Amazon Prime Video Now Will Stream New Zealand vs India Cricket Matches Too!

Entertainment Sports Technology Videos World

Amazon Prime Video is doing pretty well in India. With movies and web shows it is one of the biggest streaming platform in India. And it is now expanding itself in the field of cricket too. In India, if one wants to show live matches, then rights for showing live matches are required. And Amazon Prime Video did the same. It now has the right to live to stream the cricket matches. But these matches are only which India will play against New Zealand. Both men’s and women’s cricket across all formats, ODI, T20, and Tests will now be available on the platform. This right is with the platform till the end of the 2025-26 season.

Amazon came in this deal with New Zealand Cricket Board. And this is a multi-year deal. In this deal, Amazon has the rights to stream the Indian cricket team’s tour of New Zealand in early 2022. And also a second tour, that will be there in the coming years.

Gaurav Gandhi, Director, and Country General Manager, Amazon Prime Video, said in a statement, “We are thrilled to work with New Zealand Cricket on this endeavor as they have a strong, passionate and much-loved cricket team, and the cricketing rivalry between the two countries has been fantastic. We are happy to make this collaboration with New Zealand Cricket our first live sports offering in India, and are confident that our Prime members will be delighted with this initiative.”

The New Zealand cricket board came in this deal due to two reasons. The first one is to extend the global reach of the team. And the second reason is to build closer relationships around the world.

David White, Chief Executive New Zealand Cricket, shared, “India has always been important for viewership of NZC; no other country follows cricket like India, so it’s exciting to be announcing this agreement with India’s leading streamer.”

This is the latest addition in Amazon Prime Video’s growing line-up of live sports around the world, including Thursday Night Football, the Premier League, ATP Tour Events, WTA, the US Open, UEFA Champions League, Autumn Nations Cup, and the Seattle Sounders FC.
