EFL 2017/18 season TV coverage in Australia?
« on: August 04, 2017, 08:49:47 AM »
Last season there was excellent coverage on BeIn Sports, all live games plus highlights show, there appears to be no coverage of the EFL for the coming season!

Can anyone help with any further info. please?

There has been no notification by Fox about coverage, only stuck with them because of the Championship coverage if they have pulled out I will change to the opposition and watch all the prem games.

I contacted Foxtel who confirmed that they would not be showing any EFL games this season!

Apart from AVTV, will there be any links to live coverage?

Thanks very much for that info. (still some hope?).

Can't work out if the Hull game will be available  (in Oz) on AVTV as it's not being shown here!

It's definitely not. You can pay to get the audio from AVTV, but not a live stream.

We are, ar least for this game, buggered.

May have found an option....the game is listed on bet365.com's live stream schedule. You do need to register and deposit funds though.

Fingers crossed the quality is decent.
