Wonder which English match they'll cover each round? Possibly one the pay channels are least interested in.

So is it one game out of each pool each round or one game per round ?

One game per round for Channel 4 and TV3 each and the other 8 on BT I presume. Full article was on the Torygraph site which has a paywall.

Fantastic News for USA fans, NBC are alleged to be going to broadcast every SDC game.

So what I hear you ask, well I am pleased to tell you my magic box in Spain gets several US channels including NBC :cheers: :cheers: :cheers:
TV3 have secured a similar rights agreement for free-to-air coverage in the Republic of Ireland and the Champions Cup will extend its reach across the USA following the announcement that NBC Sports will broadcast every Champions Cup match starting from next season.
Now I wonder will they be covering the Parker Pen so I can see Ulster? :lol: :lol: :lol:
