Australia Cricket Live Streaming and 2019 Free to Air TV Fixtures


List of Cricket live streaming apps in Australia

Australia, as one of the oldest and most influential cricketing nations in the world, always has a major role to play in all formats of the game, and a calendar filled to the brim with important matches.

With a big summer of cricket set to take place over the coming months it will be difficult to stay on top of all the action, but using the information provided here you won’t have to miss a minute when watching live on TV or streaming the matches to a mobile device.

Pakistan vs Australia Cricket T20 TV Preview

Australia has kicked off the summer in style after they enjoyed a few months off to celebrate their retention of The Ashes in England earlier this year. Welcoming a Sri Lanka team which made the trip down under on the back of an impressive T20 series win against Pakistan, Australia won the first game of the series by a massive 134 runs and never looked back. They went on to win the series 3-0 without ever seeming likely to lose a game, and head into the series against a more competitive Pakistan outfit with a lot of confidence.

Pakistan is the number one ranked T20I side in the world, but they enter the series with indifferent form and against an Australian team which is looking more and more formidable with each outing. David Warner looks like he’s back to his best while Steve Smith and Aaron Finch are also in good form, and with an elite rotation of high quality pace bowlers the home side is looking tough to beat. They’ll be expecting to take out this series despite the teams’ respective rankings, and you won’t have to miss a key minute when you can mobile stream cricket live with the apps and devices listed here.

Stream Cricket Live and Free

Channel 7 is the designated Cricket free to air broadcaster this summer in Australia, but due to TV rights the Seven Network’s coverage is very limited and includes multiple ad-breaks during play. However, Fox Cricket (Foxtel/Kayo) will provide LIVE coverage of each and every Test, T20 and ODI involving Australia that takes during this season’s summer of cricket. This includes replays of the action you may have missed, and the option to watch the scheduled cricket broadcasts online with compatible devices.

New Zealand Tour of Australia

The summer of cricket continues over the New Year with a visit from old foes the New Zealand Black Caps, who will head across the pond for a three Test series beginning in December. The Boxing Day Test, which will see close to 100,000 fans pile into the MCG on the 26th of December, and the New Year’s Test in Sydney will headline New Zealand’s attempt to win their first Test series on Australian soil since 1986 – perfectly feasible for a team ranked second in the world in the longest form of the game.

India Tour of Australia

A week after the Kiwis’ extended tour ends, Australia heads to India for three ODI’s in a match-up which always demands plenty of attention. Virat Kohli and his men are perhaps the most talented 50-over team in world cricket and defeated Australia in Australia in early 2019, but the most recent series between the two saw Australia win 3-2 on Indian soil. One of the biggest rivalries in world cricket, there is always an added edge to games played between India and Australia, so this series shapes up as a must-watch.

Cricket Programming and ICC Viewership Guide

As Australian viewers experienced during the ICC World Cup broadcasts, there will be a central television production that will be nearly identical across Foxtel, Kayo Sports and Nine/GEM during the live on-air action when each is broadcasting. One of the biggest multi-channel differences will be that Nine/GEM will feature regular ad-breaks during play, while Foxtel/Kayo are promising ad-break free delivery during the live action, as well as host of Cricket documentaries and other specialised programming.

The ICC have also promised to deliver a “state-of-the-art graphics package to visually enhance the crucial scores and statistics”. Each broadcast will therefore have a minimum of 32 cameras situated through-out the stadium, to include eight high-tech motion detecting Hawk-Eye cameras, front and reverse view stump-cams, as well as a “Spidercam”. As such, there will be 360-degree TV replays, as well as a variety of analytical and visual enhancements which include player tracking and “CricViz” data feeds. Also, the ICC will have a roving buggy camera on the ground, something Foxtel and Kayo Sports viewers experienced during the previous Summer of Cricket.

While the ICC is promising unique coverage, Kayo Sports is not to be outdone and will provide cricket fans with enhanced programming starting with Pakistan’s Tour of Australia in November. Special features available on Kayo in Australia will be on display throughout each Test and T20 contest, and include Kayo’s “No Spoilers” option which will enable fans who have missed the match entirely, or joined late, to switch off the scores and watch the action as if it were live. Kayo’s “Key Moments” option will also be available in the alternate coverage, which means fans will get quick access to all the match highlights. When selecting from the televised events video timeline, users can easily jump between any ‘Key Moment’ and the live action.

Watch Cricket Live in 4K HD

The 2019 year of cricket promises to be broadcast in a way never before seen by Foxtel’s newest offering, the 4K channel. The Ultra HD coverage will enable viewers to feel more immersed in the action, with the colours, sounds and movement of every delivery being broadcast with incredible clarity straight to your living room. While the feature was introduced for this year’s Bathurst 1000, and with great success, cricket ultimately will act as a pioneer for 4K, and every contest of the men’s international summer touring and all of this year’s Big Bash League games will be broadcast in the newest resolution. You’ll be able to see the intensity in Mitchell Starc’s facial expressions and hear the crack of each sweetly timed cover drive so clearly, you’ll feel as though you’re there.
