    Cricket World Cup Semi final/final

    Greetings fellow cricket fans (Hope some out there!)

    HK TV so far seems to be full of golf, football, martial arts..Do any channels (that we can pay extra for) show the cricket world cup?

    Alternatively, is there anywhere in HK that will show the matches live where we could go?

    Please let us know, thanks!

    Yes - ESPN on NOW Broadband, but it's very expensive.

    However, many bars have it and are showing the cricket live. Bulldog's, Kangaroo, etc, etc.

    Thanks very helpful indeed. If not too late can we still pay HK$ 160 and get what remains of world cup? When you said broadband is it like a live stream? Or is there a channel we can call? Sorry so clueless! Please advise, otherwise will have to get babysitter and pay thru nose and head to Wanchai! Thank you

    I believe you have to commit to 12 months of the normal (useless) cricket channel as well, so the total cost is somewhat higher.

    We're talking about NOW BroadbandTV
    htp://www.nowbroadbandtv.com

    Do you already have a connection with them?
