Sky announces summer of cricket coverage

SKY Sport is delighted to bring viewers every single BLACKCAPS International fixture, both home and away throughout the 2011-2012 season.

From this month’s tour of Australia, right through until the final day of the 3rd Test Match against South Africa at the end of March, SKY Sport will be right there, following every twist and turn of the ball.

SKY Sport 1 will show every BLACKCAPS game in New Zealand LIVE, with replay highlights on SKY Sport 2 and SKY Sport 3 across the season, and most HRV Cup games will be shown LIVE.

PRIME’s ongoing commitment to showing free-to-air cricket continues for the 2011-12 season with at least three matches LIVE on Prime, plus highlights packages from every BLACKCAPS International across the summer.

Coverage of every BLACKCAPS International match and televised HRV Cup games over the summer, with LIVE streaming to SKY Sport subscribers.

Viewers will be able to access cricket from anywhere they have internet access and a computer.

SKY Mobile TV will feature highlights from every match played over SKY’s Summer of Cricket. This service, unique to SKY and Vodafone, will allow cricket fans to follow all the best bits from each match at home or at the beach.

SKY Sport’s very own website will have up to date news, views and highlights from each cricket match. Get all the latest information, including the team announcements and the schedule of where each game is played. Keep an eye out too, for the Dilmah Tea Party which features at the lunchtime break during International Test Matches.

As well as the latest sports news every half hour, SKY Sport Highlights (Channel 033) will feature 25 minute highlights packages from all televised HRV Cup matches and all BLACKCAPS International cricket matches over the summer season.

Replayed every few hours for those who are short on time, rest assured that a handful of New Zealand’s most experienced producers will be tasked with the job to find every six belted over the rope and every ball which smacks into the wickets.
