Sky are doing the coverage.

I expect TVNZ would have a unilateral setup, but I'd be surprised if Sky pass on a HD feed to them.

Looked at the (NZ) website for the  tournament just now. The watching the games at home page lists what matches (if any) various countries will be showing. Some countries (NZ included) will have matches 1-44, other will variously have 29-44 or 39-44. No countries are listed as getting match 45 - the final!

Soooo, I decided to check the TVNZ website. They list their coverage as ending at 2145 on Saturday, yet the tournament lists match 45 (30 minute duration) as starting at 2130. Interesting.

EDIT: added TVNZ hyperlink.

Finding the coverage great!
They caused One News to do a 30 minute bulletin which was nowhere near as full of 'fluff' than it usually is.

The HD picture is amazing and the replays on One News shows how crap SD is.

Good job TVNZ (I never thought I would say that).

Agreed was gear coverage  and glad we still get it on FTA.  If you want to watch the Las Vegas  leg live next week  you will need to subscribe to The Rugby channel on Sky. SS3 has a delay package..

Also the stark contrast between the live game feed and the fluff piece during the News in SD was very noticeable. Presumably the HD feed came from Sky while the news item came from TVNZ's own SD cameras.
