Ten, Fox to show Rugby World Cup

Network 10 and Fox Sports have announced that they have secured broadcast and streaming rights to the 2019 Rugby World Cup in Japan.

Network 10 will host free-to-air coverage of this year's Rugby World Cup in Japan after securing broadcast and digital rights, including live streaming and catch-up.

On pay-for-view, Fox Sports will show all 48 matches of the six-week tournament from September 20 live on a dedicated channel with Kayo Sports to stream the coverage on demand.


As part of Ten's deal, it will broadcast 10 of the best games live, including every Wallabies game, up to and including the final.

Network head of sport Matt White says Australian viewers will also be able to enjoy viewing matches in prime time.

"For Australian fans, the great thing is that matches will be played in a country with a similar time-zone," he said on Saturday.

"The tournament fits perfectly into our schedule, complementing other major sporting events in our calendar."

Meanwhile, Fox's World Cup channel will include match previews, daily highlights and archived games from previous editions of the tournament.
