The 2018 NatWest Six Nations Championship gets underway this February, with BBC and ITV sharing the rights to the biggest Rugby Six Nations Live Stream tournament in the northern hemisphere.
With Six Nations Championship trailers starting to hit our TV screens ahead of the big kick off next month it may have escaped some minds not every one of Wales’ matches in the European extravaganza will be screened on the BBC.
Because the Beeb and rival broadcasters ITV are in the second year of a deal sharing the rights to screen the tournament. Their combined contract runs until 2021 after powerbrokers decided to keep the competition on terrestrial television rather than accept a marginally higher offer from Sky.
Coverage of the Six Nations games will be split evenly between the BBC and ITV, on national lines. Wales’ home games will be shown on the BBC, as will those of Scotland and France, while ITV will broadcast England, Ireland and Italy’s home matches.
Welsh language channel S4C will continue to show Wales’ games that are broadcast by the BBC and ITV as well as screening matches from the Under-20s’ defence of their 2016 Six Nations Championship crown.
Check out the full guide to every Six Nations match live on TV in the UK below, including dates, kick-off times, channel details and more.
