How to watch Main Event PPV’s through Kayo Sports

McGregor, Tyson, Tszyu: Main Event has presented some huge fights of late and you could secure them all via Kayo Sports.

Main Event has long been the home of pay-per-view events in Australia. But just as Kayo Sports has proven a game-changer in sports streaming in this country, the platform now also gives you another option for accessing those huge PPV events.

A number of major events on Main Event can now be accessed through Kayo Sports such as boxing and UFC PPVs.

How do I sign up for Main Event through Kayo Sports?

First of all, anyone wanting to subscribe to these events only needs to know 1 address – That is the only way to access these fight nights on Main Event via Kayo Sports.

It's key to note that new, returning or existing Kayo customers must all sign up the same way.

  • Once you've clicked on that link, click on "Order Now".
  • You then enter your details, including full name, email address and a phone number. If you're already a Kayo subscriber, your details will be there.
  • Once you enter a valid credit card, select "Start Subscription" and you're off and running.

You will then have access to the entire cards once they get underway. But for a limited time, it also gets you much more than that. From the time you sign up, you have access to everything else Kayo has to offer, usually for around 4-7 days after the event. There are more than 50 sports on Kayo plus a bucketload of timeless content all on the one platform for you to experience.

For existing Kayo customers it's worth noting if you purchase an event via Main Event you'll only be able to have a single stream. It does not matter whether you're running a Basic or Premium subscription. So if you share your Kayo account with friends, make sure they don't jump in or you'll receive an error message.

Stream major combat events via Kayo Sports

Watch live and in HD. No Kayo Sports account required. PPV typically costs between $29.95 and $54.95.

How much do PPVs cost?

There is a flat, one-off charge for these events, which has been $59.95 previously for Australian boxing PPVs or $54.95 for UFC events. There are no additional admin fees. It's also worth noting you will be charged as soon as you sign up, not when the event starts.

Which PPVs aren't available on Kayo?
