Why can't CWI work with the local tv stations to cover the games? The local tv stations shows full highlights of the games. That means they have cameras already at the games covering the full park.

If a station wants to cover the game, do you think the CWI would not sell them the rights?

I don't think so,I think they buy video from some company that produce the video, to have a crew there is expensive, more profitable for stations to show American soap opera.

I am wondering if there is a way they can take the tv station video coverage and stream it. The coverage will be better.

cricket coverage just does not use enough cameras.

,

I know they show full highlights of the matches. My thoughts are why can't CWI contract those who provide those videos?

De stations send a crew to cover 5 or 10 minutes of a game den move to de next location.

Companies are hired to do the coverage. I suspect dat de problem with this year's coverage are internet related

I saw highlights of a full days play from a Trinidad game in the recent past.

You really believe dat a TV station will spend money to send a crew to cover a full days play?

The bottom line is, local stations probably make more money on their TV commercials rather than covering regional Cricket, where there is none.

If they improved the quality by cutting a deal with local companies they could broadcast on Twitch or something.

The TV coverage we are getting is what CWI is paying for. A couple of seasons ago, we had a really good production team n Barbados with several cameras involved, but CWI took forever to pay the bill and subsequently pulled back on the value of the contract, hence the reduced cameras.
