Where to watch AFL 2020 in Australia and overseas
THE AFL is Australia’s most watched sport.
More people watch Aussie Rules than any other game in Australia.
And, due to its popularity, there are more ways to catch your favourite team play than ever.
Don’t despair if you’ve taken that big job in the USA, or decided to make a huge change and move to Europe or China, you can still catch the big game.
Free to air coverage of AFL 2020 in Australia
The traditional and first port of call for any Aussie Rules fan is to watch it on the box.
And Channel Seven has the game covered.
For Victorian fans, Seven Network broadcasts up to five games per week, usually on Friday nights, Saturday afternoons, Saturday nights and then Sunday afternoon, with Thursday night and Monday afternoon games like Anzac Day or Anzac Day eve.
It costs you absolutely nothing, save for a decent TV set that has a digital receiver or set top box.
If you’re in Canberra or New South Wales, you will get every Sydney Swans and every Greater Western Sydney Giants game broadcast – mostly live and usually only on Seven Mate or Seven HD if you’re lucky.
South Australian footy fans will be able to watch both the Adelaide Crows and Port Adelaide Power play every week and they will usually be on the main channel, rather than Seven’s off shoots, as in NSW.
And, if you are in Perth, you will be able to catch every West Coast Eagles and Fremantle Dockers game live. Sometimes they will be on the main Seven Network channel and other times they will be shown on the off shoots, Seven Mate, etc.
When it comes to the AFL Finals, all the free to air restrictions go out the window.
Seven is free to show every single game of the finals series, including the grand final, and that is exactly what it does.
Pay TV coverage of AFL in Australia: Foxtel, Fox Footy

If you really want to watch every single AFL game live on the box, with no ad breaks, siren to siren, then there really is only one way to do that.
But it will cost you.
