is using Dish as a distribution platform. So my guess is that the content should be similar.

    Dish CRS on chat confirmed that it will be both in SD and HD. Also ESPN is only allowing 1 user at a time - so Dish might be a better choice.

    Channel 455 or any other channel has any information related to this WC so far. The warm up games are just 3 days away. Schedules should have been populated by now imo

    Not to mention UFC fight is schedule for Feb 28 at 10pm. How dish will carry HD game at the same time then.

    No information yet on the channel guide - but that's not new for these special PPV events.

    Dish can easily uplink new HD channels for PPV - so UFC fight will not have any impact.

    Not too sure about warm-up games though - ESPN might end up showing it only on its streaming service - but they won't gain much from it - so my guess is it will be on Dish but will probably have to wait till the weekend to figure out.

    Dish. Have multiple receivers at home and so slightly easier to watch in the night without any dependency on the internet. You and others?

    Thanks for your reply and information, Amit. Anything you can add on replays? ... Do Dish's PPV services typically include replays of completed events? ... this can give the flex. to watch some matches during the day (in the US).

    Dish is advertizing it on both HD and SD: http://www.mydish.com/pay-per-view/sports-and-events/cricket

    HD Channels: 455 and 469. 469 still needs to be uplinked (at least as of yesterday night).

    The news from India is that India v/s Pakistan will be broadcasted in 4K in India - making it the first cricket match ever in 4K. Last year FIFA world cup was broadcasted in 4k in the Japanese market.

    I hate the fact that I pay for ESPN, Willow, Dishworld, One Sports etc. etc.

    And now I have to fork out $100 for the World Cup.

    I will do it, but I cancel as much of the other stuff as I can, at least till the Ashes.

    I got an email from Dish (promo) that says they have both HD and SD for 99.99 with an ORDER NOW link. It is confirmed they will have HD. Not sure about warm up games though..
