Not certain yet if they have the rights but Neo Cricket on Starhub might be playing it.

I checked out the guide at:
http://www.starhub.com/entertainment/tvguide.html

and I can't find Ashes coverage. Maybe Singtel grabbed the rights?

Singtel have the rights to this - it will be shown on Star Cricket and Star Cricket plus. I've had the Singtel service for about 3 months and MIO TV is actually great.

The subscription to Star Sports cricket is $40 per month or $120 for the year. The yearly price is a no brainer if you like to catch some of the international matches on throughout the year.

The base subscription you need to take for MIO TV is about $25 dollars or maybe less, but $25 per month which gets you all the BPL over the weekends and you need to pay a quarterly charge for phone line rental charges.

I was cynical at first as I heard bad things about Singtel and I also use Starhub, but Singtel TV is much more stable than Starhub. For Singtel, all in costs me about $40 a month and gets the Mrs out of the house too when the sport is on!!

Good point. We seem to be blocked form all the English channels on the net in Singapore!!

How about running a proxy site and using BBC TMS through that? Or looking for an internet radio app - sorry I never use it so can't recommend anything.
