    Fetch TV dont have a deal with Kayo.

    Kayo is essentially Foxtel (owned) & would have to create an App specifically for the Fetch TV box, which condidering that FetchTV works exclusively with Optus Sports (Foxtel's only rival in this domain)
    ...... it would be quite a thing for that to happen.

    You'll have to watch Kayo via your computer, tablet or phone. Believe some newer released TV's will be having the option pre-installed just like Netflix, YouTube, Stan etc.

    You could connect your Computer, Tablet or Phone to the your Fetch box via a USB cable using the 'My Media Hub' function on the Fetch Box.

    A google Chromecast $59 or $49 on line if you wait for them to post it is probably your cheapest avenue.

    I watch foxtel go with it as i have a second box i get that free to cast. It’s pretty good.

    You down load the app. Then cast it to the Chromecast which connects to the tv HdMI.

    Kayo should be the same. Yes works on Chromecast see below

    Apple tv. Only one with the split screen option
    Chromecast. No spilt screen option
    Telstra tv. No spilt screen option
    Only ways to watch on the tv

    Or run a HDMI from laptop to the tv to watch the laptop through the tv. Cheapest option as long as you have a laptop or computer near te tv

    I watch Foxtel via Chromecast - works a treat and works off a phone or laptop.

    For me video quality looks better through Chromecast, rather than computer browser. Of course the upside of watching via a browser is that you can join in the lively forum comments. :)

    You may get a good deal on a Chromecast device during the current post xmas sales. Dead easy to set up. Follow the good advice in the previous posts.

    I've been very impressed with Kayo. Hopefully the price stays where it is.

    There is two so be careful. The ultra is for 4k tvs but it comes with a ethernet adapter if you don’t want to run through wifi. It’s also double the price

    So if you don’t need that then that don’t bother. You supposedly need good wifi. I’ve got nbn 40mps and is working a treat.

    If you are wanting to plug it into a switch via internet cable you need the ultra. If you are using wifi just the standard.

    I presume when you say switch box you mean where all your devices are hooked up to that then connects to the modem.

    Don't follow - casting via CCast makes it easy to rant online as you're then operating a 2nd screen....

    I find that most things look better on TV than laptop - being much closer to your laptop you notice imperfections more, andI suspect that the TV might upscale better, (depending on the TV), given that most content is well below the maximum resolution of the TV.

    I'm really happy with Kayo. I like the fact that it flags goals and red cards too.
