How to watch Rugby Six Nations 2017 online: Rugby Six Nations TV coverage & how to watch live on a phone, tablet, PC or laptop

All the Rugby Six Nations 2017 matches will be streamed live on the BBC or ITV in the UK. Scroll down to the fixtures list for details of which channel each match will be streamed on.

To watch live on a PC, laptop, smartphone or tablet you can either use a Freeview app such as TVCatchup, or you can use the BBC or ITV's own streaming apps, iPlayer and ITV Hub.

All three apps are free to download to a phone or tablet from the App Store or Google Play, and can be accessed in a web browser on a PC or laptop.

If you are not on an unlimited mobile data contract on your phone or tablet you should ensure that you are connected to Wi-Fi to avoid high data charges. To stream live rugby matches on a PC, laptop, tablet or smartphone you also need to have a valid TV Licence.

Because BBC iPlayer and ITV Hub are also catch-up on-demand apps, you can use them to re-watch rugby matches that have already finished. You can view a list of recent programmes under each channel tab, or use the search function to find the exact match you're looking for.

As before, if you are not on an unlimited mobile data contract on your phone or tablet you should ensure that you are connected to Wi-Fi. However, you do not need a TV Licence to watch already-broadcast Rugby Six Nations matches on a PC, laptop, tablet or smartphone.

How to watch Rugby Six Nations 2017 online: How to watch Rugby Six Nations outside the UK

BBC iPlayer and ITV Hub are geo-restricted outside the UK, but that doesn't mean you can't watch the Rugby Six Nations when you're overseas. All you need do is download a VPN that will mask your IP address and make it appear to the app that you are in fact in the UK. You can then navigate to iPlayer or ITV Player in your web browser and watch whatever you like.
