Nine the only place for State Of Origin digital access

• Digital rights holder to deliver five live streams via 9Now

Nine Entertainment Co is preparing for the first 2018 State of Origin game just eight days away. It has revealed its digital platform 9Now will offer unrivalled digital access to Holden State of Origin with five live streams available to footy fans exclusively and free across the three-game series.

9Now is now offering users memorable moments, clips from the archives and highlights from last year’s series in the build-up to Origin 1, which is being held on Wednesday June 6 at the MCG.

All three games will be available anywhere, any time on 9Now with five streams: the Main program, Tryline Cam, Spider Cam, NSW Player Cam and Qld Player Cam.

Additional live streams:

• Tryline Cam: A unique end of view switched between each in-goal that will give you the perfect view of every scoring play.

• Spider Cam: An elevated bird’s eye view of all the big moments.

• NSW Player Cam: An uninterrupted view of the key Blues players.

• Qld Player Cam: An uninterrupted view of the key Maroons players.

Nine’s head of rugby league, Simon Fordham, said: “Nine’s exclusively live and free rights to State of Origin are the jewel in the crown for Wide World of Sports. In addition to the main broadcast on Nine, we have exclusive live and free streaming rights on 9Now, not to mention clips and highlights on to give fans the best access and analysis available.

“We are all about creating the best seat in the house and this year with Origin it is going to be better than ever.

“On 9Now we are generating five live streams from the venues to create a unique viewing experience for rugby league fans that will be available anywhere, any time. It will be something they have never seen before. In addition to streaming the main broadcast, we will also stream Spider Cam and Tryline Cam, along with dedicated Player Cams for both Queensland and New South Wales.”
