What Sports are Available on the Foxtel Now Sports Pack
Depending on your taste in sports this list could vary significantly, but these are some of the more popular sports and shows available in the Foxtel Now Sports pack. Select sports are now back on the screen live with many others you can relive on-demand.
How much does Foxtel Now Sport cost?
Considering all that you get in this pack, and that you can stream it whether you’re at home or on the go, it comes in relatively cheap. The base Essentials pack is $25/month, while all the sports channels are $29/month, meaning in total you’ll pay $54/month. And that’s it – there are no sign-up fees, installation fees, or other hidden costs.
If you’re mainly after this pack for the sports, though, you probably don’t need or want the extra channels, because all your time’s gonna be spent soaking up all the live sport action from around the globe. And the good news is that there’s now a much cheaper option that’ll bring you all the sport you can handle for only $25/month – Kayo Sports.
What are the Foxtel Now Streaming Alternatives
Revolutionising sports streaming in Australia by removing the focus on “channels” and instead letting you browse, follow and stream your favourite specific sports and teams, Kayo Sports is a groundbreaking sports-only streaming service that’s backed by the global power of the Fox Sports network. That means you get access to every sport and every event that you’d find on Foxtel Now – but you don’t have to pay for channel packs you don’t want.
Kayo delivers sports streamed live, on delay (you can come in whenever you like and start from the beginning, even if the game’s still in progress) or replayed on demand. It includes innovative features such as Split View (letting you watch multiple sports feeds on screen at once), Key Moments and Live Stats. And it’s all in full high definition, too.
You can check out what Kayo Sports has to offer by trying it completely free for two weeks, and if you like what you see, it’ll only cost $25/month for full access to everything. As a cheaper alternative, you can also subscribe to Kayo via Telstra to get $10/month discounts for 12 months!
Sign up to Kayo’s FREE 14 day trial offer
Live sport returns to Kayo, with every game and every round from the NRL and AFL, action from the Super Rugby, UFC and V8 Supercars – all available on Kayo’s 14 day trial.
