Best ways to watch the Big Bash League this summer

With the Big Bash League beginning in December, it is without a doubt that it will be one of the most watched sporting events in the world, especially by the cricket-following countries that are spread throughout the world. The question for cricket lovers is how to watch the tournament if they are unable to attend the games in Australia. Well, the answer is relatively easy due to the technology of this day and age.

Currently sponsored by KFC, the Big Bash begins in December and carries on until February 2023. All teams that participate are currently Australian, but there is no doubt that will change in the future given the popularity of the version of the sport. With Big Bash League betting becoming more and more popular, it is certain other countries will want to get a piece of the action going forward.

Of course, when it comes to time differences, viewing the matches will take some forward thinking, especially depending on where the matches are being held. Luckily the technology we have now means that anyone can tune into the games live or at the very least watch replays on any device they have available.

Ways to watch the Big Bash League

If you own a television that is connected to the internet then there are many channels around the world that will broadcast the matches live with little to no cost to you other than your usual monthly payment for streaming services. If you live in Australia, Channel 7 hosts the event free-to-air, and if you have cable, FOX Cricket will be your go-to. Kayo Sports and the 7Plus app are the way to go if you are streaming live from a device such as an Android or iPhone. Countries all around the world are also hosting the tournament including South Africa which is broadcasting on SuperSport, the United Kingdom on Sky Sports, and many South Asian countries that are broadcasting on Sony Six HD and SonyLIV.

If you know how to use a VPN, then it doesn’t matter where you are and you can stream the game from wherever country you are. Keep in mind that if you have a video game console such as an Xbox One or PlayStation 5, you will also be able to tune into the game provided you have an internet connection.

Alternative ways to watch

Given the popularity of the game and the size of the country that is Australia, it is obvious that not everyone will be able to attend the matches in person, but if you are in Australia during the games, it is highly recommended that you strive to attend at least one match during your time here. There will also be many sporting locations such as bars and restaurants that will be hosting the games so that is another avenue worth checking out if you do not stay at home or be glued to your electronic devices.

If you do decide to stay at home then you can create an event and invite your friends and family around and watch the matches in the comfort of your own home all the while enjoying the company of people that you may not have seen in a while. The Big Bash League is one of the best ways to celebrate the Australian summer, relax and enjoy.
