beenz:I think most of us know what a VPN is and how to use it.
However my post is not related to this and as the above quote says why ruin the experience.

Prefer the post was kept on topic.


to be clear, my comments were on the possibilities of issues with opting for a VPN rather than content served from your RSP's core.




In other words, i recommend buying the $60 package from Spark sports, not because of my affiliation with them, but because you cut down on the risks of any issues streaming the actual content.

Does anyone know whether the Spark Streams will have ads during the games?



I expect while the game is going they will have no ads. But I recall during RWC 2011 and 2015 (much to everyone's annoyance), they had 90 seconds (?) after the anthems (and before kickoff) for the TV channels to get that one last ad in before the game started. If that happens again, I expect Spark Sport would use it that purpose.

FYI - Kayo Sports, 3 months free when you sign up for a bet easy account (no credit card needed, just create an account which is free).


You do need a credit card for the Kayo account, also a Aussie phone number  to verify your account. 


Those lucky Aussies getting the RWC for free.
