DTH pay channels are very costly. That too sports channels cost is very high. Most of the Indians watch these sports channels only when live matches of Indian cricket is shown. The Indian Cricket series are shown in various channels Neo Cricket, Star Cricket, ESPN/Star Sports, Ten Sports/Ten Cricket. The problem is subscribing to the correct channel at the beginning of a series and unsubscribe it at the end as we do not watch that channel anymore. If we do not unsubscribe , we get charged when really don’t watch that channel. Tata Sky has come up a good solution: India Cricket ( Channel number 400 costs Rs 365/- per annum)
When some channel starts broadcasting any cricket series with India as one participant it broad casted in “India Cricket” channel too. Even if we do do not subscribe to the official broadcaster( say Neo Cricket), we get to see the Indian matches. At present they are showing Ten Cricket, which telecasts India-SA series.
India plays cricket almost for the whole year and get to watch everything in one channel. When there not Indian cricket series, Neo Cricket will be shows( This is good as Neo cricket has most of the best Indian matches)
Cost: Rs 365/- per year.
But, we are not sure if all world cup matches will be broadcasted. What happens if there are two matches in the same day during world cup.
Even if they just show the Indian matches, this a good deal and we can forget about all other Sports channels which charges exorbitant price.
