We are renting a house in LA that has Universal Sports and the channel only shows the US games when i checked online on their website it say we can buy the full rugby package for $124 + instead of $24 per game but it says it's on the computer and I can't find if it's also available on TV.I found various satellite direct options onto lap top and we are Mac users not PC but we have tried once before and subscribed but the feed and the quality is terrible plus we don't know which site is reliable!!

Hi there, NBC/Universal Sports has screwed US viewers pretty hard this time around. I've mentioned this before in a previous thread, but in 2007 we originally only had to pay $15 a month for a channel that had all of the matches live and delayed. Right now, your only option for televised matches is PPV. Please go to Facebook if you have an account and like this page below ..

If you want to watch the cup in full without paying a heavy price I have other options for you. Please PM me for details.

I just read the terms again and the $149 is only for 7 matches which means additional $24 for any other game? That's highway robbery! will send pm thanks.

I'm from Chicago too, so I know how you feel. Thinking ahead to Japan 2019, it will be even worse, though I highly doubt I will still be living here by that time.

Yeah, it is really sad. Please support that Facebook group against NBC.

Click on a person's username and select from the drop down menu "Private Message." If that doesn't work on iPad, I'll send you one. I don't know why you can't open that link, but try searching on Facebook for the Bring full coverage of Rugby World cup to US cable tv petition page.

Repeat matches/delayed, etc all are a part of that expensive package by NBC.

There has got to be someone who has a live online audio stream, no? I can listen to any NFL, MLB, NBA game this way.

Surely with the number of USA TV channels and the USA involved, if only for a day or so, they must have it somewhere?
