That sucks. I'd love to watch it.

Finally we can actually watch a game and understand what the hell is going on... wait, what?

It doesn't say why we're excluded, but there is this line: "Willow TV holds the North America internet rights." Looks like they charge anywhere from $9.95 to $299...

That sucks. My brother-in-law has gotten me interested in learning the game. And I might finally be able to finish that copy of Beyond a Boundary I bought last year.

So I guess this is how the rest of the world feeks when the US blocks content to the outside world.

Well, we can stop bitching and put our money where our mouths are soon: the IPL is coming to the US.

Canada seems to be subsumed within the USA?

Yep. Says "North America".

jmd: Yep. Only this time Canada gets fucked right along with you. Usually we just get fucked the other way on Hulu and the like. (Though I have a friend who runs a proxy for me so I can use it.)
