URC TV is now live and it’s the best way to keep up with all United Rugby Championship content this season!
URC TV will be the ultimate single destination for fans outside of the UK to watch all 151 games when and where they want, with every minute of every URC game live and on-demand.
A free service showing a range of highlights, archive matches and snackable videos, will be available in all countries including the UK and South Africa (fans in these countries can watch all games live on Premier Sports and Super Sport respectively).
The introduction of South Africa’s four elite teams to the URC has created a challenge unlike any other rugby as two hemispheres collide as the best of Ireland, Italy, Scotland and Wales stand their ground against the best of South Africa.
URC TV promises to give rugby fans access to world-class, year-round content and to follow all the action of their favourite team. The streaming service is will be easily accessible across multiple devices with mobile apps launching soon after the tournament starts.
Martin Anayi, chief executive of URC, said: “In addition to RTÉ strength in TV it has experience of streaming big sporting events globally and is evidence of a broadcaster that can adapt to market demands and provide a very creative offering for rights holders."
Dee Forbes, RTÉ Director General said: "We are delighted to collaborate with URC on the launch of this innovative new global OTT service to ensure fans across the world don’t miss a moment of URC action”.
