Can you watch Lomachenko vs Campbell on Foxtel IQ or Foxtel Now?
Usually, the broadcast of ESPN content on Foxtel and Kayo Sports is the same. However, as Foxtel only has the two ESPN sport channels, it is somewhat restricted. If the two ESPN channels are already showing other content – in this case, the US Open tennis – then Foxtel can't show anything else. Kayo Sports differs in that it is not bound by channels, but instead showcases sports as individual hubs of content. Kayo can show the tennis, the boxing and other ESPN content – like NBA, baseball, X Games and more – at the same time as it's all on demand.
