How to watch Kayo Sports outside Australia



Chris, a UK-born media connoisseur, is an expert in watching international TV. Known as "The Global Screen Wanderer", he has travelled extensively across the globe with long stints away from home. With over 10 years of experience he has become the go-to guru for streaming content from home and abroad.

Kayo Sports is the new big name in Australia sports coverage and although the name is kind of rubbish it does bring together some of the most popular sports under one roof.

This means you’ll only need one subscription if you want to watch the likes of the AFL, NRL, NFL, NBA, La Liga, Roland Garros, Wimbledon, Serie A, the Bundesliga and a whole lot more.

At $25 per month, it’s not half bad, it’s about the same price as a couple of overpriced beers in the CBD.

However, like all streaming services, everything from 10 All Access to Stan, Netflix and more, Kayo Sports is blocked outside Australia.

This is a bit of a bummer because if you’re paying $25 but you happen to pop off to Bali enjoying a couple of Bintangs then you won’t want to miss out on your team’s action just because you’re travelling…

… but wait a minute. You don’t have to and below I’m going to show you the way around this.

How to watch Kayo Sports outside Australia

    I use ExpressVPN and tried to access Kayo. However when I tried to open an account it rejected it as I did not have an Australian Mobile phone number. Any ideas? Also although I did not get this far; will Kayo block if payment details relate to a non Australian credit card?

    • Chris says:

      Hi Jon,

      It’s unlikely they would accept an international payment method. You would need a local payment method in this instance.

  2. Chris says:

    Hi Adrian,

    Thanks for taking the time to comment. Sorry it didn’t work out for you, definitely get a refund.

  3. Chris says:

    Hi Mark,

    Seems you’re the same as another user. If someone is willing to lend us their account, we could test many different VPNs.

  4. Chris says:

    Hi Michael,

    Sorry, it’s the first I’ve heard of this. Have you tried connecting to different cities? Also might be worth dropping ExpressVPN a message. If all that fails, send me a message via the Contact form and I’ll get you an account to test with another provider.

    can use free VPN, why waste money on vpn

    • Chris says:

      Hi “Blob”,

      You could but unfortunately ‘free’ VPNs are notoriously inefficient. They’re also a privacy risk. Add that to the fact they’re slow, don’t work with most premium services such as Kayo, the list is endless. Have a Google of reasons you shouldn’t use ‘free’ VPNs and you might reconsider.

      • Glenn says:

        You could use open VPN and hook up with some friends so you get a good VPN that costs nothing and doesn’t get you locked out of many websites, I have just canceled my ExpressVPN as it was always getting me locked out of sites like Foxtel, which is why I got it in the first place.

        • Chris says:

          This is actually a great idea, but have you tested it for speed? If you’re in Europe for example, speed could be an issue connecting to a residential connection in Australia.
