We all know somebody who can't get enough sport, whether they're the more casual viewer who watches showcase fixtures or the full-fledged fan who'll get up at 2am for an overseas game. You're bound to know of someone that fits this description.
What's the best Christmas gift for sports lovers?
It used to be fairly difficult to find all of your sport in one place. You'd be left to scroll through the TV guides to find if the game was on free-to-air or pay TV. Thankfully with the abundance of streaming services available that's no longer the case.
Now you can get access to 24/7 coverage of live sport, documentaries, news, talk shows and historic games all on one platform. That platform is Kayo Sports, which you can gift to that sports tragic you know for Christmas.
What is Kayo Sports?
Kayo Sports is Australia's leading streaming service specifically for sport. There are over 50 sports available from 14 different sports channels. This includes every NRL, AFL, cricket and A-League fixture, as well V8 Supercars, F1 and MotoGP events.
Also included are ESPN games from the big American leagues including NBA, NFL, NHL and MLB. MMA fans can get their fix with all the UFC Fight Night events available, plus the undercards for the big PPVs.
As Kayo is a streaming service it's able to show more events than Fox Sports, which is limited by the amount of channels it runs. Kayo is also quite innovative in changing how sport is typically consumed.
You can watch four different shows or sports at once with SplitView, there's live Interactive Stats providing deeper insight, No Spoilers, Kayo Minis and a Key Moments timeline in case you're trying to catch up.
There's a range of devices you can watch from including Mac, PC, iOS and Android, Apple TV, Android TV, Telstra TV, Chromecast and AirPlay.
Kayo Sports is the best value for money when it comes to sport. Other than the great mix of sports it's priced far cheaper compared to other services at $25/month which also gives you two simultaneous streams.
How to give Kayo Sports as a present?
The most simple way to do it is just to head straight over to the Kayo Sports website and make an account for the gift recipient. All you'll need is their email address.
Enter all the details and sign up for the account, which comes with a 14-day free trial. You will still have to enter a credit card, but it won't be charged until the end of the free trial period. This way you can decide how long you'll provide access to Kayo for.
On Christmas or Boxing Day grab the phone or tablet of who you're supplying an account for and download the Kayo Sports app. Log in for them and save the information. At this point now that they're into the platform help load out the rest of their devices. Help them get the app installed on a device that helps them to watch on TV.
Maybe you had a quick trial of the app yourself so you can explain how it works. If not, don't fear because it's simple to use. Check out our video that's a live demonstration.
Alternatively if you don't want to make the account for them you can buy a Kayo Sports gift card. This way your own personal details won't be stuck on another account.
What if they already have a Kayo Sports subscription?
Don't simply think "Nah they've already got that". Kayo Sports eGift Cards are available in the amount of $25, $50 and $100, which is great as you'll be saving them some money. Gift cards are available from Australia Post, Woolworths, selected Coles, Big W, Kmart or Australia Post.
It's easy for subscribers to redeem their voucher. It's easiest to complete this step from a computer. Log in to Kayo, then select "My Account". Then you should see an option to "Redeem Gift Card". Enter your unique 30-digit code then press "Redeem". If successful, you'll have a confirmation message.
