To Watch the ASIA CUP, find the link in the TV links tab close to the top of this page….
Edit on 13th April w.r.t the India – SA test matches
I am now making my link entries on a new tab on this website called Live TV links.
Please go there on the link in the above line to find the latest links for online streaming cricket and other sports.
This is a new page which will hold updated links (when possible for live transmissions on the web of the sports I like to watch.
Edit on 2nd March w.r.t the India – Australia finals for the CB Series:
These are the links from where I found a direct working link that pulls the TV stream straight into your installed sopcast SW.
Update on Jan 16 2008 for the Third Test Match between India and Australia:
There is a working SOPCAST on http://acricket.com/sop8.htm
Remember to install SOPCAST software and open this in Internet Explorer only.
It’s amazing how some times a big leap can be so satisfying. The same is happening currently for me with the whole thing around SOPCASTS and TVU. For the uninitiated, these are the new methods available online to help video broadcasts on the internet. It started for me with the Twenty20 world cup and now into the India Australia one day series in India. Basically, what happens is that the broadcaster user your upload bandwidth to pass the same thing on to another user. So, not only do you use a lot of download bandwidth, you also use a lot more of your upload bandwidth. I’m wondering when these people are going to block these ports etc. in offices as well.
Anyway, in the mean time, there are lots of guides available on what to do if you want to see live cricket, or live movies, or hundreds of channels live on the internet. I think it is most useful for people outside of native countries who have a lot of bandwidth but not the local programming that they would want. For example all us expats in Singapore or Dubai wanting to watch all the cricket.
Just to start people off, you can go to www.sopcast.com, and for installs:
Also, some of the links working at the time of posting to watch India vs. Australia live are here (please note, have the sopcast player installed before you click on these links)
Most of the info for now came from this blog (to give due credits)
Here is a sample of how the sopcast player looks, with a screenshot of Tendulkar playing in the 3rd one-day against Australia at Chandigarh. Let’s see who wins…
The other sweet and simple way to just have all the instructions and easily watch cricket live online is to go to the Live Cricket Broadcasting Network Site @ http://www.livecbn.com
