Are we getting the Aus-NZ test televised over here?

Not really seen anything in the listings for this one. If anyone could shed some light on this please it would be much appreciated. Autumn Internationals are my favourite time of the year.

Strange one this as I would've assumed that Sky had the rights as they showed the ANZAC game in May, but appear to be choosing not to show this one. Someone did ask on the Premier Sport Twitter page, but they've said they're not showing it, hence why I assume Sky have the rights. Even if they couldn't show it live (not sure what Sky have got on on Saturday), they could at least show it later on.

Sky are showing the IRB Sevens tournament, live from Gold Coast, maybe they couldn't get 2 live feeds from Australia at the same time (Or, more likely, they didn't want to step on Unions toes this early in the season)

I could understand that not covering the home International series would save them a bob or two, but I doubt not showing a match from Oz would reap many savings. However, it is more convincing than the Rugby Union theories...

it would have cost them next to nothing, the match is also already being up linked via either cable or satellite as it is live in the middle east.

since the premier league deal, sky have signed deals such as...

La Liga

British Lions

Heineken Cup

Australia cricket

India cricket

South Africa cricket

NFL

The only cost would have been in having Brian Carney, Shaun McRae and Jon Wells in the studio. The actual match would've been in the same rights package as the NRL GF and the May Anzac Test. Presumably Sky feel they can get more viewers and hence more advertisers from repeating the previous nights Darts on SS4, or whatever.
