How to Watch T20 Cricket World Cup 2022 Free on Firestick
We’ll explore the different methods below, giving you the best avenues for each.
Method 1: How to Watch T20 Cricket World Cup via Official Apps
The ICC T20 Cricket World Cup is being aired worldwide, so you can use many streaming services to watch matches. However, streaming services are usually geo-restricted to comply with licensing agreements. As a result, you can only access streams if you are in a specific country.
If you are currently away from your region or a particular streaming service is not available in your region, you can use a reliable streaming VPN such as Surfshark. When you connect to a server, the VPN will change your virtual location to make you appear as if you are in that particular region. This will help you circumvent geo-restrictions and watch your team in action.
Disney + Hotstar (India & It’s Subcontinents)
Disney+ Hotstar is India’s official online broadcaster of the ICC Men’s T20 Cricket World Cup 2022. The streaming service is moderately priced in the country compared to other regions, and you can go with either the Super or Premium subscription. The latter has a monthly plan which goes for Rs 299.
A Disney Plus Hotstar subscription also provides 100,000 hours of TV content, movies, and all major sports covered live. However, note that the streaming service is geo-restricted, so connect Surfshark to a server in India if you are outside the region.
Willow TV/ Sling TV (US)
The aptly-named Willow TV is the home of top-tier cricket in the US, and you can use it to watch T20 Cricket World Cup. Willow TV is a Cricket channel provided by local TV providers, and it features several hundred days of live cricket covered annually. If you don’t have cable, you can get the channel through Sling TV, an a la carte TV provider.
You won’t need to have a Sling TV subscription to watch Willow TV. Instead, you can get Willow for $7 for the first month and $10 monthly. This means that you can watch the entire T20 World Cup 2021 for just $7. However, you will need to connect Surfshark to a server in the US if you are not in the region.

Free Streaming Precautions
Over the last several years, broadcasters have collaborated with ISPs and governments to curb the practice, and the result has been blocking streams, sending copyright notices, and taking legal action.
