Where to watch live ICC world Cup Cricket 2011

Hello,

Where can I watch ICC world cup cricket 2011 ?

I have an existing cablecom connection, where I can ask for Eurosport2.

But on Eurosport2 , I doubt the commentary would be in English plus they show limited matches.

So what is the best possibility of watch ICC world cup live ?

Are any chances of watching it over the internet by paying some subscription fees online?

Thanks
M

Go to www.myp2p.eu

There will be some free online feeds there. I caught a lot of the recent Ashes series, some in surprisingly good quality.

I tried www.criclive.com

Also if you take the Swisscom connection, one gets nice BBC channels and I recon they r gonna show the worldcup on BBC, well if they can show every single match of IPL, they should WC as well

If the game is on Eurosport 2, find a steam on the internet and play that through your PC speakers. Then if you have one of those boxes that will pause live TV, turn down the volume on your TV and sync it with the English commentary coming out of your PC.

My cablecom box will pause without recording.

You will be a little behind the action, up to a couple of minutes depending on your stream, but I find it's worthwhile to get the English commentary.

And the two sources should stay in sync with each other, if that's what you are asking.

Suppose theres no rush... The group games really don't look too exciting bar one or two matches. Even the England vs India game has now been moved from Eden gardens cos the stadium isn't ready!

Gives us timeto get our viewing sorted

Re: Where to watch live ICC world Cup Cricket 2011

Very useful info, thanks! Looks like both sky uk and eurosport Europe will cover... Have seen increasing cricket coverage from eurosport. First IPL, now I see Caribbean 20-20 and even world cup! Great for us viewers!

The whole first month and 40+ matches will be to decide whether Bangladesh or the West Indies get eliminated. The other seven quarter final spots are pretty much locked in.

Yeah agree, there to get rid if the no hopers... Ireland, Netherlands etc. You're quite right, one spot up for grabs... May end up follow the super 8 in the end. The tournament is just too long...

Re: Where to watch live ICC world Cup Cricket 2011

I have recently watched most of cricket on www.mypremium.tv .... most of the time the it has both Sky and eurosports streams avilable.

Eurosports also offers a web player subscription as well, which has a very good quality with the option to listen the commentary in english.

Re: Where to watch live ICC world Cup Cricket 2011

It looks like Eurosport2 might not be showing the games - the schedule's online for the first two days of the cup (19th and 20th) and no mention of cricket
