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, 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.
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.
Willow TV did it AGAIN.
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.
Already watched the highlights of Match 1. SMILE>
