The summer of cricket just got bigger with two new Kayo original series’, The Rundown and Kayo Clubhouse – both hosted by Gogglebox stars Adam Densten and Symon Lovett – due to premiere on Kayo from December 3.

With the KFC Big Bash League kicking off on December 5 and the first Test in the Vodafone Ashes Series on December 8, both shows will offer Kayo customers new ways to keep up with all the big smashes and catches throughout the summer.

The Rundown, available on Kayo and Kayo Freebies, will preview and review all the cricket action from around Australia, with 15-minute episodes released weekly amid the action-packed summer of cricket.

The Rundown will also be delivered and streamed in collaboration with Spotify.

Kayo Clubhouse, available to stream on Kayo, Kayo Freebies and YouTube, will be a Gogglebox-style show coinciding with six BBL games exclusive to Fox Cricket, with the first episode live on December 15 for the clash between Melbourne Stars and Sydney Sixers. In a Kayo first, the YouTube partnership will see fans become part of the show, with Adam and Symon responding to fan comments in real time.

The show will offer fans an alternative way to watch some of the most explosive cricket this summer and feature special guests alongside Adam and Symon to provide their takes on the unfolding action.

Kayo’s SplitView feature means cricket fans will be able to watch the world-class Fox Cricket coverage and commentary alongside the more light-hearted and fun Kayo Clubhouse on compatible devices.

The Rundown and Kayo Clubhouse will complement the massive summer of cricket on Kayo, which will feature the star-studded Fox Cricket commentary line-up and more than 1300 hours of cricket coverage, ad-break free during live play.

Kayo director of marketing, Kim McConnie, said: “Kayo is the home of cricket this summer and the only place to catch all the action from the highly anticipated Ashes Series and Big Bash League, live and on-demand, with no ad-breaks during play.

“We are always looking for ways to enhance the Kayo viewing experience, and these two new original shows hosted by Gogglebox stars, and cricket fans, Adam and Symon, will provide Aussies more ways to watch and enjoy what’s going to be a massive few months of cricket.”

The first episode of The Rundown will be available to stream via Kayo and Spotify on December 3, while the first episode of Kayo Clubhouse will be available to stream on December 15 on Kayo and YouTube.
