    The nrl.com link for game highlights and any video footage at all on that site goes directly to NRL.TV which i'm unable to view because i'm in NZ. (Loved it last year when you could use the full game replay).
    As of this season i've been unable to watch any highlights of games at all, which is absolutely ridiculous and seems to me to be a giant backwards step for growth of the game.

    It'd be nice to be able to simply view some delayed footage or highlights of games without paying a subscription or denied access because of where you live.


    So if anyone knows any sites that show highlights of previous games that would be sweet.

    Cheers.

    Nope. Bigpond is part of nrl.tv. "Due to territory licensing restrictions, NRL is unable to broadcast these events in your territory"

    :lol: Hopeless coverage.

    FOX Sports NRL site has heaps of good stuff. Highlights of games, highlights of NRL footy shows (i.e., the Back Page, NRL on FOX, etc), interviews throughout the week, and press conferences after the game.

    Here's the link: http://www.foxsports.com.au/league

    I don't know where to get full games online, sorry.

    Thanks for your help mate, but same old story.

    "Sorry, we're unable to offer this video to users in your region".



    Ffs... you'd think they didn't want league fans in NZ at all! Is it any wonder people stream league illegally online these days?

    Really?! Damn, sorry I couldn't help.

    Mate as fickle as it sounds, maybe write a letter or send an email to the NRL letting them know your disappointment and asking for an explanation, they might throw you something.

    This has got me worried, I have to travel later this year and was looking forward to keeping in contact with the Dragons progress week in week out.

    Have you tried watching the videos on each individuals clubs website?? Maybe the Warriors website will let you see something??

    Warriors show highlights all good, but only their games and club reports etc (But in rubbish quality). The rest of the other teams are mainly Bigpond which has some issue with broadcasting in NZ. I think I might send an Email, actually.



    The only way I can watch a full game is if I either:

    A - fork out ridiculous money for a SKY subscription (think Foxtel)
    B - go down to my local pub and watch it.
    C- Look around the internet for some poor quality stream.
    D- League unlimited live commentary stream.

    Fair enough if I have to pay to watch league each week, it is what it is... but I shouldn't have to pay, or be restricted to watch highlights of a game.

    I love Basketball, it's probably my fave sport. I purchased an online account for a one of fee of $65.00 US for the whole season and playoffs of ANY game and ALL games in the most amazing HD quality. No issues at all....

    I see. Very true that you shouldn't have to pay to watch match highlights. Mention your basketball subscription in the email you send the NRL mate.

    What link are you using? I use this one for the highlights & full game replays and it's working fine for me.

    Yeah that's the one. It automatically redirects to nrl.tv and I can't watch it. Last year that was all good, but i think it's since nrl.tv has come on the scene...I know another mate of mine in Auckland that's been having the same problem this year.

    Yeah, you're right.... I managed to bring up the game analyser but it says "Only available to users in Australia and NZ" That's pretty obvious.
    But i've tried different browsers, reset routers etc....? It's probably something to do with my computer location or software being seen by the server as outside Aus/NZ.

    Cheers for the help, you guys have narrowed it down a bit.

    I'm in England and have the same problem. If you google proxy servers you'll find a way to get around territory restrictions.

    yep might have to try proxy servers

    NRL's youtube page also shows round game highlights but they are often delayed by 2 weeks
