I am flying Melbourne to Singapore on Qantas on a Sunday afternoon. Is there any way at all I can watch or listen to a live AFL game?

Short answer is no. No wifi so no audio or video.
Thank you for the answer. I'll try option 3. Prefer to try and watch replay when I land than option 2!
They used to have ABC and I used to always listen to on channel 2 in the seat from memory but as they’ve retired the 737/767s they didn’t put them back in. Had quite a few sporting events happen while I’ve been sitting onboard!

If you're lucky sometimes the QF pilots may be able to announce the scores inflight (that's assuming if they follow the AFL). Had that happen a few times on NZ (All Blacks Rugby Union) and QF Domestic (NRL scores).

Live ABC on board always sounded terrible....I could never make out what was being said.

The good old days of live ABC while in the air! Too bad 90% of the time you couldn't understand what was being said! I still remember once the Captain announcing shortly after take off that Essendon had won the ANZAC day match over Collingwood while flying back from HKG.
