Foxtel’s Main Event channel has hosted some of the biggest premium sporting and entertainment events in the world over the past couple of decades, giving millions of Australians access to premium events from the comfort of their couch.
Meanwhile, since its launch in 2018, Kayo Sports has become the go-to outlet for comprehensive coverage of over 50 sports for hundreds of thousands of streaming subscribers, who’ve been able to watch their favourite sporting codes live or on demand with enhanced features only available on the Kayo platform – and all for a low monthly subscription.
Up until now, though, the Main Event channel has been restricted to satellite and cable Foxtel subscribers – but many have been hoping that Kayo Sports would eventually gain access to the much sought-after events presented by the channel as well. And the great news for Kayo subscribers is that the wait is over!
Stream Horn vs Tszyu Live on Kayo Sports
This week’s massive boxing face-off between Australian legend Jeff Horn and relative newcomer Tim Tszyu has been one of the most anticipated battles in the sport in years. Taking place this Wednesday in Townsville, Queensland, it’s looking to be a tightly contested showdown – both men are still enjoying the spoils of victory from recent matches, and Tszyu currently on a 15-0 undefeated winning streak he’ll be wanting to hold on to. Having watched Horn battle his way to victory three years ago, Tszyu was determined to make this showdown happen – and the day is finally here.
Both Horn and Tszyu recognise that with travel restrictions in many parts of Australia – and with Victoria still in lockdown – access to headline events such as this one is impossible for a huge amount of people. That’s why Kayo Sports has decided now’s the time to launch pay-per-view access to their customers alongside Foxtel, making sure that everyone has access to the big match, whether they have Foxtel installed or prefer the instant access that Kayo provides.
Executive Director of Kayo Sports, Ant Hearne, says “more Aussies, particularly those in Victoria who are in lockdown and can’t get to a venue to watch, can now access the fight through Kayo, which takes only a few minutes to sign up to.”
