Premiership Rugby Launches Match Streaming Service: PRTV Live
February 16, 2022
PRTV Live will give supporters the chance to watch all Gallagher Premiership Rugby matches not being broadcast on BT Sport or ITV, from Round 18 on Friday 25 February.
PREMIERSHIP Rugby is launching a new streaming service, PRTV Live, which means fans will be able to watch every Gallagher Premiership Rugby match live this season
- A Match Pass is £4.99 to watch the game of your choice.
- A Round Pass is £6.99 to watch all fixtures included for a round of Gallagher Premiership Rugby
- All details from www.premiershiprugby.com/prtvlive
Starting this month as a pilot service, PRTV Live is streamed directly to fans via the Premiership Rugby mobile app and provides supporters with a comprehensive service. PRTV Live will show the games that are not broadcast by BT Sport or ITV, so fans will now have access to up to 480 minutes – eight hours – of pure rugby action over a weekend.
Simon Massie-Taylor, Chief Executive Officer at Premiership Rugby said:
“PRTV Live signals another step in our journey to grow the game and make Gallagher Premiership Rugby accessible to as many rugby fans as possible. Together with our partners BT Sport and ITV, PRTV Live will give supporters across the country the freedom to watch every game live, at home or on the go.
“Through this new platform, we want to create a deeper relationship with our current fans, who have asked us for this service and make the game as accessible as possible to new supporters. Having every match available to watch live is a crucial step forward for us.
“With 10 million rugby fans in England, PRTV Live will allow us to showcase the best of Gallagher Premiership Rugby to the widest possible audience, expanding our reach into the households of millions of other rugby fans. Not only that, but it’ll mean London Irish fans who can’t make the round trip of almost 600 miles to watch their team play Newcastle Falcons at Kingston Park, can still see the game live!”
The matches will be available to purchase via the Premiership Rugby website from 21 February 2022; the first matches will be streamed on the Premiership Rugby app on 25 February, kicking off with coverage of Bristol Bears v Wasps and Sale Sharks v London Irish, followed by Leicester Tigers v Gloucester Rugby and Newcastle Falcons v Bath Rugby the next day. From 25 March PRTV Live will also be available via desktop. A match pass will cost £4.99, and a full round pass will cost £6.99.
