Stream Kangaroos vs Kiwis on Foxtel Now
If you choose to go with Foxtel Now, you can get a 10-day free trial. Unlike its sister product Kayo, your free trial allows you to test every pack instead of just sports content.
This gives you access to the men's Rugby League World Cup, plus the women's and wheelchair editions played in conjunction.
You can watch Foxtel Now on iOS and Android devices, Mac and PC, Telstra TV, PlayStation, smart TVs (Samsung, Android, Sony, Hisense, LG) or via Chromecast. The only devices it doesn't have an app for are Apple TV and Amazon Firestick.
After you complete your free trial, the cheapest Foxtel Now subscription is $25 per month, but that doesn't give you sports. It costs an additional $29 to add sports, taking your monthly bill to $54.
However, right now the Ultimate Bundle is on sale and available for $49 per month instead of $104. That gives you access to every single channel pack, which is a good deal.

Australia vs New Zealand match preview
Australia and New Zealand are arguably the 2 best teams in the entire competition, but due to how the draw was created, it was always destined for them to meet in the semi-final.
Given the lopsidedness of the competition, neither side had been tested except for New Zealand last week.
For that reason, the start of the game is likely going to be key. Both sides will come out full of intensity that most won't have played with except those who were part of the NRL finals.
Which side responds best to this will go a long way to deciding who wins the game.
Unless there's a late change from Kangaroos coach Mal Meninga, New Zealand may be better set up to handle the fatigue with the Aussies choosing to carry one less forward on the bench.
The Kangaroos and Kiwis haven't played since 2019 due to COVID in the last few years.
There are now only 15 players remaining from when they last met.
It will be a big game for both teams' halves. Australia's Cam Munster goes up against Storm partner Jahrome Hughes who is playing his biggest game for the Kiwis to date.
Nathan Cleary will have to prove that Meninga made the correct decision in opting for him to play at halfback over Daly Cherry-Evans.
New Zealand's attack just hasn't clicked as well as the Aussies' so far.
That's not saying they can't produce an upset, but the form guide points to a Kangaroos victory in a close affair.
