The Rugby World Cup is an internationally renowned sporting event that captivates audiences around the globe. Just like its soccer counterpart, the FIFA World Cup, the rugby edition of this major tournament spans several weeks. Starting on September 8th, the competition will continue until the end of October. The 20 participating teams are divided into four groups of five, with each team playing four group-stage matches.
For viewers in the United States, the remaining games and all the knockout stage matches can be enjoyed on Peacock, a popular streaming service. While most American sports fans are familiar with using NBC’s paid streaming platform for watching the Premier League, Peacock is also the go-to destination for all Rugby World Cup games.
While the majority of games are streamed exclusively on Peacock, select matches are also broadcasted on CNBC. The channel provides live coverage for 15 games throughout the tournament, and these matches are also simulcast on Peacock. Additionally, four games have encore performances, including a group-stage fixture between Ireland and Scotland, as well as three knockout stage matches, culminating in the Final.
As the competition progresses towards the knockout stage, the excitement continues to build. Even if you’re not a die-hard rugby fan, tuning in to the elite teams battling it out in the quarterfinals and beyond can be a thrilling introduction to the sport. With Peacock, you can catch all the action as the tournament reaches its dramatic conclusion.
