A 'major drawcard' expected to boost downloads of the app is the 'Vodafone Viewers' Verdict' feature, which will allow users to cast their vote on umpire calls during the matches. Votes will be tallied and then broadcasted live on the Channel Nine news network.
“We’ve had a huge number of cricket fans voting via the Vodafone Viewers’ Verdict, and the Cricket LIVE Australia app has been one of the most popular apps to download this summer,” Vodafone Hutchison Australia (VHA) PR executive, Kyra Washington, told ARNnet.com.au.
An additional app feature is Cricket LIVE TV, which provides the ability to watch any Test, ODI, T20 and Big Bash match live with an Event Pass ($2.99 for a single match) or a Season Pass ($9.49 for all games throughout the season.)
