With American Football so popular in the United States, you might think that not many people would watch Rugby in the country. On the contrary, it has quite the fan following. So, for all the Rugby fans currently living in the US, here is a guide on how you can stream the Rugby World Cup 2019 and watch your national team play some incredible rugby.
How to Watch Rugby World Cup 2019 in the US
Since Rugby is not as popular as American Football in the United States, most cable TV channels are going to be covering the NFL event. As a result, rugby fans in the US might have to rely on other streaming platforms if they wish to not miss out on the 2019 Rugby World Cup live. These streaming platforms include the following:
- NBC Sports
US residents can stream the entire 2019 Rugby World Cup on NBC Sports. To do so, all they have to do is to go to the official website and subscribe to the NBC Sports Gold Rugby World Cup Pass. With the help of this pass, users will be able to access and stream all the 48 Rugby World Cup matches live and on-demand. The basic Rugby World Cup Pass costs $199.99. The premium version, which includes the season pass, will cost you $229.99.
- Sling TV
SlingTV is one of the best cord-cutting options available for people living in the US. Interested fans can opt for either Sling TV Blue ($25) or Sling TV Orange ($25). Both of these plans include channels which are going to broadcast the entire tournament live and online.
- YouTube TV
You might think YouTube is only for watching music videos or vlogs from your favorite YouTubers, but there’s more you can do here. What most of you don’t know is that YouTube offers a subscription plan which allows you to stream all of your favorite channels live. This service goes by the name of Youtube TV. It costs $49.99 and comes packed with a ton of channels including ones through which you can stream your favorite Rugby World Cup 2019 matches.
Watch Rugby World Cup in the US For Free
With YouTube TV, Sling TV, and NBC Sports offering streaming platforms for viewers living in the US, streaming the matches is not going to be a problem. However, since most of these services are quite expensive, especially the NBC Pass, some fans might be interested in a cheaper option.
Well, if that is the case, then we might be of some help to you. Viewers can opt for watching the Rugby World Cup matches on ITV which will broadcast the entire tournament for free. However, there is a catch. ITV is only available in the UK.
So, to watch the 2019 Rugby World Cup on ITV, you will have to subscribe to PureVPN. The 2-year plan starts at only $3.33 per month which is nothing compared to the NBC pass which costs $199.99. Quite a bargain, isn’t it? To get started, follow the steps below:
- Subscribe to PureVPN
- Download and install on your preferred stream device
- Log in with your Username and Password
- Select Stream mode and choose ITV from Popular Website
