How to Watch Cricket World Cup 2019 Online?

Watching content online is great and it gives us a ton of freedom to watch content wherever you may go. But that freedom is somewhat limited by the fact that you can't watch abroad. In fact, all live TV platforms and streaming services are geoblocked, so you can't access them from abroad unless, for some services, they're also open in a specific market. Under these circumstances, you need to get creative. The first thing you need to know is that these platforms know your location by reading your IP address. Thankfully, IPs are super easy to change so we suggest looking into subscribing to a VPN service to make things even easier. Here's what you need to do.

How to Watch Cricket World Cup 2019 Without Cable?

We already use the Internet to watch shows and movies, to connect with friends, to order food or look up recipes, laugh and dance, and so on, so it makes sense to also watch TV over the Internet. Live TV platforms are cheaper than cable is and you can cancel your subscription anytime you feel like it since there is no contract to tie you down. Let's see what options you have to watch the Cricket World Cup 2019 live online.

Topping our list we have Sling TV, which is actually the only live TV platform to feature Willow TV on its list of channels. The platform features three bundles to pick between - Orange ($15/mo), Blue ($15/mo), and Orange + Blue ($25/mo). You can then add loads of channel packs and premium networks. In fact, you're going to need to do that because Willow TV is located in the International area and costs $5 per month.

You'll find that Sling TV also treats cloud DVR as an add-on and you can get access to enough space to record 50 hours of video for $5 per month. When it comes to how many devices you can watch content on, Sling TV gives Orange subscribers only one screen to watch on, while Blue subscribers get three simultaneous streams. Those who chose the Orange + Blue bundle can watch on four screens simultaneously. Make sure to check our Sling TV review for more details on what the service has to offer.

Note: One thing we need to point out here is that the prices we mentioned are part of a temporary deal. Regularly, Orange and Blue are $25 per month, while Orange + Blue is $40 per month. Depending on when you sign up for the service, you get to benefit from the lower prices.

2. Willow TV

Willow TV is also the other option of watching the Cricket World Cup 2019. The network offers a way to subscribe directly to them so you can enjoy live content wherever you may go. The subscription costs $9.99 per month.

The network has apps for multiple platforms, including iOS, Android, Windows, Apple TV, Roku, Samsung Smart TV, Xbox One, Amazon Fire TV, Android TV, Chromecast, and Google TV, so you're more than covered if you want to watch. With Willow TV you can still log in if you're in Canada, UK, India, Pakistan, or Australia. If you're anywhere else, you'll need to go ahead and use a VPN, as described above.
