In terms of IPL cricket live streaming, Hotstar owns the rights to India’s largest cricketing nation, while Willow TV, Yupp TV, and Sky Cricket will serve countries all over the world. Later in this article, I’ll go over that in more detail.
How to Watch IPL Live Streaming Online in India in 2021
As previously stated, Hotstar has the exclusive rights to live stream IPL 2021 matches in India, as they have for the past five years. During the IPL 2019 final between MI and CSK two years ago, the Disney-owned streaming platform set a new record by attracting 300 million viewers and recording 18.6 million concurrent viewers at one point.
The annual Disney+ Hotstar Premium membership costs Rs 1499 ($20), which is a great deal. If the annual plan is too expensive, a monthly plan for Rs 299 ($4) can be chosen instead. Another option is to get a Disney+ Hotstar VIP subscription for Rs 399 ($5.4) per year, which includes cricket live streaming. On Hotstar.com, desktop and laptop users (Windows, Mac OS, Linux) can watch the IPL 2019 live stream. Some internet service providers, such as Jio Fiber, offer a free yearly subscription to Hotstar. In addition, if you are unable to watch the matches live, Hotstar is the best place to watch IPL 2021 highlights.
In India, how can I watch the IPL 2021 live online on my mobile phone?
India has by far the most fervent cricket fans in the world, and IPL cricket is no exception. Because this is a BCCI-run tournament, there are a variety of ways to watch IPL cricket live in India. Let’s take a closer look.
Tune in to the IPL 2021 on Hotstar.
Reliance JioTV offers free IPL live streaming.
According to a new report, Reliance Jio will allow select prepaid, JioFiber customers to stream IPL 2021 free of charge thanks to a partnership with Disney+ Hotstar. Reliance Jio has introduced two new plans as part of its Dhan Dhana Dhana Dhana Dhana Dhana Dhana Dhana Dhana Dhana Dhana Dhana Dhana Dhana Dhan.
Jio Rs 401 Recharge Plan: This plan includes a year of Disney+ Hotstar VIP membership as well as 3 GB of data per day for 28 days.
Jio Rs 598 Recharge Plan: This plan, like the previous one, comes with an annual Disney+ Hotstar VIP subscription, but with a daily data limit of 2GB per day for 56 days.
Jio Rs 777 recharge plan: It includes a year’s subscription to Disney+ Hotstar VIP, but only 1.5 GB of data per day, which will expire after 84 days.
Jio Rs 2,599 Recharge Plan: This one includes a year of Disney+ Hotstar subscription, but the regular subscription is hard to come by because the plan is only valid for one year and only offers 2 GB of data per day.
Subscriptions to video streaming services are included in the recently revised Reliance JioFiber home broadband plans. JioFiber Gold costs Rs 999 per month, while the new broadband plans cost Rs 399 per month.
The Disney+ Hotstar VIP subscription is included in the Jio Fiber Gold plan for Rs 999 (150Mbps speed and unlimited data), the JioFiber Diamond plan for Rs 1,499 (300Mbps speed), the JioFiber Diamond+ plan for Rs 2,499 (500Mbps speed), and the JioFiber Platinum plan for Rs 3,999 (1Gbps speed).
Watch IPL 2021 on Airtel TV for free.
Users of Airtel can find a new Rs 401 data plan under the data section. For the next 28 days, users will receive 3 GB of data per day. They will also receive an annual Disney+ Hotstar VIP subscription. Other Airtel recharge plans that include a free Disney+ Hotstar VIP subscription are Rs 499 (28 days), Rs 599 (56 days), and Rs 2698. (365 days)
To be clear, unlike previous years, not all Reliance Jio and Airtel customers will be able to watch IPL 2021 for free online. Instead, users must choose from a few specific plans that include a Disney+ Hotstar VIP subscription in order to watch IPL 2021 live.
Free IPL 2021 broadcast on Vodafone-Idea
Unlike previous years, Vi (Vodafone Idea) customers will be able to watch IPL online for free this year, thanks to a strategic partnership between Vi and Disney+ Hotstar to launch these new recharge packs with a one-year free VIP membership. Unfortunately, unlike the premium plan, streaming will be limited to 720p rather than Full HD. Rs 401 (3GB per day, 28 days), Rs 601 (3GB per day, 56 days), Rs 501 (75GB, 56 days), and Rs 801 (3GB per day, 56 days) are the recharge plans with free Hotstar subscription (348GB, 84 days).
DishTV Anywhere is a service provided by Dish Network.
If you have a DishTV DTH subscription, you can access the DishTVAnywhere website to live stream IPL 2021 matches for free via Star Sports. You’ll need to use your registered mobile number to log in.
Tata Sky Mobile
Tata Sky DTH subscribers can use the Tata Sky mobile app to watch IPL 2021 online after logging in with their registered mobile number, just like DishTV subscribers can. (Update: It appears that users who want to watch Star Sports channels on the Tata Sky app must have a Hotstar subscription.)
