The next four live Super League fixtures to be broadcast on Channel 4

CHANNEL 4 has been one of the biggest positives to come out of rugby league since their broadcasting of Super League began last season.

With a two-year deal signed for ten matches per season, it was uncertain how the television broadcaster would be received by rugby league fans in the UK.

However, it’s fair to say that Channel 4 was welcomed with open arms in 2022 and the same can be said so far in 2023 with some staggering viewing figures last weekend.

The World Club Challenge had an average audience of 226,000 with a peak of 322,000 before an average of 379,000 tuned in to watch Hull and Wigan with a 502,000 peak. That equated to a 5.2% audience share.

Moving forward, what fixtures have so far been confirmed to be broadcast on Channel 4?
