I only care about the NZ games. On delays is fine but ill be searching out the international satellite feeds. Ill try and make a .ts from the 8K and 4k feed for sharing on here.

 

Of course aussie channel 10 also has it via streaming. So that is another legit option

 

Channel Ten will broadcast all four Wallabies group stage matches live, while they’ll also broadcast two quarter-finals, the semi-finals, the third-place play-off, and the final.

TVNZ or the pub for the semis & final
TVNZ, Pub, ITV & Channel Ten for the Pools & Quarters

My eyes are old and cant tell the difference on my telly, so not overly interested in HD etc

I’m pretty sure it’s not broadcast on rugby pass so will use ITV hub on ATV instead.

Free to Air. If it was on Sky I'd watch it due to the fact of having Sky Sport but I'm not going to the effort (and cost) of getting Spark Sport as I don't care enough about Rugby.

clevedon:

Don't know yet, I'll be on the road in the USA for more than the first half of the tournament. NBC Sports want $49 per game and up to $475 for the full streaming package, it's a lot to shell out either way I look at it.


And my flight to LA departs at exactly the same time as the AB's kickoff against SA :(



YouTube TV is I think $50 a month and it’s been advertised to be on NBC Sports.

It may also be on ESPN ,and ESPN plus is $5 dollars a month

Thanks. YouTube TV have a free trial but you have to be in the USA to use it, I'll probably try that when I get there.

 

ESPN hasn't got it unfortunately, only NBC in the States.

I think I will be using some dodgy stream from somewhere, purely because Spark seem too lazy to support "old" 2018 LG TV's. Chromecast is a poor substitute for native apps, and I will be buggered if I'm paying for that.

I've got Spark Sport Rugby Pass and Kayo. I'll give Rugby Pass a go and if it's good, that's what I'll use, but if not, I'll be seeking a refund and using Kayo which has a well-proven record. 


 


I thought refunds from Spark Sport were only available before the tournament started.

I believe Rugby NZ made a huge mistake granting rights to Spark who are making a dog's breakfast of it. This is the first RWC I will not be watching. I gave away my Spark RWC pass.

You won't watch it all all? The dogs breakfast was the frame rate issue. Prior to that, F1 was better than Sky, Same good motion, better sharpness. The frame rate issue was set back to 50/60 yesterday, F1 rocked from what I read. Too busy, haven't watch any of it yet, will do shortly. Thats the big issue, its over.
