Hi Peoples

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?

Thanks muchly

Mark.

Hmmm, there's nothing on the EPG for 8 April, which is when it starts.

just been told by Sky that they are still in discussion for the rights to screen the matches live so keep checking the guide to see if they are successful




Common sense is not as common as you think.

It looks like Sky wont be showing it and are saving money. Sky dont really care about Cricket so dont expect to see this on Sky. if this was golf they would purchase it immediatly.

YouTube has confirmed its first live major sporting deal, announcing today that it will host live Indian Premier League cricket matches in the UK, and casting into doubt the value of British TV broadcast rights.

The YouTube deal involves every country outside the US – a significantly larger scope than reports had suggested. It was thought that YouTube would only stream live matches to countries that did not have TV deals with the IPL.

The two-year deal gives the Google-owned YouTube the exclusive rights to stream IPL matches online, with the two companies splitting revenue from sponsorship and advertising.

sky is crap for cricket... sunday morning they show the highlights of the India V Pakistan semi instead of the final...

& during the 09 - 10 summer instead of showing domestic cricket they put on the Aus V Pakistan games as it is cheaper than sending commentary teams out to our venues to cover it...

They did do ok with the HRV this year though

from sky.

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

This is so poor, especially this close after the World Cup when everyone is in cricket mode, and with multiple Black Caps involved

My suggestion is to use their public customer service channels like Facebook and Twitter to voice your unhappiness

It's not sky's fault they made their offer, it's the BCCI being greedy pricks and no amount of complaining or petitioning will help.

It's up to Sky to go in to negotiations with the interest of their paying customers in mind..

This is one the highest profile and richest cricket tournament in the world, New Zealanders are involved, and it's a very popular game and format.. What more do you need before you let Sky get away with not securing the contract

I think it's bad enough that they show so little NBA and NFL, and don't seem to be after the new ESPN2 Australia channel

Guys, sign the petition:
http://www.petitiononline.co.nz/petition/skytv-wont-show-ipl-on-sky-in-2011-because-they-are-saving-money/99

I am certainly not giving up. Sky cannot ignore its fans and simply not have the IPL on Sky. sign the petition.

If YouTube can get the rights then it be easy for Sky to get the rights.
