Where to stream gymnastics in Australia

Alexandra Plesa 15 February 2018 NEWS


Although a beloved sport Down Under, it can be difficult to find any gymnastics competitions on TV. With the 2018 World Cup coming up, now is the perfect time to look into streaming alternatives.

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.

And yet we rarely see broadcasts of gymnastics competitions. With a few exceptions, fans often have 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, there’s a live stream available to keep you up to date with everything relevant in the gymnastics world. Even better: you can stream content data-free.

Stream gymnastics live with OVOPlay

When it comes to budget mobile providers, OVO Mobile stands out from the crowd thanks to OVOPlay, its streaming platform. Available for free to OVO clients, the service enables you to stream sports events and listen to radio data-free. The telco partners with sporting brands like 400 Thunder Professional Drag Racing, 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, OVO is offering both live streaming and video highlights. Users will be able to live stream both the 2018 Gymnastics World Cup, which takes place between 22 and 25 February, and the 2018 Australian Gymnastics Championships, scheduled between 21 May and 4 June.
