The five-year agreement will see cricket broadcast on TEN for the first time.
TEN Chief Executive Officer and Managing Director, Hamish McLennan, said: “We are delighted to join forces with Cricket Australia as its exclusive domestic Twenty20 cricket partner and we look forward to a long, successful partnership.
“The Twenty20 Big Bash League is a great competition, and TEN and Cricket Australia will make it a major free-to-air television event.
“We will work closely with Cricket Australia on the scheduling, marketing and promotion of the league to ensure it is the premium domestic sporting event of the Australian summer,” he said.
“The Big Bash League has a lot of potential and the shortest form of the game represents a great opportunity for viewers to engage with cricket.
“Our agreement with Cricket Australia fits perfectly with TEN’s strategy of bring big television events to a broad audience. The Twenty20 Big Bash League will give TEN more than 100 hours of exciting content across the 2013-14 summer and will be a compelling event for viewers and advertisers.”
