The Cricket World Cup will go up another gear as we get a preview of the Ashes, when Australia take on England at the holy grail of cricket, Lord’s. This is The Roar’s guide to streaming the match online, or watching it on TV.
This huge contest is scheduled to be played in London, at Lord’s, with the first ball set to be bowled at 7:30pm (AEST) on Tuesday, August 25.
There will be a couple of ways to watch the match on TV in Australia, with it being available through both Cricket World Cup broadcasters.
The best option is to tune in through Fox Sports, on their 24/7 cricket channel, Fox Cricket which can be found on 501.
Their pre-game will begin at 6:30pm (AEST), and the coverage features no ad breaks during play.
To watch the Fox Cricket coverage, you will need to have a valid Foxtel TV subscription complete with the sports package of channels.
The other way to tune into the coverage will be through 9Gem, on Channel 92. They are also launching a HD channel for the remaining World Cup matches, which will be on Channel 95.
The match can also be streamed online in a number of ways, using either the Foxtel or Channel 9 coverage.
The best way to live stream the Foxtel coverage will be through Kayo Sports, who have rights to show all of Foxtel’s sports channels plus other selected events for $25 per month.
Otherwise, you can live stream Channel 9s coverage on 9Now.
Don’t forget to also tune in here at The Roar, where we will carry a ball-by-ball live blog, all the up to date scores, and the big match moments in highlight form.
