Want to watch the Australian cricket team strut their stuff at home and overseas? We’ve got you covered with our international cricket live stream guide.

Due to a new TV rights deal, a lot has changed in terms of how to live stream cricket in Australia.

How to live stream cricket in Australia

The easiest option to live stream home matches will be through Kayo, which is a new sports streaming service.

Kayo will allow you stream just about any Australian cricket match; Test, ODI or T20, live on your preferred device. While it does require a subscription, it is by far the easiest way to get all Australian cricket matches through one service.

If you’re looking to live stream for free, you’re out of luck – Seven’s coverage of the cricket is not available to stream via their 7plus service.

ODIs and T20s are now exclusive to Fox Sports, so you’ll need either the Foxtel App (if you’ve already got a Foxtel TV subscription), or you’ll need to subscribe to Foxtel Now.

If you want to watch Australia’s matches when they’re on tour, the best option would once again be Kayo, where you’ll be able to live stream Fox Sports’ cricket coverage.

As Foxtel are the rights-holders for all of Australia’s overseas tours, excluding the Ashes, they have you covered across both online streaming and TV.

A Foxtel Now subscription is what you want if you’re just after if you only want to live-stream the cricket. A standard subscription will only cost you $25 per month, however once you add the necessary sports package you’ll need to watch the cricket to your deal, that rises to $50 per month.

Foxtel Now can be watched through a variety of devices, including your computer, mobile, tablet, PlayStation 3 or 4 and Xbox One.

For first-time users, you can see if Foxtel Now is for you with a two-week free trial. Or you could just use the trial to watch the cricket for free for a couple of weeks. Both are valid options.

Now, if you’ve already got a Foxtel TV subscription, you can download the Foxtel App to get access to all of your content on your mobile, tablet or computer. The app is available to download for both iOS and Android devices.

As is the case for live streaming, cricket.com.au is the place to go to stream radio coverage of the cricket online. While it’s free, you will still need to sign up for a cricket ID.

How to watch the cricket on TV

Under the new TV broadcast detail, Fox Sports will have every single international match played by both the men’s and women’s team in Australia, to go with every match of the Big Bash League and a number of WBBL matches.

Channel Seven will broadcast Test matches, women’s international matches and most of the BBL.
