Channel Nine retains broadcast rights
Test cricket will remain on Channel Nine
Channel Nine has retained the rights to broadcast Australia's home international matches after agreeing to a deal worth $500 million over five years.
Nine saw off a bold bid from Channel Ten to claim the rights to Test, ODI and Twenty20 international cricket but Ten is believed to have secured a deal worth approximately $20 million a year to broadcast the Big Bash League, which will appear on free-to-air television for the first time.
Ten had made a significant play for the full cricket schedule but Nine had the right to match the bid, although that was complicated by its reluctance to sign up for the BBL.
