Kayo Sports - The Streaming Service for real Sports fans

Backed by the comprehensive resources of Fox Sports, Kayo is Australia’s first true sports streaming provider. The service has been a huge success since launching in 2018, allowing Australians the freedom to watch their favourite sports as and when they please. 

Never before have so many of the world’s most-watched sporting events, tournaments and competitions been available on one single streaming platform, live and in high definition. There is no lock-in contractS, a wide range of in-game viewing features and best of all – you can try it all with the Kayo 14 day FREE trial.

What Is Kayo?

Kayo has literally changed the landscape for sports streaming in Australia, making over 50 sports available to watch week in, week out whether it be on your home TV or a mobile device. Kayo changes all that. It’s dedicated to one thing and one thing only – sport. With access to a huge range of sports and events on the Fox Sports network as well as multiple ESPN and beIN channels, Kayo was built from the ground up for real sports fans.

Instead of having to check a guide and pick a channel to watch at the right time, Kayo hooks you up with your favourite sports right from the front page, giving you instant access to live streams and a full collection of on-demand content to catch up on – all in crisp HD clarity.

Kayo also includes unique features such as the “No Spoilers” setting so you can catch up on games without having the result ruining your experience. Another useful feature is “Key Moments” that helps you jump straight to the best parts of a match. “Split Screen” mode also lets you stream up to four separate events simultaneously on the same screen, heaven for weekends packed with bags of quality sport. And for the big events that you can’t see anywhere else, Kayo offers pay-per-view fights via direct access to Main Event right in the Kayo app.

How Much Does Kayo Cost?

There are only two Kayo plans available, and both of them offer full access to everything that Kayo has to offer – every sport, every replay, every live stream, in full high definition. The only difference is in how many “screens” you can stream on at once. 

The Basic Plan costs $25 per month, and gives you the ability to stream on two different devices at the same time. That lets you, for example, stream a game on your TV whilst your flatmate streams something different on their laptop. The Basic Plan has a no lock-in contract, meaning you can cancel whenever you want.

The Premium Plan, meanwhile, costs $35 per month and increases the number of screens to three at one time. That makes the Premium plan great for families, where it’ll help put an end to arguments about whether to watch the footy or the Formula One! The Premium Plan is also a no lock-in contract.

If you’re still not sure, simply choose the Kayo trial offer to get your first 14 days completely free. That’s two full weekends of the best sport in the world for no charge.

Kayo Sports Review

It was a long time coming, but the wait has been worth it – Aussie sports fans can now get on board with a streaming service that’s entirely dedicated to premium sport from Australia and around the globe. This heavyweight player in the streaming world has a suitably triumphant name – Kayo.

Kayo Sports Review

Kayo Sports from Telstra

Getting access to Kayo Sports was recently made even easier for Telstra postpaid customers. The streaming service can now be added directly to your Telstra bill, enabling you to keep all your payments in the one place. And it’s the same great service. And what’s more, new or existing Telstra customers adding Kayo Sports to their bill will still have the opportunity to make use of the two-week free trial. You can also save $10 per month on your monthly bill with the Kayo From Telstra 12 month plan.

Discounted Kayo Sports with Telstra

Telstra customers get Kayo Sports reduced from $25 to $15 per month. Watch over 50+ live sports inc BBL, NBA, A-League,FA Cup, NFL and more.

Watch Main Event Fights on Kayo

For many years, the most-watched fighting events on the planet have been exclusive to traditional pay TV via their pay-per-view channels. But now, Kayo Sports has full access to all the action from the Main Event channel, bringing you exclusive access to the big-ticket bouts as they happen. Whether it’s boxing, UFC, WWE (and even the occasional exclusive concert) you’ll be able to book your ticket and effortlessly stream all the action on your device of choice.

You’ll get access to the event live, as well as the ability to replay it for as long as the event window allows. And while you don’t need to have a current Kayo subscription to pay for and stream an event, you’ll gain full access to all of Kayo for the duration, making it even better value than other ways of watching pay-per-view.

How Does Kayo Compare to Foxtel?

With Kayo being a part of the Foxtel group, sharing the same access to all of Fox Sports’ superb content, the question many will ask is whether Kayo delivers the goods compared to Foxtel.

If what you love about Foxtel is the ability to channel-surf or to sit back and take in live TV, Foxtel’s definitely got the goods. You can record your favourite shows and enjoy TV shows and free-to-air TV as well as your favourite sports. Kayo, on the other hand, is for dedicated sports streamers who are looking for the best sports content only.

How Much Data Does Kayo Use?

While it uses the very latest in streaming technology to deliver crisp high definition video on as many broadband connections as possible, Kayo does use around 3GB to 5GB of data per hour when streaming in high definition, depending on the stream. If you’re on a home broadband plan with a monthly data limit – or on just about any mobile phone plan – you’ll want to be aware of how much data Kayo might use.

As a comparison, when it’s streaming or playing on-demand in high definition mode, Kayo uses around the same amount of data per hour as an HD stream on Netflix or Stan. If your home broadband is unlimited, you won’t need to worry, but keep an eye on mobile usage as it’ll all count against your precious mobile data allowance!

Kayo recommends that your broadband connection be at least at a speed of 7.5 Mbps to stream in high definition, though the service will work at speeds as low as 2.5 Mbps when streaming on a computer.

Kayo Compatible Devices

Kayo is constantly expanding its already impressive compatible device range and currently works with both Chrome and Firefox web browsers for PC and Mac, as well as Safari on Mac and Microsoft Edge on Windows 10.

You can cast high definition video from your computer to your TV using a Google Chromecast Ultra or the third-generation standard Chromecast. Older Chromecast devices will also work, but you’ll be limited to 720p video quality (still perfectly watchable).

