With the first Test in Chennai just over a week away, there is still no definitive answer of where England fans will be able to watch the India-England series on TV.

Star Sports, who are owned by Disney, own the rights to international cricket played in India. Star Sports are able to sell the rights to broadcasters in other parts of the world but appeared to be choosing to keep them to themselves on this occasion.

In December the Telegraph reported that from February 23, a day before the third Test of the series gets underway, Hotstar content will be also available on Disney+. However, The Times cricket reporter Elizabeth Ammon explained on Twitter that the new Star brand joining Disney+ is unrelated to both Hotstar and Star Sports, with a statement from Disney+ explaining the streaming platform will not be the home of Hotstar content.
