Every other day - A new channel.
And they keep on shifting the cricket telecast rights which surely makes my life tough. If it does to you as well, read on. I'll tell you about another sports channel - called as Neo Sports, this time from Nimbus communications.
Launch date - 1st October, 2006 with the challenger's trophy between India Blue, India Red and India Green. But the problem occurred when there were no signs of Neosports when the actual match started at half past two on that Sunday. Here are the match reviews.
Indian domestic cricket has not flourished till today because there has been no "live telecast" of those matches. But now things have been changing rapidly and Neo Sports is a result of that. After bagging the challenging rights of BCCI's television rights, Nimbus thought they had made a very wrong decision of pulling out 612 million dollars. They were sad when the smart mind of Mr. Lalit Modi showed them the way - cash in on Domestic cricket.
Indian cricket lovers will be seeing twenty20 for the first time, that too between our Indian domestic teams. Not to mention that Neo sports has the rights to live telecast those three ODI series against West Indies and then against Sri Lanka in January 2007. And Challenger's trophy is just a start of that.
How to get Neo Sports - Well, that's not clear as yet. I myself is not getting the channel as of today, after asking my cable operator for it twice. The fact is not many people are getting Neo-Sports. And then I played the trick of watching new Channels like Aaj Tak, Headlines today and few other. Those news channels work as hard as I do but they are better equipped.
And finally, I got the glimpse of Neo Sports on Star News. Which proved to me that this Nimbus channel is somewhere in the sky and someone has caught it. All you need is your cable operator to find it for you. All I can help is by informing you that Neo Sports has been decoded by Star Tv right now, which mean that the Neo Sports comes with Star India package.
DTH services like Dish TV and TATA Sky may be showing this Nimbus channel as well, but it's at Premium price, my sources tell me.
I'll add any and every information that I get regarding this channel. So just persist with me.
