Had WatchNRL but now its not working, I dont know what Ive done.

 

So I tried to create a new account and it said my credit card is a NZ one.

 

Is there any way to create new accounts so I can watch the Warriors for free?

if its free its likely illegal as the NRL sells its broadcasting rights so those who buy it will be selling it to customers

Know someone with Sky and has Sports pack ? Ask to borrow their SkyGo login - they might not even know they have it.

I had sky but moved out of the place that had it. I never used the sky go, flap i wish i knew it now. Parted on bad terms (their behalf).

 

When I say free, I mean legit but can be accessed for free with a trial etc.

 

None of the sky or fox options are that cheap for 1 game a week. Fox is if i had time to watch all the games at $33 a month.

 

What the net needs is pay per view sport, $5 a game. Or a netflix like service, $15 a month, would probably get every sports viewer if you had the rights to rugby, nrl, soccer, basketball, nfl, nba, MLB, etc. oh wait sky could do that but they are still stuck in 20th century pricing. no wonder Dunedin branch went under.

I was going to try nrl go, but its only on mobile.

 

Surely there is a fairly legit way to watch it? Fox go wont accept credit cards outside Aus.

 

Ive asked a mate if I can pay him $10 a week to chip in for his sky if I can use the sky go on the weekends.

 

Im getting desperate. But im not paying Skys extortionate pricing to watch 90 minutes of sport a week.

Well Prime carries the game FTA - but tonights game is at 1130pm so 4 hours delayed.  

 

Fanpass at $55/mth (a 6 month contract will see you out thru to the GF) would be the equiv of $14/week (or $14/game) which is not that much different than wanting to pay a mate $10/game to freeload on his SkyGo.

 

Personally I think if you are only watching 1 game a week then you're missing out on some outstanding action in the other games - and some tries that make the other code look super ordinary.

That would certainly boost subscribers to unheard of levels. The previous record was $20 for everything. 

 

 

 

On a more serious note, you can get Sky satellite with sport for $55. FTA, Basic and all sport channels. No HD and no recording but thats darn cheap.

I do watch all games post match. But its hard to ignore the score on my NRL sub.

 

Its only a temporary thing though.

 

But, it does make me think, as a package sky isnt so bad, although I hate ads, but if you just want the NRL there are no options outside the foxtel offer which isnt too pad at $33 a month when I think about it. But the quality is not so good.

 

The dodgy links arent worth it, half the time they dont work and always setting off the anti virus alarms.

Foxtel Now (with a Chromecast) is HD quality, and its significantly better than the quality of Fan Pass (which is also HD, but noticeable lower quality, maybe a lower bit rate?)

Ouch - Warriors NSW side down against the NSWRL Cup table toppers at halftime..  Expected us to rise to the occasion. 

 

Still looks good onscreen though.

For the games that are screened on Nine (Round 8 and 17, plus the finals), using a VPN plus the 9Now app or website will work. Video quality is decidedly average at best.

I use PIA and have no issues with any Aussie content being geo-blocked, except for Netflix.
