Free-to-air TV on Network Ten

For viewers in Australia, the easiest way to watch the Big Bash League is to switch on the tube and tune into channel ‘100’. Network Ten has exclusive live broadcast rights for every game of the BBL|07 campaign, including all three finals fixtures. You have to put up with repetitive ad breaks and some awkward commentary from Adam Gilchrist and company, but it is simple, safe and 100% free for anyone who owns a digitally enabled television.

Free live streaming on TenPlay

This new age of wireless technology and on-the-go content consumption means the trusty telly is no longer the essential household item it once was. If you have a personal computer, tablet device, or smartphone, you can watch the Big Bash live and free on TenPlay – Network Ten’s dedicated online streaming service. All games are broadcasted in real time and on demand via the website ( and the TenPlay app for iOS and Android.

Big Bash live stream online with VPN

Trying to watch the T20 Big Bash League from overseas? Your best bet is to use a virtual private network (VPN). Most leading VPN services give you the option to anchor your WiFi to an Australian IP address, which means you can dodge regional locking issues and watch live BBL games via the official TenPlay stream. That way, you don’t have to waste time and bandwidth on poor-quality video feeds at pop-up riddled pirate sites.

Do online bookmakers stream live BBL games?

Ten’s exclusive broadcast rights prevent any other Australian media provider from showing live BBL games. That includes online bookmakers, many of which offer free live streaming of domestic and international cricket along with several other sports. This situation may change in the future, but the present state of play – coupled with Cricket Australia’s push to promote the BBL as an all-ages, family-friendly affair – means punters will have to seek out other options for now.

Where can I watch Big Bash games outside Australia?

Depending on where you are in the world, you may be able to watch live Big Bash League games without hooking up a VPN, braving a free online streaming service, or even paying for cable. Live TV coverage of the BBL is now available in nine nations outside Australia:
