Fox Sports


I’d like to see a 24/7/365 cricket channel.

If they can do it for NRL and AFL, neither of which are truly national sports like cricket is (ball tampering scandal notwithstanding), then they should be able to do it for cricket.



Why Do They Unnecessarily Capitalise The First Letter Of Every Word?!


I Have Absolutely No Idea.


With there now being a “Sky Cricket” channel in the UK, taking into consideration the success of Fox Footy/League and the fact that cricket is Australia’s most popular Summer sport (yes the ball tampering scandal has rocked the game, but Australian cricket will eventually get over this), you’d have to think that Foxtel would really like a “Fox Cricket” channel so they can retain subscribers all year round.

Of course, I’d personally like to see all forms of cricket remain exclusive to free to air TV. But from a purely business point of view, Fox Sports bidding hard for Cricket Australia Pay TV broadcast rights so they can establish a “Fox Cricket” channel does make quite a lot of sense IMO. As well as coverage from within Australia, such a channel could also run coverage of overseas tournaments (which Fox Sports has the rights to quite a lot of, if I’m not mistaken).


I’d like to see simulcasts of any free to air cricket on a dedicated FOX Cricket channel under the next rights deal (as we have now with NRL and AFL).


Getting rights to the IPL is big especially given the popularity around the world.


I wonder why it hasn’t been on air in Australia since the debut season back in 2008?
ONE HD had it then and we haven’t seen it since.

I suspect the BCCI wanted too much money for it?


As it’s a Murdoch run channel who have the rights in India and they pour $$ into the sport there it could have been a little inside rights deal to show Cricket Australia they are serious about cricket. Cause if they don’t get the rights, it will be interesting to see if they show it next year! :thinking:

I think I posted earlier in this thread there were significant legal troubles that forced it off air on One, and the previous broadcasters (Sony) wanted it for quite a lot.

Now the broadcast rights are owned by Star (A Fox/Disney? company) who would be (slightly) more favourable to Fox Sports.


No thanks. We don’t need another sport being smothered to death by the scourge of fox.

Free to air need exclusivity and sports will benefit from this rather than having the iron fist of Murdoch and his pathetic cronies monopolising sports
