I have been using a streaming service to watch the extensive BT (and Channel 4/5) coverage since being exiled, but it's a patchy service and wondering if Bet365 would be more reliable

As far as I am aware you will need a VPN to make it work, plus probably a UK/ROI credit card in the first place.

I use ExpressVPN and it works for everything I’ve tried so far

I use Rugbypass which streams all Prem games live, regardless of being shown in the UK. You can also watch games 'on demand' should you not be able to view them live. However, you need a far east IP address. I use a VPN (Mullvad) which I choose to place me in Singapore. I pay with a UK credit card. I watch on my desktop PC (I believe they have an app also, though know nothing about it). You need a relatively fast internet connection and the picture quality is usually excellent and there is rarely any lag. I have been using this for 2 seasons now and they stream other games as well. As I only like to watch rugby, I cancelled both Sky and BT sports and my sub for the VPN + Rugbypass is less than I was paying previously.

Despite the move from Sky to BT some time ago my faith in televised matches continues to be at best disappointed, at worst angry. Why would I continue to believe (even though I give them the same chance to redeem themselves each week) the promise that BT would screen more live matches than ever before! I think Channel 5 are coming close to beating them!

Yes - I am biased

Yes - I do want to see Gloucester games above any other (who doesn’t)

Yes - I do think the televised choices sway public opinion, and definitely that of the press brigade that report (often inaccurately) on how good that weekends ‘star players’ were. Because they were the only ones they could watch from their sofa whilst shoving nachos and gin into their lazy faces!

So, do I renew my BT subscription? Rugby is the only reason I have a BT subscription, and no (sadly for all those that will shout at me to be a real supporter and get to the ground on match day with my season ticket, it’s not an option, and I’m not going to explain why as that is my business)

It seems to me that if they could show as much live rugby (even on a red button!) as they do editions and the-runs of the Austin’s Healy and Ben Kay Saracens Love-In show then the parity against what BT offered to shush Stuart Barnes May be worth the renewal. If not, I think I might be continuing to shizzle out spoilerss and wait until Monday so I can watch the full match replay on Premiership TV online.

The whole reason for my post/rant I suppose is that I am amazingly disappointed that all matches in this final weekend are not being aired live on TV somewhere. Only two matches on BT Sports, none on Terrestrial but all on Bet 365! Hmmmm, Money talks I suppose!

And as an aside did anyone see the mainstream news coverage of Saracens being European Champions? Nope, me neither.... but as long as they managed to squeeze in a league 4 Wendy-ball story everything is alright!

End-of-rant!


Warrior - You are either living in a parallel universe OR have lost the plot !! Absolute poppycock, gibberish and a factually incorrect posting.
Nothing wrong with free speech or having an opinion - as long as it matches mine !!

Only problem i had trying to use a VPN to watch BT Sport on BT Sport App, was the App needed location services, even with the VPN enabled it still knew I was out of the country. If I disabled Phone and just used wifi it still didnt work, I had to have 3G network on, and location services.
I was using IPVanish.
Also you can use PaddyPower that will also stream the games as well as Bet365.
