Where to watch the Rugby Championship in Australia

Posted: 7 March 2018 1:21 pm News

The seventh installment of the Rugby Championship will start in August and fans will be able to stream all the action online without breaking the bank.

The Rugby Championship is an international rugby union competition held between Argentina, Australia, New Zealand and South Africa. Before Argentina joined in 2012 it was known as the Tri Nations.

The All Blacks have won the tournament for the last two consecutive years but Aussie fans are looking forward to the next championship, hoping the Wallabies will surpass New Zealand this time around. Last year was especially painful for Australia, with the Wallabies drawing with South Africa twice.

Australia’s last championship victory was back in 2015. Will the Wallabies manage to grab another win in 2018? Fans need to tune in throughout August and September to find out.

How to stream the Rugby Championship

The Rugby Championship kicks off on 18 August when the Wallabies face off with the All Blacks in Sydney. Wallabies' games will be broadcast on Network Ten, so you can watch for free or stream their matches online with TenPlay.

However if you want to be able to follow all the teams in the Rugby Championship, your only option is Fox Sports. Foxtel will broadcast all the games live, and fans can also stay on top of the action via the Internet with the Foxtel app. Access to the app is included with your subscription.

If you don’t have Foxtel, you can still watch the Rugby Championship with Foxtel Now. The streaming service offers the Sport Pack, which includes all of Foxtel’s sport channels. However, this is a Premium Pack, which means you can only add it to your subscription if you already have a Starter Pack.

Starter Packs cost from $10/month, and you can pick between Lifestyle, Drama, Kids, Pop and Docos. The Sport Pack is $29/month, so to watch the championship with Foxtel Now you will pay a minimum of $39/month. A 10-day free trial is available. Foxtel Now is available on a variety of devices, including computers, mobile devices, PS4, Chromecast/Airplay, Telstra TV and the Foxtel Now Box.
