I'm looking through Skywatch for April and I can't find any of the IPL 2011 matches (that's cricket I'm talking about) on Sky Sports. Does anyone know if some/any/none of the IPL will be broadcast?
Common sense is not as common as you think.
Unfortunately we have not been able to secure the rights to the IPL this year.
We believe we have made a fair and reasonable offer for the rights but the BCCI has decided to not accept that offer. In a case like this we feel that for the long term benefit of our subscribers (and in order to run a successful business too) we need to say enough is enough and that we cannot make a deal on this occasion.
Once again I am very sorry that this has happened with regard to the IPL as it is a competition we have enjoyed bringing to our subscribers in the past and I remain hopeful that we may be able to salvage some sort of a deal over the coming days
