Has it been announced on their website? ESPN-Star also holds the right for all ICC events so if ESPN360 wanted I guess they could broadcast the U19 World Cup in January and the World T20 as well. Members in USA should recommend them to do so using the feedback form

Revenue would come like any other TV offerings, through ads. Just because they don't show ads now; doesn't mean they will keep it that way.

Its wonderful news that ESPN360 ventured into cricket. I believe their earlier trial with BD vs ZIM series was to test and gauge audience response; as well as to see how many viewers they get. Undoubtedly, they saw positive response as far as number of viewers are concerned; which is why they are probably pursuing with full rights for US online webcast.

Neaah! You know what?! During the BD-Zim series this Oct-Nov period, we managed to watch all the other sport events that ESPN360 have the full rights of, as well. So I don't think anything is going to change.

So চোরাকারবারীইইইই ইইই is still on.

Those of you that watch cricket using ESPN360, I need some help. I've AT&T DSL service with 6mps connection. I register myself with ESPN. However, whenever I click on a link to watch either live or replay, a window pops up but I don't see any video or hear any sound. Do any of you know what might be wrong? Any help is appreciated.
