Kayo offers streams in both SD and HD. If you watch on the big screen and have a good broadband connection, you can expect up to HD 1,080p video quality.

How do I access the Kayo special features with Apple TV?

Kayo Sports comes with some exciting features, including SplitView, which enables you to stream multiple sporting events on the same screen, at the same time; and Key Moments, which lets you tune in to the best moments from an event when you're short on time.

  1. To take advantage of them, use your Apple TV remote. Here are some useful tips:
  2. Tap on the Apple TV remote touchpad to see the video controls, including the video progress timeline. Swipe left or right to change the current time within the video progress timeline. Then, click to confirm and you'll jump to that spot in the video.
  3. The Playback Speed button. Swipe down to access the playback speed options. You can change it to a higher speed (1.5x or 2x) or enjoy the event in slow motion.
  4. Jump to Live/Play from Live. If you're watching a Live event on delay, you can swipe down to access the Jump to Live button and go straight to the current Live moment of the stream. Use the Play/Pause button on your remote to pause and resume the video at any time and use the Home button to exit the video.

Key Moments timeline:

  1. Swipe right when the video is playing.
  2. Swipe down to change the playback speed.
  3. Swipe right to access Key Moments then click on the Key Moments button to navigate between Key Moments by swiping left and right.
