I would watch it occasionally if it was free... but my cricketing days are so far behind me that I would not pay for it at all.

A grown up version of Baseball :)

Like American ( or Canadian) football, you have to be brought up with cricket as a kid to really get it IMHO

I think Rogers would probably add it. They'll add just about anything, for good or for worse.

Also, Bell Fibe TV could add it since I think have every single ATN channel, which there are 28 of. Although, Fibe may have only added 27 of them though, I'm not sure. Either way, it's either 27 or 28.

I hope they add it as high Definition channel. ATN never show Cricket in HD. What we watch is very poor quality picture quality.

Never really saw the game so don't know how its played
Here you go, this is how it works MCIBUS;

You have two sides, one out in the field and one in.

Each man that’s in the side that’s in goes out, and when he’s out he comes in and the next man goes in until he’s out.

When they are all out, the side that’s out comes in and the side that’s been in goes out and tries to get those coming in, out.

Sometimes you get men still in and not out.

When a man goes out to go in, the men who are out try to get him out, and when he is out he goes in and the next man in goes out and goes in.

There are two men called umpires who stay out all the time and they decide when the men who are in are out.

When both sides have been in and all the men have out, and both sides have been out twice after all the men have been in, including those who are not out, that is the end of the game!

See it's pretty simple really.......lol

I find a simpler way to understand it is forget the Runs and only pay attention to your Wickets, and after you get your head around that, then move onto the Runs. I had to learn later in life as my boyfriend's an Aussie, and I actually quite love the game.

If they could guarantee coverage of all new Zealand games I'd get it in a heartbeat

As it is, I was going to get cricket plus on bell fibe tv but the program guide gave such abysmal descriptions I couldn't justify it

"a replay of a cricket match"

"south Africa vs Zimbabwe" highlights with no details of when the game actually was

I believe the new Neo Cricket channel will be showing the India - NZ matches in their entirety. See:

http://asiantelevision.com/curr_atnneocricket.htm

Schedules only available 1-2 weeks at a time.

India-New Zealand is also being shown on ATN-CBN at this time (on Bell satellite, and elsewhere)

Yes - the "repeat cricket" that fills most of the CBNs and Cricket Plus schedules is pretty vague. It can make for some interesting times figuring out when the matches were actually played. Don't look for any rhyme-reason for why matches are replayed when they are.

Is Neo available on all Rogers systems throughout all of Canada, or just some localized regions? (The ATN website indicates Cricket Plus is only available in Ontario and New Brunswick - and I'd guess only parts of those two provinces also)

Rogers Cable doesn't have systems thoughout all of Canada. Rogers Cable is only in Ontario and NB. I think it is available on Rogers Digital in all areas of these provinces; however, Rogers Digital isn't available in many parts of NB and some of Ontario too I'd guess.

Its possible?
If you look at the line up between BTV & Bell Fibe I'd say there is less then 3% difference between the two channel line ups. If one adds it more then likely the other will.
