Vivo IPL 2018 On “Hotstar” Is NOT For True Cricket Lovers!

Pictures off my 47″ TV using my Google Pixel 2 phone.




Vivo IPL 2018 coverage on “Hotstar” is NOT for serious cricket fans. It is basically a series of clips.

The HIGHLIGHTS package is 17-minutes! You can see that on picture 2.

17-minute.

I don’t even like 30-minute highlights on Willow. You just need to see more of the game to get the context and feel.

In 17-minutes all you get is ‘crash-bang-wallop’.

Very disappointed.

With T20 matches I like to see all 240-balls. A T20 match lasts about 3:45 hours and on Willow you could, most times, watch a whole game.

Moreover, they blast captions such as “CSK’s Great Escape …” all over the place. So, you know CSK must have won.

Very poor. Very poor. I am crushed.

It is “OK” for FREE, BUT I am NOT going to pay $9.99.

So, you have now been warned.



Update: Sunday, April 8, 2018

Today, when I went back to “Hotstar” I found at least one full-length match (i.e., Match #2) and Match #3 playing LIVE.

A supposed full replay of Match #1 was 10-hours of the ‘IPL Auction’.

I will try and check the full matches out tonight.

If they do have Full Matches — that would be GOOD and I will retract my statements.

But, as of now, I need to do more research.

“Hotstar” is a MESS. It is not structured to suit the serious cricket watcher.

Obviously run by young, excitable ADHD Indians on too much ganja
