Watching gymnastics can be incredibly exciting. Think about the gorgeous leotards, the flawless executions and the spectacular floor exercises. And the sport is becoming more popular, too. As a matter of fact, 2017 proved to be a record-breaking year for Gymnastics Australia. For the first time in the sport’s history, the organisation has recorded over 200,000 registered athlete members. It seems that more and more athletes are drawn to the sport of balance, speed, flexibility, strength, control and finesse.
Live stream Gymnastics on Kayo: start your 14-day FREE trial now
And yet, until recently, we rarely got to see broadcasts of gymnastics competitions. With a few exceptions, fans often had to wait until a big event like the Olympics to see gymnastics live on TV. While the sport may not be as prominent as rugby, soccer or cricket, loyal followers are still keen to tune in for big events like the Australian Gymnastics Championships or the Gymnastics World Cup. Luckily, all this changed in 2018, thanks to a new TV broadcasting deal. Check out all the streaming options available to gymnastics fans below.
Option 1: Live streaming gymnastics in HD with Kayo
Kayo Sports offers extensive coverage of gymnastics. Fans can tune in year-round, as live broadcasts include both Australian Championships as well as international competitions – the Apparatus World Cups, Aerobics World Championships, and World Gymnaestrada, among others. You can tune in live or enjoy replays on your own schedule.
The Kayo Sports app works with a variety of devices, including Macs/PCs, smartphones and laptops, Chromecast, and Telstra TV. You have two subscription options - $25/month to stream content on two simultaneous screens and $35/month for three. There’s also a Kayo Sports 14-day free trial available to new customers.
Option 2: Live streaming gymnastics in HD with Foxtel
Gymnastics Australia struck a three-year TV deal with Fox Sports earlier in 2018, which ensures that Fox Sports will broadcast the International Gymnastics Federations’ (FIG) Individual Apparatus World Cup Series and World Championships across the six competitive Gymsports, among other exciting competitions.
To tune in, gymnastics fans need a Foxtel subscription with the Sport Package $29/month. Once that’s done, you will be able to stream content from the channels in your packages on your laptop or mobile devices with the Foxtel GO app. The app is free with your Foxtel subscription. Simply download it from the App Store or Google Play and enter your Foxtel ID. To watch on your laptop, check out the Foxtel website.
Alternatively, you can also stream gymnastics with Foxtel Now. To access Fox Sports, you will need the Sport Pack, priced at $29/month. You are required to get the Entry Pack as well, which offers a selection of Pop and Lifestyle channels. This one is $25/month, bringing your total monthly cost to $54.
Foxtel Now is available on various devices, including PCs/Macs, smartphones/tablets, Chromecast/Airplay, PS4, Telstra TV, and the Foxtel Now Box. If you’re a new customer, you can test-drive the platform free for 14 days.
Option 3: Streaming gymnastics on OVOPLay
When it comes to budget mobile providers, OVO Mobile stands out from the crowd thanks to OVOPlay, its streaming platform. Available for free, the service enables you to stream sports events and listen to radio. The telco partners with sporting brands like 400 Thunder Professional Drag Racing, Badminton Australia, Water Polo Australia and, of course, Gymnastics Australia. Moreover, you can also use the platform to live stream Hit and Triple M radio stations from across Australia.
As far as gymnastics is concerned, OVOPlay offers live streams from gymnastics competitions within Australia and overseas, as well as replays of national competitions and events and behind the scenes exclusives with OVO's gymnastics Fan Ambassadors. Everyone can download and enjoy the app, but OVO clients get to stream content data-free.
