ICC announces broadcast plans for the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2024

Aside from India, the Hindi broadcast will be available in the UK through Sky Sports, Willow TV in the United States and Canada, and Prime Video in Australia.

The International Cricket Council (ICC) has revealed the broadcast arrangements for the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2024, the biggest-ever ICC World Cup, with 20 nations competing across nine host locations, bringing spectators closer to the action than ever before.

The ICC, via its direct broadcast collaborations with broadcasters worldwide, hopes to provide fans with elite coverage of all 55 games in what will be the largest cricket carnival ever.

Fans in India can watch the T20 World Cup on Star Sports Network and Disney+ Hotstar. In addition to the English international feed, Star Sports will air the competition in Hindi, Tamil, Telugu, and Kannada, with each match also streamed live on Disney+ Hotstar. Moreover, Star Network has set the standard for another breakthrough, making the World Cup more accessible, by launching the Indian Sign Language Feed, which delivers the first audio-explanatory commentary for an ICC tournament.

Fans will further observe the continuation of the wildly popular vertical feed, which made its debut for the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup 2023 last year and was created by ICC TV with support from Disney Star to give fans a simpler and more convenient way to watch all 55 matches on their mobile devices, enabling people all over the world to consume content while on the go. Owing to AI-driven improvements, the vertical feed will now offer an improved user experience that is optimised for mobile devices and tailored to engage casual fans with an intuitive watching experience.

Moving on, fans in the US and Canada can watch the inaugural T20 World Cup in the USA on Willow TV, while the Willow by Cricbuzz app will also provide coverage. Followers and co-hosts in the Caribbean can catch live via the ESPN Play Caribbean app and watch on ESPN Caribbean on TV.

Cricket fans in the UK can watch the action live on Sky Sports Cricket, Sky Sports Main Event, and Sky Sports Action, as well as online on SkyGO, NOW, and the Sky Sports App.

With Prime Video hosting coverage of all 55 games, Amazon will serve as the new home of ICC Cricket in Australia. Furthermore, Sky Sport NZ is still the preferred broadcaster of ICC Men’s T20 World Cup matches for enthusiasts in New Zealand.

SuperSport and its app, accessible throughout South Africa and the 52 Sub-Saharan African states, will allow supporters of South Africa, Uganda, and Namibia to watch all the action live.

All games will be streamed live on STARZPLAY throughout the MENA region, including the United Arab Emirates. Broadcast coverage will be accessible on CricLife MAX and CricLife MAX2 in the UAE.

Pakistani fans get access to all games digitally via the Myco and Tamasha apps, as well as on the linear partners PTV and Ten Sports. Bangladesh’s linear TV provider will be Nagorik TV, and Toffee will stream the full competition live on its website and app.

Maharaja TV in Sri Lanka continues to cover ICC events on linear channels TV1, Sirasa, and Shakti TV, as well as on their website. For the first time, Maharaja TV will broadcast Sri Lanka matches with Sinahlese commentary. Fans can additionally view live coverage of the event in Sri Lanka via the ICC TV app.

In an advantageous move that will promote the game’s expansion, the ICC will broadcast the Men’s T20 World Cup live and free to over 80 regions, including Continental Europe and South East Asia, through the app. This move will allow more fans in these markets to experience the sport while also positioning as a cricket hotspot. In addition to live matches, spectators will be able to see ICC-produced programming and highlights.

Fans in several areas can now watch the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup in Hindi. Aside from India, the Hindi broadcast will be available in the UK through Sky Sports (India matches plus semi-finals and finals), Willow TV in the United States and Canada (47 games), and Prime Video in Australia (4 games).

The event also represents the first time that all official ICC licensees will use clip rights on their own and managed platforms, as well as their social networks.
