Free-to-air TV on the Seven Network

For viewers in Australia, the easiest way to watch the Big Bash League is to switch on the tube and tune in to Channel 7. The Seven Network has live broadcast rights for most games on the BBL fixture list, including all three finals clashes. You have to put up with repetitive ad breaks and some awkward commentary, but it is simple, safe and 100% free for anyone who owns a digitally enabled television.

Watch live BBL games on Kayo and Foxtel

For $25 per month, you can live stream every game of the Big Bash League season on Kayo – the revolutionary streaming service people are calling the ‘Netflix of sport’. If that kind of cash seems over the top for a few T20 games, bear in mind that you also get heaps of international cricket, soccer, golf, tennis, Formula 1, Moto GP, AFL, NRL, UFC – all live, all in HD, on any device. Kayo is almost identical to the Fox Sports package on the Foxtel subscription service.

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 Seven streaming service. 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?

Channel 7’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.
