Many telecommunications companies differentiate their offerings with free entertainment offerings and OVO is no different in this regard. Through its OVOPlay platform, it provides a wide range of free sports and entertainment streaming services not only to its customers, but to all Australians across the country.
In addition to an impressive catalogue of free sports and entertainment coverage, OVOPlay houses a select few premium streaming channels that require you to pay a subscription fee. This fee differs from channel to channel depending on the sport involved.
Below you'll find a round-up of the sports and entertainment offerings available on OVOPlay.
OVO's coverage of esports in Australia comes via the Australian Esports League, with a five-year deal recently signed that gives OVO exclusive access to all of the AEL's online esports contests. Games covered include:
Rainbow Six Siege
In July 2018, OVO added rugby to the growing list of sports included in its OVOPlay catalogue. Partnering with the Brumbies, OVO initially broadcast every Brumbies Match of the Week from the 2018 ACT Club Rugby John I Dent Cup along with highlights and behind-the-scenes interviews. On the premium side, OVO offers coverage of the Rugby World Schools Festival.
OVO made its splash into the Australian market with rights to the V8 Supercars and while it no longer streams those events, it has kept its petrolhead branding strong with coverage of a wide variety of Australian and international sporting events. Subscribe to OVO and you'll gain access to subscription- and data-free streaming of:
Virgin Australia Supercars
If you're prepared to pay extra, you can also get access to the 400 Thunder Drag Racing Series.
If you're a fan of the Australian 18-footers sailing competition, OVO is the place for you with competitions and catch-up content available to stream. Coverage of Australian 18 Footers events includes the JJ Giltinan trophy and the SuperFoiler Grand Prix.
OVO's exclusive deal with Gymnastics Australia sees it show a range of gymnastics competition events and content including the Queensland Club Championships, the Australian Gymnastics Championships and the Trampoline World Champs.
OVO's a sponsor of the water polo in Australia and as a result it has naming rights to the OVO Australian Waterpolo League. Naturally, that means that it also streams a variety of water polo content, including Australian and FINA championship matches, interviews and news.
Coverage of the Badminton World Federation is available as a premium channel through OVOPlay. Along with BWF competitions, you'll be able to watch the Singapore Open, the Malaysia Open, the Indonesia Masters and more.
Another premium service, OVOPlay's wrestling coverage encompasses a variety of professional Australian leagues including Newcastle Pro Wrestling along with a schedule of Black Label and Green Label events.
OVOPlay provides coverage of the Chinese Super League to users who sign up for a premium subscription. Coverage is comprehensive, with live streams and on-demand replays of the entire league in addition to post-round highlights.

Important information about this website
finder.com.au is one of Australia's leading comparison websites. We compare from a wide set of major banks, insurers and product issuers.
finder.com.au has access to track details from the product issuers listed on our sites. Although we provide information on the products offered by a wide range of issuers, we don't cover every available product. You should consider whether the products featured on our site are appropriate for your needs and seek independent advice if you have any questions.
Products marked as 'Promoted' or "Advertisement" are prominently displayed either as a result of a commercial advertising arrangement or to highlight a particular product, provider or feature. Finder may receive remuneration from the Provider if you click on the related link, purchase or enquire about the product. Finder's decision to show a 'promoted' product is neither a recommendation that the product is appropriate for you nor an indication that the product is the best in its category. We encourage you to use the tools and information we provide to compare your options and find the best option for you.
The identification of a group of products, as 'Top' or 'Best' is a reflection of user preferences based on current website data. On a regular basis, analytics drive the creation of a list of popular products. Where these products are grouped, they appear in no particular order.
Where our site links to particular products or displays 'Go to site' buttons, we may receive a commission, referral fee or payment.
We try to take an open and transparent approach and provide a broad based comparison service. However, you should be aware that while we are an independently owned service, our comparison service does not include all providers or all products available in the market.
Some product issuers may provide products or offer services through multiple brands, associated companies or different labelling arrangements. This can make it difficult for consumers to compare alternatives or identify the companies behind the products. However, we aim to provide information to enable consumers to understand these issues.
Providing or obtaining an estimated insurance quote through us does not guarantee you can get the insurance. Acceptance by insurance companies is based on things like occupation, health and lifestyle. By providing you with the ability to apply for a credit card or loan we are not guaranteeing that your application will be approved. Your application for credit products is subject to the Provider's terms and conditions as well as their application and lending criteria.
