I have XL package and cheers for this Futtocks as I was just about to pay for the Prem Sport online app and hook it up to TV through laptop. Saved a few quid.

Keep watching the skies! Or your channel guide, if that doesn't work.

 

I don't have Sky or Virgin, so I don't know the technicalities.

Read that this would mean all the WC games being accessible to an additional 4m viewers!

Grrrrr, I only just signed up for the internet service yesterday, and now it looks like I'll get it on telly for free anyway. Typical!

Really good news. Premier Sports have said that their business model is based on bringing sports to a dedicated audience, who are already fans of the sport, so their subscription service attracts people like me.

Having the World Cup free to Virgin subscribers will open some of the games not involving England up to a wider audience.

We seem to have pretty good coverage of the tournament on the telly and radio set up.

Tomorrow morning at 10:30 am until 12:30 they are showing "History of Rugby League". That is then followed by their World Cup coverage.

I believe my parents have the M package so hopefully it will be on there too as that's where I'm basing myself for most of the RLWC.

 

They never record to that box either so I should be able to keep matches on there indefinately!

Xmas has most definitely come early this year, I have VM's M package and Premier Sports is on there.
