    Default Super League+ streaming platform to launch. Every match broadcast.

    Super League's new streaming service will launch next week as the competition embarks on a new era of broadcasting. 'Super League+' will be launched on January 23rd, with the service providing supporters with the ability to watch every single game without needing a Sky Sports subscription.

    Every match will be broadcast next year, with Sky Sports footing the production bill. For the first 15 rounds of the season, every game will be shown on Sky Sports, but rugby league fanatics can alternatively buy a subscription to the competition's new platform, which will give them the ability to watch every game, every week, for the entire season.

    Providing further insight on the platform, Rugby League Commercial's Managing Director, Rhodri Jones, said: "It will be a subscription platform, similar to Netflix. You'll be able to buy an annual pass, a monthly pass or a game pay-per-view pass. In effect, the six games a weekend, two games are exclusively for Sky Sports. Let's, for example, say a Thursday night and one game on a Friday night. If there are other games on the same night, that game will be available on Super League+. If you are a Sky Sports subscriber, you are also able to watch that game via a Sky Sports platform.

    "In the first 15 rounds, it has been commented and noticed that all games will sit on the front channels of Sky Sports, that's because there's no streaming platform owned by Sky Sports. That is in development and the aspiration from their perspective is to get that ready for the new EFL season in August.

    "So there's a bit of a lag there for rugby league. After round 15, two matches will stay on the front channels and the other four will disappear onto the Sky Sports streaming platform. In terms of Super Legaue+, we'll launch on the 23rd; you can buy immediately at that point; there are over 250 pieces of archive uploaded onto the system, so it will be a proper subscription service."

    It means that the new subscription platform is looking to attract the same audience as Sky itself. There is a possibility that the two platforms are essentially in competition but Jones said: "Modern-day sport, modern-day competition. You could argue there's conflict, equally Sky Sports is producing more games and delivering more content to their audience as well. There's a world where both can exist.

    "Our pricing will be very much akin to other competitions. The competition and market, namely around Netflix and monthly. Sky, I would say, is a more considered purchase. In my household, it's 130 a month. We're clearly not going to be that expensive. There's a place for both."

    I hope they offer it in similar fashion to WatchNRL. Or at worst I can use it using a VPN. I can finally watch all Warrington's games.
