Meet the new boss / Same as the old boss..
So in summery we have
Chan nein with tests and Odis and international T20s
Chan ten with the big bash
Fox with domestic cricket
Is this correct
I'm pretty sure that Ten along with the BBL will have the rest of domestic cricket too. How much coverage they will give it I don't know.
So it looks like the likes of Twatto, Big Show and Notch will be up for a pay rise.
"well the team on the field is pretty good"
Oh Richie! :roll:
Perhaps they should ditch showing movies and go back to being a sports channel
I'm actually not sure about this now. I think the rights for domestic cricket is still up. Hopefully Fox Sports do get them.
I'm surprised CA didn't bundle all T20 (BBL and Internationals) together. Would they have gotten more if they had done that?
CA are making an announcement this afternoon to do with the TV rights so we'll find out more than.
Nine has all international cricket games involving Australia
Ten has all Big Bash games
Fox has all Ryobi cup games
Whenever I see Gyngell talk, I like him less and less.
Is that just in Australia or overseas as well ?
Probably just in Australia. Fox seems to have mortgage on Australia's overseas tours
Is the Ashes in England up for grabs or does Fox pretty much have it covered?
Last few times its been on SBS and Ch 7 also.
9 have it this year
Aren't the Ashes on the anti-syphoning list. That is how SBS ended up with it back in 2005 when Nine passed on it.
As long as its also on Fox Sports where you wont miss anything
Ch 9 will probably put it on Gem when the NRL is on.
AUSTRALIA could soon be hosting night Test cricket on prime time television under the sport's new $500 million deal with Channel 9.
Although next summer's Ashes schedule is finalised for day fixtures, a starting date for the following season against India in November 2014 is under serious consideration.
Adelaide is currently the favoured venue for the launch because of the city's dryer night conditions.
The hours of play would likely to be between 1pm and 9pm.
"Channel 9 is really keen to see it happen," said network supremo David Gyngell. "We will do everything possible to work alongside Cricket Australia on the future of Tests under lights."
Cricket Australia has confirmed night games at venues across the country are a priority in future planning.
"James Sutherland has always said night Test cricket is a matter of when, not if," said spokesman Peter Young.
"The possibility has moved forward with the ICC decision that countries can play Tests at night if they jointly agree."
Night cricket would give Channel 9 a much better chance of recouping the $80 million a year that they are currently spending on cricket rights.
It allows the network to increase advertising rates and offsets the costs of having to buy other shows for prime time viewing.
It also has its bonuses for Cricket Australia's future hope for growth in attendances. A five-day cricket Test in this country normally covers a weekend and three working days unless there are public holidays.
It would give fans the chance to finish work at five and catch almost the final two sessions at the ground.
