Aussie Rules TV Schedules for 2018

TV Channels for AFL in North America
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 2018 at our TV Info page. It has more info than we give on this page.  Coverage in 2018 is expected to be similar to late 2017. Information will be updated as necessary throughout the 2018 season. It appears we will get one live game per week on FS2 (sometimes FS1) and three 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. Use code SEASON25 to save 25% on an annual subscription including the 2019 season. (New subscribers only.)


USA

For fans in the United States, nationwide coverage of Aussie rules in 2018 will be on Fox Soccer Plus (FSP), Fox Sports 2 (FS2), and rarely 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. Four matches (on average, will vary) will air live or tape delayed on FSP each week beginning with the JLT Community Series Week 1 and Round 1 of the AFL season through to the Grand Final. Most matches carried on FS2 and FSP are available on the FoxSportsGo apps live and for a short time, delayed, also. All finals matches will air on FSP either live or tape delayed. Some matches will be live only on FS2. The Grand Final will be live only on FSP and repeated on FSP. FSP will also air the 30 minute AFL highlights show each week. 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 (usually live) on FS1 (rarely) 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.

There is now on-demand coverage on FoxSoccerMatchPlus ($19.99 per month) and therefore also on AppleTV and Roku. Live coverage on Roku and Amazon Fire is also available via subscription to the Playstation Vue app. FS1 and FS2 are included in all packages and the low end package is $29.99 per month. FSP is extra at a cost similar to that listed above. Sling TV provides FS1 and FS2 in their upper tier package but not FSP as part of the Sling Blue package at $25.00 per month.  fuboTV provides all three channels in their sports package at $34.99 per month. YouTube TV includes FS1 and FS2 in their base package at $35 per month with FSP an additional $15 per month.

Online

Additional online coverage for US and Canadian viewers is on WatchAFL (officially Watch AFL Global), a service from Fox Sports Australia (in 2018) 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. Please use our links as they help support what we do at AFANA. For the finals, save 10% by using code AFANA10. In addition, see the info in the USA and Canada sections about FoxSportsGo and TSNGo.

Canada

For fans in Canada, TSN2 will have two matches per week (occasionally one is shifted to other TSN networks), one live plus one delayed.  Highlights shows will be available on TSN Go only. TSN subscribers can view matches aired on their networks via streaming and on-demand at their tsn.ca/Live website and on the TSN Go mobile app.

French language coverage in Canada was on “RDS2” and has been discontinued. We do not expect coverage in 2018. La couverture dans la langue française pour le Canada est sur “RDS2”.  Nous ne prévoyons pas de couverture en 2018. (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 2018. 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.)

Mexico

For fans in Spanish speaking countries, Spanish language coverage in Mexico on Claro Sports appears to have ended and we are not aware of any other Spanish language coverage in 2018. Cobertura de lengua española en México en «Claro Deportes» parece haber terminado y no somos conscientes de cualquier otra cobertura de lengua española en el año 2018.

Other Leagues and Coverage

AFLW (Women) league matches that are televised or relayed via any of the networks are listed under that network. We will list any games televised as well as those available online.

Radio

We have weekly radio listings for the AFL at our AFL Radio page updated weekly.
