If you are not familiar with these channels, we will talk a bit about them. That way, you can see what the best way is to watch.

  • SonyLiv – This option is an OTT (over the top) streaming service located in India. That means it is not a part of any other service and can be accessed, providing you have a subscription. It is operated by the Sony Network. You can purchase a year of service for 999 Rupees. That works out to around $13 USD or about £10.75 (those numbers may fluctuate.) Keep in mind that if the time for the matches or other things may be listed in India Standard Time (IST) and that is GMT+5:30.
  • Sky Sports – If you are from the UK and have a subscription to Sky Sports, you can watch online from the Sky Sports app. You would just need to enter your credentials.
  • Willow.TV – If you have access to Willow.TV either by your US satellite/cable provider or through Sling TV, you can watch the tests by downloading the Willow.TV app and entering your credentials. If you plan on watching them live, the US timezones range from 4 hours behind GMT (for EST) to 7 hours behind GMT (for PST).

These matches will certainly be interesting in that the full teams are not playing in the tests. There are players on both sides that are opting out of this tour for different reasons. For the West Indies team, 3 of their veteran players named Shimron Hetmyer, Darren Bravo, and Keemo Paul are bowing out because of Covid-19. For England, Joe Root has opted out of the first match to attend to the birth of his second child.
