Well , I remember touching on this last year, and now it’s happened, channel Basil and Foxtel have all the cricket rights.

New big bash rights have gone

Fri, 2018-04-13 13:34

New big bash rights have gone to Foxtel according to the ABC... Happy to be corrected!

"We are disappointed that our bid for the cricket television rights was rejected," Network Ten chief executive officer Paul Anderson said.

"Network Ten turned the Big Bash League into the television phenomenon it is today and one of the most popular sports in Australia, a sport that all Australians were able enjoy for free."

Wow. I'll be 38 next month so

Wow. I'll be 38 next month so have only ever known the cricket to be on Nine and having the WWOS tune at the start of a Test. Can't say I've been particularly attached to the commentary team since Richie and Tony left and it was a mere boys club for ex players until it began to improve just recently. I wonder if we'll get roaming Brian in the changerooms at the end of the days play? 

Pretty piss poor for CA to turn their backs on Ten after they plucked the Big Bash from obscurity and turned it into the beast it is today but I guess money talks and bullshit walks.

 Looks like BBL will be on channel Basil so that’s good news, here is the email from cricket Australia 

 

Landmark Cricket broadcast partnership announced Australian cricket fans will have access to more cricket coverage than ever following a landmark partnership with FOX SPORTS and Seven West Media, announced by Cricket Australia (CA) today.

Women’s cricket has been placed at the forefront of the partnership with all Women’s Commonwealth Bank International matches and 23 Rebel Women’s Big Bash League (WBBL) matches each season to be broadcast on Seven and FOX SPORTS. CA will live stream the remaining WBBL matches on cricket.com.au and the CA Live App. In addition to women’s cricket, Men’s International Cricket will take a new shape, with Seven and FOX SPORTS broadcasting all Test Matches throughout the summer.

FOX SPORTS will exclusively broadcast Men’s Gillette One-Day and T20 Internationals. This summer the KFC Big Bash League (BBL) will become a full Home and Away season for the first time. Identical to last season 43 BBL matches will be broadcast on free to air TV through new partner Seven, while FOX SPORTS will broadcast all 59 matches. There will also be a new digital partnership between FOX SPORTS and CA’s digital arm, Cricket Network. This partnership will bring more content than ever to Cricket Australia Live App and cricket.com.au users.

FOX SPORTS will also launch a dedicated FOX cricket channel along with broadcasting 13 JLT One-Day Cup matches, the JLT Sheffield Shield Final along with some Tour matches. Cricket Australia will continue to deliver broadcast-quality streaming of matches not broadcast by the two networks including International tour matches, non-broadcast JLT One-Day Cup and JLT Sheffield Shield matches, all available through cricket.com.au and the CA Live Pass. Fans will also still be able to access all the highlights they have come to enjoy through cricket.com.au and Cricket Australia Live.
