Watch NRL on free-to-air TV

For the casual footy fan or those not keen to pay for every game, you can still catch a few games a week on free-to-air TV. Channel 9 has again secured some of the broadcasting rights, showing multiple games per week, along with the State of Origin matches and the Grand Final on both Channel 9 and its streaming counterpart, 9Now.

Watch NRL on NRL App

Fans located outside of Australia, New Zealand and the Pacific Islands can now view every game (live and on-demand) with a subscription to the Watch NRL app.

NRL on radio

NRL matches are broadcasted on radio, although this will depend on the match and radio station. Stations that will likely broadcast matches in your area include Triple M, 2GB and the ABC, although it’s best to look into this before kick-off so you don’t miss anything.

How to watch the 2024 NRL Grand Final

The 2024 NRL Grand Final is expected to be played on Sunday, October 6, 2024. Kick-off will most likely be at 6:30pm (AEST), with Channel 9 and its online counterpart 9NOW offering live coverage, and replays available on Kayo and Foxtel after the Grand Final has wrapped up.
