The BCCI granted Viacom 18 Group digital rights to the IPL 2023. This indicates that the IPL 2023 will not stream on Disney+ Hotstar. A Voot premium membership will be required to watch the IPL 2023 on an OTT platform.
We’ve been watching IPL live streams on Hotstar for the last few seasons, but the upcoming IPL 2023 season will make a great difference. The IPL 2023 will be streamed live on the Jio Cinema App as Viacom18-Reliance has picked up the digital broadcasting rights of the IPL from the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI). During the sale of broadcasting rights in June, Viacom18-Reliance made the highest bid of INR 23,758 crore to acquire packages B and C. For those who don’t know, Package B covers digital rights for the Indian subcontinent, and C, a special bouquet of 18 matches per season with non-exclusive digital rights for the same region. Although Star network still has the rights to broadcast IPL live in India on TV.
