Premiership Rugby launches PRTV Live

PREMIERSHIP Rugby has launched a new streaming service, PRTV Live which will give supporters the chance to watch all Gallagher Premiership Rugby matches not being broadcast on BT Sport or ITV.

Starting 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!”
