Anyone else stream NRL on Livestream? Seems like it just cuts in and out during live games and has become unwatchable so far this season. Had to find a stream from elsewhere. I've had the same results on my Apple TV 4, computer, iPad, iPhone and MacBook.

Livestream has been bad for me lately also.

I've resorted to using rugbypass.com for $20US a month for all rugby and league .

NRL Livestream is working smoothly tonight! Roosters vs Dogs has been perfect so far.

I've got livestream on my Roku and it's worked fine for the last 3 seasons. But this time around every time I try to watch I get asked to enter a password.

Has anyone else come across this?

For livestream? It's free - is not a subscription based service.

You can go to livestream.com and watch also but you'll need a VPN or DNS unblocker to bypass the NZ geoblock

Not sure I understand what you mean. Livestream is a perfectly legit service. Their platform is used by broadcasters worldwide - it's not a dodgy Eastern European streaming service. But you can stream events from the website or app for free.

So, if its legit, you don't need a VPN to hide your true location. No further questions your Honour

Livestream is legit. It isn't some dodgy site that has spammy ads all over it. The NRL uses livestream.com to stream their games to their international audience.

The NRL restricts broadcasts where they already have agreements in place - so NZ and Aussie for example are geoblocked because of arrangements with Sky and Foxtel. So therefore a VPN is needed.

The defence rests, Your Honor 😊

Guilty as charged!  You are avoiding the agreements you mentioned. I will get me mate Don to get his enemies the CIA to grab you. maybe add you to his ban!

 

Is the feed good? I have a mate that often uses cricinfo for free feeds. I can't imagine what the quality would be like
