Wales will face-off against New Zealand today. But if you aren’t in Cardiff for the clash, there is still an easy way to watch the rugby international, which starts at 5.15pm today (Saturday October 30, 2021). Amazon’s Prime Video service has nabbed the exclusive rights to 17 of the Autumn Nations Series’ 20 internationals this year. The Wales vs New Zealand fixture will not be broadcast on terrestrial television at all. Even the Welsh language provision is being handled by Amazon this year, with S4C losing out.
Wales vs New Zealand rugby live stream: How to watch
To tune-in to Wales vs New Zealand today, you’ll need access to Prime Video. This is available as a standalone subscription – like rivals Disney+ and Netflix – at £7.99 a month. However, the video streaming service is also included as a perk of the annual Prime membership scheme, which also includes a number of other benefits, like speedy next-day delivery on items from Amazon at no extra cost, access to Prime Reading ebooks on their Kindle, free streaming from Amazon Music, and Prime Gaming.
Regardless of whether you have Prime Video as part of an annual Prime membership or a standalone subscription, you’ll enjoy the same experience within the app itself. Sports, shows and movies can be streamed via Prime Video on a smartphone (apps for both iPhone and Android are available), tablet (Android, iPad and Amazon Fire tablets are all supported), as well as a number of streaming devices, including Amazon Fire TV, Roku, and Apple TV.
Set-top boxes, including Sky Q, Virgin Media’s TV 360, Talk Talk and BT TV boxes are also supported by Prime Video. Playstation and Xbox games consoles are also supported.
You’ll need to install the correct Prime Video app for your device and sign-in with your account details before you’re able to stream the action.
Not everything available as part of your Prime Video subscription will be available to watch when you’re away from the UK. Prime Video, just like Netflix, BBC iPlayer, Sky Go and a number of other services, place restrictions based on your current location, which is determined by the IP address that your device was assigned when you connected to the internet. It’s possible to bypass these geo-restrictions by employing a Virtual Private Network, or VPN, service. You can find some of the best options below…
