The 2018 season of the Australian Football League (AFL) looks to be one of the most hotly contested in years, with several teams shaping up to be legitimate contenders to win it all. And you can still tune in — even if you’re not in Australia.

How to stream AFL games from outside Australia

The easiest way to keep up with the AFL when overseas is with Watch AFL, the official platform to watch every AFL match live and on-demand while traveling outside Australia.

The platform brings you every AFL Premiership and Finals Series match as well as every AFL Women’s, AFLX and JLT Community Series match. Plus, you get access to the 24/7 FOX Footy channel with news, analysis and entertainment.

The Watch AFL platform allows you to pause and rewind live matches or download matches for offline viewing. You can watch on your computer via the Watch AFL website or download the app on your mobile device.

      Hi Paula,
      Thanks to reaching out to us! Once your Macbook is plugged into the TV via HDMI cable, you’ll need to drag the video window to the far part of your screen as though you were taking it outside of the boundaries of your laptop screen, which should make it appear on your secondary display – in this case, your TV screen.

      Your other option is to go into the Displays part of your Preferences folder on your Macbook. After you click on “Detect Displays”, you’re going to want to choose the “mirroring” option, which should make content between your laptop and TV display identically.

      Hope either of these options help!
