Watch the Carabao Cup with Foxtel iQ

Foxtel iQ is the only way you can watch content in 4K in Australia, which is a stunning experience for sports fans. However, there are a few items you have to take care of before you can begin watching sport on Foxtel. All users are required to have a subscription to the base Plus package at $49/month, the Sport HD package on top of this is another $25/month, which means you'll be paying $74/month.

This is an easy upgrade for existing customers, but new Foxtel customers will have to consider installation costs and a possible waiting period for install.

Stream Carabao Cup with Foxtel Now

If you like the appeal of Foxtel iQ but were hoping for a cheaper price, then Foxtel Now might be for you. Programs are only available in HD and you're still required to have the Essentials pack but it isn't as costly at a total of $54/month. The platform also still doesn't stack up to Kayo if you just want to compare sports content and viewing features. Foxtel Now has a 10-day free trial for new customers.
