The Premier Sports website has a handy table to confirm which sports, including a separate column for the RLWC 2013, will be broadcast in each country. The one issue the table confirms is that the RLWC will not be broadcast via Premier Player in the USA (refer to the link below and the link on the webpage "for a full list of what sports are available in your country")
So, the countries it's not available in are:
Libyan Arab Jamahiriya
Syrian Arab Republic
Australia and NZ have their own deals, which I assume covers Fiji and PNG. I also expect France has a deal with BeIn Sport (has that been confirmed?). This leaves the groups of North America, Indian subcontinent, MENA (not sure if India counts as MENA)
There's not much interest in RL in the subcontinent that I'm aware of, but there's a decent amount of support in North America and MENA that I would hope that something is sorted out. Possibly Al Jazeera in MENA as they run BeIn Sports in France
