Australia's Big Bash League is celebrating its 11th season of colour, big hits and classic catches in BBL|11. A full season has been enjoyed after the pandemic interrupted parts of the 2020/21 campaign.
What didn't change last season was the champion, with the Sydney Sixers sealing a second straight title and a record-equalling third overall. Perth Scorchers, who finished runners-up last season, also have 3 tournament wins.
Once again there will be a mix of top and emerging Australian talents plus plenty of overseas influence across the 8 teams. These are the details you need to know.
Stream every BBL game live on Kayo: 14-day free trial
It all started on 5 December 2021, when the Sixers hosted the Melbourne Stars at the SCG. The regular season ran through to 19 January 2022, with the finals series 2 days after that. The final is on 28 January between the top 2 all year long, Perth Scorchers and Sydney Sixers at Marvel Stadium in Melbourne.
The rights to stream the Big Bash League rest with Fox Cricket and Channel 7. Foxtel iQ, Foxtel Now and Kayo Sports have the rights to all 61 games courtesy of Fox Cricket, including finals. In addition to the actual fixtures, there is pre- and post-match analysis, highlights, historical games, chat shows and more available for cricket fans to enjoy.
You can also catch some games on free-to-air television via Channel 7. But like last season, that option only has the rights to around 30% less BBL games across the season compared to Fox Cricket.
Your only free-to-air option when it comes to watching the BBL is Channel 7, which has limited coverage. Out of the 56 regular season BBL matches, Channel 7 has the rights to broadcast 40 of them. It also has access to the finals.
Kayo is compatible with iOS, Android, Apple TV, PS4, PS5, Telstra TV, Samsung TV (2017 or later), LG TV and Android TV in browsers as well as Chromecast. It also has a whopping 50 sports to pick from.
Subscriptions to Kayo start from $25/month and let you watch on 2 devices at once. If you're after a third simultaneous stream then you can upgrade to the Premium subscription which is $35 monthly.
For a more traditional pay TV experience, Foxtel and its set-top box also has the BBL. You can watch sport broadcast in 4K quality, assuming you have a compatible TV. You also get access to tons of non-sporting content and the ability to record to the iQ box.
To get the BBL on the HD sports channels ($25/month), you first need to subscribe to the Foxtel Plus pack ($49/month), a total of $74/month. You may also face installation costs, although Foxtel IQ deals are also regularly available.
Foxtel Now is a streaming alternative to the Foxtel iQ service. The Foxtel Now app is available on a host of devices, such as iOS, Android, Android TV, some Smart TVs (Samsung, LG), Telstra TV, PC, Mac, Chromecast, Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
A total of $54/month, you need to combine Sport at $29/month with the Essentials pack for $25/month. It also has a 10-day free trial. Unless you're desperate for 4K BBL or want the non-sporting channels, Kayo Sports is a clear winner to watch and stream BBL.
