Top 14 Broadcasting in the USA

Postby eal22 » Sat, 02 Nov 2019, 20:30

Does anyone know who is broadcasting Top 14 games in the USA this season? FloRugby have been covering it the last two seasons but now they don't seem to be advertising it.

Which commentary did they carry?
If it was the UK one then no one is broadcasting it here at the moment so maybe there is no English language feed available to use?

yeah its not shown in NZ and Fiji too, apparently, top14 decided to keep the international rights themselves under Canal's Rugby+ broadcaster and they basically did not sell the rights to any of the broadcasters in UK or NZ or Australia so yeah outside of France, no one is watching Top14.

They always carries the English (Eurosport?) commentary. Seems like a backwards step to not be broadcasting outside of France.

Lol FloSports, are they still broadcasting rugby? You meant the shit-tier "streaming" service which poured god know's how much sugar money to get DC United games, had terrible quality and sometimes would not stream at all, and failed on their promises?

If they were a serious broadcaster Top14 has work to do to find a good broadcast partner

Oddly enough, the Top 14 is the only league with next to no coverage here and yet it is the most commercial out of all of them. You would’ve thought they’d at least get someone to show the games in the US even for a minimal fee, but I guess the US doesn’t really have much of a connection to French leagues like they do English/Irish.

I use FloSports to follow European basketball and find them decent for the most part. They do tend to have a habit of picking up streaming rights and then mysteriously dropping them. They were for awhile broadcasting Spanish league basketball but dropped coverage once the playoffs started - bizarre.
