Amazon Prime added as broadcast partner for Autumn Nations Series
All four of Scotland’s matches in the 2021 Autumn Nations Series will be broadcast live in the UK on Amazon Prime Video, following an agreement between Amazon and Six Nations Rugby.
Following a successful 2020 Autumn Nations Cup that was enjoyed by millions of Prime members, Prime Video will broadcast in the UK all of England, Scotland, Wales, France and Italy’s matches at the Autumn Nations Series with Ireland’s matches to be included in Prime Video’s UK broadcast in 2022.
In addition to its UK rights, starting in 2021 Prime Video will broadcast all matches of the series in the Republic of Ireland with the exception of the Ireland matches that will be shown on RTE.
Commenting on the partnership, Ben Morel, Chief Executive Officer, Six Nations Rugby said: "We are delighted to be working with Prime Video again for the broadcast of the Autumn Nations Series. They were a fantastic partner last year and we share the same ambition to establish an exciting series that fans will engage with and enjoy.
"We have worked closely with all our Unions to agree a schedule of fixtures, that minimizes overlaps making it possible for supporters in UK and Ireland to watch every single match from the home teams in a series that will showcase the best teams in the Northern Hemisphere against the best teams in the Southern Hemisphere, with Argentina, Australia, New Zealand and South Africa all featuring.
"The series will also be the opportunity for the public to enjoy some of rugby's emerging nations, Japan, Tonga, Georgia and Fiji and witness some of rugby's great growing talents.”
