TNT Sports agrees a new two-year deal that will see every Gallagher Premiership rugby match broadcast live in the UK and Ireland.

TNT Sports will broadcast every Gallagher Premiership rugby match live in the UK and Ireland from next season, it has been announced.

The Discovery-owned broadcaster currently shows 69 of the 93 games a season live but that figure will increase to the full complement from 2024-25 in a two-year deal.

The agreement mirrors Sky Sports' deal with rugby league's Super League to transmit every game live, which kicked in last month, and means that UK TV viewers will be able to see every match across both codes for the first time.

Simon Massie-Taylor, CEO of Premiership Rugby, said: "This first season alongside TNT Sports has already produced some unmissable drama - so we are delighted to be showcasing every single Gallagher Premiership Rugby game on the same platform from 2024-25."

"Our new agreement with Premiership Rugby means that, for the very first time, fans will be able to enjoy every single match live throughout the season in one place," added Andrew Georgiou, president at WBD Sports Europe.

"TNT Sports and its streaming home discovery+ will be the perfect companion for everyone looking to enjoy immersive rugby coverage alongside outstanding content that will bring fans even closer to the sport.

"With every game live, we can provide an even greater stage for the game, its clubs and the players. We have been broadcasting Premiership Rugby to millions of fans for more than a decade and are excited by the opportunity to go even further through our live broadcasts, programming and extensive coverage across social and digital platforms."

TNT also has the rights to every European Rugby Champions Cup game, select European Rugby Challenge Cup matches and Premiership Women's Rugby.

The broadcaster is also rumoured to be in pursuit of a deal to take the rights to the autumn Test matches from Amazon's Prime Video.
