Foxtel has launched a beta website for Kayo Sports, its new stand-alone sport streaming service.
The Beta offer is $25 per month subscription for HD sports on 2 screens and $35 a month for 3 screens on Mac, PC, mobile, tablet and with Chromecast. An app, Apple TV and Telstra TV are all coming soon.
Set to become the “Netflix of Sport” the service under new CEO Patrick Delany will offer over 50 sports. both Live and On Demand, from FOX Sports, ESPN and BeIN, including AFL, NRL, Cricket, A-League, NBL, NBA, NFL and Formula One.
The service is also set to come with split-screen with up to four videos at once on selected devices and a Spoiler Free mode to hide scores. A video with navigation explained reveals several more snazzy features.
Kayo Sports will come with no lock-in contract and a 14 day free trial.
The pricing is considerably lower than the Sports package on Foxtel which comes in at $58 a month (with Entertainment base package) but while there is a risk of cannibalising its current service, Foxtel is betting on thousands of sports fans across Australia as new customers.
Social media is already responding favourably to the new offer.
It will launch officially later this year.
