Six Nations fans who are constantly on the move do not have to limit their viewing of all the rugby action to their televisions at home. There are numerous apps that will allow you to live stream all the fixtures from your iPhone or iPad. Whether you are on the train, grabbing a cup of coffee, or on a break inside the office, you have access to all the rugby action from your pocket.
BBC not only offers a regular televised broadcast of select fixtures, but they offer live stream thru BBC iPlayer. Any fixture in the Six Nations championship that is televised on BBC One will also be available on BBC iPlayer. If you must leave the house while watching a fixture on BBC, then switch over to iPlayer so you do not miss any big plays.
ITV Hub works in a similar manner as BBC iPlayer for fans in the UK who wish to live stream Six Nations on their mobile device. Any fixture that is televised on ITV will be available to live stream on ITV Hub.
For live streams on BBC iPlayer and ITV Hub, it is equally as important to know the broadcast schedule of each fixture. You cannot live stream a fixture on BBC iPlayer that is aired by ITV and vice versa. Download both apps to your mobile device so you can access both apps when needed.
When the NBC Sports Group obtained the rights to broadcast Six Nations, they made the fixtures available to live stream on the NBC Sports app. Whenever you cannot access NBC Sports Network with cable or an online streaming service, then you can live stream the NBC Sports app with your iPad or iPhone.
Americans not only have the NBC Sports app to stream on their mobile device, but the WatchESPN app provides another great option to utilize. ESPN provides everything sports related and rugby is no exception.
Diehard Six Nations Rugby fans can gather all critical information on this year’s edition of the classic with the official Guinness Six Nations Rugby app. Named after the new sponsor of the Six Nations championship, the app will feature coverage of all fixtures and provide news, standings, and more. The app is available in English, French, and Italian so the languages of all the nations in the championship are represented.
Having one of the aforementioned apps downloaded onto your iPhone or iPad can be such a convenience when you least expect it during the Six Nations championship.
