This is pretty much the thing I've been waiting for. Kind of like the Netflix of sport. Still a wee bit expensive at $25 a month but it's cheaper than $40 which is what Foxtel+sports costs.

Interesting; it looks like one of those ripoff pirate stream sites but according to T&Cs is actually a legit Foxtel thing. Be very interested to hear how it goes; I'd pay $25/mo for cricket season to keep up with things, but if it's brand new I assume they'll have non-stop capacity issues. Have you signed up yet? Does it make Australia look any better at cricket?

$25/month seems a bit pricey. But if you can partner with someone else and each consume 1 active stream, then $12.50/m isn't too bad.

$25/month is cheaper than foxtel, which is your only other option of you want to see all of the cricket and rugby league.

It also has all of the afl if you are orientated that way

ads on foxtel are fine. only uptight ad haters cant deal. live cricket has no ads. most important things have no ads. ads are fine if the content is good.

Lols what a catch!

Foxtel has no ads during live play which is the only thing that matters

I see 25 as really cheap considering I pay 50-60 or whatever it is for 1 channel at the moment (fox league). Will definitely be trialing it in march.

https://help.kayosports.com.au/s/article/Why-do-I-see-advertising-in-Kayo
Kayo is a subscription-based service which might make you wonder why you see advertisements while watching.

While we try to limit the ads that we run, some of the broadcasters that we have partnerships with provide streams that include them. Some of the replays are recordings of the original live games so will include ads at those times as well.

Live sporting events are usually produced for airing with advertising breaks, as ad-funded broadcasts are an important source of revenue to fund the sporting competitions and codes that you love.

Kayo brings you the live broadcast that includes these ad breaks, which is what you are seeing.


So, not only will you see ads from the stream, you will get ads from Kayo it's self (related: https://help.kayosports.com.au/s/articledetail?recordId=ka07F0000002h5RQAQ ). So ads on ads. Interesting to see what it would be like in practice. Maybe ads when you switch "channels"? ads in replayed games? pop up ads? the possibilities are endless!

Also protip: if you sign up for the 14 day free trail, you can probably cancel your membership right away and still continue the trial without any ill effect. The cancellation will apply at the end of your "paid" month.

I agree paying for ads is dumb but I get their rationale - in the short term I imagine they probably can only license feeds on an as-is basis due to existing licensing arrangements. Hopefully the mere existence of services like this will start fragmenting the industry a little bit, although I doubt it will happen for a while.

It's Foxtel ... For the exact same price as the Sports Package on Foxtel.

It's NBA coverage doesn't include TNT.
It's NFL coverage on a Monday morning is the f*****g retarded Red Zone. ADHD/NFL!

7 Mate has better coverage and is free. (ps. 7mates coverage is pathetic)

Can't comment on such high brow s*** like World Axe Throwing League or US 10 Pin Bowling League (an Aussie is winning it ... and no one here cares)

US Women's College Volleyball is ok ... oO

As long as it has no ads during the live play for nrl and cricket, i don't care about the rest.

Will wait until April until they release the ps4 / samsung tv apps
