Kayo Sports officially launches full release

Having successfully navigated its beta soft launch, new streaming TV service Kayo Sports has fully launched in Australia.

Sports fans can rejoice. As of 26 November 2018, the exciting new live sports service Kayo is officially released, bringing with it a new era in sports streaming.

To date, the service has only been available in soft launch beta form. On November 7, the browser and ChromeCast beta arrived. Later, on November 19, the Kayo Sports app beta landed on Apple TV, the App Store and on Google Play. Fans have been welcomed by a two-week free trial, at which point the service begins at $25 (two simultaneous streams) or $35 (three simultaneous streams) a month.

In our opinion, it's good value, too. Kayo has delivered on its "Netflix for Sports" promise, delivering a sports broadcast experience unlike anything else in the world. Kayo Sports is not owned by Foxtel, however, as a sister company under the same grander corporate umbrella, it does have access to all the broadcasting rights acquired by its sibling. That's around 50 sports.

Not only live sport, but Kayo also has its own unique offerings – including "mini" replays of big matches – and sports programming. This includes preview shows, press conferences, general entertainment, historical matches, documentaries, discussion panels and more.

What makes the experience unique is its key sports-specific features. This includes picture-in-picture, hide scores, jump to highlight moment and a split-screen option allowing you to watch two to four channels at once (depending on your screen size).

We encourage you to jump into our full review of Kayo to learn more, or to discover how it compares to other sports streaming options at the bottom of this story.

There's still more to come in the future, too. Despite Kayo Sports officially launching today, we expect more viewing options to be added in the future. We'd expect to see Kayo Sports on the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 in the future, and also as a native app on Smart TVs from the likes of Samsung and LG.

There will also be, you'd hope, some mobile and home broadband bundles emerging through its other sister company, Telstra. While nothing has been announced, it would make plenty of sense.

With Kayo Sports out of beta and officially launched, we'll now be keeping a close eye on the rest of the market - in particular Foxtel and Foxtel Now - to see how it responds to this major disruption.

    Missing from Kayo-today in Golf is the PGA Tour’s TOC in Hawaii, figured Foxtel shows this but does Kayo nit show anything from this, and European Tour?

      Hi Di,

      If it is on one of the following Foxtel channels – FoxSports1-7, ESPN1, ESPN2, BeINSports 1-3 – then it is on Kayo. Kayo has the exact same channels streaming the same content at the same time. However, at this stage, any sports not showed on those channels, are not showed on Kayo.

      Cheers

      Chris
