Sports Flick: A guide to sports streaming’s dark horse
There’s no shortage of avenues to stream sports nowadays, with a spate of streaming services cropping up sporadically in Australia over the past few years. But there’s one that flew under many radars, with an interesting backstory and an even more interesting catalogue of sports. Beginning in 2020, Sports Flick seems to be as eclectic as the year it was launched in, with a variety of sports off the beaten path, the service seems to cater to the more refined sporting fans – that is, if Serbian Rugby League is worthy of such an adjective. So if we’ve piqued your interest, let Canstar Blue give you the conclusive guide on everything Sports Flick, and whether it’s worth looking into.
*As of late 2021, Sports Flick is no longer available for new customers, due to legal issues surrounding its owner and founder.
What is Sports Flick?
Sports Flick is, at its centre, a sports streaming service that allows Aussies to tune into a variety of sporting events and teams from leagues and competitions around the world. However, it’s not backed by any big business, claiming to be ‘built by sports fans, for sports fans’, to give sports streamers another outlet to catch the latest action and scores. It’s avenue into the big leagues though, is to cover anything but the big leagues, with a number of smaller and more obscure leagues available to stream via Sports Flick.
Kickstarted when broadcasting rights were at a tumultuous high point, Sports Flick has steadily built up a stable catalogue of sports, both available under the subscription fee as well as Pay-Per-View content. While the platform was primarily intended to rival major football streaming services, including Optus Sport, the full gravitas of the playing field has demoted Sports Flick to a ‘best-of-the-rest’ service, but may have a few fans in its stands.
How much is Sports Flick?
Sports fans can subscribe to Sports Flick for $14.99 a month, or sign up to an annual plan, which will set you back $99.99, making it actually one of the more affordable sports streaming services available in Australia.
Does Sports Flick have a free trial?
Sports Flick previously had a seven-day free trial, although it doesn’t appear to have any free trial offers currently, meaning you’ll be straight into a paying subscription once you sign up.
What can I watch on Sports Flick?
Sports Flick has a number of sports under its coverage umbrella, including soccer, rugby league, baseball and combat sports, although they may not be the top leagues. Read on to find out just what Sports Flicks covers.

Is Sports Flick worth it?
Ultimately, the decision to subscribe to Sports Flick comes down to what sort of sporting fan you are. For the casual fan who enjoys the mainstream codes, this service is most likely not the one for you. It doesn’t feature any major leagues of note, with only a select few popular sports. However, for the enthusiasts of the sports who can’t seem to find coverage elsewhere, Sports Flick may be for you, with it worth noting that Sports Flick is cheaper than other sports streaming platforms available, but whether it’s worth the price will come down to how much you love your Serbian Rugby League.
