Sky Sports has been awarded four more years of live international and county cricket under a new deal with the ECB. The England & Wales Cricket Board announced a new agreement with Sky for coverage across TV, mobile and online. With the existing deal concluding at the end of 2013, the new deal begins in 2014 and continues until the end of the summer in 2017.
The deal will take Sky’s partnership with the ECB for exclusive live cricket in England and Wales into its 12th year. There is also an option for Sky to extend the deal for an additional two years to cover tours by India in 2018 and Australia in 2019.
