In the Men’s Six Nations Championship the games are shared between BBC and ITV this year. But importantly, it all revolves around who is playing at home.So, if England, Italy, and Ireland are playing at home, then the game will be televised on ITV.However, if France, Scotland, and Wales are, then the BBC is televising the match.
This deal appears to satisfy the politicians and petitioners, while reducing the BBC’s financial commitment to the tournament.
I’m told that the cultural significance of the game to Welsh audiences helped to secure Wales’s home games for the BBC, while ITV satisfies its audiences and advertisers by capturing the more lucrative England internationals at Twickenham.
Radio Wales and Radio Cymru commentary of all Wales games is also included in the deal.

The BBC and ITV have won the rights to broadcast rugby’s Six Nations competition.
WRU chairman and Six Nations council member Gareth Davies said the need to keep the games on free-to-air channels was a “strong motivator”.
