Yesterday saw the launch of the new NRL Live 2013 App, providing all new content, options and ways to interact with The Greatest Game of All.
A key component of Telstra’s five-year digital rights partnership with the ARL Commission, the NRL LIVE 2013 App provides live coverage of 2013 NRL Telstra Premiership, Finals Series, Grand Final, Anzac Test, U20’s Origin and Country v City matches.

Can we watch every game live using the NRL Live 2013 app?
Availability of live match videos in NRL LIVE 2013 is based on broadcaster times. This means that all Fox Sports matches are live and availability of Channel Nine matches is based on broadcaster times. This means Channel 9 games will be broadcast at the same time as the free to air signal in your territory and therefore may be delayed.
Location services must also be turned on to determine the live match videos available to you at the time of broadcast.
