The discount code "reddit" is still working for monthly renewal, gives you $5usd off. I've used it twice now. Was expecting to be told it wasn't valid the second time. Pays to use paypal, cancel auto renew on yor account.

I subscribed monthly when it was $14.99USD a month and I'm still paying that price.

 

I see it's now $19.99USD a month.  I tried the code for my current monthly subscription and it says it's invalid haha.. Worth a try!

I subscribed when it was US$14.99/m as well (last year) then cancelled my subscription at the end of the All Blacks playing season. Resubscribed a little earlier this year and am paying the US$19.99 - bugger. Will be unsubscribing again when the All Blacks finish up this year and looking around for an alternative next year.

You could contact them on live chat and ask them to stop your auto renewal then once your current month ends re subscribe using the reddit code. If you use paypal you can stop auto payment. As mentioned I've used it 2 months in row so far.

I think for something that costs $NZ 20 (or $nz 25 without discount) a month it is good value personally.
I love the fact I can cast it to any TV that I hook my chromecast up to. I can take it to my Dad's house or round to a mate's TV.

 

When looking next year I suggest to check out ESPN and SlingTV - vaguely recall they did something cheapish ??

^^ Agreed. For me $20 to $25nzd is more than acceptable when last month you got 2 test plus the mid week games and league if you wish

 

Problem with Espn it seems you need to login with  your American internet or cable provider. Im not sure how you'd watch it outside of USA. Slings rugby is espn as well. Anyone managed it?

I am pretty sure that if you have a SlingTV subs you can use that to log into ESPN to watch the rugby as well.

I used this for the first time this month and it worked perfectly.

 

to sign up i had to use hola.org chrome extension to make it look like i was in singapore - and you just keep it on until its started streaming then turn the extension off and it works great.

 

 

 

I have also tried it with expressvpn that i use to get better netflix content and it's great.
