Lengthy press release for this one which you can read here: http://www.scarlets.wales/en/news/articles/premier-sports-to-show-every-guinness-pro14-game-from-2018-19/

Main points
  • Every single Pro14 games next season will be watchable through PremierSport if you live in the UK
  • One game available free per round on partner channel Freesport
  • Coverage available in HD through Sky/Virgin or their own player which can be used via devices like Chromecast
  • Simon Thomas reporting that the deal is worth £30m to the league, up from £18m after S.African TV money at the start of this season, and that was up from £11m the season before. A decent increase which justifies the move from free-to-air TV in my opinion.

Says Freesport will be available through HD on Virgin upgrading over the Summer, but agree it doesn't say that about Premier Stern Smile

So does that mean you can share a subscription. Not that I’m suggesting it at all.

The press release states that negotiations are on going with a “local language broadcaster” That’s probably S4C.
It's not always about where you end up, it's about how you get there.

 CAN I VIEW ON MORE THAN 2 DEVICES AT ANY ONE TIME

No you have to log-out of 1 device to be able to log-in and view on a second device. If you are unable to access the original device you will have to wait 10 hours before being able to log-in on the new device.

Think FreeSport is already on Sky, channel 424.

Time to ditch sky sport then I think with the Champions Cup next season being on BT Sports.

Be interesting to see how many people will actually subscribe to Premier Sports. Especially with BT having Champion Cup and all the other subscriptions. Can't argue with the price and value for money, but personally I won't be paying for it because I've bought a Season Ticket and I go to away games regular so I'd hardly get any use out of it. Plus the highlights will be on FreeSportsTV and that is enough for me. I completely understand the decision from the PRO 14 as it brings in a lot of well needed ££ - but why didn't Sky or BT match or better their offer? Hopefully those who aren't willing to pay £99 per year, will opt for a season ticket for £100 a year instead. Wishful thinking
I wrote about it a few weeks back if you're interested -
