The second week of the AFL finals will get underway with the Geelong Cats looking to flip the script coming off a shock loss against the West Coast Eagles, with the loser set to be eliminated. This is The Roar’s guide to live streaming the match online, or watching it on TV.
The match is scheduled to get underway with the first bounce at 7:50pm (AEST) on Friday, September 13.
The Cats might have finished the regular season with the minor premiership, but a loss last week in their non-knockout final has them needing to play a sudden death-semi-final this weekend.
They will play the West Coast Eagles, who only just missed out on finishing in the top four and earning a double chance, but are instead now coming off a big win at home over the Essendon Bombers.
There will be a couple of ways to watch this AFL semi-final on TV in Australia, with Fox Sports and Channel 7 both covering the competition during the first three weeks of the finals.
The coverage on Fox Sports will be shown through Fox Footy, which can be found at Channel 504.
Their broadcast of the match will begin at 7pm (AEST), and you must be holding a valid Foxtel TV subscription, complete with the sports package of channels, to watch the match through their coverage.
Channel 7’s coverage will be broadcast on their main channel in most centres, which is available on Channel 70 in high definition, or 71 in standard definition (Channel 107 if watching through a Foxtel service).
If you’d prefer to live stream the match online, then there will be a number of ways to do so.
The best of those is to use the Foxtel coverage available through dedicated sports streaming platform, Kayo Sports. This is available for $25 per month.
Foxtel’s dedicated streaming applications are also options to watch each game across the first three weeks of the finals. They are the Foxtel App for those with a valid TV subscription, and Foxtel Now for those only wanting to stream Foxtel channels.
You’ll also be able to tune in through Channel 7’s streaming service for free, known as 7Plus, or the AFL digital pass.
