The dramatically increased output of 4K Ultra HD coverage includes all games produced by the Seven Network. Footy fans can find the 4K coverage by switching to channel 592 on their compatible Foxtel IQ set-top-boxes.

This season is shaping to be the biggest ever on Fox Footy off the back of a landmark seven-year AFL rights deal from 2025, announced last September, while audiences were up 19% YoY on Foxtel and Kayo Sports with streaming up a staggering 37% alone.
