How To Watch The 2022/23 A-League In Australia

A bad time to be a Newcastle Jets fan, it seems.

The A-League is Australia’s premier soccer league for men in Australia and New Zealand. Think of it as Australia’s version of the English Premier League, just (unfortunately) with less money.

If you’re into soccer then you’ll be pleased to know the 2022/2023 season is well underway, and with more games than ever on free-to-view television this season, and given there are multiple ways that supporters of the 12 A-League teams can watch their favourite club throughout the regular season, it’s an exciting time to be an Australian soccer fan.

The regular A-League season kicked-off on 7 October and will run until 30 April 2023. This year, there will be a mid-season break for the FIFA World Cup from 18 November to 8 December 2022, where – hopefully – the Socceroos return home with the trophy.

Can Western United taste victory again after winning their historic first championship, despite their rough start? Or will Melbourne City manage to get their revenge this year?

The 2022/23 season is shaping up to be a good one; emerging local talents such as Garang Kuol are coming into their own and former English Premier League players Nani and Daniel Arzani are carrying the mantle for their teams.

Read on as DMARGE gives you the full breakdown in how to watch the A-League this year.

Do I need a paid subscription to watch the 2022/23 A-League?

Paramount+ will be showing all A-League games for the 2022/23 season.
  • All games on Paramount Plus
  • $8.99/month or $89.99/year

All games of the 2022/2023 men’s A-League are available to watch live and on demand on streaming service Paramount Plus (stylised as Paramount+).

To subscribe to Paramount Plus, you will need to pay $8.99 a month, or $89.99 annually for a discounted rate.

But, with your subscription, you do get access to an additional selection of football and soccer tournaments from around the world. As well as both men’s and women’s A-League Games, a Paramount+ subscription grants you access to the FA Cup in England, the AFC Champions League and Socceroos and Matildas matches.

However, the FIFA World Cup is being broadcast exclusively on SBS, so unfortunately, all Socceroos games during that tournament are not available.

Another benefit of paying for the service is access to other Paramount Pictures content, such as films like Top Gun. Recently, the platform also released a Sydney FC documentary looking back on last season’s men’s squad.

If you’ve yet to subscribe to Paramount Plus, you can get a 7-day free trial, here.

Can I watch the 2022/23 A-League without a paid subscription?

The short answer is yes. 2 matches from each round will be broadcast for free on 10 BOLD. This is double the number of games that were broadcast on free-to-air last year.

The games will be shown every week on Saturdays at 7:45pm AEDT and at 3pm AEDT on Sundays.

Also, unlike last season, the games will be free of ad-breaks, being replaced by in-picture advertising. Now soccer fans do not need to worry about any action bring missed.

The games will also be available to watch on 10 Play, Network 10’s streaming service.
