Europe’s most prestigious international rugby tournament, the Six Nations, kicks off this weekend for 2021. Want to watch it all live? Here is The Roar‘s guide to live streaming every match of the Six Nations, or watching them on Australian TV.
The 2021 Six Nations gets underway on Sunday, February 7 (Australian time) at 1:15am (AEDT), with last year’s runner-up, France, travelling to Rome to take onItaly at the Stadio Olimpico.
How to watch the Six Nations on TV
The exclusive broadcaster of Six Nations rugby into Australia is BeIN Sports. There are a number of ways to access beIN for rugby fans to catch all the action from across the globe.
If you have a valid Foxtel TV subscription with the sports package, you will be able to access BeIN Sports and follow every match. Most Six Nations matches will be on beIN Sports 3 (Foxtel channel 515); however, we recommend you check your TV guide in advance to confirm.
BeIN Sports is also available to view on Fetch TV for $19.99 a month. Fetch currently carries all three beIN channels as part of its subscription, so if you have it, you won’t need to miss a moment of the action.
Unfortunately, no free-to-air broadcasters in Australia have the rights to the Six Nations, so a late-night sports bar might be your best bet to catch the game if the above two options aren’t for you.

How to live stream the Six Nations online
If you’d prefer to live stream the Six Nations, there are three options you can choose between.
The best option is Kayo Sports, which lets you stream almost every piece of sporting content available on Foxtel through your preferred mobile device, computer or Samsung TV.
A Kayo subscription costs $25 a month, but if you haven’t used the service before, you can catch the first fortnight of the tournament as part of their two-week free trial.
Kayo also allows you to stream matches at your convenience, meaning you don’t have to miss a moment of the action without needing to become a night owl for the next two months.
Your second option is a Foxtel GO subscription. If you’ve already signed up, just use the Foxtel GO app – included in your subscription – to stream the Six Nations.
The last live streaming service is a direct subscription to beIN Sports Connect, which costs $19.99 a month or $199.99 for the whole year. Like with Kayo, either BeIN plan gives you a two-week free trial so you can decide whether it’s for you.
