How much does this cost? Their site doesn't seem to mention any pricing (when logged out) except a monthly price of $0.99, which I suspect is a first-month-only price.

It works out around $120 usd a year, so $15 nzd a month after discount.

 

Yeah the link is a bit strange. Don't use link go direct to their site and try to watch a game they will ask you to sign in or sign up. Needless to say you'll need vpn/dns service.

Not worth it since they lost rights to the NRL.

Casting from my mobile direct to any chromecast connected TV* is a nice to have feature. Means I can easily go to a friends house or on holiday and watch a game.

 

*does require a free DNS changing APP and a DNS service.

Interesting article on RugbyPass c/- @chriskeall  https://www.nzherald.co.nz/technology/news/article.cfm?c_id=5&objectid=12191427

 

 

 

Offering over 23 countries in Asia - and breaking even at 20,000 customers.  Almost 3 years of hard graft to get to 20,000 customers despite being the exclusive digital rights holder and OTT broadcaster for live rugby, including Super Rugby, The Rugby Championship & Autumn Internationals, Six Nations, Aviva Premiership, European Champions Cup, Pro14, Top14, Mitre 10 Cup and much more.   I wonder if CSM knew it would take so long?

 

Interestingly "there are only two countries where broadcasters or streaming services will pay big bucks for rugby as the must-have sport — New Zealand and South Africa".   And "Our biggest driver of audience is in fact the Six Nations because there are more English fans for rugby in the world than anyone else."

 

 

 

Looking for cash to expand to Europe (where I'm sure Six Nations is much more lucrative) - but got to wonder, why doesnt Discovery chip in more money to expand?  Discovery has a sports footprint already in Europe, RugbyPass has the rugby smarts.... the capital should flow, shouldnt it?

NRL isn't Rugby. It's not Rugby if there is no breakdown :)

Must've had at least a suspicion. In broad terms, rugby is hardly known about in Asian countries. Soccer on the other hand, is yuuuge.

True - but would have been banking on enough ex-pats living in those countries that are underserved rugby by the existing broadcasters to want to subscribe for a paltry $15/mth.  Rights costs would have been a pittance - if rights costs were c50% of revenue then 23 countries for [guessing] $2m makes you think if we can get 10k EPL subs in NZ then getting 20k rugby fans in all of Asia.......
