For all the folks who have bought Star Sports India package ($1 on Groupon India / $2 on Star Sports India site) using the following deal and are stuck with issues on slow VPN (ZenMate) (Including Myself):


https://slickdeals.net/f/7664598-legit-cricket-world-cup-live-hd-for-2?v=1

Assuming you have access to star sports and have purchased the package or plan to purchase.

If you do not have a paid subscription, you can still catch the game if you are OK having approx 10 mins delay from the live-pro stream on starsports [starsports.com] or hotstar [hotstar.com]. Use the process mentioned below.

Following process will hopefully solve the issue of choppy/ Non-HD reception. This works in Firefox and Chrome:

1. Firefox -> Tools -> Add-ons -> search for "X-Forwarded-For Header 1.0.1.1"
2. Select and Install it.
3. Click Preferences (Mac)/Options(Windows) for the Add-on.
4. Enter the country IP Address (from Step 5).
5. Get any IP within range from here Indian IP Addresses [nirsoft.net] for India.
6. Now head to StarSports and Enjoy HD Broadcast of Cricket World Cup 2015.


I have been watching England vs Scotland without any issues in HD.
To verify your IP did update to India from within firefox, open speedtest.net and check where it is trying to ping nearest servers.

PS: I could not find this method on SD, hence thought of posting it.

[Update] For Chrome:

1. Install ModHeader [google.com]

2. Under Requested Header
Name -> X-Forwarded-For
Value -> IP address from Firefox Method (Step 5) .


3. Enjoy World Cup on Chrome.

Thanks jainnatural for this update



Disable Zenmate or any other VPN client before using above procedures. VPN are overhead and are point of bottleneck for this.

IP Addresses above are Begin and End IP Range (Pick anything in between those range).
For Example: 1.7.11.12, 1.6.13.14, 1.7.22.33, etc..

For people looking for solution on Kodi/XBMC for free stream in HD can try following by using the SportsDevil Add-on for Kodi/XBMC. Process mentioned Here [seo-michael.co.uk].

SportsDevil -> Sports TV -> Cricket -> CricketEmbeds.com -> There are typically 2-3 streams on OSN Network


For chrome-
Install this
https://chrome.google.com/webstor...jpfnnfcklj

Set the following header - X-Forwarded-For to your indian ip address.
Works like charm. Enjoy with chromecast

I could stream from http://www.hotstar.com/ without buying any package, but set X-Forwarded-For header. Quality seems to same as starsports.com

Thank you sir! I am a big fan of the game, and would not like to feel cheated on having it and not able to use it (No matter it is a 1000$ or 1$). I thought I would share this. I owe a lot to SD community.
