Cricket World Cup & English Premier League Football

Post by Wannaretireearly » Mon Feb 07, 2011 4:11 pm

Folks,
I am an an expat from the UK. I miss the sports!!
I've tried (expensive) subscriptions to Dish etc. to get Fox Soccer Channel. Never been satisfied for what I get.

I want to be able to watch Cricket World Cup (starting next week). Anyone using an online service to recommend?

Bonus question: I would pay up to $100 a month to find a service where I can get Skysports service (or similar) beaming into my house. This would give me all the cricket/soccer I would ever need. Anyone know of a service like this???

Thanks!

Have you tried foxsoccer.tv? It seems to cover football and rugby but not cricket.

I've never been a fan of watching sports on my PC but it might be better than the alternative. It's only $15.00 a month

Try myp2p.eu
It probably is not legal but I have occasionally used it to get my cricket fix.
