It’s pretty easy to find streaming of almost any sport online somewhere… I remember doing it when England football matches were on Setanta.
Also, around the time Channel 4 lost the cricket coverage I rang up Sky and told them I would switch to Virgin Media unless my service was improved: Hey Presto! They gave me Sky Sports half price. I have repeatedly done this every time my subscription runs out, and have repeatedly received a cut price sports package.
This may just be because I’m a belligerent t**t to deal with over the phone, but hey, It’s gotten me all the cricket I can watch for surprisingly little for quite a while now.
