At AFANA, we get a wide range of views on the footy coverage from fans. We do our best to lobby for solutions that help as many fans as possible. One issue that we hear is the cost to watch footy.

Save 25% on a WatchAFL Season Pass giving you 12 months access to every AFL match LIVE in 2019, on-demand replays plus the 24/7 Fox Footy Australia channel. Oh... and the upcoming draft.

2018 Grand Final Live on Fox Soccer Plus, TSN2, and WatchAFL in North America

The Premiership Cup

(09/28/18)(Ed note: From Fox Sports (US): "we will not be able to air the trophy presentation due to music clearance issues." They could not come to an agreement with Seven on the matter. US network coverage will end at the conclusion of the match.
(09/27/18)(Ed. note: Start time for all game feeds moved 1 minute to 12:24 AM EDT.)
(09/26/18)(Ed. note: Some guides are showing the GF coverage on FSP ending at 3:30 AM EDT. FSP advises this is currently correct, however they are working to resolve some issues and hope to return to 4:00 AM. Since there is uncertainty, we are leaving our listings at 4:00 AM for now until the situation is clearer.)(9/27/18: We have changed our listing to 3:30AM EDT pending further info.)
(09/26/18)(Ed. note: TSN2 coverage start time for pre-game changed to 10:30 PM EDT.)

No other pre- or post-match coverage will be provided on Fox. FSP will air multiple repeats of the game. Set your DVR accordingly and add extra recording time before as the feed may start unexpectedly (most guides show the start time as 12:30 AM) and after so you don't miss anything if the match is extended due to a tie at the end of the 4th quarter!

Canadian coverage on TSN2 will begin with the pregame at 10:30 PM Friday and the game coverage at 12:24 AM EDT Saturday and run to 4:00 AM Saturday. There will be a repeat on TSN1/TSN4 on Saturday at 1:00 PM EDT.

Initial Schedules for Finals Coverage in 2018 Posted

https://mbsy.co/lhBGw

Over the weekend, we updated our TV schedules page and companion Google calendar to include the preliminary scheduled times up to the Grand Final for Fox networks and WatchAFL. For Fox, all finals in weeks one to three are live on Fox Sports 2 (FS2) only and repeats on Fox Soccer Plus (FSP). The Grand Final is on FSP only. WatchAFL has all matches, live and on-demand. Canadian schedules haven't been released yet but we're expecting something soon.

All live times are, of course, subject to change since the AFL adjusts match times during finals on a weekly basis. We've gone with what Fox provided us and for WatchAFL, with what the AFL did last season. The two vary a little for week one but we should have something firm by the end of August. The weeks 2 and 3 plus the Grand Final all line up and agree with recent years. We'll continuously update the schedules as we get closer to the end of the season and more info comes in.

We also are offering discounts for all WatchAFL subscriptions through the end of the season. It's 10% off for fans using code AFANA10. Be sure to go to https://mbsy.co/lhBGw and enter the code before you select which subscription option you want. Then click apply and choose the length of your subscription. If you have a bar, pub, or other venue hosting a party or showing AFL matches, contact us for a special code and save massively.

2017 North American TV Coverage Is Still Up In The Air

(Ed note: 3/23/17 7:00 PM EDT. We have added almost all known schedule listings to our TV schedules page. We still await the official announcement from the AFL and Fox Sports. TSN did issue a press release today.
3/22/17 9:15 PM EDT. We have now confirmed the round 1 schedules with all parties. We also will be adding Round 2 to 5 for Fox to the schedules page in the next 24 hrs. However, we understand that contractual issues remain between Fox and the AFL. 
3/22/17 4:00 PM EDT. We have posted the schedule info we have so far on our TV schedules page but nothing has been officially confirmed by the AFL, Fox Sports, or TSN. We anticipate an announcement in the next 24 to 36 hrs. More will follow as available.)

With a little over two weeks until the 2017 AFL season kicks off, the league and its North American broadcast television partners are still in the process of negotiating television rights for the 2017 season and beyond. The AFL is hopeful that the deal is finalized before the Round 1 opener of Carlton v Richmond on March 23rd.  This applies to both US and Canada.

While AFANA understands this is not ideal, we are encouraged that the parties involved are still negotiating and are hopeful that an agreement can be reached quickly. None of the parties has indicated that any specific problem is the cause of the delay and we discourage fans from uninformed speculation. While the delay is of concern, we do not suggest fans take any action at this time.

All games will still be streamed on WatchAFL Global to subscribers, regardless of the current broadcast television situation.
