AFL Community Series 2021 TV Rights and Broadcast Guide

There are several options for watching the AFL Community Series 2021 in Australia. While this is certainly good news for Footy fans, Seven does not have the broadcast rights to televise the AFL Community Series on free to air. Foxtel (Kayo Sports/Telstra) currently has an agreement in place to televise the 2021 Community Series live along with the AFL Live Pass App. That’s a total of 21 LIVE AFL pre-season matches between February 18th and March 7th.

Foxtel’s coverage comes via their Fox Footy HD channel which specialises in everything AFL. Foxtel’s coverage is headed by Eddie McGuire alongside the likes of Gerard Whateley, Dermott Brereton and Nick Dal Santo. As well as the AFL Community Series games, Fox Footy will show AFL games across the season, including all regular season AFL weekends. Fortunately, there is more than one way to access Fox Footy in Australian, including Foxtel, Foxtel Now, Foxtel from Telstra and the Kayo Sports streaming platform.

Watch AFL Community Series Live Online with Foxtel

Foxtel and Foxtel from Telstra will have live coverage of every game in the AFL Marsh Community Series. An added plus is that you can conveniently stream AFL matches live using compatible mobile and internet connected devices via the Foxtel Go App (PC & Mac excluded).

You also have the option to watch the AFL online using Foxtel Now, which allows you to access all Fox Sports channels (via Foxtel Now Sport Pack) without a Pay TV subscription. For good measure Foxtel Now currently offers a 10 day FREE trial so that you can check out all of its content (more than 50 sports in total) before making a commitment, and should you decide to subscribe you can cancel anytime if you no longer use it.
