BBC and ITV will share the tournament live coverage rights in the UK and we take a look how you can access live action of all Six Nations Matches through official sources for absolutely free worldwide.
TV Channels Broadcasting 2015 Six Nations Rugby Championship:
#1. Official Live Streaming Feeds trough VPN:
UK Coverage Free (Recommended) BBC and ITV has the live coverage rights in the UK and they produce the best coverage for Six Nations Rugby every year..
Both BBC and ITV have live rights for TV, mobile and online streaming in the uk which is a good news for Rugby fans across the world. “ITV Player” and “BBC iplayer” are available free through BBC and ITV respective websites or mobile apps but only for UK ip address. So although ITV or BBC online coverage is free but you do need an UK IP address (you have to be in the UK or need an UK IP if abroad). That opens up the chance for international viewers to get the live coverage through BBC or ITV player from anywhere in the world with just a simple step and that is buying an VPN account and using UK server/ip address to pretend you are in the UK.
So lets say you are in Spain and want english coverage all you need to do is buy an VPN (cost around $5 to $10 a month) and get a UK IP address and you are all good to access both BBC and ITV online platforms for absolutely free from anywhere in the world.
