Australia will look to claim their second consecutive Women’s World T20 title – and fifth overall – when the 2020 edition of the tournament gets underway on Friday, February 21. This is The Roar’s comprehensive guide to live streaming the Women’s T20 World Cup, or watching it on TV.
Australia have won four of the six editions of the Women’s World T20 and will look to back up their 2018 triumph at home. They’ll play against India, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka and New Zealand in the group stage.
The semi-finals will be played on March 5, with the final itself to be played on Sunday, March 8.
If it’s Australian matches you’re after, you’ll have two options as far as TV is concerned.
If you want to watch every match of the tournament, however, your only option is Fox Cricket. They’ll have every match of the tournament live and free of ad-breaks during each innings of play.
Fox Cricket is available on Foxtel channel 501 and, as you can expect, requires a valid Foxtel TV subscription to access.
However, there is also a free-to-air option in the form of 9GEM. They’ll have every match featuring Australia in the group stage live, while also broadcasting all three finals matches live – regardless of whether the Southern Stars qualify.
Similarly to the TV options, live streamers will have two options for watching Australian matches, but only one if they’re interested in streaming every game.
If it’s every game you’re after, you’ll need to use Kayo Sports, a streaming application available on most computer and mobile devices. They’ll have access to all of Fox Cricket’s broadcasts, as well as on-demand replays. A Kayo subscription costs $25 a month, but you may eligible for a free trial if you’ve never used the service before.
If you have a Foxtel subscription already, you don’t need to pay extra for Kayo. Just use the Foxtel GO app, which is included in your subscription.
You’ll be able to stream Australia’s matches and the finals through 9Now, but not other matches.
At The Roar, we’ll have Australia’s games covered with live blogs. As always, there’ll be plenty of expert analysis and fan opinion on the site too.
