TVNZ is the free-to-air broadcast partner of Rugby World Cup 2019.
To watch Rugby World Cup 2019 matches on TVNZ 1 just turn on your telly as usual. Most viewers watch with us through traditional broadcast using a TV connected to an aerial or satellite dish – AKA free-to-air broadcast TV.
For viewers used to live streaming TVNZ 1 via TVNZ OnDemand or our TVNZ app, we’re really sorry but the matches won’t be available for viewing in that way.
TVNZ 1’s live stream will be turned off when we screen any matches – so if you watch TVNZ 1 online through TVNZ OnDemand or via the TVNZ app, you’ll need to head over to Spark Sport to stream these games or switch to free-to-air broadcast TV.
