Hi, I just got an email from "Willow TV" that they have started a 24 hour cricket channel on Dish Network and Direct TV. This will be the most desirable channel for millions and millions of south east asia cricket fans especially since almost ALL the cricket action around the world is shown on "Willow TV". This includes the "Indian Premier League" played every year and followed by milions. Additionally, the "Cricket World Cup" is coming up in Feb/March 2011 where all the top cricket nations of the world will be participating. Can this channel be added to Verizon Fios line up as a subscription channel or as part of the south indian channels package? Thanks.

Guys, any update on this? I was at my friend's place yesterday - they have directv and this 24 hour cricket channel is already part of their package - enjoyed the "ashes" coverage !! Are we any closer to getting this on Verizon FIOS?

With ICC world cup starting on Feb-19th, it is very essential for Verizon to provide Willow TV on FIOS. I am already considering switching to dish and I am sure there will be lot of people who will consider this.

Hope it'll be a HD channel, the Willow TV quality during the 2007 WC sucked!

I just saw their website and it states they are going to show worldcup in HD. Worldcup is just a month away now.
