India West Indies series not on private channels: The series will be absent on private channels, for the record.

Normally DD only broadcasts India Cricket on Freedish for which sharing of content by the rights holder is mandatory. In this case, the rights holder is a subscription-based digital platform with no TV channels.

Last year, Fancode entered into an agreement with the West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) to air the series till 2024. During the rights period, India is scheduled to tour West Indies in addition to the upcoming series.

Other teams that will tour the West Indies during the rights period for the cricket series include England, Australia, South Africa and Pakistan. Earlier, the rights of WICB were with Sony Pictures Networks India (SPNI).

Fancode decided to go after Consolidated Rights (TV + Digital) as it seeks to grow its subscriber base. It is learned that a spot in ODIs on DD Sports costs Rs 3 lakhs and Rs 5 lakhs for Twenty20 Internationals. Vin Global Media is the sales agent selling series on DD Sports to advertisers. The ad revenue is the norm and will be shared 75:25 in favor of the rights holder which is fancode in this case.

The ODI series will begin on July 22, IST at 7 PM, followed by two more games on July 24 and 27 respectively. After the ODI, 5 T20 matches will be played from 29 July. Check out the full tour schedule here:
