It's Rugby World Cup time and the air is buzzing with excitement ... literally, as you just have to access Facebook to get what we mean. But, the pressing matter at hand is ... how to watch the rugby world cup online here in Korea, or the rest of Asia for that matter.
Then, of course, there are a fair number of watering holes across Korea who'll be screening most, if not all, of the games. If pubs and bars are not your thing, or you'd just like to chill at home and watch online, then we have two solutions for you.
- Official Rugby World Cup 2019 website
- ITV website
It seems that rugbyworldcup.com are streaming the matches live (or possibly delayed), and it is a win-win situation for all rugby fans worldwide.
If you experience any problems with rugbyworldcup.com streams, then your next option is itv.com.
What Is ITV
Let us explain ...
ITV is a UK based online video on demand service accessible through the main ITV website, itv.com. The service offers a variety of programs across ITV, ITV2, ITVBe, ITV3, ITV4 and CITV. Most important of all is that all 48 Rugby World Cup matches will be available on ITV for free (ITV 4 and ITV Hub).
As long as you are in the UK, you can stream all the matches online for free. Okay, so we are not in the UK! How are we going to do this?
Easy ... we are going to use a VPN (virtual private network).
What VPN To Use
For the sake of simplicity we recommend you use ExpressVPN. Here's why ...
ExpressVPN is really easy to use, is incredibly fast and works everywhere (incuding China). Also, signing up for ExpressVPN only takes a few minutes. All you have to do is select their pricing plan, enter in your e-mail, and put in your purchase information. There aren't any long-winded questionnaires involved. Just a quick 1,2,3 and you're done.
You can use ExpressVPN on your computer, smartphone, or tablet. You're allowed up to three connections per subscription. So if you're person with multiple devices you won't get left out in the cold.
Unlike other VPNs that require you to enter your login information every time you use their software, you only have to enter an activation code (which is given to you when you sign-up and download ExpressVPN) once and you're ready to watch World Cup Rugby 2019 online. They have a monthly subscription available if you are not interested in subscribing to a VPN service for the long haul.
After you have subscribed to, and downloaded ExpressVPN, you then access ITV.
Remember to have your VPN activated with your location set to UK, London, before you click through to ITV. Then all you need to do is sign up for a free ITV account, confirm your e-mail address, and you're good to go. Just note that you'll be asked to enter a (UK) post code. You can find a way around that here.
We hope this information helped you to watch the Rugby World Cup 2019 online in Korea and that your team exceeds your expectations.
