TNT Sports and discovery+ have revealed that viewers in the UK and Ireland will have exclusive access to every match of the 2024 Autumn Nations Series.

Kicking off on the first weekend of November with a huge clash between England and New Zealand at Twickenham, the 2024 Autumn Nations Series will be available to watch on TNT Sports and discovery+ for fans in the UK and Ireland.

Tom Harrison, CEO of Six Nations Rugby, commented: “This year’s Autumn Nations Series stands to be an unbelievable experience on and off the pitch, by bringing together fans from all over the world, to enjoy the best that international rugby has to offer.

“It is a significant moment to welcome TNT Sports into our broadcast family of international rugby for the first time given our commitment to deliver the best possible experience for fans.”

TNT Sports has had a significant impact so far, particularly in expanding its sports portfolio. Last month it retained the broadcast rights for the Gallagher Premiership Rugby league in the UK and Ireland, further establishing its foothold in rugby broadcasting.

In addition, perhaps its most notable media rights acquisition of the year was its success in reaching an agreement to broadcast the FA Cup over the next four years, which it also announced last month.

Andrew Georgiou, President and MD of UK & Ireland and WBD Sports Europe, said: “To bring the best of international rugby to our TNT Sports subscribers is hugely exciting and another important moment which demonstrates our premium sports rights offering in the UK and Ireland.

“The Autumn Nations Series gives rugby fans access to world-class battles between the northern and southern hemispheres and is one of the highlights in the rugby calendar. 

“We are delighted to further extend our TNT Sports rugby portfolio for fans who already have plenty to look forward to for the rest of this season with Gallagher Premiership Rugby, European club rugby, Premiership Women’s Rugby and the HSBC SVNS Series.”

It has been reported that free-to-air broadcast distribution will be announced at a later date.
