Both broadcasters will also have live coverage of Ireland’s Round 2 trip to Twickenham to face England, meaning all of Ireland’s games in the new eight-team tournament will be available to supporters in Ireland and the UK on free-to-air platforms.
In addition to broadcasting free-to-air coverage of all of Ireland’s games in the UK, Channel 4 will show highlights from all rounds of the Autumn Nations Cup after striking a deal with Amazon Prime Video.
But in order to watch the other games, viewers in UK will need an Amazon subscription. As for Ireland – we’re still in the dark as to how we’ll watch the rest of the tournament.
