Coverage will come in six different languages, and with a target reach of over 700 million viewers across all platforms, the game is available for pretty much anyone to watch. While the IPL season only lasts for two months, the build-up and various events before the games take place means that the total period of interest is six months. The retention details that were announced a short while ago has over eight million viewers watching.
The VR experience that fans can expect to see in the 2018 IPL is going to make it possible for them to sit and view games from their couches as though they were on the field. Alongside this you will have the ability to choose different camera angles to watch the games on, as well as choosing the language you would like to hear.

Alongside this, interaction with others will be encouraged through Hotstar by using a variety of different cricket emojis. There will also be a super fan feed, where fans can put their thoughts on the games, and also fans will be able to vote for their favourite players in various competitions on the network. All in all, IPL fans can expect to be heavily involved in everything that is taking place from a digital point of view.
It is expected that the VR service will be rolled out to mobile devices only in 2018, although that shouldn’t affect too many people as mobile VR headsets are far more common than desktop ones. This is yet to be clarified, and hopefully it will be shortly so that people can start making their plans for the upcoming season, and how they are going to watch the games.
