Who said it was below value? Or was SA too high a value? Where are other providers that do sport steaming, or FTA TV to pick it up?

I know its trendy to bang Sky here, but its competition, so where is it? Sky has seen competition take other events, thats competition, which everyone says Sky needs, yet
they still get banged on. Some on here said the other day that Fanpass was about the same price as similar overseas offerings but NZ TV is too fragmented. Its now fragmented
as others have stepped into the market to give competition, exactly what most here have demanded. I've got Sky, had it for years and am getting rid of it, but the facts need
to be on the table, not the emotiveness of Sky bangers IMHO. The competition that most here asked for is here, so the TV market is for all these to compete in.

In an unprecedented move CSA will provide cricket fans living in New Zealand free access to the remaining two one-day internationals between South Africa and New Zealand after Sky Television failed to secure the rights for the series, leaving fans fuming.

 

Cricket fans living in New Zealand will be able to watch the second and third ODIs live via web streaming on CSA's website, www.cricket.co.za. The service will be free of charge to fans living in New Zealand only.

For those interested. Its working perfectly via the website:
Game starts in 10 minutes. SA vs NZ, 2nd ODI. 

http://cricket.co.za/

Can't believe SA give it to us for free.
Shame on Sky.

Working perfectly for me. 

Make sure you not using any geo-unlocking services.

The news article said this will work in NZ only.

Had trouble loading the site, like above
Eventually the site did load, but I can't see the link to the live stream? Does anyone have the 'deep link' ?

Strange. Just tried loading it on a second PC and it won't load.
A second tab also not working. 

Seems I was lucky to open the page when I did.

It's air playing very nicely from my Mac to my Apple TV. It's not Netflix quality and seems a low frame rate but it's certainly watchable.

Yes definitely not Netflix quality, despite running at 720p.
Can't seem to get it to work via Chromecast. Saying that, its probably not a good idea otherwise I'm going to be up all night watching this.

Looks like they have it set to private, so doesn't come up in searches. Also by the looks means you can't find it on the iPhone/iPad app, which would of been good to airplay from

Edit: it actually works from my iPad using the direct link viewing in browser, wasn't loading on my phone. AirPlay is blocked by the looks though, but mirroring the iPad works.
