Netball Australia Partnership Extends Viewership To New Zealand

Netball Australia’s new partnership with New Zealand-based streaming service, Spark Sport, will extend the Super Netball league’s broadcasting coverage to New Zealand viewers.

Spark Sport will hold the exclusive broadcasting rights to the league’s New Zealand coverage for the upcoming season, as well as all Australian-based fixtures featuring the Diamonds.

Fans will be able to watch the games live and on-demand at sparksport.co.na for NZD$24.99 (AUD$23.16) per month.

Spark Sport general manager, Jeff Latch, said the addition of netball to its broadcasting portfolio further expands the service’s exposure of women in sport.

“At Spark Sport we are focused on showcasing more women’s sport on our platform by expanding on our rights across international cricket, basketball, rugby union and league,” Latch said.

“With the addition of Netball Australia, our offering of women’s sports is stronger than ever,” Latch added.

Netball Australia CEO, Kelly Ryan, said the organisation is excited to broadcast the season to New Zealand fans.

“Australia and New Zealand have a longstanding netball rivalry, and we hope Kiwi viewers will enjoy watching the Suncorp Super Netball through the Spark Sport platform in 2022,” Ryan said.

“Our competition is now accessible right across the globe – with fans able to watch the world’s number one domestic netball league from any location at any time,” Ryan added.

From the start of this year’s season, Netball Australia will also use its official international streaming service ‘NetballAustralia.TV,’ to provide live coverage of matches as well as on demand content to fans outside of Australia and New Zealand.

“Our international fans are incredibly important to us and ensuring you are able to watch your favourite teams and players is crucial to the growth of our competition,” Ryan said.

Netball Australia has further extended its international broadcasting reach by forming an agreement with Sky Sports in the UK.

Sky Sports is set to air 60 live matches during this year’s Super Netball season including the series’ finals and will feature England’s netball players involved in the competition.

Domestically, Australian viewers can watch the upcoming season’s games ad-free on Foxtel and Kayo.

This year’s season is set to begin on Saturday with the Adelaide Thunderbirds and Collingwood Magpies kicking off the season.
