All 48 Rugby World Cup matches will be available online via Universal Sports Network’s WatchRWC2015. The service is not dissimilar to that Universal Sports provided for the 2011 World Cup, but it will be available on more devices this time around.
Fans can purchase the full tournament package for $199.99 or individual matches for $27.95 each, and television pay-per-view will be available as it was in 2011. The streaming service will be available on a number of devices, as well as a few apps, including iOS and Android tablets and Roku.
“Universal Sports Network will offer more access points to watch the Rugby World Cup in the United States than ever before,” said Scott Brown, President of Universal Sports Network. “This new over-the-top product enables us to deliver one of the biggest sporting events in the world across multiple platforms allowing fans to follow every minute of the action from England.”
In addition to the online offering, Universal Sports and NBC will broadcast nine matches. NBC will carry a semifinal and the final, and Universal Sports will carry all of the USA’s pool matches, both semifinals, the third-place match and the tournament opener of Fiji versus England.
