The broadcast rights for every A-League game are owned by Fox Sports and broadcast via Foxtel and Kayo Sports. Channel 10 has the rights to show one of the Saturday night games each round, as well as the full A-League Finals Series. This is aired through the 10 Bold channel, plus there is also an A-League stream of that match through 10 play.
Elsewhere there is a dedicated MyFootball Live App, which also provides an A-League stream of each and every game. Let's take a closer look at all these A-League streaming options.
Option 1: Stream the A-League on Kayo Sports
Our pick for the best A-League streaming experience is Kayo Sports. Launched at the end of 2018, Kayo Sports is a dedicated sports viewing experience that takes 13 of the best sports channels available in Foxtel's premium Sport Pack add-on and places them in their own app. This brings the price down to $25 per month, plus you can test it for free for the first 14 days.
We have a detailed review of Kayo Sports that will flesh out all the information for you, but the key takeaways are the excellent user interface, its accessibility (PC, Mac, iOS, Android, Apple TV, Telstra TV, Android TV and Chromecast) and the unique viewing features. The latter includes SplitView (where you can watch four channels at once), multiple camera angles for some sports, a picture-in-picture mode, a hide scores option, jump to key moments function and more.
If you want to watch content beyond sport, such as Game of Thrones or lifestyle programming, then Foxtel is your best option. The Sport Pack costs $29 per month and must be added onto the base Pop and Lifestyle pack whether you choose the traditional Foxtel IQ experience (which comes with the Foxtel Go live streaming app) or the dedicated live stream Foxtel Now service. This can push the cost to as high as $68 and $54 a month respectively.
If you already have a Foxtel subscription with the Sport Pack, you can simply use the Foxtel Go or Foxtel Now app to live stream A-League games on your preferred device. In the case of Foxtel Now, there's a 10-day free trial available too. However, be aware that none of the UI features or sports viewing features found on Kayo Sports are available through the Foxtel services.

Saturday night games, usually broadcasting at 7.30pm (AEST), are also live streamed on Ten’s streaming service, 10 play. Accessing the service is free of charge. 10 play has access to the entire A-League Finals Series, too. If you're a dedicated fan, however, this A-League streaming option is quite limited and will rarely feature your favourite team.
Option 4: Stream A-League on MyFootball Live App
As the official A-League streaming option, the MyFootball Live App has plenty of benefits. It's a portal for news, information and behind-the-scenes programming. Telstra mobile customers get access to the app for free, while non-Telstra-mobile customers can pay $99.99 for an annual Live Pass, $16.99 for a monthly Live Pass or $4.99 for a weekly Live Pass. This does give it flexibility for those just wanting to catch the last few rounds of the season at a reasonable price.
Where it falls down is in its accessibility. The app is only available on iOS and Android devices, and it doesn't offer much in the way of global leagues or programming. You do get select FFA Cup and Matildas games, but when compared to Foxtel and Kayo Sports, it's not overly impressive. Then again, if you just want A-League on your mobile, that shouldn't matter.

Important information about this website
finder.com.au is one of Australia's leading comparison websites. We compare from a wide set of major banks, insurers and product issuers.
finder.com.au has access to track details from the product issuers listed on our sites. Although we provide information on the products offered by a wide range of issuers, we don't cover every available product. You should consider whether the products featured on our site are appropriate for your needs and seek independent advice if you have any questions.
Products marked as 'Promoted' or "Advertisement" are prominently displayed either as a result of a commercial advertising arrangement or to highlight a particular product, provider or feature. Finder may receive remuneration from the Provider if you click on the related link, purchase or enquire about the product. Finder's decision to show a 'promoted' product is neither a recommendation that the product is appropriate for you nor an indication that the product is the best in its category. We encourage you to use the tools and information we provide to compare your options and find the best option for you.
The identification of a group of products, as 'Top' or 'Best' is a reflection of user preferences based on current website data. On a regular basis, analytics drive the creation of a list of popular products. Where these products are grouped, they appear in no particular order.
Where our site links to particular products or displays 'Go to site' buttons, we may receive a commission, referral fee or payment.
We try to take an open and transparent approach and provide a broad based comparison service. However, you should be aware that while we are an independently owned service, our comparison service does not include all providers or all products available in the market.
Some product issuers may provide products or offer services through multiple brands, associated companies or different labelling arrangements. This can make it difficult for consumers to compare alternatives or identify the companies behind the products. However, we aim to provide information to enable consumers to understand these issues.
Providing or obtaining an estimated insurance quote through us does not guarantee you can get the insurance. Acceptance by insurance companies is based on things like occupation, health and lifestyle. By providing you with the ability to apply for a credit card or loan we are not guaranteeing that your application will be approved. Your application for credit products is subject to the Provider's terms and conditions as well as their application and lending criteria.
