    I noticed on the Super 15 rugby site that DirectV will be showing the matches on channels 490 and 491. No guide data yet though.

    http://www.superxv.com/about/rights.asp

    anyone know if DTV will make us pay extra or will it be like the Champions League and La Liga coverage?

    Are they though? I notice the page said that it was an "old list of broadcasters"

    I don'y see anything on my DTV Iphone app and 490/91 say nothing is scheduled :(

    2 weeks ago, they had nothing listed for the USA. So, that is new. Don't know if it is true.

    Would this be a choice and above type of deal? Meaning, would I have to be subscribed to choice or above? I would imagine yes but I'm not entirely certain...

    The link from D* http://www.directv.com/rugby said "compliments of DirecTV" for Chs 490 & 491. There's no indication whether these channels will be SD or HD, though.

    i doubt that my current family pack will cut it but we will see...:) either way that's incredible..... D* kills it with the sports they give us yet again... fios can't come close and no one else can either.

    been watching a ton of rugby with foxsoccer.tv. i'm starting to love it. watched the sevens from las vegas over the weekend(universalsports). good stuff.

    the link to the question about if there is an extra feed brings an error too.

    No, seven on each team with two seven minute quarters/halves. Very action packed and it seems to be gaining in popularity.. it will also be featured in the next Olympic games.

    A bit of scrolling on 490-1 for the "Upcoming" Hurricanes vs. Highlanders, found it, at: 10:30 PM (PDT) start on Thursday has the HD mark; 490 would be the SD feed. Or so we can hope.....

    Actually, Super Rugby is 15-man, 2x 40 minute halves, Rugby Union.

    GO THE (QUEENSLAND) REDS!
