Kayo Sports 2 Month Basic Plan $5 Using Voucher (for New and Inactive Kayo Customers)

3480
TLSTFF

This kinda leverages this deal posted a few days ago, so apologies if this breaks some sort of etiquette (this is the first deal I've posted).

Just click the "Got a voucher?" button on the Kayo site, and use the code TLSTFF
(I'm guessing it stands for "Telstra Two For Five")

Here's the description after entering the code…

Get 2 months for $5!

Sign up to our Kayo Basic service before Sunday 14th April and get your first 2 Months for just $5^

^New Kayo customers only. Kayo Basic only. Customers will be charged $25 for their third consecutive month unless they cancel prior to the third month billing date

Even though it says new customers only I was able to apply it to an inactive account I'd used for a previous trial (the $5 Feb deal).

I found the code by attempting to sign-up for the Telstra deal.
As it said "new customers only" I figured I'd setup a new Kayo account using a different email address. But I couldn't get through the Kayo sign-up process, it wouldn’t let me verify the SMS code as my mobile number was still linked the account from my previous trial.
And there doesn't appear to be a way to login to inactive accounts and change anything (like deleting your number), or even to delete the whole account. Presumably you have to contact their support to have them do it for you.

As I only have 1 Telstra post paid account I thought I was out of luck, but after taking a look at the URL Telstra use to pass you over to Kayo I noticed the voucher/code.
So I logged back into my old/inactive account that I'd used for a previous trial, put in the code, and it worked like any normal renewal.
I can see 2 pending charges on my card from them for $1.00 and $2.50, and the invoice history in the billing screen in Kayo shows the $2.50 charge. Unlike people in the comments of the other thread who were saying they got changed the full $25.00

    Works great for inactive accounts

    Reactivated my account 2 days ago for the F1 season. Doh,

    •  

      Just a note: since the deal runs until mid-april, you could wait until you're about to roll over and quit/renew.

    They've been billing this at full rate quite often when people aren't eligible…

    •  

      Just happened to me.
      Said $2.50 all the way through and then the email came through saying I’d been charged $25.
      They wouldn’t refund and cancel the sub either unfortunately

    •  

      Just happened to me - both TV's at home weren't receiving the channel for the footy, so I signed up for the $5 a month for two months, checked my bank account and i've been charged 25. Have contacted them to get this sorted but I don't like my chances.. happy to completely write this service off if they don't do something about it though.

    Using this code under an inactive account with the same credit card which paid for the initial subscription I can confirm it only charged me $2.50:

    16 Mar KAYO SPORTS $2.50

    Also this is from the confirmation e-mail:

    Hi Reveen,

    Welcome to Kayo Sports.

    You have purchased the Basic package which costs $25 per month.

    You are also receiving a Telstra $5 for 2 months offer.

    Your subscription will be renewed monthly via your preferred payment method. Your first payment will be on 16/03/2019 and repeat monthly.

    We'll send you more info about getting the most from Kayo shortly, but for now - it's time to get into your favourite sports.

      Thanks for posting this, good additional info I should have included it in my post.
      I also used the same card as my previous trial.
      And the email confirms it’s related to the Telstra deal.

    •  

      Hey, same thing happened to me. Did you get an additional 2 months for $5?

  • +2 votes

    Reactivated my account after being dormant for a couple of months. Thanks op. As described, I see $1 & $2.5 charges.

  •  

    Whereabouts is the field to enter the code? Or does it only appear on dormant accounts?

    • +1 vote

      Front page says “got a voucher”. Click that and enter code.

    •  

      Do you already have an active subscription?
      If so, I’m guessing this won’t work.
      Only for new and inactive/dormant accounts.

  •  

    Oh nice - cheers OP :)

  •  

    Cheers OP!

    Worked a charm on my inactive account, previously had a $5 month deal on it

  •  

    Worked for me as well (inactive account)!!

  •  

    Legend, just reactivated my account.

    Thanks, this will be 4 months without paying full price.

  •  

    Thanks OP. Just rectivated my account for 2 months successfully

  •  

    Got this on my Telstra account. Checked a sister's and another brother's account and they had it to. (under my offers)

  •  

    Thanks. Watch the AFL on Foxtel last year but $. Didn’t know this existed. Signed up.

    Ooh this is great.
    I made a new Kayo account with a different Telstra ID to get the deal from the first one that was posted.
    I will just cancel that at the end of the 1st month then sign up for this deal reactivating my old account on 13/04!
    Ends up being 3 months at $2.50.
    Thanks OP!!!

    •  

      Yeah same. Does it expire on 13th April then?

      • +1 vote

        Yeah.
        OP mentioned it and it's shown once you enter the promo code:
        "Sign up to our Kayo Basic service before Sunday 14th April and get your first 2 Months for just $5".
        So just make sure you sign up for new account with promo code on 13th and cancel your old one before it renews for the next month.

  •  

    Great first post OP!

  •  

    Thanks OP.

    non Telstra customer and it worked.

  •  

    You are a legend mate, now I can watch entire IPL for $5 in HD!!! Thank you.

    •  

      Not 'entire'… YuppTV has full IPL license for Australia while Fox Sports is only showing 'selected' matches unfortunately.

