2018 not only has a new destination channel but has changes that have been requested and accepted for the first time

This is the first time when both the TV and digital rights are with a single broadcaster, which will result in the simulcast of the game without the groaning five-minute delay.

For the first time, IPL will be live on 10 channels and Hotstar. On the digital platform, VR will be a key differentiator and will possibly help Hotstar to keep the fans glued on to it.

For the previous seasons, Sony Pictures Network was airing IPL in two languages Hindi and English on Sony Six, Sony Max and their HD feeds. But Star is planning to telecast it in six different languages English, Hindi, Tamil, Telugu, Bengali and Kannada. The Kannada channel was still in the works some weeks ago.

Star India recently managed to convince the IPL governing council (GC) to change the timings for the games of the league being held from 7 April to 27 May 2018. The 8 pm game will now begin at 7 pm while the 4 pm game has been pushed forward to 5:30 pm.

The Information and Broadcasting (I&B) Ministry is working on a proposal to make IPL available on Doordarshan and has asked the Sports Ministry to weigh in on the matter.

The move will mean that Star India will have to share the live feed of the tournament with public broadcaster Prasar Bharati under the Sports Broadcasting Signals (Mandatory Sharing with Prasar Bharati) Act, 2007. Prasar Bharati runs Doordarshan and All India Radio. For this IPL will have to be categorised as a tournament of national importance at par with events like Olympics, Commonwealth Games and Wimbledon.

Star India, for the first time, has also thought of starting international fan parks for the IPL and cricket lovers around the globe. Fan Parks were launched in 2015, initially in 16 cities. The 2017 edition of the Fan Park was held in 36 cities in 21 states, bringing fans across the length and breadth of India closer to their beloved sport. These included 14 new cities, like Bhubaneswar, Bareilly, Kochi, Ludhiana, Tumkur and Nagercoil which hosted the Fan Park for the first time.

Sony aired the IPL in all the languages that Star is going to air it in, except Kannada. That too across 5 channels: Sony ESPN (SD and HD), Sony Six (SD and HD) and Sony Max (SD only, not HD). Let's see if Star can launch separate Telugu and Bangla channels or if they broadcast the IPL on Jalsha Movies and Star Maa Movies (may be even in HD).
BTW what is the current status of Channel V? What is it showing? Certainly it won't become Star Sports 1 Kannada until the IPL starts.

That means whole star sports network would show IPL for 45 days, No other option for sports lover for 1.5 months, This is ridiculous.

Nothing ridiculous, I think they should also broadcast IPL in all star network(non sports) chs in all 22 official languages after all they need to raise 4000 crore(sony made 1300 crore in 2017) to make break even otherwise they will become bankrupt
