For the first time since launching in 2018, Kayo will be increasing its prices.
From May 9, 2022, Kayo’s Basic Plan – which currently costs $25 per month – will increase to $27.50 per month (or $27.99 for those billed via Apple), with Kayo stating that the increase in prices ‘reflects the continual investment in technology and content costs for Kayo to deliver… the best sporting content’.
All current subscribers will be charged the new subscription price 30 days after their first bill date from May 9, 2022, with Kayo stating that those currently on an offer won’t be charged the price increase until after the offer period ends, or cancelled.
There is currently no word as to whether there will be a price increase to the $35 Premium subscription, although Kayo states that any price increase will be communicated to current subscribers.
There has also been no word as to if there will be any additional sporting codes or leagues added to Kayo’s large library of content on the back of this price increase.
May 9, 2022 will also see Kayo Lite to be rebranded as ‘Kayo One’, although Kayo Lite was only offered to select customers, so you’ll be forgiven if you’ve never heard of it. Kayo One will cost $25 per month, and is expected to offer one concurrent stream as opposed to the two or three streams the current Basic and Premium plans offer.
Is Kayo Sports worth subscribing to?
Despite the price increase to its Basic plan, Kayo is still arguably considered the go-to for sports streaming, with its main competitor Stan Sport still only offering a few sporting codes and leagues, although did land the big fish of the UEFA Champions League last year.
But with Kayo offering over 50 sports, even a small price increase may do little to knock it off the top podium, with Kayo One also there to ease any growing pains about the price increase. But as with any decision, it always pays to scope the playing field to find the best option for your streaming needs, with Australian home to plenty of streaming services for you to choose from.
