How to watch a State of Origin live stream in Australia

It's time for Game 3 of the 2019 State of Origin series Here's your complete live stream State of Origin online and TV guide.

Update: Matt Gillett has been a late withdrawal from State of Origin Game 3, with his spot taken by 18th man and QLD rookie, Ethan Lowe. Dylan Napa has come into the squad as 18th man.

State against state, mate against mate. With so many big personalities retiring from the State of Origin arena over the last few years, it feels like a fresh battle for supremacy in the greatest rugby league game of them all. The 2019 State of Origin series is a bit different to what we have seen in previous years. The first game is up at Suncorp Stadium on June 5, with the middle game at Optus Stadium in Perth on June 23, before a possible series decider heads to ANZ Stadium in Sydney on July 10.

Will the Queensland Maroons win a twelfth series from the last 14 on offer, or can the New South Wales Blues start their own dynasty and clinch back-to-back series wins for the first time in 14 years? We're down to the decider, with an in-form NSW side coming off a big win, facing a QLD side playing to restore pride. Jump on a State of Origin live stream and find out!

How to watch a State of Origin stream

Watch State of Origin on TV

The next best thing to actually being there is catching the games live on TV or online. In Australia, the live broadcast of the State of Origin is exclusive to free-to-air TV, so you can watch all three of the 2019 State of Origin games live on Nine Network.

State of Origin live stream to your PC or Smartphone:

You will also be able to live stream the 2019 State of Origin broadcast through the 9Now app, which is the Channel 9 network’s catch-up service. It’s free as long as you are willing to sign-up for an account. And you can live stream State of Origin to your PC, Mac or smartphone (iOS and Android) via 9Now. Just make sure you have it downloaded and ready to go before State of Origin kick off time. Despite knowing the State of Origin 2019 dates for months, the app wasn't prepared for Game 1 and didn't work for a lot of people.

    But will the State of Origin game in Melbourne, be broadcast ‘live’ and ‘Free to Air’ anywhere other than in NSW and QLD?
    Typically, Victoria doesn’t get any live NRL by channel Nine.
    Like previous years, there is no point moving game 1 to the MCG and then not broadcasting live to that state.

      Would the channel 9 cameras on 9 now include commentators? And would you be able to watch a full match replay from the 4 camera angles on 9now?
