Foxtel will broadcast 97 days of cricket during the 2018-19 summer, including exclusive coverage of some matches. The Fox Cricket channel was officially launched on 9 October, and to date Foxtel has secured eight premium sponsors for its cricket coverage. CEO Patrick Delany says live coverage will be advertisement-free, and ads will only be shown during lunch and tea breaks. Foxtel currently has about 5.4 million subscribers, while data from Roy Morgan shows that about 10 million Australians now have access to a Netflix subscription.
