    rajmarie - Do you have multiple dish receivers? If so, can you confirm if WC is showing rented on 455 on all the receivers? In 2011 - dish enabled WC only on one receiver (against their own PPV policy). That time dish had bought the rights directly, so as 2015 is an ESPN production - I am hoping it will be enabled on all the receivers at home.

    Can't help here. Only 1 receiver 722k.

    But I can use tv2 output to watch on other tv. So if you got hopper and Joey all on that should also work. 2nd receiver don't know.

    Suggestion is not to order this from the box but via csr or phone. That way ppv is approved for your account and all receivers work.

    I have a question for dish expert. On channel 455 the event is listed as rented but the event is locked and asked me to enter my pin. Channel 456 don't show rented but it's not locked.

    Locked unlocked is a small icon that comes on the info screen. Anybody else have this also

    Finally ordered the event via CSR. She confirmed it will be available on all receivers (hopefully....). Will go home and check. Have 2 Hopper/Joey setups.

    Reminded me of 2007 - when we paid $200, India lost to Bangladesh and was out in round-1. But that "investment" eventually paid off in 2011.

    Only 4 warm up matches, same lineup shown in every EPG worldwide. All you need is a ticket to the non-televised game.

    Did you check channels 455, 456, 457, 458?
    Dish new offer says get any South Asia package and add the tournament for 99¢. No warmup matches announced either. I'm not sure about ESPN. Warmup matches are region locked I guess.

    STAR India showing all games in HD, SD & 4K.

    Jay Price theme song in 2011 isn't part of 2015 ICC Cricket World Cup. Awesome starter wasn't it?

    It shows "rented" on channel 455, 456 and 457 on all my receivers. Also 99 cent offer is only for new activations.

    Back on March 23, 2011. "It's a big day for cricket fans in the US, and we're thrilled to be the network offering this passionate and under-served audience more cricket coverage than ever before," Damon Phillips, vice president, ESPN3.com, said in a statement. "We're removing the traditional Pay-Per-View barrier and making these world class events available to millions of fans." It's 2015 the only ICC Event is the ICC Cricket World Cup officially in Pay-Per-View.

    Exactly. I mentioned how Espn by saying that they are doing PPV because they don't want the channel paying people pay for this was wrong as they already paid 5 years earlier or more.

    Its just their way of filling their pockets. Cannot stop myself from ordering this PPV.

    Issue with cricket broadcasting in US is purely a demand issue. There is not enough demand for advertisers. ESPN has been showing ICC tournaments on watchespn for free in the past 3-4 years. They got no revenue. WC is a great way for them to get revenue.

    I know ESPN is rich and is owned by Disney (which is extremely rich), but they have to run Cricket broadcasting as a division and have to break even at the least - otherwise they will simply abandon it.

    Prices have come down for the consumer (even though we all wished it was free) and ESPN does have a part in that - otherwise Dish would have charged us at least $150 for the package.

    Good point! I remember the following -

    2003 WC on Dish = $250
    2007 WC on DirecTV = $200
    2011 WC on DirecTV = $150
    2015 WC on Dish = $99

    Surely the demand for Cricket has increased in USA over the past 12 years and the prices have been going South. I am really glad that ESPN acquired the rights for this World Cup....good for us here in US!

    Satexplorer — Perhaps I missed this, but was there a discussion on why DirecTV was not showing the matches (through ESPN of course) in the manner Dish was showing the matches?

    Cheers.

    I ordered Dish PPV last night, my guide is NOT showing channels yet. Is this normal? I hoping it shows up before the game so I don't have to call CS.
