We only have Foxtel for the sports coverage and it costs a fortune compared to streaming services that are available. I am a long standing Optus customer. Between Optus Sport and Kayo Sports we will have all of the sports covered that we watch.
What I am not sure about is what infratstructure we need to run both eg do we need a set top box? Do I need Optus Fetch? If the latter I believe that the subscription is free for me because of all of the Optus services I already have eg NBN, 1 x mobile plan plus two other mobile broadband plans.
At home we have an LG Smart TV connected to Optus NBN via wifi plus Foxtel. How to I migrate to Optus Sport and Kayo Sports?
I would like to try Optus and kayo sports before cancelling my Foxtel subscription just to make sure they give what they promise and we are happy.
Easiest way to watch Optus Sports and Kayo is to use Chromecast and cast from your smart phone apps. If you do not already have Chromecast you can buy the dongle for around $50.
The fetch mighty box is good for recording programs and the ability to pause live tv but IMO far easier to cast from your phone to your tv with Chromecast.
Happy to have you on the forum @BodhiBoy
Can't speak for Kayo, but @Davelew's suggestion is a good one.
Now, Optus Sport is available with either an eligible service or plan or as an added subscription for $15/month purchased through the Optus Sport App, which is available via the Google Play store and Apple App store.
I'd suggest the latter. It's a month-month subscription and you can cancel whenever you like.
As well as your desktop, mobile and tablet - you can stream Optus Sport over the following devices:
Because Kayo is HD you might be better with the Chromecast Ultra which will cost the princely sum of $98. Great for watching Netflix as well.
