England & Wales Cricket Agrees To Ashes Broadcast Deal With Australia's Channel Nine
The England and Wales Cricket Board has agreed to a broadcast deal for Australia’s next two Ashes tours of England with Australian broadcaster Channel Nine. The deal includes exclusive rights in Australia to the Ashes Series and the One-Day Series and Int'l T20 matches in '15 and '19. England’s other home int'l series are not included in the package, meaning the ECB can sell these rights to other Australian broadcasters. Nine holds the Australian domestic broadcast rights for the upcoming Ashes Series which begins in Brisbane on Nov. 21 (ECB). The Int'l Cricket Council announced that 16 matches from the group stages of the upcoming World Twenty20 Qualifier UAE 2013 will be live-streamed on the ICC's official website. The event commences in the UAE (ICC).
