Supporters will be put into the front row this term with TNT Sports set to deliver unrivalled coverage of the 2023/24 Gallagher Premiership Rugby season.
Viewers will be treated to a feast of rugby union this season on TNT Sports with three live matches in addition to a host of new rugby programming across each Gallagher Premiership Rugby weekend from Friday to Sunday, each offering its own unique editorial approach.
Fans will have a new viewing destination as TNT Sports launches its domestic rugby coverage promising an immersive broadcast experience. discovery+ will be the new streaming home for Premiership Rugby – with live coverage, full match replays and extended highlights, plus live in-play timeline markers available so fans can choose to re-live key moments again and again.
Friday night's coverage will be fronted pitch-side by new presenter Orla Chennaoui. A 45-minute build-up will also provide a comprehensive preview of the weekend’s upcoming fixtures.
Saturday’s action, presented by Craig Doyle, will go live on linear television following the conclusion of TNT Sports’ live Premier League fixture (on non-international football weekends). A short, sharp build-up will ensure back-to-back live premium sport is promptly delivered to fans craving their Saturday afternoon rugby experience.
Sunday’s live coverage will include a 30-minute build-up, complemented by ‘The Rugby Review’ - a new 45-minute analysis and opinion show that will air at the conclusion of the live fixture.
