Rugby World Cup on TV

Postby johnincrete » Sun Aug 25, 2019 8:19 am

It seems that Sky is the only TV service in UK to show the forthcoming world cup. It may well be that one of the BBC or ITV channels will show "highlights" late at night but I don't find these programmes satisfactory particularly the long punditry. Is Sky available here?

Yes through an IPTV provider

ITV have exclusive rights to show the World Cup Rugby. Matches will be live on either ITV 1 or ITV 4

Ah, we can get that through the FilmOn internet service. They claim to be legal, and that's good enough for us ;)

Or, if it's feasible, why not support a local bar or café to watch it? Lots of modern bars now have satellite TV where most channels are shown. Ask around. The Sports Bar in Agios Nikolaos will be the place for me and always attracts a good rugby following.
