What’s On Fox Sports?

The range of sports covered by Fox Sports takes in the biggest events from around the planet. It gives you live coverage of the secondary tournaments and events in between the flagship ones, making it invaluable to fans of any code. Across the channels, the sporting codes and championships covered in the Fox Sports TV guide include:

How do I watch Fox Sports?

You can access all 16 Fox Sports channels via Foxtel cable or satellite. If you’ve got Foxtel already, the Sports channel pack is available to you. Otherwise, sign up for a new service and include sports with your choice of other channel selections. Every single one of those channels is offered in high definition if you opt into the $10/month Foxtel HD pack.

The channels are also streamed through the freshly-revamped Foxtel Play service, with the sports package costing the same $29/month on top of the base fee (which for Foxtel Play is as little as $10/month). If you watch Foxtel Play on a Telstra TV box, all the sports channels are available to stream to your big-screen TV in high definition at no extra charge.

Fox Sports is also available to be streamed live through Foxtel Go, with the channels freely available to subscribers to either standard Foxtel or Foxtel Play at no additional cost. You can catch your favourite sports live wherever you are on your smartphone or tablet.

How much does Fox Sport cost?

You can have Fox Sports as a part of the $29/month Premium Sport package on Foxtel. This gives access to all 16 channels of sporting action. That puts the cost of base Foxtel plus sports at $55/month – though there are often generous offers to get connected with Fox Sports for far less. The current Foxtel From Telstra offer is an absolute bargain at $35/month.
