For Apple TV owners in Australia looking for a way to see archived footage of cricket matches, the wait is finally over.

Announced earlier today, Cricket.com.au has officially launched as a free content channel for Apple TV. With it, those in Australia will be able to access the channel and watch archived video footage of a wide range of cricket matches. The official announcement notes that the channel will bring “the latest videos as well as highlights from the archive.”

Cricket Australia on Apple TV will give fans free and immediate access to the latest news and features, extended highlights from every day of international cricket played in Australia this summer, as well as rare footage from the archives that showcase some of Australia’s most famous cricketing clashes… Cricket fans will also enjoy unique feature videos that go behind the scenes of Australian cricket and get closer to current stars and legends, like Shane Warne and Adam Gilchrist. Fans will also find cricket skills tutorials from the likes of George Bailey, Nathan Lyon and Ellyse Perry.

At this point in time, there doesn’t seem to be any monthly subscriptions necessary to access the content within the app, as noted by the press release. While the daily highlight videos and archived footage is most certainly free, there are subscription offers from cricket.com.au, from $5 per month to $30 per year, but it doesn’t look like that option is available for the Apple TV channel just yet.

For those in Australia, the free channel is certainly a nice boost, especially for the diehard cricket fans out there. It will be interesting to see if the content gets expanded with the subscription model, too.
