All Blacks to livestream matches during end of year Northern Tour
New Zealand Rugby (NZR) and SKY will partner to livestream some of the All Blacks matches on their up-and-coming end-of-year tour to the Northern Hemisphere.
Matches against the UK Barbarians and a France XV will be streamed, as well as the Maori All Blacks' matches against Canada and the French Barbarians, in a move designed to grow the global fan base for the teams in black.
All four games will be livestreamed as pay-per-view events on AllBlacksTV.com, and will be available to both international and New Zealand-based fans.
"We are excited to be working with SKY to provide international and New Zealand-based fans the opportunity to watch the All Blacks and Maori All Blacks across a range of platforms and viewing options, including AllBlacksTV video on demand," said NZR chief executive Steve Tew.
