Whatever the purpose of this threadis , believe me--the quality is very very good. I am watching it for a while now---they give you 280kbps and 400kbps streaming----whatever suits your connection capacity. Costs a lot, but good video.

Willow TV has been committed to bringing the best international cricket to our customers at the most reasonable prices. We have been working hard to get a Bangladesh Value Pack up for some time, and were only recently able to secure all the necessary rights to do so. We hope to be able to bring similar offerings in 2006 and 2007 through the rights deals we have recently done.

Not really, for reliable video, that comes to 80 bucks for potentially 10 days of cricket. At $8/day that to me is pretty reasonable. I think I'll sign up. My only concern is that I'm paying for September now - what happens if something falls thru? Do I get a refund? Do you know Mascot?

3 ODI in Natwest, 3 ODI and 2 Tests in Sri Lanka---you will get at least 12 days..may be 16. Offcially it should be 16 days...in that sense you are paying just $5 a day. When I bought the premium package...i did not do such calculations though. At 4:45AM on the first day of Lords test--when Bangladeshlive started bufferering from the get go----i went for willow tv right away. When you are hot tempered..200 bucks in nothing . But I am certainly enjoying it.

i think they should have a package for games only in weekends. why should one buy games which he cant watch in weekdays? also there should be lot more flexibility, like i want to buy next 2 bd games now, but they simply dont have that offer. they want to make maximum profit and i want to pay least with best quality

thanks willow.tv
$80 for the whole package is not bad.
i thinks those who are capable of buying the package should buy. that way they'll continue broadcasting BD games in future. otherwise we might have to go back to cricinfo to follow our tigers live.

Most probably they will not broadcast those either.
That way you will not have to spend money at all.

You spent 200 bucks to watch BD matches and then find out you could have the same deal for 80 bucks....It is very important to reassure yourself that you are enjoying it. Otherwise you will be in too much pain.:P:P
