TV Replay

What is a TV Replay?

When a scheduled show – most often a sporting event – is played again on the same network (sometimes on an additional channel) after it has concluded so you can catch up with it if you weren’t home when it first aired. It can also be implemented via streaming, accessed from the electronic program guide (EPG) for a limited time after airing (usually hours). Examples of popular sporting events that have been available on replay include key matches of the AFL free to air, the always popular NRL State of Origin series, much anticipated Bathurst 1000 V8 race and the prestigious US Open tennis championship.

This differs from on-demand streaming, where a program (usually TV episodes or movies) are made available for instant access over an extended period of time. The availability of Replay will often be subject to licensing agreements with the provider, and more often than not it is a function of a pay TV service that has exclusive rights such as replays on Main Event.

    Hi can you please tell me when Round 6 Cats vs Suns will be available On Demand to watch on fox footy?

      As far as I’m aware there’s no on-demand playback for Fox Footy, but a replay of the game runs tomorrow at 10am, and again on Thursday night/Friday morning at midnight, so you could set your iQ to record it for you!

      On-demand video of all the games is available via the AFL Live smartphone/tablet app, though that does require a separate subscription (it’s free if you’re a Telstra Mobile customer).
