It may not be the Ashes, but England vs Australia is always a huge event on the cricket calendar. They do battle this summer over the course of five one day internationals and a single, explosive Twenty20 match. And we can tell you how to live stream every ball, no matter where in the world you are – and without having to pay a thing.
OK, so technically the fifth and final ODI is a dead rubber after England's frankly ridiculous world-record breaking win in the third match took the series. But this is still England vs Australia, and there are bound to be even more sixes flying before the summer is out. Pretty compelling, especially as you can watch for free!
Despite England's fine showing in the Australia ODI series, it's been a bit of a rocky 2018 in the England cricket camp. First there was that heavy Ashes loss and a thrashing in New Zealand. Followed by an up-and-down 1-1 Pakistan test series and then a shock defeat to the other old enemy – Scotland. And it's not as if Australia haven't had their own issues to deal with. Namely the suspension of two of their best players – Steve Smith and David Warner – after the extraordinary ball tampering scandal that rocked the Ashes.
All being well, we should see the epic rivalry at its finest over the one day matches between England and Australia this summer. You can watch all of the cricket action wherever you are in the world with a live stream – and you won't even have to pay for certain streaming services. Below we'll talk you through how you can do that on your TV or via a live stream to your favourite devices from wherever you are.

How to watch England vs Australia: UK live stream
Unlike in Australia (and unless you use a VPN service to get the free Australian feed – see below) those in the UK have to pay to watch the Australia matches as they will be on Sky Sports. If you subscribe to Sky Sports, you'll be able to watch the match live on your TV or you can live stream it to your phone or tablet using the Sky Go app.
If you're not already a subscriber there is a way to watch without having to pay lots in a contract with Sky. You can get all the Sky Sports channels with a week long NOW TV pass for £12.99. If that's too much for you, there's always the one-hour highlights that are on each Channel 5 instead, but that way you won't be able to watch it live. And you have to wait until around midnight for those highlights.
And if you were hoping to tune in to the world famous Test Match Special radio broadcast on the BBC's Radio 5 Live Sports Extra but can't because your out of the UK, then cast your eyes a few paragraphs up to see how to use a VPN to get the UK feed.
Or there's always the FREE Australian feed…
How to watch Australia vs England down under for FREE
Great news for Australian cricket fans down under – especially if you also have insomnia. This is the last cricket that Channel 9 will be showing, having lost the rights to Foxtel and Channel 7 after this. That means you can watch for free on your TV or by heading to the Channel 9 website. All you have to do is register some details (name, postcode, date of birth, etc) and you can watch it all live.
If you're outside Australia and try to watch, you'll find that your feed will be blocked. That's really common when you try to watch something outside the territory. But that's where our VPN solution comes in, as you can then set your IP address to within Australia and continue watching as if you were back in Oz.
