It's hard to believe but another footy season is almost behind us. (Where did the year go?) In a few hours, the Sydney Roosters will take on Melbourne Storm to decide the 2018 NRL Premiership. Here's everything you need to know about viewing the NRL Final — whether you're planning to watch on TV, online, down the pub or in the stadium.


This past weekend the AFL and the NRL finished up with their huge Grand Finals. You already know the results. Did your team win? The mighty Adelaide Crows - my team - lost. Poorly. If you follow the Crows or the North Queensland Cowboys then, you are probably in the same big, sad boat.

I know. It stings.

But take a paddle and let’s row out of this mess, together.


Another footy season is almost behind us. In a few hours, Melbourne Storm will take on the North Queensland Cowboys to decide the 2017 NRL Premiership. Here's everything you need to know about viewing the NRL Final — whether you're planning to watch live, at the pub, on TV or on the internet.


This Sunday night, October 1, the Melbourne Storm face off against the giant-killing North Queensland Cowboys at Sydney’s ANZ Stadium.

Football fans this weekend are in for a treat as the AFL and NRL Grand Finals are on Saturday and Sunday, respectively. How do you watch it for free if you don't have tickets to see the games live? How can you watch them if you're overseas? How do you make conversation with AFL and NRL fans when you know nothing about the two sports? What snacks should you make while you and your mates watch the games? We've got you covered.


The lack of high-definition sports broadcasts on free-to-air television is an ongoing source of frustration for football fans, particularly when the grand final months of September and October roll around. Unsurprisingly, money is the main reason standard definition continues to rule the roost, though there was a glimmer of hope as Nine remained undecided about the HD prospects of an NRL grand final. Well, the suspense is over -- it'll be SD thanks to "technical difficulties".


Hey Lifehacker, I'm a complete sports nut currently living with crappy television reception that can't be fixed. How can I watch State of Origin matches at home for free without a TV set up to receive free-to-air broadcasts?


Dear Lifehacker, Looking at the TV guide, I see that once again there is no high-definition (HD) broadcast for the State of Origin on Channel Nine. I will again have no other option but to watch a standard definition (SD) presentation of the game on my HD-ready plasma TV. What I can't understand is why?


Channel Nine and FOX Sports have finalised a deal for National Rugby League (NRL) rights over the next five years. Forget the game: we want to talk about the tech. Does the deal properly take advantage of HD transmission, online streaming and the multi-channel environment? Sort of.
