foxtel sport

Updated 21st August 2019

A new year means one thing to sport fans around Australia – the legends of sport getting ready to launch into another season of competition, pushing the limits of endurance to deliver some of the most thrilling moments you can see on a TV screen. Australians love their sport – that’s undeniable – and for anyone who’s truly passionate about sport there’s only one destination to watch it all – Foxtel.

Why should I get Foxtel’s Sport HD Pack?

While the love of sport that runs deep through Australian TV has meant that there’s plenty to catch on traditional free-to-air TV most weekends of the year, for devoted fans of the many sporting codes that get us excited, it’s just not anywhere close to enough. Sport is all about being in the action live, of stating in the action without annoying breaks, and not missing a single game or match no matter what the day of the week or time of day.

Foxtel’s long been acclaimed for its sports channels, and with good reason – if you love sports of all persuasions, what you’ve been looking for is undoubtedly right here waiting for you, live and direct as it happens – all in crisp high definition.

What Channels are Included with Foxtel Sport HD pack?

While it may have started off small all those years ago, Foxtel’s sports channel range has exploded in recent years, and now boasts a huge range of channels with the ability to be there for your favourite sport live and direct, with the help of the ESPN, beIN and Eurosport teams.

What are the Top Sports to watch on Foxtel?

With a whole range of new seasons getting into gear – and the vast range of global sporting events back in full swing – there’s always something for the dedicated sports fan across the collection of channels in Foxtel’s Sport pack. Top drawcards among those channels are the trio of them that are dedicated to a single sport, 24 hours a day. Here are just some of the many sports you can watch on Foxtel:

How Much Does Foxtel Sport HD Cost?

Access to all of the channels across the vast Foxtel sports universe alongside over 40 entertainment, news, music and doco channels is surprisingly affordable, coming in at only $68 per month on a 12-month plan. That gets you all the channels – plus HD where available, which includes each and every Foxtel sports channel. And as a Sports HD customer, you’ll also get bonus access to the brand new Foxtel 4K channel, which delivers flawless, ultra-high-definition sport, movies, music and docos to your 4K-capable TV, via the new Foxtel iQ4 set top box (which is also included).

But before you pull the trigger, wait just a moment – because there’s an even better option if you’re keen to get your sports beamed in via the Foxtel satellite – Foxtel from Telstra. As the name says pretty plainly, you’ll be getting real Foxtel – the exact same service, still supplied by Foxtel itself – but billed through Telstra. And the reason that’s good news is because of the pricing.

Instead of $68/month directly through Foxtel, you can get the Sports + Entertainment bundle through Foxtel from Telstra and add HD – for a total of only $49 a month for the first year! That’s nearly 20 bucks a month cheaper and includes the iQ4 set-top box and installation. If you’re keen to find out more about this bundle as well as Foxtel from Telstra’s other well-priced offers, give their friendly team a call on 1800 007 769.

What are the Foxtel Streaming Alternatives

Before you decide that getting a full Foxtel service installed is what you need, it’s worth checking out some alternative options that have opened up thanks to the fast uptake of streaming services in Australia. And right at the top of your list should be Kayo Sports.

Designed from the ground up as a streaming service exclusively for sports, and engineered with groundbreaking special features that enhance the viewing experience, Kayo Sports just happens to be backed by the resources of Fox Sports. In other words, if it’s on Foxtel, it’s on Kayo Sports.

You can stream events live, start watching on delay if you come in late, or stream past games on demand. You can control the action with the multi-window Split View feature, pull up live stats, jump to the best bits with Key Moments, and take in entire games in less than 20 minutes with Kayo Minis. Every sport is streamed in full HD with a high frame rate for crystal-clear viewing, and you can watch on your phone, tablet or big-screen TV just as easily.

And the price of all that is a mere $25 per month – no catches, no contracts, just wall to wall sports. Check out the free two-week trial and see for yourself what the future of sports viewing might be.

And a great choice of device to get Kayo onto your TV is the new Telstra TV 3 – an advanced streaming device made by US giants Roku especially for Telstra. It features full support for Kayo, including the ability to subscribe to it directly on your Telstra bill. You can get a Telstra TV free with selected Telstra broadband bundles, or buy it outright at any Telstra shop.
