Summary of Kayo Sports.
I have had a two week trial and have had 1 week of paid subscription. To me, I am totally impressed and a thumbs up.
However, their are a few things you have to keep in mind, but the two week free trial should indicate fairly accurately if the service is for you.
The biggest, and as far as I can see issue is the quality of your Internet. That is the Conundrum. If you have a dodgy internet like we have in the Gold Coast Hinterland that can swing wildly from ok to crap depending on weather conditions and how congested your server is that might be the deal maker or breaker.
Because it is streamed, I doubt the quality would be as good as on Fox, but when our internet is good ( around 7 ) for us, the quality of the stream is excellent, almost as good as the TV. My mobile speeds differ wildly here too from 5 to 33. on my Samsung 5. My daughter on her Iphone gets around 66. My laptop wi fi speed appears to be about 1 mpbs higher then wi fi through my mobile.
This variation caused me to reconsider our internet, landline, and Mobile providers. We switched all three tat were with three different providers back to my nemesis. TELSTRA. One of the main reasons was that if I had an issue I could sort of stop their tactic of blaming the other providers for their own incompetence or worse.
On a few cases I have had to use the telecommunications Ombudsman to sort out some issues that were being passed from one company to another. I have always had a successful outcome from the Ombudsman and it appears the Telco have a lot of respect for it then the Banks have. Strangely wit all the thunderstorms we are having I normally expect our phone and internet to be at risk. Since switching back to Telstra that has not been the case.
But, that really has nothing to do with Kayo, but I guess they go hand in hand. One thing that is important is your Data usuage . I find a game takes a minimum of 2gb, so switched over to an unlimited plan. I also increased my Mobile data for those times I need to use it. But those are only personal issues I had to deal with. Most likely, you have been down that road and hav e it all sorted out. I am a bit of a Luddite when it comes to IT.
Good luck get a free trial and I think you will not be disappointed. Plus you will feel like an honest man not having to watch those dodgy streams which have got more dodgier and full of viruses. But dealing with Murdoch and Telstra is a vipers nest and is a full time job initself.
Beaves.$25 expensive? You’re having a laugh.
yep. So don’t mention it on here then is my retort mate.Beaves.
I am sorry to say this to you. I do not know your particular financial circumstances and it does not bother me unless you are going through a particular tough financial episode which most of us go through before we get through to the other side.
At certain times in our lives even $25 over our budget appears like $25000. That is life or as Ned Kelly put it " Such is Life "
Beaves.yep. So don’t mention it on here then is my retort mate.
Some of us are locked into binding contracts with foxtel paying much more than the $25 fee for Kayo, but we’re not having a sook about it now that this new service has surfaced the last few months.
Unfortunately luxuries in life cost money, getting to watch the boys play on TV is not an automatic right.
