The IPL is the most-attended cricket league in the world, so make sure you have a way to keep up with the action.

The 2019 IPL season is shaping up to be an exciting affair. Now in its 12th season, the IPL draws in millions of viewers from all over the world. In 2019, the competition will kick off on 23 March.

In India, the IPL is broadcast live by Star Sports, which provides live coverage on several of its channels in multiple languages. But if you can’t watch on TV, don’t worry, you can easily get your cricket fix via the Internet in a few simple clicks. Here’s how you can tune in:

IPL on Hotstar

The IPL is live streamed on Hotstar, India’s most popular video-on-demand service. You can purchase the All Sports package for INR 299/year to stream IPL matches live, as well as watch live tennis, Formula 1, Premier League and more.

Or, you can get a Premium subscription to enjoy a side of TV shows and movies with your regular dose of sports content. A Premium subscription costs INR 199/month or INR 999 for an entire year and brings you a generous catalogue of TV series and movies, including HBO hits like Game of Thrones. Hotstar works across various devices, including PCs, Macs, smartphones, tablets, Android TV, Chromecast, Apple TV and Fire TV.

Stream the IPL free with Jio TV or Airtel TV

Thanks to deals struck by both Jio and Airtel with Hotstar, mobile users can stream the IPL on their mobile devices at no extra cost.

Jio clients can stream IPL matches free with their Jio TV app. All you need to do is download the app and sign in with your Jio credentials. Besides the IPL, you can also enjoy live TV with Jio, as the app brings you access to over 350 channels.
