    Ah that’s good didn’t know that was one of the “perks”

    It may be useful if you accumulate a shit load of points over a few years to get new tech without needing to spend a cent

    Yeah, that is awesome when you want to watch a game out and about. It's still screen size restricted though?

    Was excited to hear Kayo was included in Plus but 1-3 months is pathetic. Unless they announce it (Kayo) will be unmetered, that would be good for me.

    yeah size restricted, so on a tablet it's in the middle of the screen. great on a phone though.

    Yes, AFL as well. It helps when you own the mobile device rights and the app, I guess.

    Hahah yes! That's exactly what I did. I'm the type of person if I want something i'll just go out and buy it I don't buy into the whole "points reward program" rubbish. If they offered Kayo then yes perfect, or if it was Spotify included or something. Otherwise, anything else doesn't really bother me. They can't offer me something that I've already got anyway lol.

    Knowing me my points will just accumulate for years and if I can get something for free that's worth while then i'll use it. Right now meh. We will see what they will offer once they've "officially" launched

    Hey dudes, I have a new Samsung Ultra HD TV (1 month old) and I can't seem to find the KAYO app in my Samsung Account App store. How are you guys running Kayo on the newer Samsung's?

    pretty sure it's limited to Telstra TV or iOS so maybe Apple TV.

    correction

    Free install and no equipment fees isn't a regular thing.

    Tried Kayo - quality was excellent most of the time but even on 100/40 there was often quality drops that weren't a result of my connection. Good enough to watch the footy on but couldn't justify the price just for the odd Saturday game.

    Got absolutely spammed by them (Think I got about 8 emails in 5 hours before I unsubscribed) after I cancelled though. Tone it back a bit boys.

    Foxtel should offer Sports only with HD/4K on their STB without Entertainment Pack for $39 a month. That for me is the perfect price. I am paying that now with Entertainment (which i obviously never watch)

    When will foxtel learn to just allow their customers choose their own packs. If they want only 1 they should get 1. If they want two or three they will subscribe to those packs.

    The only reason why I have not gone to Kayo Sports is because I then lose access to BeIN Sports Connect which is free for Foxtel customers. So if my team isn't shown LIVE on one of their 3 main channels on Foxtel, I can just login to BeIN Sports Connect and chromecast the match directly from their app and watch it LIVE there.

    If they catered for all scenarios that everyone wants they would have 1000 products :p

    But I think a little more custom would be good.
