One downside of RugbyPaas vs MkSky is that you can't live pause or delay start a game.  Correct me if I'm wrong.  So you either watch it live, or you watch it on demand later on, after it's completely finished - and I'm not sure what the delay is after the game until it is available on demand.  


What we found was for games that started at 7:30 pm, we often started watching (uisng MySky) after dinner at say 8:30 pm, which also meant you could fast forward through half time, injury breaks etc.  I don't believe that's possible with RugbyPass.  Although once again I'm conflicted over whether that functionality is worth the extra cost ($90/month) for Sky. 




I pretty sure you can watch it delayed, you just drag the play time indicator to the start when you start watching and I'm sure you can pause as well. I don't have an active subscription at the moment to confirm that. I generally start subscribing at the start of ABs season/ end of super 15. More interested in ABs and Mitre 10 cup than super 15.

What setup steps did you use to get Foxtel Now setup and working in NZ?



To get Foxtel Now, you need to have an Australian credit card. That's going to be your biggest obstacle if you don't have one. I still have my debit Mastercard from my Australian back. For the Chromecast, I have a wifi VPN off my router that routes all traffic via Australia (I use PIA, but it should work with any VPN provider with an Australian exit node). That way I can use all the Australian TV apps (7plus, 9now, ABC iView, SBSoD, Foxtel Now) on my mobile and stream them on my Chromecast. I have a second Chromecast on the tv that connects to my main wifi for the NZ streaming services (mainly TVNZoD and Fan Pass).
