The FIBA 2019 World Cup will not be on free to air. The Pick and Roll understands that Fox Sports Australia holds broadcast rights to every World Cup game, Boomers or otherwise. It’s also been confirmed that not all games will be aired, due to scheduling limitations. 29 games will be broadcast in HD, including every Australia and Team USA game. Foxtel On Demand will provide full and condensed replays for every game in the tournament.
Local multi-sport streaming provider, Kayo will have access to all games. This includes live streams, full and condensed replays. Kayo offers a 14-day free trial, which could be a cost-effective option, if timed strategically.
Update: LIVEBASKETBALL.TV has an Early Bird Pass for the FIBA World Cup, but is geoblocked for Australia.
The Australian Boomers announced their official World Cup roster earlier this morning, locking in the team that will be suiting up for the coming exhibition games and also the tournament itself in China.
Australia plays Canada in the coming exhibition games at Perth, and Team USA in Melbourne before the tournament begins. All of these games will be available to watch on free to air via SBS. Canada’s squad has been depleted, with multiple NBA star withdrawals.
The Boomers are in Group H, and will tip off in the 2019 FIBA World Cup against Canada in Dongguan, China on 1 September 2019, Sunday.
Game statistics for the World Cup will be available via FIBA’s website.
