The Ashes

Unlike most international cricket, the Ashes are locked into a pre-existing broadcast agreement with the Nine Network.

Under Australia’s anti-siphoning laws, the Ashes must be shown on free to air TV if a network wants them, and Channel Nine hold the rights.

They will broadcast all five Tests on 9Gem, which can be found on Channel 95 in high definition, or Channel 92 in standard definition.

To stream the Ashes, you’ll want to use 9Now.

As of last summer, international cricket fixtures played in Australia are broadcast on Foxtel and Channel Seven.

Test matches
Both Seven and Fox will simulcast the upcoming Test series against Pakistan and New Zealand. Fox’s coverage will be on Fox Cricket (501), while Seven’s coverage may vary between Seven proper or 7mate – check your local listings for confirmation.

Limited overs matches
Fox Sports have exclusive rights to broadcast ODIs and T20Is, meaning they’ll be the sole broadcasters of the T20 series with Sri Lanka and Pakistan and March’s ODI series against New Zealand. Like the Tests, this will be available on Fox Cricket (501).

Away matches
Away games are, once again, exclusive to Fox Sports. This includes Tests, ODIs and T20Is although it excludes the upcoming Ashes series, as Nine had already secured the rights to it prior to the current TV rights deal coming into effect.

Live streaming
As far as live streaming goes, your best option will be to use Kayo. They’ll have every upcoming Australian international cricket game – except the Ashes – live.
