Where to watch BBL T20 cricket live in Australia
There are 2 ways to watch BBL live in Australia.
Every game of BBL|13 will be telecast live and ad-break free during play by Fox Cricket. That means Foxtel iQ, Foxtel Now and Kayo are all options for catching all the BBL action.
You can also catch some games on free-to-air television via Channel 7. But like previous seasons, 7 only has the rights to around 25% fewer BBL games across the season compared to Fox Cricket.
The cheapest way to watch BBL is via Channel 7 for free, but you won't be able to watch all the games.
If you want to watch every game of BBL|13, the cheapest way to watch is to get a subscription to Kayo.
Finder has done a breakdown on how each team fares in the split between having regular-season games broadcast on free-to-air TV and only via a subscription service. Due to the shortened schedule for BBL|13, the most any team has is 3 games that are available via subscription only. Those teams are Adelaide Strikers, Melbourne Stars, Sydney Sixers and Sydney Thunder. If you're a fan of any of those teams, you have to watch the most games of any team in the comp via a subscription service. Those that follow the other teams in the comp have only 2 games that are subscription only.
Watch BBL on free-to-air TV on Channel 7
Your only free-to-air option when it comes to watching the BBL is Channel 7, which has limited coverage. Coverage will be on both the main Channel 7 and multi-channel 7mate. Out of the 40 regular-season BBL matches, Channel 7 has the rights to broadcast 30 of them. It also has access to all 4 finals.
This means you can watch about three-quarters of the BBL season for free, but the coverage will contain ads.
The 7 Network's streaming service 7plus is not streaming the BBL, it is only showing it via broadcast TV.
Live stream BBL on Kayo
You can also catch every match all season long, live and ad-break free during play, plus with heaps of unique special features on Kayo. A 7-day free trial is available for new customers.
Subscriptions to Kayo start from $25 a month and let you watch on 1 device at a time. If you want to view on 2 devices at once it's $30 a month while a third simultaneous stream means the cost is $35 a month.
Kayo is compatible with iOS, Android, Apple TV, PS4, PS5, Telstra TV and selected smart TVs as well as Chromecast. It also has a whopping 50 sports to choose from, including the Australian cricket summer with all Test and ODI matches.
Live stream BBL via Foxtel Now
You can also stream the BBL via Foxtel Now, but you need to subscribe to the Sport pack, which you can only get in combination with the base Essentials pack. That brings your total cost to $54 a month. There is no longer a free trial. Although it is a more expensive option than Kayo, you do get access to entertainment as well as sport.
The Foxtel Now app is available on a host of devices, such as iOS, Android, Android TV, selected smart TVs, Telstra TV, PC, Mac, Chromecast, Foxtel Now box and PlayStation 3 and 4.
You can also watch BBL via Foxtel iQ and its set-top box. You can watch selected games 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 watch the BBL, you'll need the Sports HD pack, which costs $77 a month in total. So although you're getting access to a better picture quality, this is the most expensive option to watch every game of the BBL.
