For first time sanzaarrugby.tv will live-stream Super Rugby Pacific matches to territories that do not have rights holder broadcasters in place.
The new 12-team Super Rugby Pacific tournament will be viewed by rugby fans all over the world following the launch of sanzaarrugby.tv that will stream the tournament into markets that do not have an existing rights-holding TV broadcaster.
The new platform will offer a 91-match season pass for rugby fans to view matches live or watch on-demand content. Included in the pass is access to past Super Rugby and The Rugby Championship matches. A season pass offering for The Rugby Championship 2022 will be available at a later date.
This is exciting news for rugby fans in markets such as Middle East and parts of Europe without rights holder broadcasters.
SANZAR CEO Brendan Morris stated, “The launch of sanzaarrugby.tv is the latest evolution of our archive portal that now will not only serve as a warehouse for all our historical broadcast footage but also provide us the opportunity to broadcast live to fans around the world who otherwise would not be able to view the tournament.”
“Our existing rights holding broadcasters do a wonderful job in broadcasting super rugby to our fans in a multitude of markets but this will be the first time that we will be able to truly deliver global coverage.”
“Super Rugby Pacific is one of the world’s best tournament s and it is a big step forward for us to be able to broadcast the tournament to the massive amounts of fans in current ‘dark’ markets such as Middle East and parts of Europe,” added Morris.
