Aussie Rules TV Schedules for 2016

The following is a brief summary of the coverage situation followed by the TV schedules (scroll down to see them!).  For a full overview of the coverage please see our detailed summary of AFL coverage in 2016 at our TV Info page. It has more info than we give on this page.  Coverage in 2016 is expected to be largely unchanged from late 2015 with the addition of coverage on Fox Sports 1.TV Network Logos for AFL coverage

Nationwide coverage of Aussie rules in 2016 for US fans will be on Fox Soccer Plus (FSP), Fox Sports 1 (FS1), and Fox Sports 2 (FS2). Fox Soccer Plus is the subscription channel counterpart to the former Fox Soccer channel and is a separate channel. (Do not assume that if you previously received Fox Soccer you also get FSP as they are different). Subscription fees vary by cable / satellite company from $5.99 to $14.99 per month and may include other sports channels. Two to four matches (on average, will vary) will air live or tape delayed on FSP each week beginning with the NAB Challenge Week 1 and Round 1 of the AFL season through to the Grand Final. All finals matches will air on FSP either live or tape delayed. The Grand Final will be live only on FSP and repeated on FSP. FSP will also air the one hour AFL highlights show each week. Fox Sports 1 and 2 are general coverage sports channels reaching 73% and 48% of US  homes respectively. There is TV coverage of two AFL matches each week (usually live, one each) on FS1 and FS2 and some finals may air on FS2. All matches are available in HD on the HD versions of FSP, FS1, and FS2. There is no coverage on FoxSoccer2Go or AppleTV. Coverage on Roku and Amazon Fire is 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. 

Additional coverage for US and Canadian viewers is on Watch AFL (officially Watch AFL Global), a service from Brave Bison (formerly known as Rightster) and the AFL. It is an internet service and requires payment. 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. However, programming during the NAB Challenge may be free. For the NAB Challenge only, matches available only via the afl.com.au web site or AFL smartphone apps are also listed below.

For Canadians, TSN2 will have two matches per week (occasionally one is shifted to TSN or TSN5), one live plus one delayed.¬† Highlights shows will be available on TSN.ca only.¬† French language coverage in Canada is on ‚ÄúRDS2‚ÄĚ and is delayed one week. The match is one of the TSN2 matches. Occasionally a match appears on TSN, TSN5, or RDS main channel. La couverture dans la langue fran√ßaise pour le Canada est sur ‚ÄúRDS2‚ÄĚ. Il est retard√© d'une semaine. Le jeu est un des jeux sur ‚ÄúTSN2‚ÄĚ. Parfois un match appara√ģt sur canal principal TSN, TSN5, et RDS. (Update 3/31/16: AFANA has been advised by the programming manager at RDS that coverage of Australian football will not continue in 2016. Reasons include cost and schedule. He indicated that if enough fans show interest they might reconsider. We encourage fans to contact them.) (Mise √† jour du 31/03/16: AFANA a √©t√© inform√© par le directeur de la programmation √† RDS que la couverture du football australien ne coninuerai pas en 2016. Les raisons incluent le co√Ľt et le calendrier. Il a indiqu√© que si assez de fans montrent l'int√©r√™t qu'ils pourraient reconsid√©rer. Nous encourageons les supporters √† les contacter.)

We have added schedules for Mexico. The network is ‚ÄúClaro Sports‚ÄĚ. All times are in CST / CDT for Mexico City.¬† AFL en Corto is a weekly program of game highlights.
Hemos a√Īadido los horarios para M√©xico. La red es ¬ęClaro Sports¬Ľ. Todas las horas est√°n en
¬ęCST / CDT¬Ľ (Zona Centro) de la Ciudad de M√©xico. AFL en Corto es un programa semanal de los puntos destacados del juego.

Women's AFL exhibition matches that are televised and relayed via the AFL website are listed near the bottom under afl.com.au. In 2017, when the league starts we will list any games televised and available online.

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


This web page will have schedules below for all networks each week all season, updated as information becomes available. All times are US EST/EDT except for Australia Plus which is US PST/PDT and Claro which is Zona Centro. The display below is sorted by network, however by clicking on the appropriate column header (in blue), you can resort the display so that it works best for you. The display shows up to 250 upcoming programs. Programming which has already aired is not shown. If you wish to limit the display to a specific network, use the selection box to the upper left of the listings and click on the network you want to see and then press Submit. The default is "All". FS2 is listed first, then FSP, WatchAFL, TSN, TSN2, TSN5, RDS, RDS2, Claro Sports, and finally Australia Plus. (Want to add the schedules for US or Canada to your phone or desktop calendar? Go here for US and here for Canada.)
