The Rugby World Cup 2019 broadcast rights have been sold to TVNZ and telecommunications giant Spark.

The price of streaming all the games has not been revealed and TVNZ will play just seven games free to air, including the opening match and the final.

Technology and media commentator Paul Brislen talks to Jesse about what the deal means for fans and where there could be issues for Spark streaming games around the country.
