The league today announced the details for international viewers in countries where there are no current broadcast deals (ie the rest of the world).
Season 10 matches will be broadcast via https://www.oz.com.
Oz is a new pay-per-view platform for the W-League and will be streaming all the broadcast matches live.
Each match is currently $2,99 however there are a couple of options for viewers to test the platform.
30 day free trial
As the platform is new to many there is quite a bit unknown about its performance. Having witnessed the issues that the NWSL have encountered with their move to a streaming service, it is understandable that many would be wary of paying money before testing product.
The 30 day trial is a good way to see how it all works with little risk at https://www.oz.com/football
If after the 30 day trial you are happy with the service (or you are an adventurer and would like to go all in early), there is a monthly viewing pass for the site available.
That pass is $4.99 per month. For the 4 month W-League it would essentially mean $19.96 for 27 matches.
Happily for those who aren’t quite committed to the early morning matches (sleep is for the weak!), there are replays available (A-League example below).
