Netflix and live sport



Recommended Posts

An interesting development in the US with Netflix to stream some NFL matches. It's apparently Netflix's first entry into live sport.

I wonder whether Fox/Kayo will finally get some competition here? Would that be a good or a bad thing, if they did?

its definitely good for competition, but given how greedy the AFL is, it will more than likely canabilise the broadcasting by splitting up different games by day, platform, etc. 

We can be thankful there is at least one broadcaster showing every single game in the AFL season.

I don't like it. 

 

As much as I dislike Foxtel/kayo, most of it is in one place. 

I am frustrated that rugby union is now on Stan, meaning I can't watch it without another subscription. 

Splitting it further will mean I watch less of these sports.

i can't see any international streaming service having significant interest in a small domestic competition like the afl or nrl

Might be a cheaper way around local content laws.

I hear you. I got a Stan subscription to watch Melbourne Rebels matches this season. Also have Optus for soccer (Euro 2024 and Everton in the EPL). It is not cheap. Honestly, would love a pay per view system where I can just pay per match I would like to watch.

Hope we never go down that route, seems like a logical nightmare for football(soccer) fans  in the uk.

Miss the simple days of Foxtel though, now sport so fractured and everywhere for soccer.

Apple - MLS

Paramount - A-league

Optus - Premier League and Spanish League, Euros

Stan - Champions league, Europa league, Europa conference league

bein - Copa America, championship, SPL, serie a, bundesliga.

I hear you, but if it’s Netflix which most people already have, it means saving $30 a month on Kayo which I’m all for.

If the mega streamers come in they will try and buy rights to one game. Friday would be their preference or Thursday if Friday is not available.

The issue is that Kayo would scream blue murder and threaten to substantially reduce its bid. Kayo (Foxtel) already pays the lions share of the rights money for a rather raw deal.

Can't see it as the cost of providing a standalone broadcast and commentary team for one match for a six month period would make the deal highly unattractive.

Then again Kayo could team up with the mega streamer delivering kayo a lower rights price for the gamble that the loss of one game to the mega streamer will not impact its overall subs.

Frankly as WSW mentions I cannot see a mega streamer being interested in a one off deal in a small market. For them it just doesn't scale and would take up more management time than its worth (unless kayo presented them with a complete package wrapped in a nice bow.)

Also need to remember that the mega streamers are hemorrhaging money and are not so ready to buy market share as they were a few years back.

Well of course not. I assume you’ll have to pay extra but I doubt it’ll be as expensive as Kayo is, if you’re already paying for Netflix. 

I only use Kayo for footy. The minute our season is over I cancel my subscription. Whereas I always have a Netflix account so I prefer to pay an extra for access to football, than to have another stand alone subscription.

Amazon Prime has the exclusive Australian rights to the upcoming T20 Cricket World Cup in USA.

A different value proposition to AFL but it does demonstrate that the mega streamers will go into the Sports market.

Sky Sports has the UK rights and Willow TV (a specialist cricket streamer) has the US rights. Disney has the non TV rights for India with Star TV holding the TV rights

Many thanks

This year I have got Kayo to work reasonably. A wise person told me to update my Google Chrome and now it works without the spin of death. Picture quality is not as good as 7, but that is a small price for no Brian.

I just misread your last word as "brain". Doesn't change the meaning one bit.

Apologies if you thought I was having a dig at you Old Dee. I was actually trying to say that "no Brain" meant the same thing as "no Brian Taylor".

Oh I get it now. I am on 15 second delay these days. I might need to stretch that to 30.

On this point surely Kayo should have a setting that allows you to at least mute commentary from broadcasts while retaining the other sounds. In this digital age it shouldn't be difficult and would make watching matches so much more enjoyable.

Last year I was watching Celtic in the Scottish FA Cup final. For the first half the commentary feed failed but the crowd noise came through.

It was bliss

I get to see all  the goals on Utube sometimes just minutes after the match.

I watch via the app on my Apple TV.  Rarely an issue. If there is, its a router issue.

    GAMEDAY: Rd 15 vs North Melbourne

    It's Game Day and it very well could be the last roll of the dice for the Demon's finals aspirations in 2024. A loss to the bottom side would be another embarrassing moment in a cursed year for the Dees whilst a win could be the spark they need to reignite the fire in the belly.

    THE HUNTER by The Oracle

    Something struck me as I sat on the couch watching the tragedy of North Melbourne’s attempt to beat Collingwood unfold on Sunday afternoon at the MCG.    It was three quarter time, the scoreboard had the Pies on 12.7.79, a respectable 63.16% in terms of goal kicking ratio. Meanwhile, the Roos’ 18.2.110 was off the charts at 90.00% shooting accuracy. I was thinking at the same time of Melbourne’s final score only six days before, a woeful 6.15.51 or 28.57% against Collingwood’s 14.5.89

    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
