Live, on YouTube: a sports event you'll not be able to watch

January 22, 2010 | 12:34 pm

Ipl YouTube is about to show live, for the first time, a major sports event. But is that cricket?

Unfortunately, for sports fans in the U.S., it is.

The online video service, owned by Google, will be showing 60 cricket matches of an upcoming India Premier League tournament. 

Cricket is not exactly a big deal in the U.S. But even fans of the sport who reside here will not be able to watch the YouTube presentation -- it will be blocked from computers in this country.

For details, see the Tech Blog.
