How to watch Carlton Blues vs Western Bulldogs AFL live and free

Posted: 12 July 2020 10:13 am

Victorian sides Carlton and Western Bulldogs meet on the Gold Coast in round 6 of the AFL. This is how to watch.

SUMMARY: Blues vs Bulldogs is exclusive to Fox Footy. If you're an existing Foxtel customer you're all set, otherwise your best option is to watch on Kayo Sports. You can watch for free using this 14-day trial. This gets you access to all its unique features and 50 additional live sports.

Carlton vs Western Bulldogs offers the Blues a chance to get back on track and show they have made real improvement in 2020. They demonstrated their potential with consecutive wins over Geelong and Essendon. But the Blues were poor in a loss to St Kilda last week.

They take on a Western Bulldogs side that is showing some good signs as the season takes shape. The 2016 premiers have overcome North Melbourne and Sydney over the past fortnight. They will be favoured to make it three straight wins against Carlton.

When is Carlton vs Western Bulldogs?

This match closes out round 6 of the AFL draw when it gets underway at 6:45pm AEST at Gold Coast's Metricon Stadium on Sunday 12 July.

How to watch Carlton vs Western Bulldogs

Since 2012, free-to-air network Channel 7 and Foxtel have shared the rights to broadcast AFL matches in Australia. There are only limited matches on free-to-air, with some of them exclusive to Fox Footy, including Carlton vs Western Bulldogs.

That leaves Foxtel iQ, Foxtel Now and Kayo Sports as your only options nationwide to catch this all-Victorian clash. For access to every game in every round in 2020, you need Foxtel or Kayo Sports. There is also Watch AFL if you are overseas.

Who will win Carlton vs Western Bulldogs?

Just when it seems the Blues are making real progress, they take a step backwards, like in their disappointing effort against the Saints last week. To put themselves back into the finals picture, they desperately need to develop some consistency. We don't see it happening this week against a Bulldogs side that has its own eyes on retaining a spot in the top eight.
