    KommunityTV inks deals with Tennis Australia and Australian Secondary Schools Rugby League

    KommunityTV has signed national streaming deals with Tennis Australia and the Australian Secondary Schools Rugby League.

    News Corp Australia’s community sports streaming service will exclusively stream matches from Tennis Australia’s five remaining Australian junior championship events in 2024 and every game of the Australian Secondary Schools Rugby League National Championships.

    The live streams will be accompanied by news stories and profiles of the teams, clubs, and players in News Corp Australia’s metro and regional mastheads, including The Daily Telegraph, Herald Sun, The Courier-Mail and The Advertiser.

    Michael Wilkins, managing director of News Sport Network, said: “KommunityTV is a trusted partner to many sporting organisations at a national, state and local level in Australia and is backed by a global media company, unlike other players in the market. Our unique selling point is our fantastic story-telling and our amplification through our newspapers, digital network and social media channels.

    “We have strong ambitions for growth, with plans to increase the ways subscribers can access KommunityTV and to enhance the user experience. KommunityTV represents a strong proposition for commercial partners who want to engage with grassroots sports participants and fans across the country.”

    KommunityTV had strong engagement throughout April as it hosted national events such as Basketball Australia’s Under-18 and Junior Wheelchair National Championships, Netball Australia’s National Netball Championships, Tennis Australia’s Australian Junior Clay Court Championships, Water Polo Australia’s Australian Water Polo League, and the Australian Little Athletics Championships, with more than 1.7 million minutes viewed during the month.

    The streaming service will provide live and on-demand events and competitions across 12 sports, including Australian Rules, basketball, netball, rugby league and various Olympic disciplines including athletics and water polo.

    News Corp Australia launched KommunityTV in 2022 to tap into the company’s national sport network’s core value of supporting the growth of sport, from the grassroots to the elite.
