This doesn't include the US.  So, don't get your hopes up.

Before you get your hopes too high, this is for select countries only.  As
you would expect, US is not in the list of the "select" countries
and since most of us are in the US, this doesn't help us.  I think some
website will broadcast the series live, but they will wait a little more
to give details (cricketnext.com?) so that more people sign up for
dish network.  Let's keep our fingers crossed.

NOPE, I don't think there will be any webcast in the US.
The willow.tv information states "in association with
Cricketnext.com"...so, I don't think cricketnext.com will be doing
anything besides this.

Besides, Dish owns the webcast rights for the US and they will not
sell it.  North American viewers will, therefore, have no option other
than viewing through Dish network.  The Dish dudes, with their
outrageous $450 pricing, really do have us cornered.

Hi,

I have started a petition at www.PetitionOnline.com to
send DISH network about their really high pricing
structure for World cup cricket broadcast. This is a
great way of showing how they are missing out on all
our business because of their pricing structure.if
enough of us sign it, we could get the attention of
the DISH network folks and maybe, just maybe, watching
cricket in the US would become more affordable going
forward.

If you agree, please sign the petition here

http://www.petitiononline.com/wcc2003/petition.html

and please forward this email to your friends and family who might
share this
opinion.

Cheers.
