Option #1: Watch IPL 2021 Live via YuppTV
YuppTV is a subscription-based service available in 100+ countries. More precisely, you can use it in Australia, Continental Europe, Sri Lanka, Pakistan, Japan, Nepal, South East Asia (except Singapore & Malaysia), Central & South America, Central Asia, Bhutan, and the Maldives.

This OTT service brings several plans – bringing from 100 up to 150 TV channels, all of which come from India. It also includes Hotstar in select plans, while letting you stream Indian movies (on-demand) and plenty more.
To get started, go ahead and visit the official YuppTV website. Then, click on ‘Packages’ in the top-right corner, and you’ll see the subscription plans available in your region. Pick the one that fits you the best and sign-up.
Once you subscribe, feel free to watch YuppTV on the Web (via its website), or you can access this streaming service on TVs, smartphones, tablets, gaming consoles, and plenty more.
Option #2: Watch IPL 2021 Live via Hotstar
Keep in mind that Hotstar is available in the United States, Canada, and India. You need to be in one of those countries to sign-up, as using a VPN isn’t possible. Your Hotstar membership is not transferable from one country to another.
In case you live in the United States or Canada, Hotstar is the best way to live-stream this year’s Indian Premier League. This streaming service brings live TV and on-demand content from India (covering nine different languages), providing a comprehensive way to watch every single IPL game in 2021.
Keep in mind that Hotstar is a premium-priced subscription service. In the USA, you can choose from a monthly subscription – priced at $9.99/month or a yearly subscription – $99.99/year. In case you’re in Canada, there is only one subscription type available, where you’ll need to pay C$ 49.99/year.
To get started with this streaming service, make sure to subscribe to Hotstar first. Once you create your Hotstar account and pay for your subscription, you can proceed to download the app on any device you own. This includes iOS and Android, Fire TV, Apple TV, Android TV, Samsung smart TVs, and Chromecast.
