Generally about two months haha. Another one always pops up though. Best thing to do is search 'super league' set the filters to long videos only and uploaded in the last week only. Super League ones usually stay up, but the NRL ones are a little more dicey.

If you have fibre, I'd recommend getting a VPN and using RugbyPass.com - it has everything league and union and live. It's totally legal, just not available in NZ.
Get a VPN and you should be able to watch the Challenge Cup Games and the weekly Super League show on BBC iplayer as well https://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer

Wigan vs Hull FC (from Wollongong) is on Sky Sport 2 tonight just after midnight. Think there's too much on for it to be live.

Watched the Leeds v Hull- I know the weather was poor but the handling was atrocious.
Found the Hull kick offs interesting, drilling the ball low towards the sidelines- wonder if we will see more sides try this?

aren't the nrl putting out there own streaming service to replace rugby pass this year? or is rugbypass still got the games? the site has all the union stuff on there, but not mentioning nrl...

Watched the Wigan vs Hull FC replay last night. Was a pretty fun game to watch but man Wigan butchered some tries!

Nice to see something different with these English teams coming down rather than the other way around.

Interested to see how they match up with the NRL clubs this Friday/Saturday.

i saw that, $33 AUD a month, eh, maybe. at least can try the free trial and see how it performs.

Let us know how it goes, interested on hearing how reliable it is.

It's a shame that it's not available in NZ as I only subscribe to SKY TV for the NRL games and shows really, so their 12 month deal would save me a lot of money.

Going on holiday for three weeks in April/May so I might get a month's worth so that I don't have to miss the shows or hunt around on a streaming site for the games.

When I was away last year, my SkyGo seemed to work fine when I was running it through mobile data but only sometimes worked when I was connected to WIFI, so will try that again too.

I've ditched Sky - watching RumbleTV on YouTube and I am going to watch the Warriors at the gym, down the pub or on Maori television delayed, plus NRL highlights on Prime.

Will do, if it lets you have multiple devices (like Netflix) watching at the same time could split the cost with another person.

This will be my first year without sky since 2010, been talking it up how I don’t need it, and haven’t missed it at all over the summer, but come march 9th at 9pm it will be tough either hauling my ass out to a pub which isn’t playing union on all the good tvs, or going with a patchy illegal stream which cuts in and out.

Yeah I might give this watchnrl.com trial a go this weekend and see if I can get it streaming here in NZ through a VPN.

so how do you watch the NRL from the UK? is it no longer on sky sports? or premier sports whatever it used to be.
Premier Sports had NRL for the last few years, but Sky have it this season and for a few years. First games up are back to back on 10 March, Warriors at Souths and Dogs v Storm.

I pay for Sky, costs me over £100/month for the full package but I get 10mb broadband connection and free UK phone calls with that. I have something called Sky Q which gives me a second box (main box is hard wired into a satellite dish) that works through my wifi so I can plug it into any TV, gives me about 6TB of storage as well which comes in handy as I watch a lot of box sets

cheers, thats good, as you can get often get a reliable stream of sky sports uk, fox sport au is worse and sky sports nz - no chance! although i see its only certain games per round, not the whole slate.
