$4.99usd seem helluva cheap for what espn has on offer. Generally for that sort of $'s sports is an addon  like on Sling.

Looks promising. Good thing the US considers Rugby a throwaway sport. Sounds like any major events won't get streamed.

 


I wonder if it is only live streams. I quite like the Rugbypass ability to catch a game I missed the next day. 
I also really value the chromecast service on Rugbypass.

 


However having a range of sports to chose from may make up for that.

Depends on the content. I had a look at ESPN the other day for super bowl and it didn’t have it. Thought they have a few channels now. And hopefully you get all of them.

Superbowl LII was on NBC in the US.  It rotates around the major networks under agreement.  So I dont think it would turn up on ESPN unless it was an ABC broadcast with simulcast. 

 

It was available on ESPN International and also broadcast on Duke in NZ (in HD for Freeview terrestrial reception).  Last year it was on One and Duke but this year just Duke.

Yeah I watched it on nbc. But again highlights the content provision.
