Is watching Kayo is better than watching Foxtel’s channels?
Foxtel has launched a trial version of its much-anticipated sports streaming service Kayo.
The service is available for $25 monthly after a 14-day free trial, with no contract. The service allows a subscriber to watch two screens at the same time. For an additional $10 subscribers can be using three screens simultaneously. Every subscription includes HD broadcasts of live and on-demand content.
The sports on offer include Test cricket, The Big Bash League, one day international cricket, AFL, NRL, A-League, Formula One, NBA, NBL and NFL. Data charges will apply and there is no detail as yet of any data-free ISP deals.
In addition to HD quality, the web interface allows for split screen functionality, a no-spoiler policy and key moment highlight packages.
Customers can initially only watch via Mac and PC, mobile and tablets or Chromecast. The software has been optimised for Chrome, Safari and Firefox browsers on iOS and Android phones and tablets.
Kayo will soon be available for Android, iOS and Apple TV and Telstra TV.
Foxtel said Kayo is a proudly Australian game-changing sports streaming service created to give viewers the ultimate way to get closer to the sports they love.
From spoiler-free catch-ups, interactive stats, alerts and more, the unique features on Kayo are being promoted as the future of sports streaming in Australia.
The content is being supplied by the sports channels Fox Sports, ESPN and BeIN, who are key partners to Kayo.
A big attraction for sports fans will be the split screen option. Here is some detail on the key Kayo features:
SplitView: The only thing better than watching an incredible game is watching one, two, three or up to four at once. Kayo SplitView lets subscribers watch up to four feeds simultaneously, on PC, laptop or tablet. On Kayo Beta, it’s just the one screen on mobile but, once the app drops, you’ll get SplitView on there too.
Key Moments: Kayo Key Moments lets viewers ditch the filler, and watch selected games from every wicket, try, or wipe-out. It’s back-to-back action. Plus, for major codes and competitions like cricket, Hyundai A-League and rugby viewers will see the key moments revealed as they are watching live.
No Spoilers: Kayo gives customers the option to remove all the scores and annoying reveals from its Preference Centre, so fans can view every game as though it were happening right then and there.
