Mumbai: The craze of IPL amongst Cricket fans is mounting from season by season. People across the globe and especially in India check out mediums in advance from where they could get the live updates of IPL matches. The IPL matches come live on two major mediums – Television and Internet. While on TV, one can watch the matches live but over the internet, IPL updates comprising of IPL score, IPL schedule, live score, players detail, IPL teams, IPL official partners, IPL team owners etc… can be recovered.
IPL (Indian Premiere League) sixth edition is already live on television channels and internet websites and the IPL authorities have left no stone unturned to put a full stop to illegal screening of the matches. IPL official partners are successfully broadcasting the live streaming of IPL 2013 matches on SONY SIX and SET MAX but unfortunately, they are still incapable of banning the illegal IPL live streaming over the internet.
IPL organizers sell the copyrights of live streaming of the T20 matches and hence only official websites over the internet have the right to show live matches.
In this regard, pardaphash’s investigative team carried a research work to find out such websites who are showing the live IPL matches. Getting into some more technicalities, our team also found how these cyber experts show the live matches as legally they did not have the transmitting rights of IPL matches.
Internet experts revealed us that technology friendly people put a web cam focusing on a LED screen that transmits High Definition quality picture. While IPL matches go live on television, these web cams create feed for internet by using a software and the crime begins from this point. There are many websites which create live feeds for other websites and offer embedded code of the live IPL Streaming, which could be placed at any website to show the live IPL matches.
These feeds are provided to several websites which illegally show live IPL matches. In bid to stop this crime, IPL authorities have banned few websites before the start of the sixth season of the Pepsi IPL 2013.
IPL’s official internet broadcasters even had to incur losses because of the few websites, which show the live matches illegally. The money generated over the internet depends on the ‘hits’ or ‘Viewers’, a website gets. Because there are many more websites who are giving the live telecast of IPL matches, the hits are divided amongst those websites including the official website.
We urge our readers to watch the matches only on official website which also enhances the viewing experience with good sound and picture quality and not to promote the unofficial live streaming of IPL 6 matches.
Few websites which show the live streaming of IPL matches are:
