Kayo is 4K in 2024



Recommended Posts

Just announced Kayo will be streaming some AFL and some other sports in 4K in 2024.

You'll have to buy the Premium package (which they have now renamed Basic) at $35 per month for two screens to qualify (At $25 per month you get one screen and HD)

Across 2024, more than 1,000 hours of 4K* content will be available on Kayo Basic including NRL, AFL, Formula 1, Cricket. More specific information will be available closer to launch.

4K streaming on selected content and compatible 4K devices will be enabled for Kayo Basic subscribers in March 2024.

To watch Kayo in 4K, you’ll need:

  • a Kayo Basic subscription
  • a device that’s compatible with Kayo and supported for 4K viewing on Kayo
  • a steady broadband speed of at least 25Mbps
  • to ensure the content you’ve selected is available in 4K.

Has anyone received the $15 dollar a month for 12 months discount offer that has to be redeemed by the 2oth Jan?

Can you buy it cheeper at lesser definition?

You can keep the existing price of $25 per month. This gives you one screen and HD only.

Foxtel in the box will eventually become redundant as it is replaced by a combination of Kayo, Binge and Hubbl.

They've made no secret of their intention to sell/float the platform as soon as they can get a decent offer

Modern day punters have it so easy. We used to watch VFA on channel 10 with a black and white pixel haze. I couldn't even tell whether Eddie Melai or Fred Cook had the pill. And that was on a sunny day. And we never complained once.

Not once!

I was going to make a joke about 'and these days they don't even have to deal with polio' but then I realised that the sulky tantrum crowd of modern day punters would have kept both polio and smallpox nicely incubated for a fresh appearance generation after generation, so...

Here's the to 'That'll do, let's get on with it' attitude of the low-resolution era. 🥂

Personally I'd rather pay for a schnitzel at the pub than hand money over to Murdoch anyway! Once you remove free-to-air games, games attended in person, and games I couldn't watch anyway because things are going on, it works out about the same.

I received an offer for $15 off Kayo Basic subscription, which is currently $30 and looks like it will increase to $35 in February (so $20 per month after the Feb increase). According to Kayo this offer is only for returning customers.

Personally I don't care about 4K but would instead rather Kayo get their HD image quality and buffering to an acceptable level. Last year I cancelled Kayo when I saw how much better the 7HD broadcast quality was compared to Kayo not to mention the buffering that would at times make Kayo unwatchable.

Ah yes, nobody ever complained about having to fix the aerial

Nope! Tell me more!

SO i,m a returning customer, I cancel once the footy's over , got an offer about a week & a half ago for $15 off a month for 12 months. Not sure if it's just for retuning customers but just renewed now. It's a fair saving over the year. Maybe check out their website.

Thanks Diamond Jim.

I really wonder if the hardware necessary for 4k warrants the hike but it's not a bad product overall.

Living interstate it's a Godsend.

last i was aware, they didn't use 4k cameras to shoot the game, so it'll be 4k upscaled not true 4k

So it's really 4notoK

I'm outside of proper NBN coverage and on starlink now.

Anyone got feedback on how kayo runs over starlink?

I think the Digital Membership from the club is a great saving on the Kayo subscription.

Many posters on other sites suggest that the Foxtel exclusive games are in native 4k (no upscaling)

Can you get steady download of 40Mbs plus? If so you will get 4k

They suggest 25Mbs. For 1080 it was around 13-15

good points jim

and if your tv is fed by wifi, you can probably double those figures for your isp connection speed if you want trouble free viewing

I'm with Foxtel, Ive got my 85 inch t.v hooked up via ethernet straight into the wall which if your modem is in another room, such as study produces a much better resolution and seamless viewing than Wi Fi. Ive paired the lot up with a Yamaha 5.2.2 system Blockbuster 7750 which literally brings the house down, plus the adjacent neighbours places as well🤣😇🤯😎

It's this drop from 3 down to 2 concurrent streams that will be most significant for many. And I imagine it will go unnoticed by allot of people until round 1 when they all tune in at once and it won't work. 4K is just a smoke screen to distract from a sizable 50% price hike from $11.66 to $17.50 per user

Digital Membership at the moment is $250 and includes KAYO Basic which is the 4K option. Imagine this will increase next year. 

If you signed up to KAYO  for the footy season and then cancel at the end of September you'll be paying $245 (7x$35) if you want the 4K option/2 Stream option.

May as take advantage of the digital membership for those extra months - as you also get that 40% off voucher to use at the Demon Shop (valid for one transaction).

The drop in concurrent streams is a little cheeky those in streaming conglomerates though

85 inch TV! Forget having the modem in another room. If I had an 85 inch TV, half the TV would be in another room!

This "dedicated" home theatre room has been, the kids toy room, junk room, VCE study hub, and now rightfully reclaimed as "The Picket Fence", home cinema "Man Cave." Measuring 6.5 x 4 it is perfect for watching, movies,rock concerts and the mighty Dees winning the footy!😁😜😎

    FROZEN by Whispering Jack

    Who would have thought?    Collingwood had a depleted side with several star players out injured, Max Gawn was in stellar form, Christian Petracca at the top of his game and Simon Goodwin was about to pull off a masterstroke in setting Alex Neal-Bullen onto him to do a fantastic job in subduing the Magpies' best player. Goody had his charges primed to respond robustly to the challenge of turning around their disappointing performance against Fremantle in Alice Springs. And if not that, t

    TURNAROUND by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons won their first game at home this year in the traditional King’s Birthday Weekend clash with Collingwood VFL on Sunday in a dramatic turnaround on recent form that breathed new life into the beleaguered club’s season. The Demons led from the start to record a 52-point victory. It was their highest score and biggest winning margin by far for the 2024 season. Under cloudy but calm conditions for Casey Fields, the home side, wearing the old Springvale guernsey as a mark of res

    Once again inaccuracy and inefficiency going inside 50 rears it's ugly head as the Demons suffered their second loss on the trot and their fourth loss in five games as they go down to the Pies by 38 points on Kings Birthday at the MCG.

    BOILED LOLLIES by The Oracle

    In the space of a month Melbourne has gone from chocolates to boiled lollies in terms of its standing as a candidate for the AFL premiership.  The club faces its moment of truth against a badly bruised up Collingwood at the MCG. A win will give it some respite but even then, it won’t be regarded particularly well being against an opponent carrying the burden of an injured playing list. A loss would be a disaster. The Demons have gone from a six/two win/loss ratio and a strong percentag

    CLEAN HANDS by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons headed into town and up Sydney Road to take on the lowly Coburg Lions who have been perennial VFL easy beats and sitting on one win for the season. Last year, Casey beat them in a practice match when resting their AFL listed players. That’s how bad they were. Nobody respected them on Saturday and clearly not the Demons who came to the game with 22 players (ten MFC), but whether they came out to play is another matter because for the most part, their intensity was lacking an
