Don’t miss a minute of the available action when you can watch live at home or stream games to a mobile device using the options in this NFL on Australian TV resource guide.

Where to Watch the NFL Superbowl in Australia

Currently, there are several options for watching the NFL on Australian TV. Just in time for the start of the regular season, channel Seven, the official NFL free to air provider in Australia, reached an agreement to broadcast two games live each week across 7Mate. 7Mate will also televise two live games each week during the Playoffs, with the Super Bowl to stream on 7Mate – for a total of 39 live contests. 

ESPN have also reached a new agreement and will be televising up to five live games each week of the regular season, and a whole lot more. ESPN’s coverage includes every Thursday Night, Sunday Night and Monday Night game, an additional two Sunday afternoon games, as well as all Thanksgiving Day fixtures during the regular season. ESPN of Australia will also televise every playoff game, along with the Super Bowl (Los Angeles) live. This represents a total of 110 live games, an increase of 36 compared to previous seasons.

In addition to the live action, ESPN offers an NFL edition of SportsCenter Australia, hosted by Phil Murphy, Trevor Scales and Mark Brown before every Sunday Night Football game – as well as other popular programming which includes Sunday NFL Countdown, Monday Night Countdown, NFL Live and the NFL Primetime show. Fortunately there are several ways to access ESPN on Australia TV, they include Foxtel, Foxtel from Telstra and the Kayo Sports streaming platform, with each game available Live and in HD.

Stream the NFL on Kayo Sports

Another choice for watching the NFL live in Australia would be to utilise the 14 day Kayo Sports free trial, which has no lock-in contract and is available across two devices if you’re looking to share. Because Kayo is affiliated with Fox Sports it will broadcast the same exact live ESPN games as Foxtel, but without the extra equipment or hefty fees. Kayo offers live NFL streaming with eligible mobile devices and browsers, including select PC and Macs, iOS and Android phones and tablets, Apple and Telstra TV, Google Chromecast, as well as Safari, Firefox, Chrome and Microsoft Edge, with new apps and platforms arriving soon.

Kayo will also provide on demand replays of the games they televise, should you need to catch-up on that week’s action. Additionally, Every game will be displayed in High Definition, giving you greater clarity, while the No Spoilers option allows fans to hide all outcomes, a very handy feature if you don’t want to know the results before you’ve had a chance to watch a key event On Demand.

Watch the NFL on Free to Air

Channel Seven, the free-to-air home of the NFL in Australia, has confirmed that they will broadcast live games here in 2020/21, starting from Monday the 9th of September (Sydney time). Under the new agreement, the Seven Network will televise two live games during each week of the regular season and the NFL playoffs on 7Mate, with the Super Bowl shown live on Channel 7.

The 2020/21 regular season NFL Free to Air offering will showcase two games from the Sunday (US) schedule that are not being televised on ESPN, with the first contest airing live at 5.00am and the second live game kicking off at 8.20am (Sydney time). Australian fans will also enjoy a selection of NFL programs on 7Mate that take them inside the action of the 2020/21 season, as well as documenting the game’s storied history.

How to Stream the NFL in Australia

Not everyone currently has, or wants to take on a Foxtel or Telstra subscription. So with this consideration in mind, what other choices do you have when it comes to streaming the available NFL games? Let’s look at some of the best streaming options available on the Aussie market.

Apple TV

Arguably the gold-standard of the lower-profile streaming device for years now, the Apple TV is popular because it delivers. This tiny box is now in its fifth generation, and has recently added 4K and HDR streaming. You can also download apps just like you would on your phone. And that means almost every major player is supported, including the Kayo Sports streaming service and Foxtel Now.

Google Chromecast

This amazing little device now comes in two options for streaming video, both with an HDMI connection linking them to your TV. You can choose from the standard or the Ultra Chromecast version – the difference is that the Ultra handles 4K video, which is becoming increasingly available in Australia thanks to Foxtel. Once plugged in and connected to your home Wi-Fi network, the device can be reached by a vast range of apps to stream video, including Kayo Sports and Foxtel Now. While it’s not as seamless as using a dedicated device – it’s still extremely versatile.

Foxtel Now Box

Another increasingly popular streaming device option would be the Foxtel Now Box. Launched over a year ago, it delivers the easiest way to stream Foxtel Now, as well as YouTube and Stan, directly to your TV. There’s no installation required so you can immediately start streaming the National Football League and other sport on your TV. Simply plug it in and start watching, fuss-free. Of course, you’ll need to subscribe to Foxtel Now’s Sports pack, which offers access to twelve channels including Fox Sports, Fox League, Fox Footy, ESPN, beIN Sports and all the live action available each and every week. 

Telstra TV

One of the most popular devices in Australia and perhaps the easiest to use, the Telstra TV (made by global streaming leader Roku) is now in its third generation, and features support for live TV channels that are integrated seamlessly with all the key services. The Telstra TV supports every streaming app you could ever need, from Netflix and Stan to Kayo Sports and Foxtel Now, and it’s fully ready for 4K televisions, making it ideal for the stunning on screen action found in the NFL. You can obtain the Telstra TV outright, or add it to your existing Telstra account for a small monthly payment.
