Sling TV has partnered with Willow TV, which has snapped the digital rights of IPL 2017 from the BCCI, to offer VIVO Indian Premier League (IPL) 2017 that will be kicking off in April.
“The IPL is viewed by millions worldwide and Sling TV claims to be always been the top destination for cricket matches and tournaments in the US. “Through our partnership with Willow TV, our cricket offerings got even stronger,” said Izabela Slowikowska, Vice President of International Programming. “Willow, the leading provider of cricket in the US, recently acquired the exclusive media rights for the VIVO Indian Premier League 2017.”
The addition comes as Sling TV also launches special pricing of the new World Cricket standalone pack. Viewers can get six months of the package for one payment of $40 or 12 months for $60. These packages include both Willow and Willow Extra and will bring subscribers the latest matches and tournaments, including the ICC Champions Trophy, India vs. West Indies, India vs. Sri Lanka, India vs. Australia.
In addition to the World Cricket package, subscribers can catch the VIVO IPL 2017 and other matches featuring India through any of Sling TV’s programming packages that include Willow TV. This includes Hindi, Punjabi, Malayalam, Tamil, Telugu, Marathi, Bengali and Kannada language packages.
