How To Watch The 2017-18 Ashes Cricket Series Live Online

Cricket Ashes Series 2017-18

Update: 6 December 2017, December
Oh dear, oh dear, oh dear….. Out of all the tests, England were favored to do well in Adelaide, but alas, it wasn’t to be. Australia won by 120 runs to take the series to 2-0. The tour now moves to Perth, where England have not won since 1978, whilst we’re looking at the history books, no-one has won the Ashes from 2-0 down since 1937, oh dear indeed!.
Back to normal for the rests of the tests, with start of play in Perth at 00:00 GMT on Thursday 14th December.

Audio stream is available via BBC Radio (UK) and you can watch the live video stream on SonyLIV (India) absolutely free. In addition to that, you can also catch it via BT Sport (UK), Cricket Australia (Australia), and SuperSport (South Africa) as long as you have a paid subscription to their services.

Update: 4 December 2017, Monday
We’re mid-way through the 2nd test with Australia gaining a healthy lead in the 1st Innings.

Update: 27 November 2017, Monday
Ouch, never mind the head butts, that was a thumping! Australia take the first test by 10 wickets with 173-0 in their second innings. England were very much in the game for the first three and half days, but then their tail took a hammering with some great bowling from the Aussies and they were unable to set a decent target.

Now the tour moves down south to Adelaide, in what is the first ever day / night Ashes test, complete with floodlights and pink balls, go figure. Start of play should be 0400 GMT Saturday 2nd December.

Update: 23 November 2017, Thursday
Our initial posting listed 9Now as providing live online streaming for all matches. Unfortunately this is incorrect and they will only be providing the catch-up right after the game ends. You can still view the live telecast on TV if you’re in Australia or use the official live stream online from Cricket Australia.

 
Watch? Did we say watch? Pah! There is only one way to enjoy the Ashes and that is Test Match Special on Radio 4 long wave, try explaining that to the kids today, long what? TMS is now in it’s 60th year and Aggers, Boycs, Tuffers, Vaughnie and many others will bring you ball by ball coverage of the series. Start of play in the first test at the Gabba is midnight GMT on the Thursday, 23rd November.
 
Now, I realise that spending 5 days in front of the computer might stretch one’s relationship! Fortunately, you can listen to TMS on any fairly recent smart phone or tablet. Simply load up our VPN app, connect to the VPN and install either the BBC iPlayer app or Tune.io, both of which should give you live access to TMS.
 
By the way, just thinking about TMS now has the theme tune lodged in my ear! For anyone interested, it’s Soul Limbo by Booker T. & the M. G.s, yes, the very same band that gave us Green Onions, go figure.
 
For the heathens that insist on visuals, live coverage of all 5 Test matches will be available through BBC Radio and BT Sport (UK), Cricket Australia (Australia), SonyLIV (India), and SuperSport (South Africa). Here are the match coverage breakdown for the different countries:
 

  • Online Radio Broadcast (U.K.) – Available on BBC Radio (FREE)
  • United Kingdom – Available on BT Sport
  • Australia – Available on Cricket Australia and 9Now(update: 9Now not available)
  • India – Available on SonyLIV (FREE for live sports)
