How to live stream and watch NRL – Television, Radio and Online
If you want to watch or live stream the 2019 NRL season online, on television or radio you are in luck.
This page is the ultimate guide on how to catch every match of the home-and-away season, and the finals.
With each state having different coverage of the competition, it can get quite confusing at times to keep an eye on your favourite team.
Here is where The Roar comes in. This is our definitive guide as to where you catch the NRL on television, radio, and live streaming online.
Live stream online
The easiest place to catch every NRL game via live stream is Kayo Sports. Kayo lets you stream Foxtel sporting content on your preferred device without the need to subscribe to any of Foxtel’s other TV packages.
Channel Nine acquired some of the digital rights to the NRL last year. That means that you can live stream a number of games for free via 9Now.
During the regular season this will be three games per week – the Thursday night game, late Friday night game, and one Sunday game.
However since Nine shows all of the finals, all of the State of Origin games, and the grand final itself, that means you will be able to stream them free on 9Now as well.
But what about the games that aren’t on Nine? Try the NRL Digital Pass on your phone and on your computer through the official website and app.
With an NRL Digital Pass you can view every match on your phone or tablet. For $3.99 a week, or $99.99 per year, you can view all games on the official site. If you’re a Telstra mobile customer, you might be entitled to the NRL Digital Pass for free. Check your plan for details.
Keep in mind, the NRL live pass will not have rights to the NRL grand final or State of Origin, however, replays of those matches will still be available.
Every other match throughout the season, including the first three weeks of the NRL finals 2019 Live, will still be available, however, matches can no longer be streamed on PC or laptop devices.
Another way to live stream NRL matches is to use Foxtel’s streaming applications. Every game except for the grand final and State of Origin is broadcast on Foxtel, so you can use either Foxtel Now or the Foxtel App.
If you already have Foxtel, then the Foxtel App is the one for you. If not, sign up for Foxtel Now and pick a package including the sports channels.
Foxtel Now also has a 14-day free trial if you want to test it out first.
If you’re based overseas (i.e. outside Australia, New Zealand and the Pacific Islands) you’ll be able to stream all the NRL action online via Watch NRL.
On The Roar will will have live scores and a blog of each match in the rugby league season.
From the State of Origin, to the NRL, to the finals, The Roar will have you covered.
