SKY introduces exciting new rugby broadcast features

A reminder of the great features we’re offering rugby fans for Saturday night’s matches:

UNLEASHING SPIDERCAM
An alternative, gravity-defying way to watch the Black Ferns and All Blacks play will be introduced to New Zealand rugby fans this Saturday. Viewers will now have the option to enjoy both test matches via a LIVE dedicated Spidercam channel! Watch these two huge test matches like never before as the Sky Spidercam dips and dives above Eden Park capturing all of the thrilling action. The new viewing experience will be available to Sky rugby fans on Sky channel 50 and will feature Sky commentary as well as a scoreboard. Viewers will also have the ability to use Spidercam as a second screen with the use of Sky Go on a separate device

• BLACK FERNS V WALLAROOS – Spidercam coverage will begin from 4.50pm on Sky channel 50.
• ALL BLACKS V WALLABIES - Spidercam coverage will begin from 7.25pm on Sky channel 50.

POST-MATCH PRESS CONFERENCE
The All Blacks post-match press conference will be broadcast LIVE on Sky Sport News (Sky channel 50) at roughly 9.45pm. This will be broadcast on the same channel as the Spidercam viewing experience.

A NEW WAY TO WATCH – SKY SPORT NOW
Rugby fans can now catch both the Black Ferns v Wallaroos and the All Blacks v Wallabies test matches LIVE on Sky Sport’s new sports streaming service - Sky Sport Now.

Having launched this week, Sky Sport Now provides sports fans with access to all 12 Sky Sport and ESPN channels, including a new dedicated Sky Sport News channel, without the need for a Sky subscription. Sky Sport Now offers three pass options: $19.99 for a weekly pass; $49.99 for a one-month pass; and a 12-month pass at $39.99 per month.

Sky Sport Now is available on a range of devices, including PCs and Macs, Apple devices (including Apple TV), Android devices, Chromecast, select Samsung TVs and PlayStation.

TE REO COMMENTARY IS BACK THIS WEEKEND
We’re pleased to be offering the option of te reo commentary, provided by the talented Tūmamao Harawira and Maihau Houltham for the Black Ferns match and Tūmamao Harawira and Hon Peeni Henare for the All Blacks match.

You can access the alternative commentary by pressing the yellow (language) button on your Sky remote once the match coverage has started. Select ‘Audio Language’, and using the up/down arrows select ‘”English Alt’ and press the “select button” on the Sky remote.

CLOSED CAPTIONING FOR THE DEAF AND HARD-OF-HEARING:
We’re also pleased to offer live captioning of the commentary for the matches, including the replays.
