The best things in life are free, but the even better things in life are free for 14 days. Enter: Kayo. With over 50 sports able to be streamed live and on-demand, Kayo has cemented itself as a mainstay for all sporting fans looking for a one-stop-shop for their league or team. Sports available on Kayo range from basketball, football and AFL, to pool, golf and even surfing. But through the grace of the sporting gods, fans can dip their toe in the pool of streaming to see if it’s what they are looking for with a free trial. But how exactly do you sign up to a Kayo free trial, and are there any terms and conditions? Find out in this Canstar Blue guide.
How to get a Kayo free trial
To get your Kayo free trial, all you have to do is sign up for a Kayo account via the Kayo website, and click the ‘New customers get a 14-day free trial’ button. Once you’ve clicked this, you’ll be asked to select your preferred plan – either the One, Basic or Premium plans – which will be what you sign up to if you continue your account after the free trial. Once you’ve selected your account, fill in your personal details, follow the prompts and then you’ll have a Kayo account set up, with the free trial ready to go for the next 14 days.

What does a Kayo free trial include?
Kayo’s free trial includes everything a paid Kayo subscription offers, including live and on-demand coverage of over 50 sports, in addition to documentaries, classic matches and highlight reels, in addition to features such as SplitView, Kayo Minis, Interactive Stats, Key Moments and simultaneous streams. The only content the Kayo free trial doesn’t cover is the Main Event Pay-per-View boxing matches, which cost extra, regardless if you have a paid account or not.
What devices can I watch Kayo on?
You can stream sports through Kayo on a variety of devices, including TVs, laptops and mobile phones. For Apple users, iPhone and iPads with iOS 11 or later will work, while Android users will need Android 6+ installed to stream using their mobile or tablet. Select Apple TV, Android TV, Hisense TV, Samsung TV, Telstra TV Box, and Chromecast models are all able to stream Kayo through a compatible TV, with up-to-date versions of Google Chrome, Safari, Firefox and Microsoft Edge also able to stream Kayo.
Can I get multiple free trials with Kayo?
Unfortunately, Kayo’s free trial is only available to new customers, meaning you cannot use your details again to secure another free trial, so make sure to soak in as much as you can. However, if you’ve only signed up to Kayo Freebies in the past (and not a paid subscription), you can also sign up to a Kayo free trial.
Are there any other ways that I can get a Kayo free trial?
Kayo occasionally collaborate with other brands to release promotions. For example, Kayo joined forces with Carlton United Breweries in mid-2021 to give customers two months of Kayo for free when purchasing specially marked cases of VB or Carlton Draught (with this promotion no longer available). Keep your eyes peeled for more offers like this in the future.
What can I watch after my Kayo free trial ends?
For customers who don’t want to purchase a subscription after their trial ends, the Freebies section is the perfect middle-ground. Kayo Freebies is a selection of shows on Kayo that are accessible to everyone – this means paying and non-paying customers can watch the content. The selection of content available on Freebies is updated regularly, meaning you’ll never get bored, even as a non-paying customer.
Will Kayo get rid of its free trial?
There’s been no indication from Kayo that it will end its free trial offer, but both Netflix and Disney+ removed their free trial offerings in Australia, meaning there’s always a chance the Kayo free trial may be a thing of the past. But with Kayo offering free content outside of its free trial, it’s not all bad news for sports fans.
