Best/Cheapest Way to Access Sports?

Hi all,

I watch a lot of NRL, Super Rugby, NFL, NBA, Cricket, All Blacks etc.

My setup for the last year has been:

  • NBA League Pass $36
  • Sky Go (through friends account) $0
  • UFC stream on PC $0

Unfortunately my Sky Go connection is now a no go and so I'm trying to fill the void with a solid alternative that I can use on Kodi.
I've been looking into Kayo Sports but looks like they've blocked a whole bunch of VPNs because I'm unable to signup using NordVPN. I've seen a few people mention dns4me as a possible work around.

I could easily stream everything on my PC for free since I have a good bookmark folder filled with different sites, but I'd rather have something I know will work every time, can be used through Kodi (like the NBA league pass) and is relatively cheap.

Any suggestions out there? $20 a month seems like a good number (as a max spending limit). Guess I could try the free 7 day trial of dns4me and see how I get on with Kayo? (there are a few Kayo deals floating around).

Thanks.

  • Get sky installed at home. You’ll get sky go too. It’ll cost 28.60 per month for sky starter + sky sports
    I gave it since summer Olympics 2021 and it’s been worth it every single day

    • Where are you seeing that offer? Still a bit pricey at $343.20 a year but a good starting point. Only offer I see is one month free and then Starter + Sport = $57.98 a month.

      Saw a people get Starter, Sport, SoHo & My Sky for $40.66 @ Geekzone.

        Just call them and Tell them you received an outbound call giving you 50% off for sky starter + sport. They’ll do it.
        If they don’t, I can give you my details, you can say I know someone who got it and you’ll get it

        Also to reduce the cost, you can share it with someone. I mean sky go credentials. Will half the cost

        For someone who watches rugby, cricket, Olympics, sailing, darts, It’s been absolutely worth it

        Also I share it with three people

        • I know Sky Go can be configured on up to 5 devices but I thought you could only watch on 2 devices at a time?

          • @bigcheese: Yes that’s correct. But you can add more than 5 devices. They have a glitch of sorts. I watch sky go on 10 devices tbh. Yeah but can only watch on 2 at once

            It never really clashes for us

    • That pricing doesn't seem right.

      • You can read my comment above regarding the pricing :)

  • You can watch sky through Kodi too (if you have a subscription).

      Which is what I've been doing (via MattHuisman SkyGo) but my account access has been compromised.

    If you go the Kayo route and want to half the cost I'd be keen to share.

      Mean. Will keep it in mind. I think Basic plan is two screens which should do.

      • Has Kayo got super rugby this year?

        • hmmmm doesn't look like it. Looks like Nine & Stan Sports have those rights.

    • Looks like you need an ozzie phone number to sign up to Kayo anyways :(

        Play a few games of fortnite and you will find someone to help out with that

        I got fam in Oz so that part is all good 👍

      Looking to get the $15 plan through Telstra.
      Let me know if you're still interested in splitting. Will make it $7.50 ea.

      • Yup still interested! Flick me through your account details and I will setup an AP :) That's AUD right?

        • +1

          Yep AUD. Let me get it up and running first then get back to you. Some time next week perhaps.

        • Partner didn't get it in the end. Bugger.

          I'll have to stick with the Sky Sport free trials for now.

  • What about this?
    https://www.skysportnow.co.nz/packages?type=0#packagesSectio...
    You just need the Sky Sport Now app according to the advertisement on facebook

      Pricey

    • Yep I have all of that + streaming sites for NRL, Super Rugby, Cricket etc, but I want something a bit more reliable and usable with Kodi.

    • Thanks for that. Any idea where I can find a list of the Australasian sports they show on their service?

      • Sign up for the trial to have a look, they've got everything I've ever looked for if not on the AUS channels on an international channel (search by sport or name)

    • I thought this was shut down a while ago?

  • is cricfree still a thing? Idk havent been on that site in years

    • I think so, but like you, I haven't used it in a while.

  • I heard if you use a VPN and stream 9Now which is Australia’s on demand platform. They stream a lot of the rugby games for free.

  • +1

    Sky doesn't have NZ cricket rights. I'm currently on a Stan + Stan Sport account share which costs $10 a month. If you can find someone in Oz to account share a Kayo account you should be able to get that for $12.50 a month if the person who sets up the account has the Telstra offer.

  • IPTV on a android box.

  • Do you get the NBA league pass for the whole season for $36? Or is that per month?

  • You could try the VStream addon in Kodi. I got that for my French movies/shows fix and surprisingly found that some of their live sports links are working too. I’ve definitely watched some Super Rugby matches there whenever my Chinese IPTV android box failed. Have also seen links for NBA there but never tried them since I could watch them pretty reliably on my Android box.

  • Need something cheaper for streaming on mobile
