Rugby World Cup

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know if True will be showing this as Setanta, where it has been on in the past, do not appear to be showing it as have not seen any promotion for it on their channel. Any info would be helpful.

BEIN Sports have the rights for Thailand.  Watch online only AFAIK.

 

Their Rugby World Cup package is ฿1,600.

Where I come from in New Zealand they only have streaming packages with delayed broadcasts on mainstream TV. Rugby authorities must be trying to get less people to watch as there is already a hue & cry in NZ & I can't see many paying out 1,600 here.I was hoping True would show it on one of their BEIN channels.

The BEIN sports channels have been removed from True as of a week or so ago. (maybe more?)

Or maybe Rugby authorities are not catering to freeloaders

Irrelevant comment. More viewers means more potential advertising revenue

Delayed streams have the same potential advertising revenue, and what is more those advertising rights have been paid upfront, and are just a drop in the sea compared to the broadcasting rights.

My fault for mentioning the advertising revenue. Really just interested in how RWC can be viewed in Thailand

As JaiMaai has said you can watch it by logging into beIN Sports, and I enquired as to where it was being streamed from, because of my Internet connection and they assured me that they had a server in Thailand to service the Thai demand.

 

I will certainly be paying the 1600 baht to watch it and will be signing up within a day or two – – can't miss the All Blacks games, however I do believe the Springboks are also strong contenders for the cup.

I have subscribed to BEIN sports online package as obviously Scotland is going to win it this time.
