Richmond Tigers Live Streaming and AFL Free Air TV Guide


Richmond Tigers Live TV and Streaming options

The Richmond Tigers have been one of the more dominant sides in footy for large periods since the game began, winning five Premierships between 1967 and 1980. This success was, however, followed by a lengthy drought before they reclaimed their status and added a thrilling Premiership in 2017. Last year they overcame a raft of injuries in the first half of the season to repeat that feat and add a 13th VFL/AFL Premiership, demolishing the Geelong in the Grand Finals.

Entering 2021 they will be favourites to make it four in five years, and you can catch all the action when watching live on your TV or streaming matches to a mobile device using the options listed in this guide.

Richmond Tigers History and Preview

Formed in 1885, the Tigers joined the VFL in 1908, just over a decade after the start of the league. It took them 12 years to win their first flag, and after going back-to-back in 1920 and 21 they had relatively consistent success over the next 5 decades, culminating in five Premierships between 1967 and 1980. Following this sustained success a much-publicised drought followed, with the side making the finals just twice between 1982 and 2013.

After three decades with nothing, one finals exits in 2013-15 and a 13th placed finish in 2016, the Tigers spectacularly returned to the throne with a dominant 2017 finals series, breaking a 37-year AFL Grand Final title drought for what was once the biggest club in the country. In both 2019 and 2020, they also tasted Grand Final victory and the GWS and Geelong respectively. Heading in 2021, the Tigers will be looking for more silverware as they compete for a triple succession of premiership trophies.

Richmond Tigers TV Rights and 2021 Broadcast Guide

Fortunately, there are several options for watching the Richmond Tigers live in Australia, including the Seven Network, Foxtel, Foxtel from Telstra and Kayo Sports. Seven is the official AFL free to air broadcaster and will show only selected Richmond Tigers matches live during the 2021 season across Seven and 7mate. Seven’s TV coverage is headed by Bruce McAvaney, Brian Taylor and James Brayshaw, alongside some new recruits in the shape of retired stars Luke Hodge and Jobe Watson, and the returning Daisy Pearce. Seven also offers a range of programming dedicated to AFL such as The Front Bar, Talking Footy and Armchair Experts. 

For comparison and as shown in the TV schedule below, Foxtel, Foxtel from Telstra, and Kayo Sports will televise all 17 Richmond Tigers games during the 2021 AFL season. That’s every Tigers match before the finals shown live on their dedicated Fox Footy channel.

As well as these live matches and the option to watch replays at a later time, Foxtel, Foxtel from Telstra and Kayo Sports will also have a wide range of AFL programming that includes AFL 360, AFL Tonight and a new look Bounce. There will also be some familiar faces in the studio this season with live games fronted by Eddie McGuire and Sarah Jones. Match commentary will be made up of a team of former stars including Ben Dixon, Gerard Healy and Dermott Brereton.
