How much does Stan Sport cost in 2023?

If you're looking to sign up for Stan Sport in 2023, the sports streaming service will cost you $15 per month. However, it's important to note that this particular streamer is an add-on to Stan rather than a standalone service.

This means that in order to sign up for Stan Sport, you'll need an active Stan subscription. That brings the actual cost of Stan Sport to between $27 and $36 per month depending on which tier you're paying for. Essentially, you're looking at $15 on top of whatever you're already signed up to pay via a Basic, Standard or Premium Stan subscription.

That's on par with Kayo Sports' $25 Basic package for those on the cheaper end of things, but more expensive than Optus Sport's $14.99-per-month charge regardless of whether you're splurging for special perks like extra streams and 4K quality.

With that said, Stan's $20 per month cost also gets you access to Stan's library of quality TV shows and movies, something that Kayo doesn't offer. So it all shakes out at a pretty fair price.

Did the Stan Sport price increase in Australia?

You heard right: the price of Stan Sport recently rose from $10 per month to $15 per month.

According to the Sydney Morning Herald, Stan initially settled on the original price point after conducting some "price-sensitivity testing". As of March 2023, it seems like the situation changed as that figure rose 50% to $15 per month. That price hike comes just months after Stan raised its own prices in September 2022.

Since you need at least a basic $12 Stan subscription to access the service, these price bumps bring the new total minimum cost of a 1-month subscription to Stan Sport to $27 per month. If you're keen on a higher resolution, you'll end up paying as much as $36 per month.

    FAQs about Stan Sport plans and pricing

    Here are the most common questions people ask about Stan Sport in Australia.

    Did the Stan Sport price go up for everyone?

    Yes. As of March 2023, both existing and new Stan Sports customers will be subjected to the higher price of $15 per month for the add-on.

    What sports will be streaming on Stan?

    More power to a service like Optus Sport that pigeonholes itself with a single sport, but it's tough to recommend unless you're a football nut. On the other hand, Stan Sports has a little bit of everything to offer.

    When the service was first announced, Rugby was the big drawcard for Stan Sport.  The official website also lists two of the world's biggest Tennis events: the Wimbledon Cup, and the Roland-Garros (French Open).

    Stan has its sights set on a broader swathe of sports which is promising. The official list includes the following.

    • Tennis (Australian Open, United Cup, Wimbledon and others.)
    • Soccer (UEFA Champions League, Europa League, Europa Conference League and Super Cup)
    • Rugby union (Six Nations, Super Rugby Pacific, World Cup and others)
    • Motorsport (SpeedSeries, IndyCar, WRC and others)
    • Professional Fighters League
    • UCI cycling
