Cricket broadcasting rights are likely to be shared by the free-to-air and pay-TV sectors, after Cricket Australia rejected a joint bid by the Nine and Ten networks. CBS executive Armando Nunez has also met with Tennis Australia officials, although his priority is said to be retaining Ten’s broadcasting rights to Big Bash League matches. Meanwhile, Facebook and Google have declined to comment on whether they have expressed interest in acquiring cricket streaming rights.
