  • Basic package. You can watch on 2 devices at the same time for $27.50 a month.
  • Premium package. You can watch on 3 devices at the same time for $35 a month.

Whichever option you choose, you will have access to the entire Kayo library, with all the features. If you have a voucher for the service, click on "Got a voucher?" and enter it there. Otherwise, click on the plan you want to get and start setting up your account.

Step 4: Create your Kayo account

In the next screen, it's time to enter your personal information. Enter your name, mobile number, email address and choose a password you will use to access the service. Your password must contain at least eight characters, including lower-case letters, upper-case letters, numbers and special characters. Once that's done, click on "Continue".

Next, you will be prompted to enter a code that was sent to your mobile device. Do that and you will be directed to enter your payment details. You won't be billed until your 14-day free trial is over. However, if you're not enjoying the service, remember to cancel your account before the free trial is up.

That's it! Your Kayo Sports account should be up and running.

Step 5: Set up Kayo on your devices

Once you are a registered Kayo user, you will be able to watch on demand from a variety of devices. Here's how to set up the service on each one:

Step 6: Start browsing Kayo Sports

Now that you have a Kayo account, you can start watching sport live and on demand. The service offers some great features, including "SplitView", which enables you to stream multiple sporting events live on the same screen.

Moreover, Kayo Sports has a built-in "No Spoilers" setting. This comes in handy if you're running late, since it hides the scores and results you're interested in until you're ready to hit play. Finally, if you're short on time, you can use "Key Moments" to go right to the action that matters in selected matches.
