The biggest event on the global Rugby calendar is here again, with teams in Japan to battle it out for the 2019 Rugby World Cup – and you won’t have to miss a key moment when using the options in this guide to stream the action live or catch up On Demand with replays at a time that’s more convenient.
Stream the Rugby World Cup 2019™ Live or On Demand
This edition of the Rugby World Cup is nearly six weeks long, having begun on September 20th and running until a champion is crowned on the 2nd of November, and it’s the first time with the hugely popular sports streaming service Kayo Sports on board to bring you all the action live and on demand. Every match, every score, every tackle, and every victory will be there for you to stream, whether you’re watching on the big screen at home or keeping up with the action on your phone or tablet when you’re out and about.
Watching on demand with Kayo, you never need to worry about tuning in late for a game or having to remember to record them. Kayo will stream every match of the Rugby World Cup 2019™ live and ad-break free during play, and makes each game instantly available for replay. Some of the on demand replay options are unique to Kayo, and will make your Rugby World Cup 2019 experience far more immersive than simply watching a TV broadcast.
Quick Rugby World Cup Replays with Kayo Minis
Of course, not everyone has the time to take in every game of the World Cup, but don’t worry – Kayo’s got that covered already. One of the most unique and popular features of the service, Kayo Minis, are bite-sized versions of matches that you can stream in a quick 15 to 30-minute session. Edited to retain all the drama and action but to focus tightly on the events that helped decide the match, Kayo Minis let you get right up to speed with every bit of the day’s action without the massive time commitment. These ‘mini’ Rugby World Cup replays are more than just highlights collections – they’re designed to convey the excitement and flow of the match, smartly edited to give you the full game experience in a fraction of the time.
All the highlights and key events are in there, but you still feel like you’re watching a game with a start, middle and end. There’s nothing else like Kayo Minis anywhere else, and once you’ve given them a try you’ll find yourself able to take in a game no matter how busy life gets – you can catch up with an entire match on the train home from work!

Keeping on Top of the Action with Key Moments
With every match streaming in crisp high definition, Kayo lets you take control of the way you watch with interactive features you can’t get on regular TV. If you’re checking out a match that’s already streamed, you can jump straight to the moments that mattered – including all the tries – using Kayo’s unique “Key Moments” feature. Every highlight and match-winning moment is there on the streaming timeline and instantly accessible!
Spoiler-free Live Streaming
Because Kayo is based on the latest real-time streaming tech, you can stream a match from the beginning even while it’s still in progress – effectively watching it “as live”. Whether you’re watching on delay or the next day, Kayo’s “No Spoilers” feature means you won’t accidentally find out the result before you see it for yourself. You can have the match kick off at whatever time suits you and watch it from beginning to end and not have the result spoil the excitement of the match.
Split View – Direct the Match!
Keeping an eye on other games as well? With Kayo you can stream up to four different games – even four completely different live sports – simultaneously on the one screen with Kayo’s clever Split View feature. It’s like commanding your own sports TV network – and absolutely brilliant if there’s two or more things on at the same time you don’t want to miss.
