Star Sports and Viacom18 are tussling for bragging rights with the IPL 2023 on the horizon. Having spent a fortune each on getting their media rights, the two broadcast giants have ramped up their preparation to woo the audiences on their side. Viacom18 has been particularly aggressive, given it is their first experience in IPL broadcast. All matches will air for free on Jio Cinema in 4K ultra HD.
