SANZAR announces new online viewing partnership
August 03, 2012
SANZAR today is proud to announce a new service to allow viewers in countries where there is no television broadcast agreement in place to watch this weekend’s Vodacom Super Rugby Final between the Chiefs and The Sharks.

The service will also allow full viewing of The Castle Rugby Championship later this year, and will cover Super Rugby and The Rugby Championship for the 2013 seasons.

SANZAR CEO Greg Peters was excited about the new service, which would bring SANZAR rugby competitions to countries that currently don’t have access on traditional broadcasting platforms.

“We have been working hard to ensure that as many fans as possible globally can watch Vodacom Super Rugby and The Castle Rugby Championship which will give SANZAR rugby competitions a truly global footprint” Peters said.

“It allows us to offer many counties, particularly within Europe and South America, the chance to enjoy the action, and we are excited to have it ready to go for the Super Rugby Final.”

PERFORM, who will work with SANZAR in delivering this service, has one of the largest sports rights portfolios for over 200 sporting codes, and last year delivered nearly 3 billion video streams, and has a reach of hundreds of million sporting fans.

The package is accessible via www.superrugby.livesport.tv.
