The Indian Premier League live streaming & TV options for 2018 can be found here. With the 10th edition of the IPL having just gotten over & Mumbai Indians having won their third title, things will change drastically come the 11th season as the fight for the TV rights of the Indian Premier League gears up. We will update you with all the options to watch the IPL once more information on this is released.
For 10 seasons of the Indian Premier League, the tournament has been broadcast over the official channel in India; Sony and SET Max, before they merged with ESPN and the IPL was shown live in India on various channels. This included Sony Six, Sony Six HD, ESPN and ESPN HD for the 10th edition of the Indian Premier League.
However, the deal between the BCCI and the broadcaster was for a 10-year-long period, which means all bets are off once the Indian Premier League 2017 ends – the official broadcaster on TV and the live streaming rights for the IPL 2018-22 could change hands.
Yes, that’s right, this season, the IPL rights for TV and IPL Live Streaming online – which is currently done by HotStar on Star Sports – will be won for just a period of five years and not 10 years like last time. The reason for this is that the BCCI thinks that the rights value will increase rapidly and it makes sense to have them out for bidding yet again five years down the line.

Interestingly, there is a chance that the fight for the online streaming rights of the IPL are fought for by non-traditional channels like Amazon Prime in addition to Sony LIV and HotStar. One way or the other, one hopes the broadcast is one which takes the fans into account.
