    Question Internet broadcast of Super Rugby in 2011?

    I've been trying to find out about whether the new Super Rugby season will be available online as it was previously throught Sportszone. Apparently this arrangement has ended and it doesn't appear that it has been offered to anyone else.

    This leaves me in a bit of a pickle as I really can't afford Foxtel :-(

    Have looked at the new Xbox 360 Foxtel deal, but have spoken to them and confirmed that their 'Sports' channel will not actually include any of the Super Rugby (at least not full games and certainly not live) so that's pretty much a waste of time on their part as apparently it also won't have NRL or AFL... not sure who they think will take it up.

    Anyhoo, does anyone else have any idea if there IS a new internet broadcaster? I know that iinet have also lost their rights to the Aussie Super games :-(

    1) Buy a rugby membership for home games
    2) goto pub for away games

    3) move to asia to get rugby at australia online (or whatever the abc's australia promotion channel is).

    If I went to the pub for every game I want to watch I would go broke from buying booze and become an alcoholic. On top of which there are no pubs near where I live that show rugby or even have Foxtel. I will certainly be going to as many of the Rebels games as I can here in Melbourne (most certainly the Force match!)

    if you have too, you can stream them off the net if you ahve a decent connection... best way i have found to be able to afford it. Especially the SA games.

    I've been doing so for the past 2 season. Usually not the sharpest picture but good enough for me..
