In terms of glitches - there were some during the initial launch phase, but I didn't have any glitches at all for the 14 days I had it on trial (getting full version when AFL starts)

Quick question .....if you have a weak Wi-Fi signal, does getting the Kayo broadcast & then casting to a television OK ....or in that situation, is it better to simply link via HDMI the IPhone / IPad direct to the TV ?
Depends how week i guess, but if wifi is an issue then it's better to connect with a cable.

I have never had an ad in a game (siren to siren) on channel 504 (Foxfooty) whether 7 are the original broadcaster or not.

I have had Galaxy then Foxtel since the mid 90s. Will be a bit of a change for me to ditch the set top box

Galaxy! Now that's going back!

We never had Galaxy but have had Foxtel pretty much since they were in SA - first at home and then when I moved out. Jury's still out for me whether to switch to Kayo or keep Foxtel, but it's going to be a weird feeling the day I can the Foxtel.

I've had Foxtel since day 1 ......but really, apart from the sport, and maybe the news stations ....the rest were recycled crap

So i got rid of Foxtel last year ...went AFL Live ....and now Kayo is a no brainer & half the price of Foxtel

I remember when there was about 10 Channels and the excitement when a new channel was launched.

And Summer watching the Bid day Out specials with Jabba on Red.


Yeah I am a bit the same with feeling weird ditching it.

TBH I think we will keep Foxtel Basic and Drama.and move to Kayo for sports.

We have five TVs in the house and at the moment Foxtel only on one. No multi room.

With Kayo I can watch footy/sport outside (Crows away games with "The Boys" in my beer garden) or in the shed easier.

Already downgraded my Foxtel to basic package, I then just add/delete the Sports package during footy season.

I use Kodi and Stremio for movies/drama etc so if Kayo can handle the Footy it will be byebye Foxtel completely.

Be nice if they do the app for Samsung Smart TV.

I remember when Dad upgraded to 'Entertainment Plus' and we'd religiously tune in to Jerry Springer on the 'talk' channel. Funnily enough in the early days I watched anything but the sport channels - yeah I was big into footy but this was well before Fox had the football, and I wasn't yet the sport junkee.

Or the hack to reset the parental code to watch certain channels :D

These days, besides sport and Wentworth, there's not much on there I can't binge off YouTube, Stan, Netflix etc.

Hmmm, hadn't even thought about watching Kayo on Kodi, I haven't had much luck watching live sports on Kodi - picture quality always seems poor.

Over the last 6 months I have gone to 60-70% Stremio, 40-30% Kodi. Love binge watching series.

Yes I noticed people mention the beta version, so it was in its infancy.

I can't really work out what the value of this service is though. Most of the sports are either not ones in high demand, or already available in more cost effective ways (their NFL range is pretty crappy it seems).

I'd only be getting it for AFL, and I can't see why I wouldnt just stick with the telstra streaming product...

one thing that isn't widely advertised is that you can watch any of the fox sports channels live too, like you would watch them through a set top box
