AFL TV Schedules
Aussie Rules TV Schedules for 2022
(11/24/22) The AFLW season concludes this week and with it, most if not all, TV coverage until next February with the AFL pre-season. As a result we don't expect much in the way of listings on this page. We'll add any special events here as needed. For updates on 2023 coverage watch our TV Info page. (9/26/22) While the men have concluded their season, we'll keep reporting on the AFLW right through to the women's Grand Final and keep updating TV and radio schedules. (9/19/22) If you've noticed the delays in posting this season, some delays are due to this: WE NEED VOLUNTEERS and donations. Please volunteer or donate if you can spare a few hours or dollars a month. We'll keep updating schedules as the networks release them. We URGENTLY need donations as we no longer get support from WatchAFL subscriptions.
It goes without saying - we can use more volunteers. Please consider donating (donate link button above) if you have found our schedules useful this year. We need your support. Our schedules are free for personal use - any other reposting or reuse must credit AFANA. WatchAFL offers all matches live and on-demand. We update this page frequently as we get schedules from the networks. You can also get the schedules for FOX on your personal calendar using the USA link and for TSN with the Canada link.
The following is a brief summary of the coverage situation followed by the TV schedules further down the page (click to jump there). For a full overview of the coverage please see our detailed summary of AFL coverage in 2022 at our TV Info page. It has more info than we give on this page. Coverage in 2022 is expected to be similar to late 2021. Information will be updated as necessary throughout the 2022 season. It appears we will get most games live each week on FS2 (sometimes FS1) or on FSP. Coverage in Canada is unchanged from last year. Online coverage is through the WatchAFL service and apps (Android and Apple app stores) which permit "casting" to your TV. The service is now provided by Fox Sports Australia and requires payment. See this link for subscription info.
For fans in the United States, nationwide coverage of Aussie rules in 2022 will be on Fox Soccer Plus (FSP), Fox Sports 2 (FS2), and occasionally Fox Sports 1 (FS1). Fox Soccer Plus is a subscription channel and is the primary channel for the sport. Subscription fees vary by cable / satellite company from $5.99 to $14.99 per month and may include other sports channels. All nine matches (on average, will vary) will air live or tape delayed on FSP each week beginning with the Community Series Week 1 and Round 1 of the AFL season through to the Grand Final as well as all AFLW matches. Some matches will be live only on FS1 or FS2. The Grand Final will be live only on FS1 and repeated on FSP. Fox Sports 1 and 2 are general coverage sports channels reaching 70% and 49% of US homes respectively. There is TV coverage of one AFL match each week (live) on FS1 and FS2 (usually) and some finals may air on FS2. All matches are available in HD on the HD versions of FSP, FS1, and FS2.
We have a table on our TV Info page outlining the "over the top" or OTT streaming options on services such as YouTube TV, Fubo TV, Hulu +Live TV, etc. including costs. All of the services offer FS1 but not all offer FS2 or FSP.
Additional online coverage for US and Canadian viewers is on WatchAFL (officially Watch AFL Global), a service from Fox Sports Australia (in 2022) and the AFL. It is an internet service and requires payment except for the preseason and AFLW games. There is live and on-demand coverage of all 9 matches per round. This is a subscription service for video and fans can sign up here. In addition, see the info in the USA and Canada sections about other internet based options including Fox Sports and TSN apps.
For fans in Canada, TSN2 will have two matches per week (occasionally one is shifted to other TSN networks), one live plus one delayed for AFL and AFLW. TSN subscribers can view matches aired on their networks via streaming and on-demand at their tsn.ca/Live website and on the TSN mobile app.
French language coverage in Canada was on RDS2 and has been discontinued. We do not expect coverage in 2022. La couverture dans la langue française pour le Canada est sur RDS2. Nous ne prévoyons pas de couverture en 2022. (Update 3/31/16: AFANA has been advised by the programming manager at RDS that coverage of Australian football will not continue in 2016-17. Reasons include cost and schedule. He indicated that if enough fans show interest they might reconsider. We encourage fans to contact them.) (Mise à jour du 31/03/16: AFANA a été informé par le directeur de la programmation à RDS que la couverture du football australien ne coninuerai pas en 2022. Les raisons incluent le coût et le calendrier. Il a indiqué que si assez de fans montrent l'intérêt qu'ils pourraient reconsidérer. Nous encourageons les supporters à les contacter.)
