Sky Sports has nipped on and pinched away Indian Premier League (IPL Cricket) broadcast rights from ITV, having agreed a three-year deal to broadcast the tournament from 2015.
Viewers will be able to enjoy 60 live matches each year from the world’s richest 20/20 domestic competition, IPL cricket; which takes place in April and May.
The agreement strengthens Sky’s schedule of live year-round cricket, which includes Test coverage – with all England home and away games – the LV County Championship, the NatWest T20 Blast and the Royal London One-Day Cup.
However, the news comes as a blow to free-to-air TV viewers, who again have no live cricket to look forward to without a Sky subscription.
How to watch IPL cricket on Sky Sports from anywhere in the world…
Our UK VPN and Proxy Servers are technically compatible with Sky Sports. Existing Sky Sports customers can use our UK IP address services to access their SkyGo account (or ask for a shot of friends/family member’ login details for Sky Sports) from anywhere in the world.
Another option to watch Sky Sports live is with Day and Week Passes for NOW TV, where you can watch on multiple devices including computers, tablets, smart tv and set-top live streaming boxes such as Apple TV, Roku and NOW TV’s own box.
If you try watch Sky Sports in English-speaking countries such as USA, Ireland, Australia, Canada, Spain, France, Canary Islands, Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Malaysia, Qatar, New Zealand, Turkey, Saudi Arabia, or Dubai you will get a Geo block error. To bypass this and watch all content for all you need is a a Proxy, VPN or VPN Router to overcome location restrictions that would otherwise block you from watching Sky, NOW TV and all other UK TV services.
With a VPN Router you can connect to a separate WIFI zone in your home for the country you want and connect all your devices to it so they get an IP address in that country.
