The start of the Super Rugby season is little over three weeks away, and rugby fans can now sign up to the platform which will be showing every game.
After Rugby Australia’s much-publicised new broadcast deal saw the organisation end its long-running partnership with Fox Sports, all Super Rugby matches, Wallabies Tests, Shute Shield and Hospital Cup, Currie Cup and more will be shown live and on-demand on Stan under the Stan Sport add-on.
The platform will also feature an “extensive library of classic Wallabies and Super Rugby matches”.
While it’s still too early to actually watch anything on Stan Sport, and there’s no official launch date yet, subscriptions to the streaming service are now available to “pre-activate”, and viewers who do so now will be given a 30-day free trial before the $10 per month subscription fee kicks in.
You can sign up to Stan Sport here, just keep in mind you’ll need a regular Stan subscription before being able to add on the sport plan.
In addition to rugby, Stan Sport will also show two tennis majors – Wimbledon and the French Open – and are expected to attempt to add to their list of offerings.
While the platform is the only place to watch every single Super Rugby match this year, you will still be able to watch some of the competition on free-to-air TV, with the Nine Network to broadcast one match per round, as well as Wallabies Tests and some Sydney and Brisbane club rugby.
