Cricket Australia to launch online-only video app in 2019-20 – The Age
The game of cricket will be a digital battleground.
Cricket Australia is launching a live-streaming app to stream live cricket matches, as well as a cricket app that will be available for mobile devices, the Australian Broadcasting Corporation reported on Monday.
The company will release the app, called CricketLive, for free to anyone who is eligible, and will also offer a premium version to subscribers who subscribe for an additional fee.
It is believed to be the first time cricket in Australia will be broadcast live online.
The new service will be offered on mobile devices such as smartphones, tablets and computers.
The launch comes ahead of the opening of the first Test match of the new World Cup against India in Adelaide on June 3.
The cricket app will be launched alongside the live stream, which is expected to be live for more than 20 minutes.
The video app will have three categories: commentary, live scorecards, and other cricket-related content.
The online-video app will also feature a number of cricket related features including match updates, stats and scores.
