NZR+ Brings Live Test Rugby to Fans Worldwide in July

All BlacksJuly 2, 2024

For the first time ever, NZR+ will stream live Test rugby directly into territories that traditionally don't receive a live broadcast.

This groundbreaking initiative in partnership with SANZAAR provides fans in markets where no broadcast deal exists access to top-tier rugby matches without any cost.

A Historic First for NZR+ with the All Blacks on show

July marks a historic milestone as NZR+ broadcasts its first-ever live Test match. The highly anticipated weekend will feature a series of thrilling clashes, starting with the All Blacks taking on England at 7:05 PM NZT on Saturday 6 July. This monumental event is part of the SANZAAR TV portal and highlights NZR+'s commitment to bringing the best of rugby to a global audience.

South Africa v Ireland: Massive Clash in Pretoria

In addition to the All Blacks v England match, fans can also look forward to a massive showdown in Pretoria. The World Champion Springboks will face off against the number two ranked Ireland at 5:00 PM local time on Saturday. This match is particularly significant for European rugby fans, as the timing makes it easily watchable across the continent including the large South African expat community in the Netherlands.

A Weekend Packed with Test Match Action

This weekend promises to be a rugby fan's dream, featuring four live Test matches. The lineup includes:

All Blacks v England at 7.05pm - NZT, Saturday 6 July
Australia v Wales at 7.45pm - AET, Saturday 6 July
South Africa v Ireland at 5:00pm SAST, Saturday 6 July
