    Pay TV here shows English home series, as well as South Africa and New Zealand. Free-to-air TV only carries Australian home series, and the World Cup.

    Sky is a subsciption based channel it is digital. You have to pay more on top of 40 a month to watch india at home. I shelled out for the ind v aus series though.

    Actually, Pay TV has taken over majority of World Cup games here, too. I remember sitting back and watching them day in, day out. 9 only showed 1 match a night, really. The "big" match... I even think they passed on some of the games such as Australia Vs. Namibia to show the test playing nations.

    Also should mention, that in Australia, the state which the game is held in, gets only a couple of hours of coverage. Unless it's a sell out.

    Rarely cricket matches get a sell out at the MCG, unless it the 1st boxing day match.

    Nearly all one day matches at the MCG where australia play are sold out...

    I live on the border of NSW and Victoria so whether its a sell out or not we get total coverage of Sydney matches and Melbourne matches
