The NRL season is here and you’ll need to know where you can watch every rugby league game in Australia.
There are multiple ways to keep up-to-date with the NRL games, you can live stream, watch on TV, or listen in on the radio. We look at the best places to watch and listen to the 2022 NRL regular season playoff fixtures.
How to live stream NRL
The best place to access NRL live streaming is Kayo. It’s the ultimate sports live streaming service, which provides customers with every NRL game live and on-demand, and the pricing is very affordable.
A live streaming service customised for Australians, Kayo is your chance to live stream all NRL games without needing to search around for a trusted service. It only requires a monthly payment and you’re set to watch all the sport you wish.
Channel Nine has some digital rights to NRL games, which means you can live stream certain games via the 9Now app. It’s good for those not wanting to spend much money on live streaming, and most of the big games are featured each week.
Alternatively, you can watch every NRL game at NRL Digital Pass. It has every game streamed for desktop, Android, and iOS users. However, it is the more expensive option compared to the likes of Kayo. It costs around $99 for a yearly subscription, but all games are played in high definition and it’s a great service overall.
Please note: NRL Pass will not livestream the NRL Grand Final or any of the State of Origin games.
How to watch NRL on TV
If you’re living in Australia, you can watch NRL games on Fox and Channel Nine. There are typically eight games scheduled each week, three of which are shown by Channel Nine and the rest are broadcast by Fox.
Channel Nine has the rights to Thursday Night Football and the second Friday night game. They also show the Sunday afternoon game, which typically involves Sydney-based teams.
Fans living in Tasmania, Victoria, South Australia, and Western Australia can get coverage via GEM. Always check your local guides for viewing times.
New Zealand NRL fans have access to every game live via Sky Sport NZ. All NRL games are live, but a Sky Sports subscription is needed and it usually costs around $25 a month.
How to listen to NRL on the radio
It’s great to watch the NRL, but if radio is your best option, here are some options.
Downloading the NRL app is a good way to listen to all the games. It’s available at the App Store or Google Play and it lets you choose your favourite broadcaster before every game.
Many of Australia’s top sport radio stations broadcast live commentary of NRL games, so check with your local station for dates and times.
NRL Live Scores
Sometimes we’re not in the position to watch or listen to the NRL, so our best option is to follow the live scoring updates.
Luckily, there are many websites with live scoring available. The best option is to go through NRL.com.au. They have real-time scores, statistics, and everything else you need to know about the game.
Don’t miss a thing with NRL live scoring, or any other forms of keeping up to date with your favourite rugby league team in the 2022 NRL season.
