Amazon Prime Video will be the broadcasting partner in this year’s Autumn Nations Series in which they will be streaming 17 live games.
Having already successfully broadcasting the Autumn Nations Cup last year, the streaming giant now broadcast in the United Kingdom the games involving England, Scotland, France, Wales and Italy with the fixtures involving Ireland to be part of the 2022 coverage.
“We are delighted to be working with Prime Video again for the broadcast of the Autumn Nations Series. They were a fantastic partner last year and we share the same ambition to establish an exciting series that fans will engage with and enjoy," said Six Nations chief executive Ben Morel.
“We have worked closely with all our Unions to agree a schedule of fixtures, that minimizes overlaps making it possible for supporters in UK and Ireland to watch every single match from the home teams in a series that will showcase the best teams in the northern hemisphere against the best teams in the southern hemisphere, with Argentina, Australia, New Zealand and South Africa all featuring.
“The series will also be the opportunity for the public to enjoy some of rugby’s emerging nations, Japan, Tonga, Georgia and Fiji and witness some of rugby’s great growing talents.”
“We are thrilled to continue working with Six Nations Rugby to bring more top-level international rugby union to Prime Video. Our collaboration for the Autumn Nations Cup provided support to the Unions member clubs and brought a new tournament to millions of Prime households during a disrupted year in the rugby calendar," said Alex Green, MD Prime Video Sport Europe.
“The Autumn Nations Series will build on that and deliver highly anticipated tests between the best and most exciting teams from the northern and southern hemispheres.”
