Fox Sports retains IPL rights in Australia

Pay-television broadcaster Fox Sports has renewed a rights deal in Australia for the 2019 season of the Indian Premier League Twenty20 cricket tournament.

Live coverage will be shown across the Fox Sports and Fox Cricket channels, which are available on the Foxtel pay-television operator. Foxtel Go and Foxtel Now streaming services will also show matches.

In addition, all matches will be available to stream live via the Kayo Sports digital service, which is operated by Foxtel.

The six-week tournament will start on March 23, although the tournament’s full schedule has not yet been confirmed.

Star India is the IPL’s worldwide rights distribution partner in a five-year deal that will run until 2022.
