Satellite TV to lose cricket

Bookmark and Share

by David Allen

When the Ashes were aired on Sky Sports during the summer over two million viewers tuned in and enjoyed the excitement of one of cricket’s main events.

However according to records, during the 2005 Ashes tournament over seven million viewers tuned in to watch the games.

This indicates that this year over five million fans had to do without watching live cricket, due to it only being shown on Sky Sports.

It seems that the glorious “Crown Jewels” of sport, instead of getting smaller, could be expanding further, with Test matches returning to terrestrial TV for all to see.

The other events covered by this rule are the Olympics, the World Cup and Wimbledon.
