Well given the Indian series is not that far way it won't be long before we do know.

Re: English Cricket

Still up for grabs on the India v Eng TV rights. Channel 4 are a surprise late runner...

Quote:
Three scenarios are in play. BT Sport and Sky remain the likeliest traditional subscription service to win the rights. Sky have shown almost all of England’s cricket tours over the past 30 years. BT Sport has rights to Australian cricket and screened the last Ashes tour.

Channel 4’s interest is a surprise but they would be welcomed by many in the game as free-to-air broadcasters. They will face challenges around scheduling the cricket at such short notice and marketing the tour in time.

It would be nice if Channel 4 can pick it up as a lot more viewers would be able to see it.

Agreed and at least some of it seems to be going C4's way.....

Negotiations are ongoing but with a bidding war underway, the rights are set to go to one of that trio in the coming days.

i understands the most likely outcome will see BT Sport and Channel 4 win a joint bid that will see at least one of the four Tests shown by the terrestrial broadcaster. One other scenario might see Hotstar share the rights with Channel 4.

Re: English Cricket

C4 are closing in...

Quote:
Friday January 29 2021, 5.00pm, The Times
Channel 4 has approached several star names to be pundits for next month’s India v England Test and limited-overs series as the broadcaster closes in on the TV rights.

The approaches reinforce Channel 4’s position as frontrunners for the broadcast rights to the series, as reported by The Times

Unless Sky returns to the table with an improved offer, Channel 4’s bid is expected to be confirmed over the weekend or on Monday, before the first Test next week. It would be the first time live Test cricket has been on terrestrial television since 2005.

Re: English Cricket

Channel 4 wins rights for England's Test cricket tour of India.

https://www.theguardian.com/sport/20...-tour-of-india

Quote:
The Guardian understands that global rights holders Star Sports and Channel 4 have agreed a contract for the live broadcast of the entire tour – four Tests, five Twenty20s and three one-day internationals – with an announcement due soon before the first Test in Chennai on Friday.
