- It even has a free trial. But what sports does Kayo have?
Sports fans rejoice, the future is here! Fox Sports have announced the beta launch of Kayo, the app that lets you stream sports live in HD, with no ad breaks. What's more, they're currently letting you try it out for free.
So, exactly what does Kayo have to offer? An absolute LOAD, as it turns out. Including, for one lucky winner, a BRAND NEW CAR!
WIN A BRAND-NEW CAR WITH KAYO
To celebrate the launch of the 2019 Virgin Australia Supercars Championship, and the season opening Superloop Adelaide 500, Kayo Sports is giving one determined fan the opportunity to win a brand-new Holden Acadia. In the "Can’t take your hands off Kayo" challenge, 25 keen participants will go head-to-head (or "hand-to-hand", so to speak), in the ultimate test.
The challenge is simple: all contestants must place one hand on the vehicle and the last person remaining with their hand touching the car will win the vehicle. The lucky person who outlasts the other competitors will win an all-new, seven seat Holden Acadia, valued at nearly $65,000 driveaway*.
To enter, and for full terms and conditions**, willing and eligible entrants should go to winacar.kayosports.com.au and tell them in 25 words or less why they deserve to win a brand-new Holden Acadia. The challenge will kick off on Thursday, 28 February from 5.00pm ACDT from inside the Adelaide 500 precinct.
