News Corp Australia's community sport streaming service KommunityTV has signed streaming deals with Tennis Australia and the Australian Secondary Schools Rugby League.

KommunityTV will exclusively stream matches from Tennis Australia’s five remaining Australian junior championship events in 2024, while rugby league fans will be able to stream every game of the Australian Secondary Schools Rugby League National Championships.

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

News Sport Network MD Michael Wilkins 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," he said.

“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.”

Launched in 2022, KommunityTV streams 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.
