Best Guide to Streaming with Kayo Sports
Backed by the unrivalled resources of Fox Sports and a long time in the making, Kayo is Australia’s first true sports streaming service. With access to the greatest sporting events in Australia and around the world, the Kayo Sports streaming service brings sport directly to the fans, both live and on demand, in full high definition and with added features you won’t find anywhere else. When it launched to a sports-mad nation, Kayo was said to be the ‘Netflix of sport’. It’s an apt description.
What Makes Kayo Unique?
Though it’s been possible to stream live sport in the past in Australia, it’s either been expensive or of poor quality. Dedicated sports fans have however had to take what they could get, often being asked to pay money for bits of a service they don’t want in order to get the sport that matters. Kayo changes all that. It’s dedicated to one thing and one thing only – sport.
With access to the huge range of sports and events on the Fox Sports network as well as ESPN and beIN, Kayo was built from the ground up for the 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 on the front page, giving you instant access to live streams and a full collection of on-demand games to catch up on, all of it in crisp HD on supported devices.
Unique Kayo features include a “No Spoilers” setting so you can catch up on games without having the result spoiled for you, a “Key Moments” feature that lets you jump straight to the points that decided the game, and a unique split screen mode that lets you stream up to four separate events at the same time on the same screen – heaven for the dedicated sports fan. There’s also the perfect fix for sports fans who don’t have the time to watch the entire game – Kayo Minis, custom-edited bite-sized versions of matches that include all the good stuff in a fraction of the time. More recently, Kayo have also included a search function – which takes you straight to your favourite sports faster – and Interactive Stats – which will deliver live analysis and key statistics for the biggest sports. And the interactive sports fixtures page – a brand new feature that’s still being tested – lets you look at the upcoming weeks on a day by day basis, showing you exactly who’s playing what, where and when.
What are Kayo’s Best Features?
How Much Does Kayo Cost?
Too often in the past, getting access to streaming sports has been a confusing experience involving packages and tiers and plans and a large bill at the end. One of the best features of Kayo is its pricing, which has intentionally been kept affordable, convenient and simple.
There are only two Kayo plans available, and both of them offer full access to everything that Kayo has to offer – every sport, every video, every live stream, full high definition, the works. The only difference is in how many “screens” are supported – the number of devices you can use Kayo on at the one time.
The Basic plan costs $25 per month, and gives you the ability to stream to two different devices at the same time. That lets you, for example, stream a game on your TV while keeping an eye on another game on your phone.
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!
There are no contracts involved at all – you can join and cancel any time – and for new users, the Kayo trial offers the first 14 days completely free. You can sign up and spend the next two weeks bingeing on everything Kayo has to offer, try out all the features, watch sport live online with an eligible mobile device, and cancel without paying a cent if you don’t like what you see.
- New customers: 14 day free trial
- No Lock-in Contract
- Watch on 2 devices concurrently
- Watch Live NRL, AFL, Super Rugby + more

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!
One thing that can use considerably more data is the clever Split View feature, which on some devices can run four streams simultaneously, letting you switch between them. Kayo’s done some clever things under the hood to make the feature work without needed four times the download speed, but it’s still likely to use more data than just watching a single stream.
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.
What Devices are Compatible with Kayo?
Kayo is expanding devices and currently works with the Chrome and Firefox web browsers on both 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 and the Chrome browser. Older Chromecast devices will also work, but you’ll be limited to 720p video quality (still perfectly watchable).
On mobile, Kayo works with mobile web browsers as well, but for the best experience you’ll want to grab the well-designed Kayo app for your device.
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 expected to arrive in 2020.

Kayo Sports from Telstra
Getting access to Kayo Sports was recently made even easier for Telstra postpaid customers. The sports 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 – you still get all the Kayo game changing features like No Spoilers and Key Moments, High Definition coverage (on the 2nd and 3rd generation Telstra TV boxes), and the ability to watch on multiple screens, all for the same price. 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, meaning if you decide the service isn’t for you you can cancel before you pay a cent.
