With the ICC World Twenty20 2016 just three days out I know that there are many in the U.S. looking at what options they have to watch the matches.

This is essentially a quick update to my February 28, 2016 post about Willow, Sling & the Twenty20 2016.

As you can see from the above image the Roku Guide (which I get via e-mail) claims that you can get Willow on Roku either on its own (for the standard $14.99/month which will also includes other devices, e.g., phone) or for $10/month through Sling.

IF you are ONLY interested in the Twenty20 2016 matches SIGN-UP directly with Willow and pay the $14.99 for the month. You will be GLAD you did that.

Sling, as I continue to complain about, can be an absolute pain — and their electronic program guide will NOT show you which matches are being shown! Every match will just say “Cricket Highlights”. You then have to click on it to see which match it is. A friggin bloody pain BUT the folks had SLING, I have come to believe, are committed SADISTS. It appears that they love nothing more than inflicting pain on their customers. If you don’t believe me sign-up with SLING and get ready to be tortured. SMILE.

That Willow, that I watch through my Roku 3 via SLING (which is STILL a damn pain), was going to covering the upcoming ICC World Twenty20 2016 was NOT news to me per se since Willow had been promoting coverage of the event since December. I was glad. I think the last World Twenty20 was NOT on Willow. This is good.

Then again Willow also, a couple of weeks ago, covered the ICC U19 World Cup in its entirety and I did watch some of the matches.

Willow is GOOD. There HD picture quality has greatly improved.

The problem, always has been, bloody SLING. SLING is an abortion. SLING is a disgrace. SLING still won’t tell you, in the Program Guide, what match is being shown. you have to go through two bloody steps, for each game, to see what is on offer. Appears that Willow, probably through pressure from SLING/DISH, no longer offers an Roku APP of their own.

So bottom line IF you want Willow cricket in the U.S. Willow GOOD. SLING BAD. If you can get Willow without SLING go for that option even IF it costs a few dollars more. You will not regret it. The only thing you will regret is being tied to frigging, ‘what a joke’ SLING.
