Affordable rugby alternatives for Sky TV are not so cheap

Sky Television will allow for standalone season pass options, but it comes with a hefty catch.


A “season pass” to Super Rugby, or the NRL if you would prefer, will cost $299.00.

A monthly fee of $70 is available, or weekly for $29.

Access to the content will be through a website called Fan Pass which is powered by Sky Sport.

Although this option of standalone season passes is what consumers fed up with Sky TV’s high prices have been asking for, the fee for a single season of Super Rugby is surprisingly high.

Add in that this content is online only, it requires high speed internet and reasonably stable connections which in many areas are few in far between, consumers should be still a little skeptical about leaving the monthly $100 for their MySky HDi boxes just yet.

The new service rolls out next week.
