Last night I was watching the highlights of Day 1 of an Australia vs. India Test match that I had recorded on Willow last year.

When the first State Farm commercial came on a light bulb went off in my head. I had noticed this, vaguely, with TEN Cricket, and had meant to write about it, but hadn’t because of other distractions and pressures.

TEN Cricket, at least on DISH, of ‘late’ (and I mean the last 6 months) had hardly NO advertisements! Yes, they had their regular commercial breaks but all they showed was plugs for their own programs or DISH commercials. Yes, occasionally a short ad, BUT nothing like what you get with Willow in terms of the (funny but very condescending) State Farm ads, the always compelling XOOM.com ads, MetLife, ‘Indian matrimony‘ and visitor health coverage stuff.

Who did those ads with the cute little baby elephant playing with the kids? I can’t remember. So much for the ‘stickability’ of those Ads!

So that had to be a factor. TEN had to have been suffering financially.

    So do you have any news about ten coming back or will someone take over those games to show in USA?

  2. Satyajit Roy says :

    go to https://www.dittotv.com/dittoPackages.htm
    Ten Cricket is not available in USA, Singapore for this package. Can you please contact Zee network in India to ask to lift the ten cricket restriction in USA.

  3. Raj says :

    • aguruge says :

      Who the heck is ‘Mr. Roy’?
      Not sure what Ten Cricket is playing at. Yes, they appear to hold the broadcast franchise for SL, WI and Ind. home games. But, they don’t appear to be on any North American network or on the Internet.
      So …
      All the best. But, I am confused. ‘Mr. Roy’? Can’t be me. I am NOT Indian. As I always tell people I am NOT good looking enough to be Indian!
      Cheers, Anura
