    True, but they wont show any indian or pakistani matches on 582 because majority of their costumers in US are desi. But this is clearly a rip off...they have the rights to ICC and we have paid for the package that carries the willow channel 582 but they charged us 130 anyways because they don't wanna show that event without getting more money.

    This is like paying to get HBO or ShowTime and on top of that you have to pay extra to watch sopranos or another hit show/movie.

    I had the same problem with multiple receivers. I called and they said that's how it was. When I asked them who they were to choose my location for viewing and why I wud have to compromise my viewing experience (have a 105 inch projector screen in my basement :O ), they pointed out that it was a "special" event that they had paid a lot for! (no fcc crap for me fortunately!!!). I asked them if this is how all PPVs are to which the CSR replied in negative. I then told them that I would file a lawsuit against them for being fleecing the customer and not communicating this at the point of sale.I kept repeating my cheating, fleecing, lawsuit a few times and the CSR then said I could speak to a supervisor. I waited for a few minutes and she came back and said the match was available on the other receiver as well. Just like that! I couldn't believe it :). Now its available on both my receivers because the supervisor approved it as a goodwill (yeah right!). Guess all of you with the same problem should all call again :).

    i thought there was some promotion where if you sign of for dish and one of the south asian mega packs, or something like that, then the icc world cup 2011 was free. Unfortunately, I can no longer find information about this online for some reason, and the dish website is hard to navigate. Note: this is not the vonage promotion. Does anyone have any info on this?

    The only offer I can find is the Vonage offer, which also required a South Asian package.
