Delhi high court ban 60 websites and few radio stations to broadcast ICC World Cup 2019.
It may be a bad news for ICC World Cup fans.
I am watching out that many of the office workers reached their home on time now and don’t go outside the house to meet their friends. Even many of them cancel the plan to go for a vacation this June. No, people are not a crazy of Salman and Aamir Khan’s movies. I am talking about the Cricket World Cup tournament which has been already started 30th May 2019 and will end on 14th July 2019. We know every Indian that they are so crazy to watch the cricket match. They never showed their craze towards hockey or football matches like cricket.
Well, the craze is yet to come where we can see our Indian team will face their long time competitors Pakistan on 16 June 2019. We can watch this upcoming tournament matches on Star Sports and Star Sports3 channel.
But when there is some kind of controversy is going on related to the World Cup then it may be a serious issue for us. It is true that Delhi High Court sends notice to ban 60 websites with few radio stations who are broadcasting the ICC World cup 2019.
What is the reason to ban such channels and radio stations?
Channel 2 Group Corporation which is an exclusive broadcast partner of International Cricket Council will also hold the whole event till World Cup 2023. Do you know what Channel 2 Group Corporation is? It is a Broadcast pioneer with the 1st Hindi terrestrial channel outside India. His chairman is Mr. Ajay Sethi has complicatedly pursued his passionate interest in sports by launching the first ever Radio over the internet – Cricket Radio. He recognized the importance of digitization and has used it wisely to transform his business goals in the field of sports and entertainment. His passion with sports also extends to other sports like Football, Tennis and Golf.
Channel 2 Group Corporation won with the help of court decision by claiming the copyright of audio coverage of entire sports event of this year. So the Court has sent them notice and wants everyone to reply till the next date of hearing on 4th September 2019. It’s an order of Judge for the Search Engine Google and telecom service like Airtel to keep their site down related to ICC world cup and block all the access link where the public can watch out the entire match unauthorized. It is true that few years ago Channel 2 Group Corporation has signed the agreement of audio right with ICC Business Corporation. After this agreement they are able to show the live coverage.
So after reading all post don’t you think they have the right to show to their audience live events even the warm-up matches over the internet and FM/AM. Even the Channel 2 Group Corporation shakes hand with Asia Sports Flashes and the only reason they do is for sub-licensee and distribution partnership deal with cricket events. Above news is a fact and going on these days so let’s wait for the time what other channels and radio stations reply because they have time till 4 September 2019.
