    Default Alternative to Sky Sport?

    Hey guys, thinking about dropping sky sport, are there any other cheaper alternative, maybe a streaming app or anything like that you would recommend? Mostly interested in NZ Rugby, Golf and Cricket. Thanks.

    Unfortunately Sky have a monopoly on the market in New Zealand with some sports for several years.

    Is it sport in other country's as well ?

    So BIG question -- legally ?

    Spark had a go a while back but no idea how that went, I know some had huge problems

    Other programs (for example Netflix) if someone has a Account in that country they can share it ( questionable on legal) along sometimes with a VPN to trick the servers to think you are in a different country.

    I had a look earlier in the year at just subscribing to things like MotoGP etc, was way cheaper just to stick with Sky.

    You’re mostly stuffed if you want the rugby. Sky has that sewn up. Spark sport has some of the cricket.

    The only other options there might be to look at if you only want sport to look at the sky sport now app (internet only). Usable on smart TVs or tablets (including Apple TV and android tv boxes). Means you can ditch the other fluff if it doesn’t interest you.

    Or over to the neighbors .

    Golf & Cricket : there may be alternatives : but at some effort & dodgyness : VPN to access streaming from another country (will still be some cost involved) . Not worth the hassles .