In Australia, how can I watch the IPL 2021 live stream?
In Australia, Fox Sports has the rights to the IPL 2021, as it has for the previous three years. Every match is broadcast live on Fox Cricket, which is only available on Foxtel. In addition to Fox Sports, OTT platform Kayo Sports will broadcast IPL matches live in the region.
If you want to watch IPL 2021 live in Australia, you can use the Fox GO app, which is free if you have a Foxtel subscription, or subscribe to Yupp TV, which will broadcast the tournament live in 10 countries, including Australia and New Zealand. The Vivo IPL 2021 subscription costs AUD 24.99 for the entire season. As you can see, it’s quite expensive when compared to Hotstar in India. While Hotstar is geo-blocked, it can be unblocked by using a VPN. Later in this article, I’ll go over that in more detail.
How to Stream IPL 2021 in the United States and Canada
Unlike last year, when Willow TV lost the IPL live streaming rights in the United States and Canada to Disney+ Hotstar, they have reclaimed the rights for the IPL 2021 broadcasting. Yes, Willow TV, the most popular platform for cricket fans in North America, will broadcast IPL 2021 live.
Apps for iOS, Android, Amazon Fire TV, Roku TV, Xbox One, Sling, and other IPTV platforms are available from Willow TV. Willow TV subscriptions cost $9.99 per month or $60 per year. Look for free trials with coupon codes, as they are known to offer them. Of course, the deal isn’t as good as it is in India, but it can be accessed with the help of a VPN. Later in this article, I’ll go over that in more detail.
In the United Kingdom, how can I watch the IPL 2021 live stream?
Sky Sports is the official partner for both TV broadcast and livestreaming of the IPL 2021 cricket tournament in the United Kingdom and Ireland, as previously stated. On Sky Sports, viewers will be able to watch all 60 matches live.
Now TV offers daily and monthly passes for £9.99 and £33.99, respectively, which include access to the channel. SkyGo, Sky’s online viewing platform, and its mobile app provide legal streaming access. The cricket matches will also be live-streamed in the UK on the Disney+ Hotstar app.
How to Watch IPL 2021 Live in South Africa and the Middle East
In the history of the IPL, South Africa has played a significant role. Aside from having several players associated with various IPL teams, the country also hosted the IPL 2 in 2009. In South Africa and Sub-Saharan Africa, SuperSport is the official broadcaster of the IPL 2021. If you already have a SuperSport subscription, you can watch the IPL 14 live stream here. However, you must have a valid DStv package.
IPL fans in the Middle East will have to subscribe to Yupp TV in order to watch IPL 2021 online. Alternatively, you can subscribe to beIN connect for $18 per month. UAE, Saudi Arabia, and Egypt are among the countries involved.
IPL 2021 live telecast: How to watch IPL online in Malaysia, Singapore, Continental Europe, and South America in 2021
In Malaysia, Singapore, Continental Europe, and South America, YuppTV has been granted exclusive rights to live stream IPL 2021. YuppTV subscriptions are MYR 9.99 per month in Malaysia, SGD 29.99 in Singapore, and EUR 11.99 in Continental Europe. Cricket fans in South America can watch the IPL live online for $9.99 per month on YuppTV.
IPL 2021 live telecast in Pakistan: How to Watch IPL Online
Intriguingly, cricket fans in Pakistan will continue to be unable to watch the IPL live due to the country’s ban on the broadcast. Although there have been reports of Yupp TV live streaming the IPL 2021 in Pakistan, TechyPRO has not been able to confirm these claims. To watch the IPL live, fans can use a VPN.
How to Watch IPL 2021 Online Using a VPN
When compared to other countries such as the United States, the United Kingdom, Canada, or Australia, the subscription to watch IPL 2021 on Hotstar in India costs almost nothing. Given the low cost of Hotstar VIP in India ($5.4 per year), users can save money by signing up for reputable premium VPN services such as ExpressVPN, Windscribe, NordVPN, or SurfShark. If you only plan on watching a few matches, you can use one of the free VPN services on this list, but not many of them have a free server in India.
The following is an update:
How can I Watch IPL 2021 for Free?
Following the publication of this article, a few people inquired as to whether they could watch IPL 2021 live online for free. That depends on how you define and use the term “free.” In India, for example, Hotstar VIP is included for free with some prepaid Airtel and Reliance Jio plans, as well as some broadband plans like Jio Fiber. Similarly, if you have a Tata Sky or DishTV DTH subscription, you can watch IPL cricket matches on your phone for free.
However, if you’re looking for a 100% legal way to watch IPL 2021 live streams for free, I’m afraid there isn’t one. Yes, some of it may be illegal, such as ThopTV and CricHD, but many of them are infected with malware and adware, not to mention untrustworthy. As a result, it is strongly discouraged. For a few dollars, you can get high-quality live streams of the IPL 2021. So, what’s the big deal?
