How to Get Kayo on Apple TV?

If you have an Apple TV (4th Gen or higher) running tvOS 13.0 or later, downloading the Kayo Sports app is as easy as any other app. With your device powered on and connected, pick up your Siri Remote and perform the following steps:

  • First, Navigate to the App Store from your Apple TV Home Screen.
  • Find the Kayo Sports app in the “Featured” section of the Discover page, or head to the Search (magnifying glass icon in the top navbar) menu and enter the app’s name into the search field.
  • Among the Kayo app’s description and screenshots, click the Get button and confirm your choice. The free app should begin downloading.

With the Kayo Apple TV app installed, return to your Home Screen and open the sports streamer from the bottom of the grid menu. Here’s how you set up Kayo on Apple TV:

  • For those new to Kayo, follow the prompts to create your account, which involves picking the Kayo Basic plan and entering your first and last name, email address, and mobile number.
  • With your details entered, Kayo will send you a one-time code to your mobile number. Enter it to confirm creating your account.
  • Confirm purchasing your Kayo subscription with your Apple ID. You should see the welcome screen, after which you follow the on-screen prompts to set up your Kayo profile(s) and start streaming!
Note: Kayo offers a 7-day free trial for new subscribers. Should you wish to cancel your subscription, navigate to Settings > Accounts > Manage Subscriptions on your Apple TV, confirm your Apple ID password, choose your Kayo subscription, and toggle off Automatic Renewal.

If you don’t cancel within the free trial period, Kayo will charge you for the subscription via the payment method linked to your Apple ID/iTunes account. If you cancel after the trial expires, your subscription will remain active till the end of the next billing cycle.

Note Regarding Kayo Subscriptions on Apple TV

Despite being the entry-level plan, Kayo Basic provides access to the same live and on-demand sports content as the costlier subscription tiers, including high-definition playback (up to 1080p) and all the great features we’ll discuss in detail shortly.

If you want to stream Kayo Sports on devices other than your Apple TV simultaneously, you must opt for the Basic or Premium package, which ups the concurrent device limit to two and three devices, respectively. However, these aren’t available for purchase via the App Store.

An easy way to get around this limitation is to sign up for Kayo through the web. Head to kayosports.com.au from your mobile or computer browser, choose your desired subscription plan, create and verify your account details, and complete the purchase via your preferred payment method.

Once your Kayo subscription is active, open the app on your Apple TV and use these steps to sign in:

  • Use your phone camera to scan the QR code on the Kayo app’s login screen. It should direct you to the service’s official website.
  • Follow the on-screen prompts to log in with your Kayo account credentials.
    • On a computer, browse to streamotion.com.au/activate and enter the activation code displayed on the Kayo Sports Apple TV app.

Existing Kayo subscribers on Telstra can log in the same way on their Apple TV.

Kayo App Overview on Apple TV

Kayo on Apple TV features a straightforward interface, with the app divided into four distinct menus: Home, Fixtures, Shows, and Sports.
