I cant believe there is a two page spread in the Sunday Times saying Channel 7 is showing the cricket 'live and free in HD' on a day when they clearly aren't. Its UNAUSTRALIAN. Liars, fake news, call it what you like. Its bad enough not putting the cricket on free to air, like it has been for nearly 50 years, but this false advertising just shows how stupid you think we are. Not Happy.

    Thanks Channel 7, no free to air cricket. Not sure why you paid so much for the broadcast rights...we certainly are not watching Channel 7 at the moment, and I refused to be forced to sign up to Foxtel to watch it either.
    TV is off and I am listening to the ABC Grandstand broadcast.
    Well done!!!

    Well thanks very much for selling out your viewing public, NO CRICKET ON AUSTRALIA DAY, you low dogs!!! I WILL NOT WATCH ANYTHING ON 7 AGAIN, FACT, your exactly the same as our politicians, selling Australia to the highest bidder, YOU DO NOT GIVE A [censored] ABOUT AUSTRALIA AND ITS CULTURE, i will not be held to ransom to pay for fox, and since fox has got the rights for 6 long years, CA will lose big time, THANKS CHANNEL 7 FOR [censored]ING THE AUSTRALIAN PUBLIC OVER

    Channel Seven home of Cricket what a joke no ODIs on against South Africa. Sold to the highest bidder again not everyone can afford Foxtel. Really it is false advertising Seven Home of Cricket Nathan Lyon every ball every match live he forget to add if you have Foxtel. So over Channel Seven

    @Jacharri Totally right 7 has stuffed cricket in Australia I agree with what you have said Jacharri and I would like to add I was watching a live broadcast of the test today and the ball that got Steve Smith out was mist because there were showing pictures of some fieldsmen, not only did they stuff the cricket they can't even cover what they have properly

    Thanks for destroying our family’s, and many others, summer tradition.
    Part of Australian culture gone.
    Good job you idiots.
    And Cricket Australias spiral down continues.
    How can we support what we cant see, watch and enjoy ?

    Well done Channel 7, your coverage of cricket completely sucks, where's the ODI's we were promised, oh that's right, we have to have foxtel to see them. What about the WBBL, don't see much of that either do we, You are liars and are trying to force us all onto pay TV. As far as I'm concerned, long live SBS and ABC and give the cricket back to the network that had it before you. Look forward to the day Channel 7 goes broke and cricket truly becomes free to air again. By the way, Just a heads up, whoever your sound engineers are for the cricket that we do get to see, send them back to school, too much background noise, can't hear the commentators or the interviews for the screaming crowds and idiots with drums. Someone tell them that viewers would prefer to hear the commentators above the noise which they can't even get that right as it surges up and down. Not just my thoughts either as they are shared by many members of my community - Channel 7, you've blown it, hope it comes back and bites you on the backside!

    Absolutely disgusted and angry that Channel 7's cricket broadcast is so pathetic. Promising a great coverage of all matches, and then showing selected big bash matches and NO one day matches. Channel 10 showed ALL big bash matches - a great coverage. You have ripped the public off by feathering your own nest, along with Foxtel, and not giving a damn about the loyal viewers who have supported you for years. You should be ashamed of the lacklustre product you have foisted on the Australian public.

    Channel 7 has ruined my summers. Last year I watched all the Aistraluan tests, all the ODI’s courtesy of Channel 9 and all the mens BBL courtesy of Channel 10. I refuse to watch a channel that puts MKR (entertainment for [censored]s) before BBL. Thank goodness for the ABC.

    Hi, call me old fashioned in regard to the lovely lady Mitchell commentating on Channel 7’s cricket commentary, but as far as I’m concerned she adds absolutely nothing to the commentary. In fact she seems to be just stating the obvious most of the time or indeed repeating her fellow commentators.
    Congratulations on winning the cricket deal, but Channel 7 has long learning curve over Channel 9’s experience ...you could well do with the inclusion of Mark Nicholas to add that professional approach.
    Thanks for listening
