Star Sports


What do you think of pay-TV services?

I refer to the letter from Elgen Kua of ESPN Star Sports (Talkback, September 22), commenting on my letter of September 17.

Still time to change schedules

Anna Lee on behalf of ESPN Star Sports in a letter to these columns on April 29, said that programme selection is made on the basis of viewers' tastes and market conditions.

I wonder what has changed so much since 1997 that the same ESPN Star Sports channels which showed the last two cricket World Cups live have decided not to show it this time.

Give fans live cup coverage

We, along with hundreds of thousands of fans in the Asia-Pacific region, were grateful to Star Sports for its excellent live coverage of the World Cup Cricket Championships in 1996.

Throughout the tournament, Star ran adverts promising a cricket bonanza for fans later that year, but we were never again to get live coverage of any serious cricket event.

The cricket at Kowloon Cricket Club on Sunday, May 11 was a fantastic success, with 2,500 cricketing fans supporting a terrific game. STAR Sports' coverage was first class and it made an enjoyable day's viewing.
