Am I right in thinking that Amazon Prime have the TV rights again this year?

All of England's Womens matches are on live on BBC 2, so for some that'll be are only option. I'm still hopeful the France games will be on French TV, not sure if the Amazon Prime deal is only in the UK ?

Tried signing up last year, but it's geo-restricted, even though I had a Prime UK trial !

I think all Wales AI matches are now on Amazon. Sign of the times, previously they would all have been on free to air BBC . S4C. The need for money is everywhere, not just at Glos.

Wonder why the URC has gone free to air. The two seasons we followed Scarlets saw crowds of around 3000. Now it’s free to air I shudder to think

A quick look and I don't think it is. Matches are on Premier Sports which isn't free. You can watch via URC TV, but either pay for single matches or for all of them on a season Pass.

All 4 Welsh regions were on free to air last weekend, but that I understand was a one off. The Scarlets played the SA Lions 2 weeks ago, 8k attendance, 50% of capacity, but that included free tickets for NHS workers.

Restrictions in Wales are currently far more strict than in England.

The autumn internationals have been on pay to view TV (sky sports) for years now, only difference is it's now Amazon prime instead of sky sports, which I'm happy about as I have Amazon prime but not sky sports.
