Re: Where to watch live ICC world Cup Cricket 2011

I cant get sky in my new place as its a listed building (no dishes allowed) and so I am desperate to be able to access cricket and rugby live via the interet.

This site : www.flashsportstreams.com (as mentioned above) looks good but a few questions:
  1. Is swiss internet fast (in the UK the advertised speeds are never the speeds you get in reality and buffering during live sport would be very annoying indeed)
  2. Is the picture fairly good quality ie: would it look ok on a 22 inch HD computer screen?
  3. Finally, do UK computers work in Switzerland (I was told this weekend in a London electronics shop that TVs dont work)
At least this thread has made me despair slightly less about not being able to get Sky Sports via a dish!

Thanks guys.

Hi Mike

You can install zattoo (google it) in your laptop or computer, make an account and watch most of the UK channels (like iTV 4..I think it has brought the broadcasting rights for the icc wc) with quite a good resolution. If you get a high speed internet connection then you can have uninterrupted streaming. Eurosports has brought the broadcasting rights for the event but not sure wheteher they will telecast all the matches.

zattoo is a good call as is: http://www.myp2p.eu/index.php?part=sports for live streaming and the latter may show non England games live.

You can catch live action of all matches on eurosportplayer.
15 Euro for a yearly subscription.

I watched the last ICC event, T20 Cup, good uninterrupted feed with English commentary. May not be your favorite commentary team though ;-)
Hope to hear the games live on testmatchsofa :-)

ITV had the IPL but I see no reference to it having world cup rights at all. Wikipedia says Sky........

Re: Where to watch live ICC world Cup Cricket 2011

Fabulous news boys and girls!

All matches will be streamed live in high quality on www.espnplayer.com

The subscription for the entire tournament is only 15 Euros!

Yes I know you all want to slobber on my hand in gratitude but i must humbly refuse as i'm not the touchy feely sort

However, I must exploit the good vibes that are sure to come my way from divulging that fantastic piece of news by enlightening you with a delicious quote from Alan Johnson - a wise albeit fictional man -

"Tonight should be a free-fire idea zone. Watch a DVD, eat some pizza, each other. I’m serious. F**k a chicken if that’s what it takes. Watch a chicken a horse. What? You think the guys who invented Google sat around watching Trumpton?"

I am using www.espnplayer.com and quality of streaming is just OK although it is a paid stream.

Re: Where to watch live ICC world Cup Cricket 2011

Am using espnplayer too. The stream quality is awesome and surprisingly there is no lag what so ever. I checked with folks back home to confirm that. I stream to my 32'' LED and it doesn't pixalate. Probably you need to change the bit rate in the player window to "High". I have a 20 Mbps connection, don't know if that matters.

MrFab, thanks again for the Fab link.

Can we start a discussion here...

For me this is India's world cup to loose! What do you all say?

Yes, did I mention that we also won World Cups in 2010, 2003 and, lest anyone forgets, 1966?

Its really great to see a small team performing so well against a favorite winner and giving England a tough time.

I know that you can't judge a performance based on one innings (i.e. whithout having seen the other team bat/bowl), but really, I don't think England are going to win this one.

Good job I can support Holland based on birth rights...
