    See thread below re Australia v India on Satellite TV (US).

    Sony TV (a subscription channel available via Sky Digital and possibly elsewhere) may be showing it and, if so, may offer a 1 or 2 month package (likely to cost 20 or 30 approx) rather than requiring a 12-month subscription.

    If you've got Sony TV via Sky Digital (it's channel 802 or something similar) press info for the phone number and give them a ring to find out the latest.

    Annoying, isn't it, especially as Sky are going to show Australia v New Zealand - a far less appealing series in my view.

    As mentioned in the other thread, they did pick up rights to Pakistan-India at the last minute, but it seems unlikely this time.

    I think they picked them up there about a week before the First ODI - pushing it a bit to hope for them to grab them a day and a half before the First Test here!
    They always show all Australian home series - they've got some contract with C9 - but aside from that (and the England games, obviously) it's a bit of a lottery what they show. Though they usually show home West Indies series.

    I am in US but others who are constantly in touch with SONY say that they are just waiting for the supreme court decision.

    It seems supereme court has told Zee to lay off for a bit and money matters will be settled later.

    So as of now, DD has India rights, Sony has int'l distribution rights, Ten sports to provide the feed.

    I think SONY will do it in UK, we are stranded here in North America, coz the sat company most likely won't let SONY in US show cricket, or ask $200 for Pay-Per-View

    ..really really frustrating...it sucks

    So does that mean that Dish Network will show it on pay per view or nobody is showing the matches here in North America?

    I've just phoned Sony (08700 7669 248). Still waiting for confirmation - they're open until 11pm tonight.

    Sehwag's post sounds encouraging though.

    Just for you, NavUK, I've tried them again and they're "currently experiencing a high volume of calls, so please try again later".

    As you mention above, you'd assume they'd want to give themselves time to get a decent number of subscriptions, but as far as I know the court case is still open so I guess they're still not in a position to confirm.
