Commercial broadcaster Nine has secured exclusive rights in Australia to the 2019 Netball World Cup.

Nine will televise every Australia game, with the remaining matches to be streamed by VOD platform 9Now. The tournament takes place from July 12-21 in Liverpool, England.

Australia is the reigning World Cup champion, beating New Zealand at the 2015 event. Pay-television broadcaster Sky acquired broadcast rights to the competition in New Zealand in February.
