The following guide will show you how to watch the Live Caribbean Premier League on Firestick.
CPLT20, or the Caribbean Premier League Twenty-20, is one of the most popular annual cricket tournaments among cricket fans worldwide. Since its inception in 2013, CPL has seen consistent growth in international viewership. The 2019 season was broadcasted on both TV and digital platforms, resulting in a total view of 312 million, which was twice the viewership compared to the previous season.
The 2020 season of the Caribbean Premier League is going to be held in the month of August. It will last until the third weekend of September. Following the recent trends among other sports leagues, the WICB (West Indies Cricket Board) has decided to begin the tournament behind closed doors.
As usual, six teams from the last season will continue battling for this year’s championship match, including— St Lucia Zouks, Jamaica Tallawahs, Guyana Amazon Warriors, St Kitts & Nevis Patriots, along with the current champion Barbados Tridents, and the three-time champion Trinbago Knight Riders.
Since many of you and other Firestick users are looking forward to watching the West Indian Twenty-20 cricket competition live without cable, we have prepared this guide to several digital streaming services that will air the Caribbean Premier League on Firestick.
Watch Caribbean Premier League on Firestick (US & Canada)
Below is a list of streaming services that will let you watch the 2020 season of the Caribbean Premier League on Firestick. We have extensively discussed the services as well, which you should definitely check out.
In 2018, live and on-demand sports streaming service DAZN acquired exclusive streaming rights to air every Twenty-20 match from the Caribbean Premier League cricket tournament. The acquisition will last until the 2021 season, according to DAZN’s official reports.
You can watch CPL in 1080p across DAZN’s compatible devices, including Firestick. In the United States, a DAZN subscription will cost you $19.99/month and $99.99/year. Similarly, Canadians will have to pay $20 CAD/month and $150 CAD/year. When you sign up for a subscription from dazn.com, you will be billed after DAZN’s 30-day free trial expires. You can choose to cancel your subscription whenever you want. The DAZN app is available in the official Amazon Appstore for Fire TV devices.
Another American cricket-centric sports channel named WILLOW has the broadcasting rights for Caribbean Premier League. The channel also has its own streaming service with the same name, which can also be downloaded from the Amazon Appstore on Firestick.
Although WILLOW is available in both the United States and Canada, the broadcasting rights to CPLT20 is limited to the US only. The monthly and yearly WILLOW subscription (Willow.tv) will cost you $9.99 and $60, respectively. If you have the WILLOW channel included in your cable or satellite TV plan, then you can also log in to the WILLOW app with select TV providers, including Spectrum, Optimum, Fios, Xfinity, etc.
From the WILLOW app, you can also watch replays and highlights of cricket matches from select national teams, major ICC events, and other cricket leagues on-demand as well.
Over-the-top American live TV provider Sling does offer the WILLOW channel with Sling Extras (add-ons) and standalone packages. None of Sling’s $30 Orange and Blue base plans include it. If you opt to add the channel with Sling’s base plan, then the Willow Cricket Mini ($5) Sling Extra is what you need to watch the Caribbean Premier League.
If you only want to watch the WILLOW HD channel on Sling, then you can pay for the WILLOW Cricket standalone plan. It costs only $10/month, and you will also get the WILLOW XTRA channel as a bonus.
It’s worth noting that the standalone plan doesn’t have DVR features or simultaneous streams, unlike what you get with Sling’s base plans. Go to sling.com to grab the plan, then sign in to the official Sling app on Firestick to watch the Caribbean Premier League live without a cable connection.
Watch Caribbean Premier League on Firestick in India
All 34 matches of the 2020 Caribbean Premier League season will be broadcasted live on Star Sports 1 and Star Sports 2 (SD/HD) channels. Star India has also acquired the rights to stream CPL on Disney+ Hotstar, one of the major streaming services in the Indian market.
You can download and install Hotstar on Firestick from the Amazon Appstore. However, you will also have to pay for a Disney+ Hotstar VIP subscription, which is available for only ₹399 on a yearly basis. The Disney+ Hotstar Premium (₹299/month, ₹1499/year) subscription, which offers a broader catalog of on-demand content, will also let you watch the 2020 Caribbean Premier League live in India.
Go to hotstar.com/in/subscribe/get-started to sign up for a Disney+ Hotstar subscription if you haven’t already.
Watch CPL on Firestick in other Countries
In association with cloud-based video production company Grabyo, Caribbean Premier League has been airing live for the last few years on two popular social media platforms— Facebook and Twitter. The 2020 CPL Draft was recently streamed live on the official CPL T20 Facebook and Twitter pages as well. However, at the time of this writing, it hasn’t been confirmed whether the 2020 season of CPL will be streamed on social media platforms or not, similar to the previous seasons.
In case it is announced later, you can download the Fire TV version of the Facebook app (previously known as Facebook Watch) on Firestick to stream live matches from the Caribbean Premier League. As of now, you can watch archived matches from previous CPL seasons on-demand from the Livestream section of the official CPL Facebook page. We recommend avoiding Twitter on FireTV app to stream CPL games, as the video quality is marginally inferior compared to what Facebook offers.
