Announced another wee bit today.
Weekend pass or match by match.

Available everywhere except UK and RSA.
Not sure what happened the premier sport plans for RoI.
Italy has got some FTA coverage apparently, but URC TV may cover the gaps.
Can I come out from behind the sofa yet?

Also I see BBC Wales have dropped Phil Steele as pitch-side interviewer. Much as I dislike mics being stuffed in people's faces when they clearly have better things to be doing. I liked Steele. his questions were more insightful than the usual 'how do feel about being hammered' shîte. He understands the game well and questions accordingly. Like the late great Ray Gravell, people seemed more prepared to take time to engage with him, not just fulfill their contractual obligations. I'm sure BBCw have someone equally capable lined up to take over :o

URC TV status in Italy is yet to be confirmed.

Reading posts today, it was 120 Euros for all games, 100 Euros for all "mini conference" i.e. games involving all Irish teams and weekend pass 20 Euros.

agree with Neill above, occasionally had issues with the stream and I have fibre? but majority of games were fine, and could easily be watched via the smart tv internet browser. And could watch all the replays etc.

Cheers.
Not keen to go down the Sky route. But streaming may be a bit much for my 4g.

Maybe just make do you with whats on FTA and go to the pub for anything else i want to see.
