TVNZ will also screen seven World Cup matches on free-to-air television

Spark New Zealand Ltd (ASX:SPK) has secured the rights to bring to New Zealanders coverage of Rugby World Cup 2019 and other world rugby tournaments.

As well as the 2019 event, the new package includes the Women’s Rugby World Cup 2021, the Rugby World Cup Sevens 2018, and World Rugby U20 Championships 2018 and 2019.

Streaming will be available

New Zealanders will be able to stream World Cup 2019 matches and related content live or on-demand over their home broadband or mobile connection, using a wide range of devices.

The service will offer free and paid content and will be available to all New Zealanders, not just Spark customers.

Spark has entered into an agreement with TVNZ which will see the free-to-air broadcaster screen seven Rugby World Cup 2019 matches live and a confirmed number of delayed matches.

No ads in live game time

This will include the tournament’s opening match and the final, the same number offered free-to-air in 2015, and ads will not run in live game time.

On Spark, the tournament will be offered on a pay to watch basis, with packages to include a tournament pass and passes for individual matches.
