A breakdown of the choices fans now have to view international and domestic cricket in Australia

Men's Domain Test matches

Men's Tests in Australia will now be shown on two broadcast channels, with Seven and Fox Sports buying the rights for the next six years. It means Channel Nine will not broadcast Australia's home Tests for the first time in 40 years, but Nine have already signed a deal to broadcast the 2019 away Ashes series in the UK.

Commonwealth Bank women's international matches

In a landmark deal for women's cricket, all home internationals played by Australia’s national women’s team will be shown on free-to-air television for the very first time. Both Seven and Fox Sports will broadcast all of Australia's home Tests, ODIs and T20Is every summer for the next six years.

Fox Cricket will also broadcast every match from the Women's World T20 in November, while the Nine Network will be simulcasting the games involving Australia.

Gillette men's ODIs and T20Is

Fox Sports have secured exclusive rights to broadcast Australia's home one-day internationals and T20 internationals, meaning these matches will not be shown on free-to-air television. As well as on Foxtel, fans can watch the limited-overs matches against Australia on the CA Live app and cricket.com.au.

However, the 2019 World Cup and the 2020 World T20 will be broadcast on free-to-air by Channel Nine due to pre-existing deals with the ICC.

KFC Big Bash League

The hugely-successful BBL has been expanded to a full home-and-away season for the first time, with a total of 59 matches to be played – 56 round games, two semi-finals and the final. It will no longer be shown on Network Ten; Seven Network will show 43 games on free-to-air, while Fox Sports will simulcast those 43 matches and also broadcast the 16 games not shown on Seven. The expanded BBL season means the same number of matches will be shown on free-to-air television (43) as last summer.

A full list of broadcasters for each match can be seen below.

JLT Sheffield Shield

For the first time since 2013, the Sheffield Shield final will be shown on television via Fox Sports. Cricket Network will continue to offer free live streaming of all regular-season matches.

Allan Border & Belinda Clark Medal Night

Channel Nine will also no longer broadcast Australian cricket's biggest awards night, with Seven and Fox Sports to both show the awards ceremony where the country's top cricketers are honoured each year.

Other matches

Fox Sports have committed to broadcasting the Prime Minister's XI and Governor-General's XI matches. Cricket Network will offer broadcast-quality live streaming of all remaining tour matches involving international sides against Australian domestic opponents.

On-demand highlights

The broadcast deal also includes a new digital partnership between Fox Sports and Cricket Network, which guarantees Cricket Australia's digital channels will continue to carry on-demand highlights of all cricket played in Australia. Fox Sports will also have digital rights for its platforms.
