Main Event has long been the home of pay-per-view events in Australia. But just as Kayo Sports has proven a game-changer in sports streaming in this country, the platform now also gives you another option for accessing those huge PPV events.
Starting in August 2020 with Tim Tszyu's defeat of former boxing world champion Jeff Horn, a number of major events on Main Event can now be accessed through Kayo Sports.
Since that fight night, a series of epic combat fixtures involving more of title hopeful Tszyu, plus Conor McGregor, Mike Tyson, Paul Gallen and others have been accessible this way.
It looks like almost all Australian Main Event boxing PPVs, along with UFC and select global PPV events, will be screened on Kayo Sports. Read on for all the details you need.
First of all, anyone wanting to subscribe to these events only needs to know one address – mainevent.kayosports.com.au. That is the only way to access these fight nights on Main Event via Kayo Sports.
It's key to note that new, returning or existing Kayo customers must all sign up the same way.
You will then have access to the entire cards once they get underway. But for a limited time, it also gets you much more than that. From the time you sign up, you have access to everything else Kayo has to offer, usually for around 4-7 days. There are more than 50 sports on Kayo plus a bucketload of timeless content all on the one platform for you to experience.
For existing Kayo customers it's worth noting if you purchase an event via Main Event you'll only be able to have a single stream. It does not matter whether you're running a Basic or Premium subscription. So if you share your Kayo account with friends, make sure they don't jump in or you'll receive an error message.
There is a flat, one-off charge for these events, which has been $59.95 previously for Australian boxing PPVs or $54.95 for UFC events. The first bout between Jake Paul and Tyron Woodley cost a reduced $29.95, so it varies. There are no additional admin fees. It's also worth noting you will be charged as soon as you sign up, not when the event starts.
Yes. Anyone that wants to watch a PPV event will need to pay the extra fee, regardless of whether you already subscribe to Kayo Sports.
Existing Kayo subscribers can watch these big nights of fights via their usual devices. A wide range of devices are compatible with Kayo, including iOS and Android, Mac and PCs, PS4, PS5, Android TV, Apple TV, Telstra TV, Chromecast and more.
New customers will need to download the Kayo Sports app to get started. You can see how to get started with Kayo here.
As mentioned at the top, Kayo has been getting access to virtually all Australian boxing PPVs in recent times. That isn't the full suite Main Event has on offer and there have been some limitations, including international boxing. Many are also hosted on streaming platforms like DAZN and FITE.TV.
But that has been gradually shifting too. Paul vs Woodley was on Kayo and some major upcoming events will also be available via the leading platform in Australian sports. That included UFC 266 involving Australia's Alex Volkanovski plus the third instalment of Tyson Fury vs Deontay Wilder.
Some WWE PPVs will also soon be accessible via Kayo. Until now, consumers have had WWE Network available which costs less per month than it does to purchase a single PPV like Wrestlemania on Main Event.
