Guys, I have cable right (no way to watch matches except leech on internet sites) now and I was wondering if Dish TV is the way to go to watch cricket matches in the US.Do I have to buy special packages and deals to watch them with Dish TV too !

Any suggestions ?

Usually channel 457(PPV sports) and 576(Zee sports) cover most of the cricket series. I am pretty sure you need to subscribe these channels as they are not included in the basic package. BTW, Zee sports will cover the upcoming India vs Australia series.

For Dishn Network, I wouldn't recommend it for cricket because it only has Zee Sports showing cricket now and mostly it shows ICL or Football/Soccer. From what I heard though I think Direct TV would be the best because it shows most of the matches and has cricket related programs and stuff.

If I were you I would do some more research of who shows more cricket, better quality, service and etc. At the end it all depends on your decision. Good Luck!!!!
