Foxtel Now Sports: The 10 biggest sports you can live stream with Foxtel

Foxtel Now enables fans to watch over 40 different sports from all over the world live. All you need is a broadband connection.

Competition on the streaming market is fierce in Australia, so finding a way to stand out is a must. Thankfully, when it comes to raising the bar, platforms take things seriously. From delivering fresh and quality content to offering a seamless streaming experience, everyone from Amazon to Stan is bringing their A game. Yet, if you’re a sports fan your options are limited, to say the least. That’s where Foxtel Now comes in.

Besides offering on-demand TV shows and movies like most streaming services currently available, Foxtel Now allows users to watch Foxtel channels live. Depending on your chosen channel pack, you can tune in to see your favourite shows right when they air –basically just like a cable subscription. Apart from renters, who will definitely find the option appealing, this is especially great for sports enthusiasts, since Foxtel Now offers access to all of its sports channels with the Sports Pack. You can stream exciting competitions live on your preferred device in a manner of minutes, all via the Internet.

The only catch? Sports is priced at $29/month, but it’s a Premium Pack. Users can only subscribe to it if they add a Starter Pack to their subscription as well. That’s not the end of the world, though, since Starter Packs are priced from only $10. That means you’ll pay at least $39/month to be able to watch sports. Still a bargain, considering that you can watch over 40 competitions from all over the world, some exclusive to Foxtel. To give you a general idea, here’s some of the best sports content available to stream with Foxtel Now.

1. National Rugby League

Foxtel Now broadcasts every game of every NRL Telstra Premiership round live, with zero ads during play. Not only that, but fans get access to a dedicated 24/7 Rugby League channel. They can tune in whenever they want to see some exciting behind-the-scenes info, news, interviews, special programming and more.

The 6pm Friday night match, Super Saturday games, and 2pm Sunday game are all exclusive to Fox Sports, so a Foxtel Now subscription is an affordable way for fans to make sure they won’t miss a minute of the action.

2. Australian Football League

3. Formula 1

Foxtel Now allows you to kick back and experience one of the most intense events in motorsports – the FIA Formula One World Championship. Fans can watch every race live, with no annoying ads to interrupt the most adrenaline-pumping moments.

Furthermore, Fox Sports is the only place to watch the championship live, since it’s now exclusive to Foxtel. If you don’t want to miss out on the fun, a subscription guarantees you’ll be able to stream every race on your preferred device, even when out and about.

4. National Basketball Association

Eager for some intense basketball action? Foxtel Now offers subscribers plenty of US sports to enjoy, including a minimum of five NBA games, lives every week on ESPN. Plus, all games from the finals are shown live, so you can keep up with your favourite teams with ease.

Not only that, but you can also add three official English Football Club channels to your subscription – from Chelsea FC, Liverpool FC and Manchester United. The channels deliver documentaries, behind-the-scenes interviews with coaches and players, as well as expert analysis of each game. If you can’t travel to England to get a front-row seat for live games, this is the next best option.

      Hi Wendy,

      Thanks for your question.

      Unfortunately, Netflix don’t stream any live sports but focuses more on TV shows and movies. You may want to check out Foxtel Play as they stream just about everything Foxtel does.

      Cheers,
      Anndy
