‘First time in my life I can’t watch it’: Footy fans furious after finding out they need a TV to watch the AFL Grand Final as Channel Seven ban viewers from streaming the game online
- Footy fans are raging after Channel 7 banned streaming of 2021 AFL grand final
Many diehard footy fans are seething after discovering the 2021 AFL Grand Final isn’t being streamed online by Channel 7.
Supporters of the Western Bulldogs, Melbourne Demons and neutrals took to Twitter in frustration when it became obvious early in the first quarter they needed a TV to watch the action live from Perth’s Optus Stadium.
‘For the first time in my life I cannot watch the Grand Final legally… Its not on Kayo Sports, 7 Plus or the AFL app.. my Smart TV and Apple TV are both too old to support the other streaming methods. Great work team,’ footy fan Jackson Davey tweeted.

Plenty agreed with Mr Lewis, with another footy fan in Melbourne revealing ‘I am listening to it on the radio and following it on twitter. Even though I have signed up to Kayo / Stan / Channel 7…Sucks when you don’t have a TV and are in isolation.’
Another supporter was even more scathing, labelling Channel 7’s decision to ban viewers from streaming the game ‘breathtakingly ordinary.’
Early in the second quarter, the Demons lead the Bulldogs by nine points in a gripping contest in front of 60,000 plus fans.
