Cricket & Cricket Media in United States
Cricket was not as popular in America as it is today. Back in late 80's there were no TV channels in America which broad casted any cricket matches at all. Cricket was a rare sight to see in the parks or anywhere else in United States, most of the Americans had no knowledge about the sport. Cricket gear was hard to buy and most of the gear was brought over by visitors as gift to the relatives living in United States.
As of today there are at least three channels in USA broadcasting cricket 24 X 7. Dish network has ESPN 10 Cricket, Willow Cricket and NEO cricket. All three broadcast cricket 24 hours a day. Most of the live international matches get full coverage on one of these channels.
