Why no Western Force v Fijian Drua?
I noticed that this morning checking Fridays TV Guide, that this particular game is not being broadcasted on Sky for some reason by checking the Sky TV Guide planner and checking on the Sky Rugby Union website fixture list (see screenshot below).
Also it looks like The Warathas v The Rebels is not on Sky looking at the screenshot below and checking the TV Guide for Saturday.
I am also guessing they won't be on catchup also ?
Where I thought Sky had exclusive rights for every single Super Rugby game when they signed the new deal up until the 2025 season.
I was going to ask the same question i was not able to watch the Waratahs v Rebels game either is there a way to watch it?
Only four out of the six matches from Round 12 was on Sky.
I just checked the matches for Round 13 and 14 and they are all televised on Sky Sports.
Thanks i think i found out that it was shown on channel 9 Australia if i had known this on Saturday morning i would have gone on Australian tv on the internet and watched it, but everything pointed to it being on Sky sports. Thank you
Might be worth checking if the Warathas v Rebels game is on Sky tomorrow around 10.30 am (if you are interested in the game).
Because I have noticed some conflicting information on Sunday's game between the Brumbies v the Highlanders, where on the dedicated Sky Rugby Union website it says not on Sky (see screenshot 1) where screenshot 2 from the Sky + App TV Guide it says the game is available to watch live on Sky Sports Arena.
Looks like all six matches for round 13 next week and all six round 14 matches the week after will be televised on Sky Sports according to this Sky website link below.
No idea why there is a few Round 12 matches not being shown on Sky.
It's a pure guess on my part if the matches are not shown live, then they won't get added to 7 day catchup later in the day.
Perhaps check if the Force v Drua gets added later in the evening on the NOW on Demand service (my gut feeling it won't).
You could ask @ContentTeam about these games both live and on Demand but I asked the question the other day on a different Super Rugby match on Demand and was told they don't have the rights to this particular game.
I had another read of the Sky press announcement about the SANZAR deal until 2025 and it said around 150 games in the deal but didn't explicitly say all matches, which I thought was the case when I read the news back in 2022.
