NEWS | Petrie welcomes landmark TV deal

Edinburgh fans will be able to enjoy every game in the Guinness PRO14 live and in high definition from next season, as part of a new three-year agreement between PRO14 Rugby and Premier Sports.

All of the competition’s 152 fixtures will be available to supporters across the UK, with one match per round to be shown live and free-to-air on sister channel FreeSports.

There will also be a weekly magazine and highlights show, taking Edinburgh supporters right into the heart of the Championship for just £9.99 a month.

With all games being shown live it will mean that there will now be Television Match Officials at every game.

Edinburgh Managing Director, Jonny Petrie, said:

Today’s announcement is fantastic news for the club and for the competition as a whole.

“We’re looking forward to PRO14 rugby being the main event with one host broadcaster – meaning more consistency over kick-off times for supporters, more in-depth coverage and analysis of our season and an enhanced viewer experience through high definition and TMOs at every match.

“There’s an obvious financial benefit to the league and the clubs involved, but this latest development is great news for everyone who follows Edinburgh and enjoys watching PRO14 rugby as the competition continues to go from strength to strength.”
