News NZC signs six-year broadcast deal with Spark Sport

#1
New Zealand Cricket and Spark Sport, a streaming service, have signed a six-year broadcast deal, it was confirmed on Thursday (October 10). The deal also brings an end to the Sky-NZC relationship that has been thriving since 1995. Sky, however, hold the rights for all domestic cricket till mid-2020.

Spark will add the men's and women's internationals, the domestic one-day cup final and T20 Super Smash. "This is a deal which future-proofs the whole of cricket in New Zealand," David White, the NZC CEO, said. "Live streaming is the future. It allows viewers to free themselves from fixed linear schedules to watch live, delayed, highlighted or clipped content when and where they choose, and on a wide range of devices.
