Ah, the magic of the Australian summer. Great weather, barbeques and plenty of sport doing the rounds, for the ultimate banter between mates.
Between gruelling test match cricket, the beginning of the tennis Grand Slam circuit and the pick of football, NBA and NFL, what’s your poison?
Find out where you fit in:
The Cricket Tragic
To you, it just isn’t a real Australian summer without cricket, and you can’t bear to miss a moment.
You’ve got every match you can get your hands on playing in the background at work, and may have been warned more than once by HR to stop yelling ‘Howzat?’ in your open plan office.
You impress your friends with encyclopaedic knowledge of Australian batsmen, fast bowlers and spinners, and the hallowed Boxing Day Test is the real holiday celebration for you.
Feed your obsession with a 24/7 cricket channel over summer, showcasing exclusive extended highlights, analysis and more, with Optus Sport (subscription required)*.

The Tennis Nut
The Australian Open kicks off the world tennis journey with a bang, with the greatest players on the planet vying for the top seed, and you love every minute of it.
The double-fault drama, the triumphant war cries from legends like Serena Williams, Andy Murray and Novak Djokovic, the sore neck from keeping your eye on the ball for hours at a stretch. You’ve shed tears in success and defeat with your favourites, and family are concerned that you speak of them like you know them personally.
This summer, get more courts and more choice: the 7TENNIS app is coming to Yes TV by Fetch, and the action starts January 1.
The Football Freak
The most-watched football league in the world, the English Premier League, is all systems go during our summertime. You may be a footy freak if you sacrifice sleep, sanity and social responsibility to watch your team conquer the table.
Add to that all the exploits from Bundesliga, La Liga, Ligue 1 and more, and it’s a non-stop international football frenzy most nights/early mornings of the week.
Watch live and on-demand Premier League matches with Optus Sport (subscription required)*- Channel 113 on Yes TV by Fetch.

The US Baller
Between NBA, NFL and the up-and-coming giants of American sport in all the college leagues, the most explosive, big-stage sports entertainment is courtesy of the United States.
If you have more NBA jerseys in your wardrobe than dress shirts, and declared a period of mourning in your home following the retirements of Kobe Bryant and Peyton Manning, then you may be a Baller. Bonus points if you spend every waking second analysing stats for your fantasy leagues.
Catch the latest US sport live, on ESPN, part of the Entertainment Pack on Yes TV by Fetch.
