Once the action at the MCG wraps up for the day, cricket lovers will have some Boxing Day BBL to sink their teeth into as the Perth Scorchers tackle the Sydney Sixers at Optus Stadium. This is The Roar’s guide to streaming the match online or watching it on TV.
The match will get underway on Thursday, December 26 at 7:10pm (AEDT), giving you plenty of time to sneak in some dinner between the end of the Test and the start of this one.
You’ve got two options if you want to catch this match on TV.
The first option is Fox Cricket, who have coverage beginning just before 7pm (AEDT). Their coverage has no ad-breaks during innings.
Access to Fox Cricket requires a valid Foxtel TV subscription.
Channel 7 will also have a free-to-air broadcast of the game, with coverage beginning at 7pm. Both networks’ broadcasts will cease at 10:30pm, providing the match goes the full distance.
There are two ways to stream the Big Bash League this season.
Kayo Sports is probably your best bet on this front, with the service allowing you to stream just about every sporting event in Australia for just $25 a month.
Alternatively, you can stream the game on Foxtel GO, which is included in your existing Foxtel package if you’re a subscriber.
Despite 7Plus normally providing a free stream of Channel 7’s TV content, this agreement does not include the cricket.
