Step 3: Choose the right Kayo subscription

Next, Kayo will prompt you to choose a subscription plan. There are two options available:

  • Basic subscription. You can watch on 2 devices at the same time for $25/month.
  • Premium subscription. You can watch on 3 devices at the same time for $35/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 stream sport live or watch on demand from a variety of devices. Here's how to set up the service on each one:

Desktop computer or laptop

Streaming sport via Kayo on your computer is the most user-friendly option available. Simply start your browser, access the Kayo website and sign in using the email address and password you set during registration.

If you have a Mac, you can stream Kayo via Chrome, Firefox and Safari browsers. For Windows 10, you can use Chrome, Firefox and Microsoft Edge.

Smartphone or tablet

To get Kayo Sports on your mobile device, access Google Play or the App Store, select the Kayo app and install it. Then, sign in using your credentials. As for operating systems, you will need iOS 11+ or Android 6+ to be able to run Kayo.

Apple TV

To get Kayo Sports on your Apple TV, launch the App Store from your TV's home screen to download the app. You will need an Apple TV 4th generation or higher. Then, access the app and sign in using your login details.

Telstra TV

To get Kayo Sports on your Telstra TV, head to the Telstra TV app store and download the Kayo Sports app. Sign in using your login details and start browsing.

Chromecast

Kayo Sports is compatible with Chromecast Ultra or higher. Make sure your Chromecast is properly set up and you have the Google Home app installed on your mobile device. Then, access the Kayo app via your smartphone or tablet and hit the "Cast" button to be able to watch on the big screen.

Or, you can cast directly from your laptop, but only via the Chrome browser. The procedure is the same, just hit the "Cast" icon and you will be able to watch via your TV.

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.
