It’s that time of year again, the 2019 Guinness Six Nations is being played and you need a way to watch the matches.

Ireland is looking to defend their title and repeat as Six Nation Champions but, depending on where you are located, you may not be able to watch the matches online.

We’ve checked the live stream options and couldn’t find any (legal ways) that are available everywhere as most sites restrict viewers to a specific geographic location.

This means that you may need to pay a few bucks for a VPN in order to watch the matches. The games are being live streamed for free, so the few bucks a month for the VPN isn’t too bad.

Quick navigation:

The English broadcast will be split between the BBC iPlayer and ITV Hub, and between them you can watch every match for free. You will need to create a free account for each site, and confirm it with your email, in or to access the live stream.

If you are not located in the UK you will need a VPN to bypass the geo block and enjoy the match.

You can check the tournament schedule at the bottom of the page and see which games can be seen on the iPlayer and which are on ITV Hub.

  1. Get a VPN. We’ve done a lot of testing on the BBC iPlayer with NordVPN and it has always performed great.
  2. Connect the VPN to a UK server.
  3. BBC iPlayer: If this is your first time using the the iPlayer you will need to create a free account. You will need to provide a UK Postal Code , if you don’t know any you can use B57UA or AB10 1YP.
  4. ITV Hub: Much like the iPlayer, you will need to create an account using a UK Postal Code. If you don’t know any you can use the same one that you used to create the iPlayer account.
