    But it's all over in 3 months, so $60 total cost... $60 means different things to different people, but as I already have Stan, $30 is an easy one to get past the minister for war and finance

    Dear Lord, if you give us back Johnny Cash, we'll give you Justin Bieber.

    The other option is to prepare the content in HD and transcode it for basic customers, so you could have Stan Sport in SD for $20 or HD for $24

    Only a dollar cheaper than Kayo, and Kayo has a lot more sport, but after a year on Kayo I discovered that the only thing I watched regularly was the rugby.

    Good point. We only do 2 streaming services at a time because they so much stuff on them. So I'll probably drop Amazon Prime and pick up Stan for the duration of the rugby.

    If you paid for Fox sport for the same deal (or me) then there's plenty of value there. But it's only by comparison.

    I get Kayo for $15 so I'd be paying more for Stan Sport for less.

    Yep, in that case, but I was pointing a couple more years in the past.There was an important if in there, this does represent value for some customers, it's also a complete waste of money for some customers.we can't really be critical of those on the other side of the continuum than us because there are a lot of variables.The key one I see is whether you watch the other sports available on kayo.I agree that it's nicely slick marketing to say that you can get Stan sport for only ten bucks, but add the asterisk which means you're paying the same amount as kayo for less sport and not a mountain of stuff that you can't get already on 9

    I watch heaps of sport so Kayo is a no brainer for me, for people who only want to watch Rugby Union Stan sport may make sense but I agree with Andy's assessment on the previous page regarding the casual viewer in a pub. Most pubs probably aren't going to ditch their Fox Sports set ups so I'd imagine Rugby may disappear to the casual viewer.

    Kayo is a winner because you can get the Fox Sports package without the rest of the garbage (you need a basic package for Foxtel for $25 a month just to get the sport package).

    I hope the deal turns into a winner for Rugby Australia purely to f*ck off Rupert Murdoch and co.

    I can get on board with that sentiment, but I would have the same attitude to it leaving the control of any of the media moguls, they're all baby-eating arseholes imho

    In 2020, I paid $25 per month for Rugby Union, NRL, AFL, NFL, College football, domestic and international cricket, and heaps of other sporting content.

    To get the same content in 2021, it looks like I would have to pay $49 per month (taking the HD option). The only additional content which I would get for my money appears to be Shute Shield and Hospital Cup.
    Have I got that right?

    As it stands, that doesn't look like an terribly attractive value proposition.

    But hopefully the live free-to-air coverage on Channel 9 at prime sports viewing time will good for rugby's exposure to new audiences in NSW and Qld at least and perhaps a little elsewhere as well. Foxsports and Kayo were not promoting rugby anymore and in fact cut their mid-week rugby show.
    Rugby will be Stans only winter sport for a while so hopefully 9 and Stan will promote it like crazy, like they do with other new shows. I think they are planning a mid-week panel rugby show on Stan.

    The biggest issue with Channel 9 apart from the commentary is the bloody ads.

    Shouty Maloney and some of the other apologists are bad enough.

    McArdle was the only one with a set to call out Cheika.

    Ads used to piss everybody off. Now they seem to have become an opportunity to check your phone.