Dedicated apps for iOS (11 and higher) and Android (6 and higher) phones and tablets are available, along with apps for Apple TV, Android TV and Telstra TV for big-screen viewing. Apps for popular smart TVs as well as game consoles are also available.

Contact Kayo Support

If you’d like to get in touch with the Kayo team with any questions about the service – content, technical issues or other enquiries – you can send a request via their customer contact page and one of the Kayo team will get in touch with you.

What people are asking about Kayo Sports

  • Who Owns Kayo Sports?

A company called Streamotion owns and operates Kayo, which is why you’ll occasionally see references to things like creating and managing your Streamotion account. Streamotion is a full-owned division of the Foxtel group of companies, which is how Kayo gets access to all the content from Fox Sports.

  • How Much Does Kayo Cost?

The pricing for Kayo Sports is kept very simple and straightforward. It’s either $25/month for Basic (which allows streaming on up to 2 screens at one time) or $35/month for Premium (3 screens at a time). Telstra mobile customers who choose to add Kayo to their bill can get a $10/month discount off either of those plans for the first 12 months.

  • How Much Data Does Kayo Use?

While the exact amount of data you’ll use while streaming Kayo varies depending on what you’re watching and whether you’re using any of the special features (especially Split View) in general you should expect data usage to average around 3.25GB per hour. If you want to limit your data usage, you can set Kayo to stream in Standard Definition, which takes data usage down to 0.5GB per hour.

  • What Sports are on Kayo?

Thanks to its access to the full resources of Fox Sports as well as ESPN and beIN Sports, Kayo delivers over 30 sporting codes featuring multiple different leagues and competitions from Australia and around the world. If there’s a sport you follow, you’re almost certainly going to find it on Kayo. The 14-day free trial lets you check out the range of sports for yourself without spending a cent.

  • Does Kayo Work Overseas?

Because Kayo is the Australian licensee of the various sports that it streams from Australia and around the world, the service can’t be used from outside of Australia, even if you’re an Australian customer who’s travelling. Using a VPN to access Kayo from overseas is also not supported. Remember that as there’s no lock-in contract, you can pause your Kayo subscription if you’re heading overseas and seamlessly resume it when you return.

  • Can You Get Kayo on PS4?

With a user base of nearly 3 million Australians, PlayStation 4 is a hugely popular device not just for games, but also for streaming video. Kayo is well aware of that, and has been working on a PS4 app for Kayo which is expected to be released soon.

  • How Do You Get Kayo on Apple TV?

The versatile Apple TV is one of Kayo’s best-supported devices, and accessing Kayo on it is as easy as heading to the App Store app on the Apple TV itself. If you then move over to the “Apps” tab, you’ll see a list of the top free apps. Find the green Kayo logo in that list, click on it, and select “INSTALL”. You then just need to run the app from the Apple TV’s main menu and follow the on-screen instructions to get started.

  • How Many Devices Can I Use with Kayo?

You can have as many compatible devices as you like set up to access your Kayo account, but the amount of them that can access Kayo at the same time depends on which Kayo plan you’re on. For Basic plan users, up to 2 devices can stream at one time; the Premium plan increases that to 3 at once.

  • How Do You Get Kayo on a Samsung TV?

The Kayo app for Samsung smart TVs works on all smart Samsung models released in 2017 and later. You can find it by pressing the Smart Hub button on your TV remote, then heading to the Samsung Apps tab. Find the green Kayo app icon and select Download Now. The Kayo app will then be added to your Smart Hub menu.

  • Does Kayo Have the Main Event Channel?

While the Main Event channel doesn’t always appear on Kayo, you can now order and stream events from the channel as they happen and watch them directly on Kayo. You don’t need to have a current Kayo subscription to watch. You can see what’s coming up and buy access to the events you want at Kayo Sports’ website.

  • Can You Record Kayo?

No – as a streaming service, Kayo doesn’t offer a recording feature at all. But it doesn’t need to, since all sports streamed by Kayo can be watched live, on delay “as live” or watched any time after the event has finished, complete with extra features for many sporting codes. On-demand replays are generally available for several weeks after the event, though how long depends on the particular sport.

  • Can You Get Kayo on Fetch TV or Xbox One?

Not at this stage; there have been plans mentioned to bring Kayo to Xbox One but at the moment, no time frame has been given for an app for that game console. For Fetch TV it’s unlikely there’ll ever be a Kayo app.

  • Can You Get Kayo on a LG Smart TV?

There’s no Kayo app for LG smart TVs just yet, though it’s possible there will be in the future. In the meantime, the best option for LG owners would be a dedicated streaming device that supports Kayo, such as the Telstra TV, the Apple TV 4 or Google’s Chromecast.

  • Does Kayo Have a TV Guide?

Because it’s designed to be used as a service focused on sporting codes and events rather than a TV schedule, Kayo doesn’t have a regular TV guide even though it offers some live channels. Instead, there’s a “Fixtures” menu which lays out what games are on when, code-by-code, making it easy to jump straight to what you want to watch.

  • How Can I Get Kayo Sports for Free?

Aside from the free 14-day trial which gives you access to all of Kayo Sports for free, you can actually access free months of Kayo if you’re a Telstra Plus member on the Silver or Gold tiers. Silver members get one month free, while Gold members get a full three free months of full Kayo access. Check your Telstra account page for details.

  • How Do I Cancel Kayo?

If you’re done with Kayo and want to cancel, head onto the Kayo web site and make sure you’re signed in. Click the menu icon at the top right, then click on “My Account”. Scroll to the bottom of that menu and click “Cancel Subscription,” then follow the prompts.
