Rugby Union World Cup: TV Listings & Live Streaming

Live Rugby Union World Cup TV Schedule

ITV have the exclusive rights to broadcast live coverage of the Rugby World Cup, which is being staged in England from September 18th - October 31st when the World Cup final will be played at Twickenham.

BBC and Sky Sports both bid for the broadcast rights, but were beaten heavily by ITV who continue to commit to the biggest stage in Rugby Union, having had held the TV rights since 1991. ITV will show every match live from it's main channel ITV and also ITV4 (both in HD) - they will also show extensive hightlights, and you will be able to watch online on and ITV Player.

We will regularly update these dedicated Live Rugby World Cup on TV listings as soon as the fixtures are announced to make sure you know who is playing and how to access - you can also register and choose your favourite RU International team to receive email alerts when your team is playing live on TV.
