Hi Guys,

 

Does anyone know how to watch the T20 (Aus vs SL) match tonight through streaming? I have got DNS4ME, but not sure where to gain access. Happy to pay a reasonable fee. Many thanks in advance.

 

(Non-SKY options only please)

The dns4me services page lists Willow Cricket and Livesport.tv as 2 that they support that air cricket. I have tried neither but they might be worth a shot.

Thanks Sidefx and Apsat!

 

Cric Australia live pass unfortunately works only on Google and Apple devices. They didn't seem to have anything for Windows folk like me.

 

But I was able to buy Sling TV (just US$10 for 1 month sport-only subscription..(how cool is that!!!)). They also have a US$80/year sport-only subscription which is amazing value for money!

 

...and the last two overs of the match was simply fantastic! Unbelievable ending!

Does anyone know what's the best streaming option (other than Fanpass) for the NZ vs SA cricket series?

Cric Australia live pass is only for phones, it is not for TVs or Laptops as that market is controlled by Channel Nine.

 

 

 

As an aside will the days of cheap subscriptions for sports from services in countries different to the source country eventually end? If more people start to watch online or stream then will the provider/owner of the sport move to a worldwide global price?

Looks dodgy to me.  There's no Geo unblocking required and the T&Cs say you need legal rights to the content already.  Which would mean you'd need to have Sky Sports, in which case why would you need this.  So it's pretty much pirated, right?

Not sure whether it is pirated or not, sorry. But I don't get the legal rights part. I understand Sky may be the only company that has the right to air it on TV within NZ but how on earth can Sky tell a private citizen in NZ that he/she have no right to watch something that is available on the Internet?! If yes, that means Sky can dictate to us what we can or can not watch on the web? That seems so ludicrous.

Where did you find that deal?  I went to sling.tv and the had the $20, $25, and $40 packages, plus the addon packages (like World Cricket), but no $10 standalone sports package.

 

I signed up for the $20 pack + World Cricket but all they have is highlights packages, and not for any NZ games. 

 

Am I missing something obvious (other than that NZ aren't playing right at this minute)?

1. Sky hate isn't a fact

 

2. Get facts right, then comment

 

 

 

Cricket NZ sell the rights, they dictate who can watch what in NZ. Sky is just the conduit

LoL, gotta love it. NZ Cricket has no right to dictate to me what I watch through the Internet. Nanny state much?

If you go to the following link and select the World Sport tab, it would take you to the US$10/month or the US$80/year deals. All live cricket matches are also shown in addition to highlights (i.e. whatever is broadcasted by Willow TV) and that's how I was able to watch SL vs Aus but NZ team doesn't feature in that channel unfortunately.

As already explained. And no, not nanny state, reality, unless you want cheap and/or illegal

Is that like Apple not wanting you to buy 'their' products in the pub from the person who they don't let sell 'their' products?
