It will allow sports fans to watch their favourite sports in Hindi without paying any fee, a media release issued by Star Sports said.The channel will also air VIVO Pro Kabaddi League Season 5 which will begin in Hyderabad on July 28. Its programme calendar will also include BCCI domestic cricket tournaments and domestic football tournaments, etc.A Star India spokesperson said: “Television penetration in India has grown exponentially. We recognise that there is a very sizable subset of this universe that is not on conventional pay TV. In the `Free-to-air’ content that they have access to, sports content is mostly absent and only sporadically available. It is our belief that there is an eager appetite for it.” SHARE July 08, 2017 television industry satellite and cable service COMMENT COMMENTSlast_img

first_imgI feel Brandon Weeden’s pain. Not to the extent he feels it, of course, but as was pointed out in this video, I’m not sure any of us have gotten over that 2011 Iowa State game.This reminds me of a random text I got from OKC Dave two years ago. I was at my local library in January or February — not much going on in sports. I was just hanging out. I check my phone and all it says is, “I had to go to Ames today. I’m sitting in my car just staring at Jack Trice.” I laughed. I cried.Here’s what Weeden told the Oklahoman recently about that game.“I’m not joking when I say that I still lose sleep over that game,” Weeden said. “That one still lights a fire in my stomach and is something we’ll have to live with for the rest of our lives.”Yep.But I’m totally, completely and fully oveNOPE I’M NOT.Screen Shot 2015-11-05 at 10.07.47 AMYou should go read that full article, by the way.
