ARY Digital coverage

If I have to use one word to describe ARY Digital’s coverage of the Asia Cup, I would use the word ‘sucks’.

 

It seems like they are re-telecasting someone else’s coverage. So the commentators seem to be in a studio (or maybe an apartment in New York 😉 ), and there is hardly any stadium noise. It feels quite dead.

 

And of course, the camera work, which I don’t suppose is ARY’s, is pathetic. It took me back to those old Doordarshan days where the camera and the ball would hardly ever be in the same place!

 

Pathetic may be another word I could use.

After much hesitation, Asia Cup subscription done deal…

I did not want to have to subscribe to this channel – ARY Digitial. Apparently, based in Dubai and having predominantly Middle Eastern content. But they are the only ones televising it in North America, as far as I know.

So I did what I was resisting for so long. Signed up for that channel, just to see the boys play some cricket for the first time this season.

Let’s hope the rain Gods don’t dance around the time India plays 🙂
