As sports around the world learn to work with the “new normal” and fans once again can see their favourite league and codes competing once more, there’s never been a better time for sports streaming to fill that ball-shaped hole in your life – and Aussies have taken to sports streaming as eagerly as they embraced Netflix a few years ago.
There’s now an estimated half a million people streaming sports every week in Australia, and while there’s been some terrific options for doing so, there are some less high-profile sports, leagues and codes that don’t get the coverage they deserve, or require a high-cost subscription to access.
New streaming service Sports Flick aims to change that, offering a range of live and on-demand sports that fill the gaps left by mainstream coverage in Australia, something that will come as welcome news to those who want a wider selection of sports on their viewing menu.
Sports Flick, based in Sydney, has access to a diverse range of live and recorded events, with international football a highlight. You can catch the UAE League’s matches alongside leagues from Serbia and the Balkans, while cricket fans get exclusive access to the European Cricket League, streamed live and exclusive. Locally, Sydney baseball team the Blue Sox will hit off their season in December on the Sports Flick, with international star Manny Ramirez joining the line-up.
Watch your favourite sports on Sports Flick
Over 100 hours of weekly live content and over 10,000 hours of on-demand content.
The service also includes plenty of MMA action, with pay-per-view events available for those that want to catch the headline match-ups. And as time goes on, Sports Flick will be delivering a growing range of sport from around the world including more cricket, baseball and football, boxing, handball, wrestling and martial arts.
Sports Flick is priced to be accessible and hassle-free, at a low $14.99 per month (an annual subscription is also available that takes the monthly price down to only $12.50). For the launch, Sports Flick has made sure that the service is available on a wide range of devices.
You’ll find apps for iOS and Android smartphones and tablets in their App Stores, while those with streaming devices can grab apps for Apple TV, Amazon Fire TV and any device that runs Android TV (including most recent Sony smart TVs as well as Google’s new Chromecast). The mobile apps also fully support casting, as does Sports Flick’s web browser player. On-demand sporting videos can be downloaded in full to a phone or tablet to watch later without consuming mobile data.
With the sporting summer on the horizon, it’s a great time to kick back and enjoy sport streamed to your device of choice, and Sports Flick is ready with sports you can’t see on mainstream TV or streaming services. You can check it all out for free via their three-day trial – just grab the app and you’re good to go.
