Its Yahoo now joining the cricket live streaming market niche besides willow.tv and cricinfo.com. Watching matches on TV Channels may not be a big deal for cricket popular nations like subcontinent, UK and Australia but for North America it always has been struggle for the cricket fans to find the TV channels or live streaming options for each series.
Willow.TV has been popular and consistent in live streaming serving for so many years probably from year 2000 as far as I know. Limitation – Willow.tv only works on a PC and Internet Explorer only. Dish Network or Direct TV sometimes based on popularity of series shows these as pay-per-view (PPV) events. DishNetwork’s Zee sports Americas shows only matches played by India in India.
Looks like Yahoo wants to take advantage of this situation and as its video syndication head –Satish Menon– announced Yahoo will be putting videos of live cricket match clippings soon.
See the video of this talk from newteevee crew that interviewed Yahoo’s Satish Menon.
We will have a live scorecard with ball-by-ball commentary and when there is a significant event such as a 4 or 6 or somebody getting out, then, the video clip of that even (1 minute or less) will show up next to that event description in the ball-by-ball commentary.
