Best Guide to Streaming with Fox Sports


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 across multiple channels. 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 Makes Fox Sports Unique?

Fox Sports now boasts seven of its own dedicated channels, plus a 24-hour sports news channel. Some of these channels are completely dedicated to the big sports that define Australia – Fox Footy, Fox League and Fox Cricket. The definitive destinations for fans of those codes, they offer comprehensive coverage of their respective sports, from live games to custom-produced documentaries, panel shows and more.

Alongside them, Fox Sports’ other channels cover everything from A-League to ATP tennis, Formula One to field hockey and Superbikes to surfing. Adding to this 24-hour coverage are international channels – two from ESPN, three from acclaimed European producer beIN, and the highly-regarded Eurosport, for a total of 13 channels of wall-to-wall sports.

How Do I Watch Fox Sports?

Foxtel Residential

All of Fox Sports’ channels can be accessed on Foxtel via both satellite and cable. If you’ve got Foxtel already, all you need to do is add the Sports HD channel pack to your subscription and you’re all set. Otherwise, if you’re signing up for a new service, be sure to include Sports HD with your choice of channel packs. Every sports channel is available in high definition at no extra charge – Foxtel’s HD add-on is now included in the Sports HD pack.

It’s picture quality that has to be seen to be believed. A first for Australian television and exclusive to Foxtel, it’s only available to satellite customers with the new iQ4 box.
