Finally looks like SkyTV may be allowing you to buy options for Rugby via internet.. without a full subscription

Think I may now be able to cancel my Sky.... but I wonder how much the Fan Pass will be... I assume it won't  be cheap

$24 a week for super rugby... that seems a bit steep when I just want a single game
I can actually go to a chiefs game for ~ $25 http://www.chiefs.co.nz/ticket-and-stadium-info/waikato-stadium-map/

They may need to work on that pricing.....

$299 for the NRL season including Origin, so works out to around $10 a week for the 6 months or so....

They need to put up a demo stream for testing

 

 

 

 

What is the video quality like? Can I watch in HD (High Definition)?

that is so far overpriced it's not funny. NRL digital pass is AUS $89 a season for the same thing.

Common sense is not as common as you think.

I can't get to the page at work (we are on an AU network, so it is geoblocked).

Does it have prices for just ABs games? That's all I really want. $299 for a season of NRL - too much.

Those prices are ridiculous! $299 for Super Rugby? Considering I paid $149 for the EPL and $100 for NFL Game Pass I think they're having a laugh.

Can't believe this has launched before they got neon going. No all blacks, only super rugby, nrl and f1. Their pricing is a joke considering other sports prices like epl, nhl, nfl and they have more content too.

Ouch. No ABs. $299 for Super Rugby, plus $299 for NRL. Obviously they don't want people actually using this service.

Just using up Online rights so that no-one else gets them maybe?

My theory is if u want to watch super you probably want to watch international as well. So this is garbage...

Pricing is a bit too steep for my liking.  Just paid $149 for the golf package which was bad enough.  I think Sky at home might be gone after the RWC :-)

I'd be keen to see the F1 races (only sport I care for and not that easy to find "out there")
$25 a race though ..
