This guide was produced by Reviews.org freelance writer Adam Mathew. 

As we enter the 2019/20 season (and put those ball-tampering lows of last year behind us) the future is looking bright for Aussie sports fans. That said, gone is the 40-year reign of Channel Nine television coverage – getting your fix is a more complicated procedure now that Fox Sports, Seven and Kayo Sports share the burden of bat ‘n’ ball action.

The bottom line is this: Seven is covering a selection; Fox has everything and more (think: a range of panel discussion shows and extra international matches) and Kayo Sports has it all with the exception of the 2019 Qantas Ashes Tour of the UK. Be that as it may, we’re here to give you a quick guide on what your options are, paid and freebie alike.

Pakistan tour of Australia

Australia vs Pakistan 1st test

The Australia vs Pakistan (1st Test) match will be broadcast by Seven, Fox Sports and Kayo from Thu Nov 21 – Mon Nov 26 at an 11am (AEST) time-slot.

Seven is free-to-air, is HD simulcast with Fox Sports and Kayo comes with ads.

Fox Sports costs +$29/mth with Foxtel Now Essentials, streams in HD and offers live and ad-break free coverage.

Kayo Sports costs $25 for Basic (2 screens) or $35/mth (3 screens) and comes with no lock-in contract, HD live streaming, and advanced viewing features like SplitView and real-time scores and statistics.

Australia vs Pakistan 2nd test

The Australia vs Pakistan (2nd Test – D/N) match in Adelaide Oval will be broadcast by both Seven and Fox Sports from Fri Nov 29 – Tue Dec 3 at a 2:30pm (AEST) time-slot.

Australia vs New Zealand matches

Australia vs New Zealand 1st test

The Australia vs New Zealand 1st Test (D/N) from Optus Stadium will be broadcast by Seven, Fox Sports and Kayo Sports from Thu Dec 12 – Mon Dec 16 at a 4pm (AEST) time-slot.

Fox Sports will set you back +$29/mth with Foxtel Now Essentials, it streams in HD and offers live and ad-break free coverage.

Seven is also HD, but being a free-to-air option means it is very much ad-full.

Australia vs New Zealand 2nd test

The Australia vs New Zealand 2nd Test from the MCG will be beamed out by Seven, Fox Sports and Kayo Sports from Thursday 26 December to Monday 30 December at a 10:30am time-slot.

India vs Australia 2nd ODI match

The India vs Australia 2nd ODI match at Saurashtra Stadium, Rajkot can be streamed on Friday 17 January 2019 at 7pm (AEST) on Fox Sports and Kayo.

You can also catch the 2nd ODI test match on Kayo Sports for $25 per month or $35 per month if you want to stream on 3 screens at once. Kayo also does a 14-day free trial, so technically, you can stream the match for free then have a think about whether you want to keep paying once the 14 days is up.
