Watch the IPL Live Online

The biggest sporting competition in the world, outside of the Olympics is the Indian Premier League (IPL), a professional 20/20 cricket tournament.

The games have audiences in the hundreds of millions, and include cricket stars from across the world.

No matter where you live, you can watch the IPL live online. Here’s how:

Official Stream

The IPL is said to be offering all matches for free on their website here. At the time of the writing though the site was down, but you can presume but they’ll eventually fix it. Note you also need Silverlight installed to watch the streams.

Other Streams

There’s a variety of streams on both Ustream and Word of warning though: there’s also a lot of false feeds which are nothing more than spam attempts on both sites, although Ustream was worse.

Cricmad has a variety of streams on their site here. I found the live video to be unreliable when I tested it, but it might be worth a look.

Cric7 has an excellent list of streams available over P2P apps like Sopcast here. Lots of choice here, so you’re bound to find a good one; presuming that is that you’re not a Mac user.
