Fox Sports Australia - All The Best Sport you need
Fox Sports is still the go-to for all of the best sports in Australia, from AFL and NRL to BBL and Supercars. The great news is there are more ways to get access to it now than ever before through multiple cable and streaming services in Australia and abroad.
Bringing together the best of live sports from across the codes and around the globe, Fox Sports has come a long way from its humble beginnings as a single channel delivering sport to Foxtel’s early subscribers. These days, Fox Sports is Australia’s primary sports broadcaster, bringing together the biggest sporting events from all around Australia and across the world. With exclusive access to some of the world’s most prestigious sporting events, Fox Sports provides the sort of wall-to-wall coverage that only a dedicated network can deliver.

What Is Fox Sports?
If you’re a Foxtel customer, Fox Sports boasts its own dedicated channels on Foxtel, plus a 24-hour sports news channel. Several of these channels are dedicated to one sport – Fox Footy, Fox League and Fox Cricket. These definitive channels offer not only live sport, with expert analysis from former professionals but also documentaries, panel shows and much more.
Alongside these favourites, Fox Sports’ additional output covers everything from Formula 1 and ATP tennis to NBA and PGA Golf. You get the luxury of two ESPN channels, three from acclaimed European broadcaster beIN, as well as the highly-regarded Racing.com, for a total of 14 channels of wall-to-wall sport.
If you’re open to cheaper alternatives, then Kayo Sports is a good option as it covers all of these sports + more sporting documentaries from your favourite sports. If you’re a Telstra customer, you can get Kayo Sports at a discounted rate with $10 off Kayo each month.
