Sunday NRL games aired live on Channel 9 in 2015

SUNDAY afternoon NRL matches are set to be shown live on free-to-air television in 2015.

It means Rugby League fans will be able to watch seven matches live on television every week, two on Channel 9 and five on Fox Sports.

NRL CEO Dave Smith said the agreement was a win for all Rugby League fans.


“There is nothing better than watching games live and now it is going to become a prime time reality on Sundays,” he said.

“Channel 9 will show Sunday games live throughout the season so fans will see every minute of the game as it happens.

“It means NRL games will be shown live on Thursday, Friday, Saturday, Sunday and Monday in 2015.”

Mr Smith said the official schedule for 2015 would be released on Monday.
