Stream Kayo FREE for 7 days
Although the rights to watch sports can usually be scattered across the TV and streaming landscape, Kayo has positioned itself as the place to watch most sports in Australia all in one place.
Some of the biggest sports in both Australia and from overseas are available to stream live on the service, but live sports streaming isn't the only attraction as it contains replays, documentaries, highlight packages, talk shows and more.
How much is Kayo?
There are 2 paid plans for Kayo. There is the One package that costs $25 a month and allows you to watch on only 1 device at once. The Basic plan is $35 a month and allows you to stream on 2 devices simultaneously. There previously was a Premium plan, but as of 16 January 2024 this was discontinued.
That means the only difference between the paid plans is how many simultaneous streams you can have. Otherwise, all the plans stream in the same quality, allow access to the same number of sports and are compatible with the same range of devices.
Kayo price rise
Kayo is getting another price rise. From 14 February 2024, Kayo Basic will be increasing to $35 a month and will have 4K capability. Existing Kayo Premium subscribers will be moved onto a Basic plan. There is no change to the Kayo One subscription.

What sports are on Kayo?
Kayo claims to have over 50 different sports on the service. There is a varied mix including big Australian sports such as NRL, AFL and cricket through to overseas sporting leagues such as the NBA and NFL, plus big events like the FIBA World Cup.
There are however some major sports that Kayo doesn't feature, like tennis and rugby union. We have a full list of sports available on Kayo if you want to delve deeper into what's on offer.
What is Kayo Freebies?
Kayo Freebies allows you to access a limited selection of live sport, replays, entertainment shows and documentaries on the service at no cost. While you don't get access to all the content with the Kayo Freebies experience, it does give you access to the full suite of Kayo's features. What is available as a freebie is limited though and there's no personal choice as to which sports or events you can watch for free.Image: Supplied: Kayo

What features does the Kayo app offer?
The user interface of Kayo has a very Netflix feel, not displaying a classic channel-by-channel listing but a mix of all the available sports live and on replay at any given time as best fits your viewing history. There are plenty of features on offer with Kayo, some specially tailored for sports viewing. These include:
- No Spoilers – a feature any rabid sports fan will appreciate. If you're late to the game, Kayo will allow you to hide all scores and news from your user interface so you can enjoy the stream without knowing how it all ends.
- Key Moments – the stream's timeline will be marked with "key moments" as the action happens. So if you say hop in 15 minutes after kick-off, the video's progress bar will let you skip to the key moments you missed (e.g. goals kicked, tries scored, wickets taken) before catching up with the rest of the crowd.
- From Start – another good feature is if you're late to a game, you can watch a live broadcast from the start.
- SplitView – allows the viewing of up to 4 different sports at once. This is a great feature as a lot of sports can clash (especially on weekends). On mobile, Kayo allows you to stream 2 different sports in split-screen mode.
- Kayo Minis – if you want to view a replay of a game but don't have the time to sit through its entire length, you can watch a condensed version of the match in only a fraction of the time.
