A new Big Bash season looms as the Sydney Sixers look to defend their position atop Australia’s premier Twenty20 competition. Here’s how to live stream BBL10 or watch the entire 2020-21 season on TV.
How to watch Big Bash cricket online There are no free options to live stream BBL10. The online streaming rights have been given exclusively to Kayo Sports and Foxtel for the upcoming season commencing on December 10. Hence, you won’t be able to watch your favourite teams live on 7plus.
However, Kayo Sports will be showing Fox Sports’ coverage of the Big Bash live and on-demand on their online digital platform. The streaming service has a 14-day free trial available for new customers, but once that expires you’ll have to sign up for a $25 monthly subscription.
Foxtel Now will also show Australia’s homegrown Twenty-20 competition live and on-demand. The streaming service is a bit more on the expensive side but they too have a free trial on offer, this one lasting ten days. If this option tickles your fancy, make sure to include the sports pack in your monthly plan.
Streaming is a breeze for existing Foxtel customers, just log in to your account on Foxtel Go to start viewing the Big Bash live.
How to watch Big Bash cricket on TV Channel Seven will air most of the BBL10 season and all of the finals games live on their main free-to-air channel. Double check on your local guide throughout the season, however, to ensure that the game isn’t broadcast on any of Seven’s other channels. They will often have a brief 15-minute pre-game intro and a longer post-match review lasting around half-an-hour.
Foxtel will screen every match of the 61-game season, including the finals, live on their dedicated Fox cricket channel – Fox Sports 501. Their pre-game coverage usually starts 30 minutes before the first ball, while the second innings is promptly followed by a 20-min post-game wrap up.
How to listen to Big Bash cricket on radio The Macquarie Radio Network will provide live radio coverage of the 2020-21 BBL season for every match on channels 2UE, 3AW, 4BC and 6PR, as well as nation-wide on the Crocmedia network.
The easiest way to access the Twenty-20 radio coverage for free is by downloading the Cricket Australia Live app or by accessing it through the cricket.com.au match centre, which will require an account.
Big Bash cricket start times Most games are set to begin at 7:15pm (AEDT) but there will also be a handful starting later than this. Around a dozen matches will commence earlier in the afternoon and just two will get underway before midday.
