Streaming Sports in Australia: Watch the action on the go with these services
Whether it's played with a ball, steered with a wheel or a fist flying towards your head there are tailor-made online services fit for any fan.
Sports streaming Finder™ helps you easily compare streaming services for sport. While sports streaming has grown to become the norm here in Australia, broadcast rights can still switch around all the time.
That can make it tricky to find where to get your sporting fix. So below we've listed out some of the major Australian and international sports competitions and the broadcasters and distributors that currently hold the rights.
Compare sports streaming platforms
Depending on the sport you want to watch, there are a generally a few ways to watch your team play online.
Some sports have their own dedicated apps like League Pass or NFL Game Pass, while others like the NRL, AFL or cricket are exclusive or fragmented through services like Kayo, Stan Sport and beIN SPORTS CONNECT.
There are more sports being made available for digital streaming every year, so even if your sport of choice isn't currently available to stream, expect it to arrive sooner rather than later.

What you need to stream sports in Australia
Sports streaming in Australia has now evolved to the point where each app is near available on every mobile, tablet, internet browser, gaming console, Smart TV or dedicated streaming hardware like Chromecast or Apple TV. So you'll almost always have a device that allows you to watch it.
Of course there's the odd service that will be available on PlayStation, but not Xbox. Smart TVs that were made prior to 2019 or cheaper brand models also aren't much help without a Chromecast.
However, device availability is constantly growing and is far superior now to when sports streaming first started to develop and wouldn't let you watch on anything more than your phone.
Your biggest challenge might be ensuring your internet plan is up to speed in order to avoid buffering.
The one factor that is common to pretty much every sport streaming service is that you'll need to pay to access it. In some cases, the cost of streaming might be discounted through like Optus Sport if you're an Optus mobile or broadband customer. You can also make use of the free trials that streamers offer. But as a rule, you'll have to pay to watch sports online.
