Kayo announces its Wimbledon streaming and post-match content

Foxtel’s sports streaming platform Kayo will be streaming the Wimbledon tennis grand slam from July 1.

The announcement:

The year’s third Grand Slam comes to life next week, and Kayo, Australia’s multi-sports streaming service, will provide tennis fans bumper coverage starting July 1.

After claiming her maiden Grand Slam and surging to World No. 1 this month, Ashleigh Barty will be leading the charge for Australia, and Kayo will be the place to stream the action with LIVE coverage from the opening round up until the Quarter Finals.

Kayo’s game-changing features will make watching Wimbledon even better. Fans who jump in late have the choice to start at the beginning with the ‘From Start’ feature or stream immediately from live. Post Quarter Finals, customers can stream the match after it has finished or get-up-to date by streaming a Kayo Mini – which provides a 10-20-minute recap of the best bits from the match.

In the first week of play, Kayo will have up to six additional streams, including several additional courts and a stream called Wimbledon Press Pass, which will showcase players’ post-match press conferences. Kayo’s CourtView feature will mean that viewers won’t have to pick just one court or stream to watch, enabling them to stream more than one – all on the same screen.

Kayo will provide a daily wrap show with tennis great Boris Becker joining FOX SPORTS’ presenter, Adam Peacock to cover all of the action that has taken place that day. Viewers can also catch up on the overnight action with a morning review each dayiii. FOX SPORTS’ LIVE pre-show Daily Serve will also feature on Kayo, with Peacock serving as host, alongside Becker and former women’s World No 1 Kim Clijsters.

Match commentary will comprise of former tennis champions who have 33 grand slams between them – including Becker, John McEnroe, Martina Navratilova, Tracy Austin and Tim Henman.

A dedicated carousel will also feature on Kayo’s home page across the tournament, featuring a range of documentaries and classic Wimbledon matches, including Bjorn Borg vs. John McEnroe in 1980, Pete Sampras vs. Pat Rafter in 2000 and Rafael Nadal vs. Roger Federer in 2007.
