IPL 2020 is returning to India and IPL fever is an all-time high. Hotstar has IPL 2020 rights for live online streaming and Star Sports has television rights. Note both Hotstar and Star Sports live are owned by the same company so it makes sense that they have rights for both the platforms. If you are looking to watch IPL live streaming in India then you have come to the right place. We are going to explain how you can watch live IPL 2020 feeds and at what cost. There are some free and paid options. If you are a true IPL 2020 fan in India then the paid option is the best one. But if you are a casual IPL fan or following only a specific team then watching live IPL streaming for free will be the best route.
Last year Hotstar India allowed users to watch 5 minutes delayed IPL feed but this year they have changed their policies. Under new policy users can only watch IPL live streaming for 5 minutes only and after that one has to subscribe to their paid plan which is only Rs.299 a year.

Watch IPL 2020 Live streaming in the USA
Willow TV has bought the official rights to telecast IPL 2020 in the states. Willow has rights for not only Television but also online streaming. If you are in the States and interested in IPL then you should head to Sling TV or IPL HD TV to subscribe to their plans and start watching the IPL games.
I think IPLHD TV is a much better choice when it comes to pricing and value you get. IPLHD is new yet providing a very reliable IPL streaming.

How to watch IPL 2020 in Australia?
Fox Sports has IPL streaming and television rights for Australia. If you have a set-top box then you can enjoy watching IPL live on Fox Sports but if you are a tech geek and want to watch IPL live streaming then Foxtel is your only option. If you have no access to both of these platforms then you can watch IPL live streaming on Wicket TV. It will show ads but as its a free streaming option so you will have to bear with it.
