Default TV coverage of WI series!

Does anybody based in the uk know what channel the series will be televised on. I am hoping it will be on one of the sky digital channels!

As far as I know Sky won't be showing Bd vs WI series. They will be showing SL vs SA series on sky digital this month and also the Ashes.

Default Star TV in Asia

Star TV of Asia (ESPN India channel) will provide live coverage of Bangladesh vs West Indies series, so there maybe some not-so-common sports channel in UK could provide live coverage.

Star Sports/ ESPN is under the same company as Sky Sports in UK, and Sky only have the rights to what is shown on Star Sports/ ESPN in UK.

So if Sky Sports is not showing it, then no one else will!!!

Default KBS provides the matches in the US.

For equipment and packages info call:
1-800-333-DISH

Nothing there right now except for the news in the India tests.

As far as I know, Dishnetwork (ie KBS) only gets India tours and some paki tours; some of tri and all the multi nation meet. The good thing about this is when BD played India in 1st Test Dishnet showed it and I had it taped. They showed it because india was the opponent

In US dishnet is the best for cricket. They will have the WC03, they had WC99.

thanks, thinking of giving cable the boot. but it doesn't sound like we can watch BD outside of the WC anytime soon. whatever happened to homeviewbangladesh showing btv coverage - that seems to have dissapeared.

Sometimes SETmax show the Bangladesh matches in US. I have seen the Bangladesh-SL test match last july. TV asia also shows cricket occassionaly. All these channels are on Dish net work and you have to pay for these channels. But you can also get rid of them once matches are over and also get connected when there are matches on. There no connection fees.

SetMax wont be showing any more Bd games. They were part of the old contract of Sony tv and BCB. But since then BCB has tendered the contract to ESPN/ Star Sports.
