Kayo Sports has access to all of the FOX SPORTS channels (in addition to two ESPN channles and three beIN Sports channels). As a result, the streaming service offers extensive coverage of the AFL season. Subscribers can stream every match of the Toyota AFL Premiership live, with replays also available. The same goes for the Finals Series. The only exception is the Grand Final, which is shown exclusively on free-to-air. However, a replay of the big match will be available to Kayo users.
The Kayo app delivers live HD streams and works with a wide range of devices, including Mac, PC, iOS, Android, Chromecast, Apple TV, Android TV and Telstra TV. There are two price points: $25 and $35 per month for 2 and 3 simultaneous streams respectively. Regardless of which option you choose, there’s a 14-day free trial for new customers.
Other than its significantly cheaper price, what separates Kayo Sports from everything else in this list are its stunning sports specific viewing features. This includes a picture-in-picture mode, SplitView (allowing four sports to be watched at once), hide scores, jump to Key Moments, match centre and more. New features are constantly being added, too, such as RaceView for motorsports, with three cameras to select from. You can see some of these features in action on the video below, and also read about them in our comprehensive review.
