Foxtel has been known as the home of sports content in Australia for years. With more than 13 dedicated channels, many of which are branded Fox Sports, it gave the Foxtel brand a strong identity.
In recent years it has expanded to show every single game of the NRL and AFL seasons. Its other major coup was securing the exclusive broadcast rights to most of the cricket. This includes the BBL and every single Australian ODI and T20I.
Sport on Foxtel
The packages for sport on Foxtel vary. For the iQ range it's mandatory to have the base Foxtel Plus pack for $49/month. The Sports HD pack is a further $25/month, which was recently changed to include 4K sport, but that's a hefty $74 monthly bill.
Foxtel Now is another option for your sports fix. This time the Sport pack costs $29/month. Once more you're forced into the base Essentials pack for $25/month, which drags your subscription up to $54/month. You also stream exclusively through your Internet so make sure your broadband plan is sufficient.
The key takeaway though is that you can't get just a Fox Sports subscription through Foxtel.
However there is a solution to overcoming this dilemma. Foxtel has clearly realised how big a market there is for people who just want to watch sport. That's why back in late 2018, it created Kayo Sports a dedicated sports streaming service.
Get Fox Sports content through Kayo Sports
Kayo shows everything that's on offer through Fox Sports and more in HD quality via the Internet. In total Kayo has over 50 sports available to stream. In addition to your standard viewing that you get via Foxtel, Kayo exceeds it with its special features.
Get Fox Sports on Kayo: Start your 14-day FREE trial now
There's no longer the need to record an event you're going to miss. You can opt to begin watching live or from the start if you miss the beginning of an event. Then there's also Kayo Minis, which are special condensed versions of games. The Key Moments timeline can also be used to jump to the best bits.
For watching live a key feature is SplitView, where you can watch up to four different sports or shows at once. Some sports also have Interactive Stats, alternate camera angles and RaceView.
Now that you're familiar with what's on Kayo Sports and what the platform can do let's look at the price. You can subscribe to Kayo from either $25 or $35 per month. The only difference is the dearer selection will let you run three simultaneous streams instead of two. New customers are also able to start watching with a 14-day free trial.
Kayo Sports is available to watch on a heap of devices. You can stream via iOS and Android devices, PCs, Macs, Apple TV, PS4, PS5, Telstra TV, Android TV, Chromecast and select smart TVs.
