I (and others here) recommend Rugbypass.

Search Geekzone and you'll find lots of advice - happy watching!

FanPass? Its not overseas, but at $15 for the day, and solid quality, it seems a logical choice

I would have thought any overseas service would require a dns or vpn service.

What did you mean when you said "overseas"?

I second Fanpass - when I used it to watch the cricket over the summer it was excellent. At $15 a one-day pass will save you a lot of mucking around. Rugbypass will work if you have a DNS unblocker or a VPN. You won't find an overseas provider streaming unblocked into New Zealand because Sky have exclusive rights. If you don't mind an hour delay, it'll be free on Prime at 8.30pm.

I also feel the NZ commentary adds a lot of value

He's so adamant he's right (and usually biased towards the ABs) he should train as a video ref

I'm in USA, but have the ability to "appear" that I'm in several other countries

 

 

 

Anyway I've found that it is playing live on free to air ESPN here in US, so the kiwi mafia rugby party in Seattle is going ahead
