    I dont know about you guys but I havent been able to see ANY of the warm up games so far. Whats up with that? I bought the PPV, paid 120 bucks. talked to the lady while getting it and she said that i would be able to see the warm up games but I havent seen any so far. I called DISH again and some guy said that the warm up games would not be shown. SO what's the deal? can we or can we not see the warm up games?

    I wouldn't want to contradict a CSR ... but that is the way I understand it to work. It is always possible that I'm wrong.

    Hey guys, I just noticed Willow has only games of India listed in warm up matches so it makes sense that Dish did not show Feb 12 games, so hopes are alive and most likely Ind vs Aus will be shown at 4 am and hopefully in HD!

    This being weekend, I dont expect dish reps in the forum. Otherwise we could have got some definitive response.

    Hope dish covers it as willow.tv is showing live.

    The only items I can find in the EPG start with the opening ceremonies on Thursday (channel 454 HD, channel 455 SD). Nothing is listed before then.

    BTW: The Willow Cricket channel (582) is in free preview at the moment.

    Two reasons why it should be on dish (the warm up game)

    1. willow.tv has only india warm up games and its basically the same package the dish is providing.

    2. There is a hd ppv event on channel 454 that starts at 4:00 a.m. Of course I get only a white screen with dishHD network right now. But I hope the 4:00 a.m. thing is the real match.

    The "HD PPV Sports" is not an event. It is an "off air" period for the channel. (The same goes for the "PPV Sports" programs on the SD channels.)

    The World Cup events appear in the EPG as "ICC W C", with the first event being "ICC W C: Opening Ceremony" on Thursday at 7am ET. The ceremony telecast will be repeated on Friday at 9am ET. Games begin on Saturday.

    582 Willow is currently airing the Australia vs India warm up match.

    Each event has a number, for example "ICC W C: India vs. Bangladesh" live on Saturday at 3:30am ET has the number "98271" in the EPG. Any replays of that match should have the same number and still be available.

    Being sold as a package ($129 now or $149 if you wait) you should get all the matches and all of the replays through the end of the tournament. If you buy an individual match you should be able to watch that match any time it airs.

    1.Im getting only 2 days in EPG but im able to set the timer for the opening ceremony...does it mean that i would be able to see the PPV of the world cup?
    2.How to get extended EPG for more than 2 days?
    3.Will the HD quality be the same with the internet streaming of willow tv and Dish Network?could you plis clarify on this?

    though some of them is not related to this thread, a reply would be more than helpful..

    Thanks
