How to watch the English Super League live in Australia

The English Super League is back for another season. Here's how you can watch Super League matches live or on demand.

Updated

Sonny Bill Williams.
The English Super League is the Northern Hemisphere's premier rugby league competition. Its inaugural season began in 1966 and it runs from February to October, which is even longer than the NRL.

While it's definitely considered of a lower standard than the Australian competition, this year the Super League has two of the biggest names of any rugby code, Sonny Bill Williams and Israel Folau. Also joining the competition this year is the first-ever Canadian team, the Toronto Wolfpack, which Sonny Bill will be playing for.

The focus shouldn't solely be on those two names though. St Helen's Saints are the defending champions after they took down the Salford Red Devils in the grand final. With so many big-name recruits joining the ranks, will the Saints be able to finish on top again? Maybe, but it'll be tough, so be sure to watch the season.

How to watch the English Super League in Australia

In Australia, Super League matches aren't available on free-to-air television. Normally, this would mean that your only option would be Foxtel, but that's no longer the case now that Kayo Sports is in the picture.

Live stream the Super League on Kayo Sports: Start your 14-day FREE trial now

Kayo Sports and Foxtel are showing up to four games each round. It should be pointed out, though, that games are typically held in the middle of the night or early morning for Australian viewers, so you might prefer to watch the games on-demand rather than live, which is easiest with Kayo Sports.

Stream the English Super League with Kayo Sports

Kayo Sports has access to all the Fox Sports content, plus beIN SPORTS and ESPN. This culminates to over 50 sports available to stream live or on demand. If you're a real rugby league buff, then Kayo has you covered with every live NRL game, Downer 9s, NRL All Stars, the majority of internationals and more.

What really helps to get Kayo over the line is its abundance of viewing features designed for sport, along with its HD capability. There's Interactive Stats, SplitView (so you can watch four sports at once), No Spoilers, alternate camera angles and a Key Moments timeline (jump to the best bits). And you can start streaming now for free with Kayo's 14-day free trial.

You can watch Kayo Sports on smaller devices such as your PC, Mac, iOS or Android devices. If you want to watch on the big screen, you can watch via Apple TV, Chromecast, Telstra TV, Android TV, Sony Bravia TV and Samsung TV (2017 models or later).

Now to your subscription options, of which there are two. The only real difference between the two is the number of devices that you can watch Kayo on simultaneously, which is handy if you're sharing your subscription with someone else. The Basic subscription is $25/month and allows you to stream on two devices at the same time, and the Premium subscription is $35/month and allows you to stream on three devices simultaneously.

Stream the English Super League with Foxtel Now

Foxtel Now is another alternative for streaming sports via the Internet. To get set it up, you must have the Essentials pack for $25/month and the Sport pack for an additional $29/month. So for $54/month, you can watch the Super League with Foxtel Now.

You can stream Foxtel Now from the Foxtel Now box, PCs, Macs, iOS and Android devices, Chromecast, Apple TV, PS4 and Telstra TV. Your subscription also allows you to stream via the Foxtel GO app, and there's a 10-day free trial for new customers, so you can try out the service for free before you commit.

Watch the English Super League with Foxtel IQ

If you're an existing Foxtel IQ customer, it's easy to add sports content to your package for an additional $29/month. If you're a new customer, there's a bit more work to do. Foxtel IQ boxes incur an installation fee (whether you get a technician or not) and there's sometimes a waiting period.

It's $29/month for Sport, which sounds fair, but the catch is that you must also have the Foxtel Plus pack, which is $49/month. This brings the total monthly cost to $74/month. Your subscription also gives you access to Foxtel GO so you can stream on the run.

Upcoming Super League matches

Super League competition format

Each team plays 29 games per season, with two games against each other at home and away. There's also a Magic Weekend round and another six games determined by a team's ladder position. Only the top five teams enter the finals series, which eventuates with the Super League Grand Final at Old Trafford on 11 October (AEDT).

In season 2020, the team that finishes last is relegated to the Betfred Championship, and a new team is promoted from the Championship each year in what's dubbed the Million Pound Game.
