Sports fans in Australia, who are fed up with paying for a VPN in their bid to source live action, have a reasonably-priced alternative.
Kayo Sports is a feature-packed platform that delivers both a live streaming and on demand service for over 50 sports around Australia and overseas.
Mac users are afforded the luxury of watching sports content through dedicated sports channels, and away from premium price tags of rivals.
Those who enjoy getting into the nitty-gritty of their favourite sports can watch live sports, documentaries and sports-related shows through Kayo Sports.
Packages vary in price depending on how many devices – up to three – are required to stream sport at the same time, which can cut the subscription cost if shared.
Fans of basketball, cricket, F1, golf, horse racing, rugby, soccer, tennis and UFC are in for a real treat from Kayo Sports.
Their notable user interface feature list, which Mac users can play around with, include choose you speed, interactive stats, key moments, match centre, multiple camera angles, no spoilers, notifications, picture-in-picture video and SplitView. These features outrank the popular sports apps on iOS.
Choose Your Speed
One of the controls on each video offers viewers the option to adjust the speed to watch the action, ranging from slo-mo to twice the actual speed.
Perfect for the demanding sports fan who desires instantly live stats during both competition and while watching a replay. These analyses and insights are currently only available for AFL, A-League, cricket, NRL and Super Rugby.
While watching live action, users can pick and choose important moments that are shown in the green bar at the base of the video pane. Click the mouse cursor on any of these timeline spots to relive the highlights.
The match centre, available under the menu below the main event, aggregates Kayo Mini videos, analysis, highlights and so much more.
Multiple Camera Angles
Offering a multi-angle view for tighter action shots allows viewers to recreate the action in a 360-degree video. For example, being able to see goals, saves or tackles from a different perspective.
This feature automatically removes any revealing moments from replays, which makes the experience as good as watching it live.
Ardent fans can keep tabs on their favourite teams in real time by setting up alerts for when your teams are about to start a match. Despite being offered this feature during the Kayo Sports setup process, users can add or delete information under the ‘My favourites’ section.
This feature allows users to watch sports while busy doing other things on the Mac.
This allows Mac users to watch a maximum of four multiple streams at the same time on a web browser. With Kayo Sports offering a plethora of top class action — thanks to being powered by beIN Sports, ESPN, FOX Sports Australia and Racing.com — viewers can take advantage of their array of features to consider placing a bet. It’s worth keeping an eye on the latest bookmaker offers, including the brand new betting site Down Under.
Kayo Sports’ incredible line-up for 2023 includes NBA basketball, all 23 F1 races, the four golf majors (The Masters, US Open, The Open and the USPGA Championships) as well as the DP World Tour, LPGA Tour and the PGA Tour, Six Nations rugby as well as the NRL and Premiership and Grand Final, A-League and the English FA Cup, three tennis Grand Slams (French Open, Wimbledon and the US Open) plus selected UFC action (excludes pay-per-view events).
Exactly the same domestic and international sports available on Foxtel’s sports package can be found at Kayo Sports, which was introduced in 2018 as a cheaper alternative for diehard sports fans.
All seven of the Fox Sports channels, plus the Fox Sports news stream, the three beIN Sports options and the two ESPN channels on Foxtel are part of the package alongside Racing.com.
As the sports-only platform has evolved, one popular attraction has been Kayo Freebies. This free tier was introduced in 2021, which can be accessed at no cost by new customers after setting up an account. There’s even a seven-day free trial available, and for those who subscribe there’s no lock-in contract that means it can be cancelled at any time.
If you want to discover your best live streaming sport options from across the globe, then maybe Kayo Sports should be your first port of call.
