Where to watch the Bledisloe Cup online in 2018

Matt Sayer 20 October 2017 NEWS


The Bledisloe Cup will see Australia take on New Zealand this August, and you can watch every match live without leaving your cosy couch.

The long-running showdown between the Australian Wallabies and the New Zealand All Blacks returns for 2018 this August, with the first test slated for Saturday 18 August at ANZ Stadium in Sydney. Despite the All Blacks securing the 2017 trophy by winning the first two tests back to back, the Wallabies will be looking to maintain momentum from their third-test victory and emerge as the 2018 champions.

If flying around Australia to attend the matches in-person is a little out of your budget, here are all the ways to watch the 2018 Bledisloe Cup online:


FOX Sports has broadcast rights to a whole heap of rugby throughout the year, Bledisloe Cup included. If you've got a standard Foxtel subscription and you've signed up for the Sports package, you'll be able to watch Saturday's match through the Foxtel app on Android and Apple mobile devices as well as on the PC or Mac.

Alternatively, you can sign up for the Sports package through Foxtel's on-demand streaming service Foxtel Now and watch the match that way.

Best of all, Foxtel is currently offering a two-week free trial of Foxtel Now with access to all channel packs, sports channels included. So long as you haven't tried Foxtel Now before, you can take advantage of this offer to watch the final match of the Bledisloe Cup online for free.

If you're not a Foxtel subscriber, the best way to watch the Bledisloe Cup online is through Channel Ten's catch-up and on-demand streaming service tenplay. You'll have to sit through the occasional commercial break that Foxtel viewers won't have to, but seeing as it's completely free, that's a small price to pay.
