Cricket FAQs

As many cricket matches are broadcast outside of our normal support hours of 8:00 AM - 1:00 AM ET, please use the section below to find answers for many of the common questions we receive in regard to watching cricket on Sling TV:


How many devices can I watch cricket on?


Sling International services including World Sports and Willow Cricket can be viewed on one device at a time. However, all Sling International subscribers can add two additional device streams to their account when changing their subscription at sling.com. 


Go to my Account


Once you’ve logged in to your account, select Change Subscription, and under Streaming, select Additional Streams, then Review to continue.

For full instructions on changing your subscription, click here


Why isn't my match live?


Sometimes, matches will be delayed due to weather or run long due to other circumstances. When this happens, live coverage will often run over in to the next program in the guide. 


When this happens, selecting the match you'd like to watch using the Lookback feature on Willow Cricket will start that match from the beginning. To watch live, when using the Grid View in your guide, select the program currently streaming. If you're using the Channel View, select the program labeled with On Now to watch live. 


See below for examples:


Grid View




Select what's currently on


 Then, select Watch Live


Channel View



Select the program On Now

Then, select Watch Live


Sometimes when watching a live event, you may notice that what you're seeing lags slightly behind what your friends see or what fans on social media are talking about. Due to the nature of live-streaming and how content is delivered to you, a delay of a few seconds is normal. However, if you notice that a delay has grown longer over the course of watching an event, try reloading the channel to catch your stream up. If you notice your stream falling behind consistently, give the following steps a try to see if they can help the issue:


  • Hard-wire your device: Using WiFi to stream is easy and convenient, however, hard-wiring your device with an Ethernet cable (if available) can deliver a more consistent and stable streaming experience


  • Limit your devices: Having too many devices connected to your home network can limit the bandwidth available for what you're streaming and cause delays


  • Close other apps: Too many applications open on your device can impact performance. Make sure to close any apps you're not using while streaming


I’m getting kicked off my account


If you’re seeing a message that another device is using your account and suspect that an unauthorized user may have access to your subscription, please reach out to us during our normal support hours (8:00 AM – 1:00 AM ET, 7 days a week) by scrolling to the very bottom of this page and selecting Contact Us so our agents can assist you.


How can I add cricket to my subscription?


If you’re subscribed to a service which doesn’t include Willow Cricket or Willow Xtra, you can add programming to your subscription by logging in to your account at sling.com. 


Go to my Account


Once you’ve logged in, select Change Subscription to see available extras.


Important Note: Make sure to fully review your subscription before adding more channels. We want to make sure you don’t accidentally add the same channels twice!
