It seems like she's all but signed, announcement to be this afternoon

http://www.abc.net.au/news/2018-04-13/cricket-coverage-shakeup-with-seven-and-foxtel-winning-rights/9652964

Quote
It is understood Seven will broadcast all Tests on home soil as well as the Big Bash.

Quote
Foxtel's Fox Sports will cover all games, taking exclusive rights to international one-day 50 overs matches and Twenty20 internationals, putting them behind a pay wall for the first time.

Quote
However, Nine is not totally out of the game for the time being.

It still has deals in place to broadcast the next Ashes series from England, the ODI World Cup in the UK in 2019 and in 2020 the T20 World Cups to be held in Australia.

There we go

Will be interesting to see who the commentators are but basically we will see less Cricket on FTA. Looks like BBL will be exclusively on Fox from what I am reading.

Oh well looks like the only cricket I will be watching is the big bash till Fox Sports get there hands on that , when I was young cricket was a really big thing for me but I now have little interest more so with current things going on so these changes are no biggie for me.

P:S Reading that again looks like BBL is gone as well oh well bye bye cricket

Articles in the morning were suggesting that the BBL would be on Fox, which I assume is what Ringo is referring to.


The commentator jumble will be fun, one thing is certain though:

Just watched the press conference and now confirmed that Mens ODI and T20 will be exclusively on Fox.  >:( >:(
So if we ant to watch have to get a Fox subscription.
Interested to see what streaming services will be available and whether it is free.

We will get 43 BBL games live on 7 though so not too bad,

This was what was interesting, and I don't know if anyone picked up on it at the media conference. But there's 16 Fox only BBL games. So that means the BBL is EXPANDING to 14 matches per side (Play every twice) and then 2 semis and a final

I hope channel 7 don't ruin cricket! This screams to me that channel 7 want the BBL and just had to take on everything else. Can't wait for ads between every ball.

Plus more women's matches. Which is where Sutherland gets the "there will be more FTA cricket with us" line from.
