SBS extends commitment to Australia’s Spring Tests

Australian public-service broadcaster SBS has extended its rights deal for the national rugby union team’s Spring Tour Test matches.

Having broadcast matches during the past two years of the Spring Tour, SBS will cover Australia’s Tests against Wales in Cardiff (November 11), Italy in Padua (November 18) and England at Twickenham Stadium, London (November 25).

Matches will be broadcast on SBS and SBS Viceland, as well as via the SBS On Demand service.

BeIN Sports holds pay-television rights to the Tests. Spring Tour matches are negotiated separately from the regular home season, rights to which are held by pay-television broadcaster Fox Sports and commercial broadcaster Ten.
