Stream Kayo FREE for 7 days
Foxtel has been known as the home of sports content in Australia for years. With more than 13 dedicated channels, many of which carry the Fox Sports name, Foxtel had become synonymous with gathering your mates and watching some sport.
Foxtel's dominance has extended to showing every single game of the NRL and AFL seasons live (except the grand finals). Its other major coup was securing the broadcast rights to all Australian cricket. This includes the BBL and every single Australian ODI and T20I. For most Aussie sports fans, this ended any competition Foxtel may have had.
Sport on Foxtel
The packages for sport on Foxtel vary. For the iQ range, you need to have the base Foxtel Plus pack for $52 a month. The Sports HD pack, which includes 4K sport, totals a hefty $77 a month.
Another option is Foxtel Now. Once more, you're forced into the base Essentials pack alongside the Sport pack, which bumps your subscription up to $54 a month. There is no longer a free trial. You also stream exclusively through your internet, so you'll need to ensure your broadband plan is up to the task.
The key takeaway though is that you can't get just a Fox Sports subscription through Foxtel. If your only entertainment need is sport, there's no Foxtel plan that gives it to you without forcing you into additional packages you have no use for.
However, there is a rather elegant solution to overcome this dilemma. To accommodate viewers who want sport, more sport and nothing but sport, it created Kayo Sports back in 2018, 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. That means like Foxtel Now, you'll need a broadband plan that can handle hours of sports streaming. In total, Kayo has over 50 sports available for your viewing pleasure. It's as close to complete coverage of the sporting world as you could reasonably expect. Additionally, Kayo exceeds the standard viewing experience from Foxtel with an array of special features.
On Kayo, there's no need to record an event you're going to miss. You can catch up on demand, or if you want to start watching an event that's already begun, you can either start from the beginning or jump in live. If you're short on time, there's 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, an exciting feature is SplitView where you can watch up to 4 different sports or shows at once. Some sports also have interactive stats, alternate camera angles and RaceView.
You can subscribe to Kayo from $25 a month. This allows you to view only 1 screen at a time. At $30 a month, you can access 2 streams at once. For $35 a month, you can have up to 3 simultaneous streams.A 7-day free trial is available for new customers.
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.
If you're a sports fanatic who hasn't caught onto Kayo yet, you're missing out. Its accessibility, comprehensiveness and affordability are almost unparalleled. While Foxtel is a great option for those with a wide variety of entertainment interests, if House of the Dragon or The Last of Us doesn't appeal to you, Kayo is the way to go.
