BT Sport have seized the rights to the 2017-18 series Down Under from arch-rivals Sky in a major coup.

BT Sport have secured the UK contract for Aussie home matches from Cricket Australia for the next five years.

It is believed to be costing them around £16million a year.

The deal’s centrepiece is the next Ashes clash in 2017-18, when the home side will be hellbent on regaining the urn.

Losing that showcase series is a massive blow to Sky, whose cricket coverage has set new standards. Only football is more important to the broadcaster than cricket.

But Sky, following their £11m-a-match Premier League deal, were not able to compete with BT’s £80m offer for cricket rights,which starts with the Australian 2016-17 season.

Sky will broadcast its first ever free-to-air live match on the opening day of the new season amid its escalating battle with BT Sport.

As part of a revamped schedule, it will show its 5.30pm Premier League kick-off live on 17 August as well as a Football League match live at lunchtime

In the face of BT’s marketing onslaught, Sky is keen to emphasise it still has vastly more Premier League matches – 116 live games for which it is paying £2.3bn over three years – and its range of live sport.

Sky Sports 1 will shift to Sky 2 for the day, allowing Sky viewers who do not subscribe to the sports package to watch for nothing, and on Freeview and YouView services (only available in the UK and not Spain) it will take over Pick TV for the day.

Sky and BT are currently going head to head in picking their first tranche of live matches, with the results expected to be announced in the first week of July. BT has emphasised its 15 “first pick” matches, but Sky still retains the upper hand because it can decide which weekends it has first choice on.

 

 

The weekend schedule is as follows:

Saturday: (available free on Saturday, August 17)
10am – Soccer AM
Helen Chamberlain and Max Rushden return for another season of football fun
