If you're planning to stream the 2018 NRL Grand Final through the NRL Live Pass app, we have some bad news for you. Due to a change in digital rights ownership, the NRL Grand Final will only be available through Channel 9 streaming services. Here's how to get connected.
For those who didn't get the memo, Channel Nine has acquired exclusive digital rights to the NRL Final in 2018. This means you can't watch the match on the NRL Live Pass app - even if you're a paying customer.
Here are the details from the NRL website:
The NRL and its broadcast and digital media partners will embark on a new five-year rights agreement from 2018.
Under the new rights agreement, the NRL Grand Final and the State of Origin series will no longer be available to live stream via NRL Live Pass through the NRL Official App.
Channel 9 will hold the exclusive broadcast and digital rights to those games from 2018.
