    Nine treats fans with free streaming for all NRL games
    • Nine have obtained full digital rights on the NRL, joining Fox Sports who have been airing every match since last season.





      The usual Thursday, Friday and Sunday games will be broadcasted live on television, while the remaining fixtures can be streamed live or viewed on catch-up television.

      ''The home of rugby league will expand to new heights in 2018 and reach more Australians than ever when Nine claims full digital rights on the NRL,'' Nine stated.

      ''That means live streaming, catch-up, and short-form clips and highlights, coming straight from the broadcast to the digital environment via 9Now, Wide World of Sports.com.au and all of our social media platforms, live and free.''

      The ratings war was at its peak this season after Fox Sports revamped its commentary team by stealing Yvonne Sampson from the free-to-air network who was made the face of their new Fox League channel.

      Nine managed to pinch one back after they announced NRL pundit Peter Sterling will join the network exclusively next season.

      Nine's ace is only a small amount of the population fork out for the pay-TV network and monster ratings from State of Origin and the NRL grand final are only available to them.

    I wonder what Fox thinks about this? Seems too good to be true.

    My understanding is that Nine will only stream their own games and NOT all 8 matches. No material from Nine's own source indicate otherwise and Sportingnews has run away with this here.

    “From next year, Nine’s NRL rights expand to include full live streaming and catch up on Nine’s matches and digital rights across all NRL matches. Peter is a key part of our strategy going forward to create the best rugby league content, distribute it widely across all platforms, for audiences to consume anywhere and anytime," Nine’s Director of Sport Tom Malone said.

    They fooled people with the use of 'full streaming'. The fact is they will be only be streaming the games they broadcast each week (usually 3).

    Yep....otherwise foxtels money they pay would be money down the drain.

    Pretty sure foxtels games are theirs only.