      I dislike YuppTV due to their stream quality and way too many ads.

  •  

    Nooo I just paid for a full month because I didn't have a Telstra account :( rip

  •  

    Nice. Worked for me as an Optus guy.

    Great work OP.

  •  

    I am currently on the 14 day trial. Does anyone know if I can cancel my trial and apply this code in order to get the promotion price?

    EDIT: Sorry, I did not notice the cut off date for the promotion. I'll just let my trial run out and try it after that.

      NRL is back. F1 is back this weekend. AFL starts next weekend. V8's started 2 weeks back. I'd say these sports are the big ticket items in Australia.

      Anyone who knows anything about AFL knows you need Foxtel or some other non free to air option if you want to catch all the games. They've gotten sneaky in the past year with very lengthy 3+hr delays of games on free to air.

    I considered Foxtel Now barely OK…. but Kayo was just horrible last night, a day into my trial. Guess I won't be moving to Kayo any time soon.

      What was the issue?

      • +1 vote

        Low rez/quality every 5 mins, a couple freezes. Nothing wrong with my NBN, I reckon its Kayo bandwidth

        •  

          I've had Kayo for a few weeks now runs via Mi Box S (native app) & Fibre Internet…works fine, no real dropouts…sometimes it freezes if i keep skipping 10-15mins at a time to skip things but nothing to write home about. Maybe you have too much running on your network? try running it off a different bandwidth?

          I got the same issue here, tried to stream on Nvidia Shield yesterday and got constant low res drops (down to like 360p) although my internet was 50/5, really wasn't a good experience and wasn't sure why it was happening.

          Using it on my xbox one with the web browser.

          friday saturday were fine

          sunday i got the same, quality kept dropping every 5 mins

    • +5 votes

      Yeah please explain the issue? I have found recently that most people's poor reviews are down to user error or not having premium products to support what they have purchased.

      Thanks

      What device are you playing with? I use an AppleTV and NBN and it looks beautiful better than FTA by a country mile

    •  

      I found the opposite. Have had Foxtel Now for the last couple of years for the footy and Kayo is miles better. The quality is significantly better plus it's just more user friendly (e.g. easy to watch replays of games/start from the beginning of a game etc.). Would highly recommend.

  •  

    Thanx OP, got in on this and sideloaded the apk onto my vodatv box for footy tonight. Funny how the mibox can get the app through the play store but voda cant.

    • +1 vote

      Ah I was waiting for a reference to mibox, so it's a direct download from Google play to mibox and you're set?

      • +1 vote

        Yeah mate, on the mibox just search for kayo in playstore and install. Im using the shield apk for the vodatv and it works, but on the one game (nrl) I have tested it on was limited to 720p when the native kayo app on the mi goes to 1080p. Will extract the mibox apk and test it on the vodatv to see if its better or not.

        •  

          Haven't tested switching the apks as I watched Sundays NRL live at 1080p so all good. The earlier game I might have had some internet issues or the stream had issues.

  •  

    Can you cancel from Kayo at any time and just be charged for the remainder of that month?

    • +5 votes

      You can cancel any time and still get to use it until the end of the billing period. So for this deal you can cancel after the first month and still get the rest of the second month.

    For those unaware, a Kodi add-on for Kayo was recently released, which works on the Xbox One and cheap Kodi boxes (as well as the Shield / Vodafone TV / Mi Box etc):

      Ooh. Thanks for this. Gonna try it on my Xbox since it's got a wired internet connection; may be a bit more reliable than using Chromecast.

  •  

    Has anyone successfully cancelled a current account and immediately resigned with this deal?

  •  

    Worked perfectly with my inactive account. Thanks OP

  •  

    Thanks OP - worked perfectly on a new account (hadn't signed up prior to today)

    with the influx of cheap belong simcards, I am just signing up for free trials for kayo every 2 weeks.

  •  

    Anyone keen to go half with a new kayo account?

  •  

    Thanks op. :)
    No lacrosse or hurling.

  •  

    Awesome thanks!

  •  

    NBA playoffs begin on 14th April 2019!!!

  •  

    So wait for my trial to expire on the 29th? then i can sign back in and use this code?

    •  

      Yep should work.

      I originally signed up with my fiances email and cancelled after the free trial. The voucher works on the inactive account.

      So i'll wait for my free trial to expire on the 29th then sign up again. Gotta maximise that free trial time.

  •  

    It said $2.50 per month the whole time whilst re activating my inactive account.
    Once I paid I received and email saying that I had been charged $25.
    Even though it said $2.50 ( $5 2 month offer )
    Spoke to support and there is nothing they can do..
    So $25 for the one month when I wouldn’t even have bothered for that.
    GG Kayo.

    •  

      Unlucky!
      I was a bit apprehensive the whole time in reactivation, almost all to the point I didn't reactivate.
      Thankfully I was only charged the $2.50 after checking the cc statement.

      I split the month with a mate, and we still have a couple of weeks to run on his month but took the offer in case they shut this code down early.

    •  

      Spoke to support and there is nothing they can do..

      lol what a cop out. They can absolutely refund you at their discretion.
