Fans able to watch live Betfred Super League coverage and more at http://www.superleagueplus.co.uk and via the SuperLeague+ app on iOS, Android and Connected TVs

Rugby League Commercial (RLC) has unveiled its new global streaming service, SuperLeague+. The platform marks the next phase of IMG’s long-term strategic partnership with RLC to reimagine the sport in the UK.

Launching ahead of the 2024 Betfred Super League season, SuperLeague+ will stream all 167 matches from the competition live internationally, starting on Thursday 15 February with the season opener, the Hull Derby.

In the UK and Republic of Ireland, domestic fans will be able to watch 106 Betfred Super League games live on the service, with the remaining 61 games to be made available delayed and on-demand. Live coverage in the UK will kick off on Friday 16 February when reigning World Club Champions St Helens take on newly promoted London Broncos, and Leigh Leopards play the Huddersfield Giants (both 8pm UK kick off).

The service will also feature exclusive fan content, including Betfred Super League highlights, archive content, dedicated club sections, and original programming such as Player Features, Super League Stories and the Out of Your League podcast.

Hosted on Endeavor Streaming’s end-to-end streaming solution, Vesper, SuperLeague+ will offer an enhanced viewing experience through features such as multi-view, which enables fans to switch between live games that are being played concurrently.

Through single sign-on, members of Our League, RLC’s membership platform can also seamlessly access the service which will be available on web at www.superleagueplus.co.uk and via the SuperLeague+ app on iOS and Android devices, as well as Connected TV platforms (Apple TV, Fire TV and Android TV).

In addition, Endeavor Streaming will provide flexible, out-the-box monetization tooling to offer fans a range of subscription and Pay-Per-View packages based on their location. Subscriptions for the service start at £19.99 per month or £129.99 annually, however selected content will be available as Pay-Per-View via Match Passes from £6.99 per game. The RLC will also utilise Endeavor Streaming’s fan support services, offering fans a dedicated helpdesk for SuperLeague+ users throughout the season.

Hull KR's full-season and non-ticketed members have now being sent their £30-off discount code for SuperLeague+'s yearly subscription to make the platform £99.99 for the 2024 Betfred Super League season, meaning they can watch more than 100 live matches for less than £1 per game.
