The NRL is set to get a big boost in its coverage this weekend as the big games are set to be streamed live.
The big game between the Sydney Roosters and Melbourne Storm is expected to be the first live-streamed NRL game on a digital platform since the 2017 grand final, when the Storm defeated the Rooster’s 39-19.
The live stream will also be available to fans via the NRL app on iPhone and Android devices.
The Roostering-Melbourne match is set for Sunday, October 1 at 7.45pm AEST (15:45pm CEST), which will be broadcast live on ABC.
The match will also stream live on the NRL App for iPhones and Android smartphones, but there are no plans to make the game available to TV viewers.
The Storm will be joined by the Sharks and Raiders in the finals, but they are unlikely to be able to reach the same level of success that they achieved in the grand final.
The NRL has been working hard to stream the games live on a number of platforms, including on the Apple Watch and Android Wear devices.
It has also partnered with Fox Sports to provide live streams for its games.
However, it has been struggling to find a way to stream all of its games, which are also available on a variety of devices, including smartwatches, smartphones and tablets.
“We are delighted to announce that we will be offering live-broadcast coverage of the 2018 NRL grand final on Apple Watch, iOS and Android,” NRL chief operating officer Neil Mitchell said in a statement.
“This will include live streams from all the big NRL games, including the 2018 grand final and the 2018 Super League grand final.”
The NRL is also making a concerted effort to stream its games online, and this weekend, the NRL will be streaming the NRL Grand Final on its website and app.
The live stream is available on both the NRL Watch app and NRL app, but will only be available for mobile devices.
“With our app and app now available, we are excited to provide fans with the most up-to-date information about all of the NRL matches and the games that are being played throughout the year,” Mitchell said.
“As we begin our 2019 season, we have also begun working closely with Fox Sport to offer live streams of all of our games live across the network, including all NRL games this season.”
Fans will also have the chance to see the match in full on the FOX Sports app, which will offer the best viewing experience of any live sport in the country.
