Disappointingly for the Aussies, it sounds like coverage for the 2005 Ashes series won’t be free-to-air. More here.
It emerged yesterday that cricket fans may miss out on free-to-air coverage for the first time in 30 years.
A sign of the times, I’m afraid. Sky Sports – who steal nearly Â£40 a month from me (otherwise known as $ky ) – have covered most England tours for years now. They simply outbid the BBC, which isn’t difficult. Channel 4 cover England’s home-series, and are FTA, but still Sky manage to cover at least one Test during the summer.
Nowt you can do about it, Aussies
