Kayo will be the only place to see all 92 matches of the FIBA Basketball World Cup tournament live and on demand, as a star-studded Australian team vies for an elusive first time World Cup medal.
Two of the biggest names in Aussie hoops were on hand yesterday to launch Kayo’s coverage of the 69-year-old tournament.
Phoenix Suns and Australian Boomers Centre, Aaron Baynes was joined by his World Cup teammate and Melbourne United Captain, Chris Goulding (pictured) at the event.
For fans that can’t watch the action live, Kayo will offer every game on demand, meaning that subscribers can catch up anywhere, anytime, on their TV or favourite device.
Kayo Minis, which offer a condensed highlights package for those who can’t catch the full game, will be available for select fixtures, including all of the Australian and USA games, plus the finals.
