Sky has secured the New Zealand television broadcast rights for the 2015 Cricket World Cup.
The subscription deal means every game of the tournament, co-hosted by New Zealand and Australia, will be screened live.
Free-to-air coverage will also be available, although details are still to be confirmed.
Sky were awarded the rights by Star Sports, the International Cricket Council's global media rights and broadcast partner.
Sky's director of sport, Richard Last, said the news was "fantastic" for New Zealand viewers - likening it to the 2011 Rugby World Cup.
"Cricket is our summer game and we all remember the buzz during the Rugby World Cup so it's fantastic news to be able to bring all the colour and passion of the Cricket World Cup to New Zealanders in 2015," he said.
Sky will also screen live coverage of the ICC World Twenty20 in 2014 and the ICC U19 Cricket World Cup in 2014.
