The 45th season of top-flight football in Australia got underway on Friday 19 November, with reigning champions Melbourne City kicking things off at home against the Brisbane Roar. 12 teams are once again competing in the nation's premier competition.

City will be a hot favourite to defend their title. A-League coach of the year Patrick Kisnorbo will again lead City, with 3-time Golden Boot winner Jamie Maclaren guiding the team upfront again. This time around, the Australian competition has a new broadcaster.

How to watch the A-League finals live

Broadcasting rights for the A-League are with ViacomCBS, owner of Channel 10 and streaming service Paramount Plus, which was launched in August 2021.

During the regular season, Channel 10 broadcast an A-League match every Saturday night at 7:30pm AEST. All free-to-air matches were simulcast on the 10 play streaming platform. Every single match of the A-League is live and on demand on Paramount Plus.

Watch the A-League finals on free-to-air TV

After both Channel 10 and 10 play showing 1 live match a week on Saturday nights during the season, you will also be able to watch the A-League finals on free-to-air as well. The A-League finals will screen across the 10 Network, with games on either the main channel or 10 Bold as well as 10 play. That might be okay for the casual A-League observer, but to watch your team every week or make sure you don't have to miss anything, you need a subscription to Paramount Plus.
