Fox Cricket

Off-tube, as with all their non-Sydney games.

Today’s WBBL grand final from North Sydney Oval (Sixers v Strikers) will be shown live on Fox Cricket channel 501, with the final two sessions of the final day of Prime Minister’s XI v West Indies shifted to Fox Cricket+ (channel 503).

They look like the generic version of the old ones before this look, actually. Often the bottom bit would be coloured in that sport’s colour and icon (green and the chevrons for rugby league, red and a cricket ball motif for cricket, etc) but I imagine there’d be plenty of generic ones about for general sport pressers covered by (say) Fox Sports News, for instance.

Could it be that SKY is doing the English language feed, and PCB is thus just doing a native Urdu language feed for PAK viewers only?
