Streaming services

Post by kUD » Tue Nov 03, 2020 8:04 am

I just sat down this evening after a sh!t of a day to watch the Ulster /Cardiff match, and have found that rugbypass.com now don't have the rights to any European rugby.... Pro14, English prem, T14, HEC, 6N and Autumn cup, all gone.
I suspect it's something to do with them getting bought by Sky NZ recently.
It was a great subscription service previously, as I got the above plus Super Rugby, NPC and Rugby Championship all for $20us/month plus a vpn.

So now I'm on the hunt for something equivalent. Happy to live without English and French domestic rugby, but really keen on finding one service with the rest rather than having to subscribe to multiple services.

Can anyone give me suggestions please?

Thanks.
Hows the service on that site? From an initial glance from my cellphone it just seems to take me to a new tab of adverts every time I click on something.

I also looked at subscribing to espn+ in the US. It appears to have an the pro14 for $6us/mo, but hung when I went to try and pay, and their mobile app requires location to be on, which trumps the vpn?

I'm hearing amazon has rights did Autumn nations cup, ask that'll be another different platform to have to look at

Guys we support a professional rugby team in a professional sport. The players are reliant on their wages being paid by ticket sales and tv income. So will you please stop scouring the world for cheap deals saving you a few quid. Pay your "dues"and get on with it.
If this trend continues the players will be shopping in TKMax and having their haircuts in barbers instead of hairdressers.I
Come to think of it, where are they getting their hair "done"?

I'm not looking for free, I'm happy to pay a subscription.
The challenge I have is that in New Zealand where I live, Sky Sports, who have the broadcast rights don't show the games I want to see.
I used to subscribe to their rugby channel, and they would show 3 Pro12 games each week. Most weeks the Ulster game was on, so I could watch the Friday night game live on my Saturday morning. Then the English premiership started Friday games and the Pro12 got relegated to showing the matches on a Tuesday.... Try staying off the Internet to avoid seeing the result for that length of time.

Rugbypass.com solved all that, but now they've lost the rights, hence my request for info on other reputable streaming services.

Rugby should be free to air. These new commercial broadcasters munching up previously free sports are just playing on supporters' loyalty while at the same time restricting access for those who, for whatever reason, do not subscribe to their particular platform. Selling out to the commercials has been an exercise in short term rank stupidity that has simply limited public exposure.
So it's not about "cheap deals saving ... a few quid". It's about a broader moral position and not kowtowing to commercialism.

What's wrong with shopping at TKMaxx?

Tkmaxx,.....for ordinary people like us, nothing wrong with it.
For professional sponsored designer gear UR players.............??????

And Brother Snipe. I am sorry but 1917 has been and gone. Not selling out to commercialsim? What planet are you on.
Do you have a business plan which pays players and allows free to air coverage?

Did well to keep it on the BBC for as long as they did.

The crowds were returning nicely before bloody Covid. All Ulster can do for now is keep winning.
