For aussies ...its on fox 501 /507 etc .
Must say i have mixed feelings watching this . Some of it seems good and the quality of player is up there etc . However , a lot ( grandstands /crowds/uniforms etc etc ) of it just has a cheap feel to it .
I'll try to suspend my judgement for a while.....it would be cool if this comp really took off .

With the proposal that the ICC will limit players to just three domestic T20 leagues, I can't see that a tournament like this can survive in any meaningful way when it has to compete with the BBL/IPL/CPL/Ram Slam and even the new tournament over here.

A tournament like this is needed for associate nations, even if we lose big names something like this allows players to play competitive  cricket against players of good or better quality. Having said that I would have liked a few more Canadian players in there but it is the first season and hopefully the teams will change in following years. Money involved is not huge for the T20 pro's so I am glad they agreed to play, and happy Canada can host this.

Avenues for players here to improve and play good cricket are very limited, with qualifications to worldcup becoming harder and almost no funding this is a great shot in the arm for Canadian Cricket

Completely agree, I'm not Canadian, but it is brilliant for associate nations and also for players from the Southern Hemisphere that aren't in their nation's touring sides and don't want to either Kolpak or Overseas in County Cricket.

First couple of years let it develop, then introduce a number of Canadian players rule maybe once the standard improves. 

Personally, I think it's brilliant, and it's cricket on free-to-air TV that I can watch with my very young son, I worry about the lack of televised cricket for his sake.  I'm all for it.

I watch this as it's free and I don't have sky. Not the greatest standard but it's free so I can't complain. Tino Best's commentary is really annoying
