As we first learned back in late January, ESPN will be streaming the cricket to Stateside audiences – even those without a cable subscription. It’s all part of a move to boost the popularity of the sport in the U.S., which, while enjoying a strong following in much of Asia, Europe and the West Indies, isn’t as closely followed by a consumer market that prefers its NBA, NFL, MLB and such.
The one-off, untethered package costs $99.99, and offers the full works as far as the CWC is concerned. You get live broadcasts of every single match, action replays and highlights of all the best bits, as well as ESPN’s very own Match Point show, offering analyses from some of the biggest names in the sport.
Once you’ve snapped up the offer, you’ll be able to log in and enjoy the coverage on all devices, including Android, iOS, and Apple TV.
