About Fox League
Fox League was first launched in February 2017 as Fox Sports’ dedicated 24/7 channel covering everything League. It has been a huge success to fans of the game, in large part because of the fact it is the only place to watch every NRL Premiership game leading up to the Grand Final. This means that no matter which colours you follow, you can see your team’s progress up close throughout the season.
But Fox League is about much more than NRL. You can also watch International matches from the Rugby League World Cup, women’s NRL games, English Super League and State of Origin replays.
As most games are played just before and during the weekend, Fox League also has plenty TV shows to keep fans interested between rounds. Shows like NRL Tonight, NRL 360, The Late Show with Matty Johns and the Sunday Footy Show allow you to keep up to date with everything league whether you’re after some serious chat or a bit of banter.
The majority of the NRL matches are played between March to October in Australia and New Zealand, meaning these are the prime viewing months for watching Fox League. You can access the channel in Australia via Fox Sports, which is available with Foxtel, Foxtel Now and Kayo Sports subscriptions.
