Cricket World Cup 2019 TV Coverage In The U.S. — ‘Willow TV’ On ‘Sling’.

I am NOT getting too excited and getting my hopes up.

Willow, as it did with Vivo IPL 2018, last year, could screw us again, at the last minute.

So, let’s wait and see.

It all has to do with what constitutes STREAMING. Bloody, despicable (Indian) Hotstar, the scummiest company ever, has the STREAMING rights for the 2019 World Cup — in the U.S. (just like it did for Vivo IPL 2018 & 2019).

Willow TV could only show the World Cup 2019 on TV — i.e., not streaming. You had to TRY and watch the World Cup on Hotstar’s pathetic coverage.

But, now Sling and Willow TV are claiming that they will cover the World Cup 2019.

But, keep your options open.

I am LUCKY. I have Sling/Willow TV & Hotstar. So, I am covered. But, I would rather watch on Willow TV that bloody Hotstar.

I will, of course, keep you posted.

So Good To See ‘Alzarri Joseph’ The 22-Year Old West Indian Doing Great Guns In The Vivo IPL — On Debut.

It was beyond a dream start. A wicket with his 1st ball in IPL! Wow. Doesn’t get any better and it was David Warner’s wicket. Impressive.

Then break the record for the BEST BOWLING figures in the IPL — on debut.

And his mother died less than two months ago. Talk about the ups and downs.

Nice unassuming kid. Looks like a great prospect.

His bowling got some stick in the 2nd match and he didn’t take a wicket. But, then he shone with a bat, getting the winning runs in a mammoth runrace. His team seems to adore him. This is all good.

I am pleased. I like him. Something about him. Reminds me of the young, brooding Andy Roberts — who I knew from his days in Hampshire.

Vivo IPL 2019 — First 4-Matches Have Been Scintillating.

I have been watching Vivo IPL 2019 on ‘Hotstar‘ on my Roku.

Watching ANY cricket on ‘Hotstar’ is extremely depressing & frustrating because they show the results in the program description! They can’t help it. ‘Hotstar’ is the most unprofessional and dishonest company in the known Universe.

They also have decided that 23-minutes is the optimum length for a highlights package. Oh, they are not too smart either. Just smart when it comes to dishonesty.

The cricket has been outstanding. Hotstar spoils it.

I have just learnt that the 2019 World Cup will be on Hotstar. Jesus wept. They will totally screw it up.

Vivo IPL 2019 On Roku Is On ‘Hotstart’ & NOT On Willow TV (Sling).

Willow TV did it AGAIN.

Even this morning, on Roku/Sling it was showing upcoming Vivo IPL 2019 matches.

But, this evening they were ALL gone.

Yes, it appears that it all has to do with the definition of ‘streaming’.

Vivo IPL 2019 is available on Willow — BUT not on Roku/Sling!

Luckily I already had Hotstar.

So, now YOU know.

Enjoy.

Already watched the highlights of Match 1. SMILE>

Is Sri Lanka’s Niroshan Dickwella Still ‘Thanking God’, Non-Stop, For His Current Form?

Another example. Note hand is higher. Closer to grill.


Haven’t had a chance to see his over-the-top, near-obnoxious constant crossing of himself of late since he hasn’t been at the crease for long. Just 2-balls in the first T20I against South Africa yesterday. I have always said he should be consistent. He should thank God even when he is out — cheaply. He can’t have it both ways. If he is stupid enough to believe that God helps him score runs, then he also has to accept that God must want him gone when he gets out and has to start walking back.

He was even dropped from the side. He must have been beside himself. I can just see him. On his knees praying.

Poor guy. If he wasn’t so obnoxious he could be quite a decent bugger.

‘Hotstar US’ Is NOT To Be Trusted. $50 Amazon Gift Card Offer Is FAKE.

Hotstar US has NO intentions whatsoever of honoring the $50 Amazon Gift Card Offer!

That they have a dedicated option (press 2) on their Voice Response System just for those calling about the Amazon Gift Card offer is a dead giveaway.

So, this is how their scam works.

They will claim that you subscribed using a PROMO CODE that did NOT include the Gift Card! As far as they are concerned matter closed.

So, you are screwed.

Very dishonest, disreputable company.

They are helping propagate the stereotype (à la Simpsons Appu) that Indians are dishonest. That is why I go out of my way to point out to folks that I am NOT Indian (that all 3 million of the Hindu gods (most of whom are also duplicitous in their own cute ways)).

From what I can see Hotstar US has NO US presence. I was going to file a claim with the ‘Better Business Bureau’. But, you can’t. They are NOT in the US. This was probably another reason that they opted for this scam. It is a STRAIGHT online scam.

Simply put they are nothing but thieving bastards. Stay away from them. Don’t let them scam YOU.
