“Universal Sports Network will offer more access points to watch the Rugby World Cup in the United States than ever before,” said Scott Brown, President of Universal Sports Network. “This new over-the-top product enables us to deliver one of the biggest sporting events in the world across multiple platforms allowing fans to follow every minute of the action from England.”
To develop the WatchRWC2015 digital platform, Universal Sports Network used Cupertino-based 1 Mainstream, the leading platform for broadcasters, networks and pay TV companies to distribute premium content to connected devices. In addition, 1 Mainstream’s cross-platform authentication enables users with a subscription to watch Rugby World Cup matches on multiple devices.
“WatchRWC2015 helps us provide the broadest possible access for fans to watch the entire Rugby World Cup 2015 tournament,” said Universal Sports Network SVP of Digital Media and Strategic Partnerships, Edward Derse. “This platform will be the only online destination available to watch the entire 48-match tournament, and also ensures that fans will have a seamless viewing experience no matter the device from which they choose to stream matches.”
In addition to live pay-per-view streaming, Universal Sports and NBC will broadcast nine of the tournament’s 48 matches. Individual matches also will be available live on a residential TV pay-per-view basis from cable and satellite providers in the coming weeks.
Universal Sports Network acquired multi-platform media rights to the Rugby World Cup in a multi-year deal with World Rugby (previously known as the IRB or International Rugby Board) prior to the 2011 edition which allowed for Universal Sports and NBC to broadcast the quadrennial tournament LIVE for the first time in the United States.
The Rugby World Cup is one of the largest and most avidly watched sporting events in the world, drawing an estimated 3.9 billion cumulative global TV audience in 207 territories during the 2011 event in New Zealand. The 2015 tournament field consists of 20 different nations, including defending champion New Zealand and the United States, who will compete over the course of six weeks for the coveted Webb Ellis Cup. New Zealand and Australia jointly hosted the first edition of the Rugby World Cup in 1987.
