Australian cricket TV guide – How to watch and stream every game

Glenn Maxwell congratulates David WarnerThe Australian summer of cricket is here, with a plethora of matches for you to watch until the end of the season. The Roar has all the information you need to watch every minute of all Australian domestic and international matches in 2018-19 right here.

Until 2017-18, all home matches have been broadcast on Channel Nine. From 2018-19, a new TV deal is due to be signed, meaning the channel may change.

With tennis going to the Nine Network, it now appears likely.

For away games, Fox Sports normally deal with away boards to secure the rights to matches, such as the recent tour to South Africa, or the upcoming ones to England and Zimbabwe..

Big Bash

The 2017-18 Big Bash League was broadcast live and in full on Network Ten. A new TV deal is due to be signed before the 2018-19 season kicks off though, meaning the Big Bash may move from Ten.

The full fixtures for the competition can be found here.

Domestic cricket

Australia’s remaining domestic competitions won’t be shown on free-to-air or pay TV. Instead, you’ll have to head to cricket.com.au to watch the JLT Cup (the domestic one-day cup formerly known as the Matador Cup) and the Sheffield Shield.

The live streams are available to viewers for free, but you will need to get yourself a Cricket ID to gain access to the coverage.

Following the English tour, Australia are scheduled to play a Test and 3 ODI’s in Zimbabwe, before hosting Bangladesh in a winter series. It’s unclear where these matches will be shown, but likely the home series on whichever network locks in a deal with Cricket Australia and away series on Foxtel should they go ahead.
