As a Non-Resident Indian (NRI), living in Singapore took a lot of getting used to. Cricket is a huge part of India and it is not only a sport but a way of life.

I really want to watch the IPL, but don't want to spend too much money on this.

I've found that Singtel, Starhub and Eleven Sports offer the IPL here.

Eleven Sports seems to the the cheapest, at $33.90 for the whole tournament.

The first option I came across was StarHub however, StarHub offers standard starter subscription package includes signing a 24-month contract. Then it is an additional $32.10 per month for the cricket channel bundle. Coupled with the set-top box charges, that is a steep price to pay for just one tournament. I do not watch television at all so the search for a cheaper option continued.

The next choice was Singtel which is relatively cheaper than StarHub (the starter pack is valued at $19.90 per month) but it also offered services on a minimum 12-month contract and the cricket channels were not included in this package deal.

While sharing my unsuccessful hunt for a cheap and efficient way with a coworker I learned about Eleven Sports. It is an internet television service which distributes television content via the internet as opposed to terrestrial satellite television systems. It is similar to popular independent services such as Amazon Video or Netflix.

You need to watch IPL through Eleven Sports is an internet connection either Ethernet or Wi-fi and a device to view the matches on. Furthermore, there was no binding contract like the one offered by StarHub and Singtel that makes me liable to pay for a service all-year round even though I need it only for two months.

Has anyone tried this before?

Any advice before I subscribe?
