Sky Sports expands England cricket tour rights
September 20, 2012
Sky Sports has secured six more England overseas tours, including next year’s Ashes, under three new deals.
Long-term agreements with three international cricket boards will bring a range of live Test cricket from Australia (2012-2016), South Africa (2012-2020) and India (2012-2018) and give Sky Sports viewers exclusive live coverage of six England overseas series as well as Test cricket featuring every Test nation.
These deals bolster the schedule of year-round cricket which already includes England’s home Tests, One-Day Internationals, Twenty20 International matches, ICC events, county and women’s matches plus a range of support programming including Cricket AM and Cricket Writers on TV.
