The countdown is on until the most anticipated event of the rugby calendar. And this year the 2019 Rugby World Cup is coming to you live and on demand through Spark Sport, the only place to watch all 48 Rugby World Cup matches this September.

To ensure you don’t miss a single minute of rugby – no matter where you are – and experience viewing at its best, here’s a few things you need to sort out well before the first whistle blows.

Check your connection

First things first, check you are set up with a good broadband connection at home. Spark’s connection check helps you gauge if your internet is fast enough to stream Spark Sport without any issues. It’s recommended that you run it on the device you’ll be using to stream, between peak times of 8pm and 9pm. And, because speeds can vary between households, check you can stream quality video content over your connection.

Check your technology

Once your connection is all lined up, you’ll need to make sure you have the right technology to stream Spark Sport. There is a range of compatible devices to plug into, so head online to check if yours is one of them, for regular updates.

Get your Tournament Pass

Once you’re confident your connection and technology are good to go, the final leg of prep before all systems are go is buying a Spark Sport Tournament Pass. Your pass provides you with access to all 48 matches live and on demand, plus highlights, interviews and more. So, whether you’re planning on streaming on the move or just chilling at home, you’ll get your Spark Sport fix no matter your rugby whereabouts. Get your pass at
