Has anyone heard anything more on this? Hopefully Fox also send this to the Foxtel Go app or broadcast it online somewhere as I will be in hospital on the 22nd for 5 days and really want to watch this match (since I can't be there as per normal).

Then again the hospital does have some Foxtel channels. Here's hoping to fox sports being one of them.

T.D.C .....I rang up Matt again for Foxs Sports Programming ,during my Lunch break and he has confirmed that Fox Sports will be televising the Foundation Cup next month.
I ask again , is that 100% confirmed , and he said yes.
He is also keeping his fingers crossed that SBW will play for the Roosters and will be his first game back televised which should help the ratings.
Hopefully this will make your hospital stay more bearable mate :sign:

Guys (and gals) - I dont have foxtel, think its a bit expensive.

But I have an xbox. Thinking of getting Foxtel on Xbox for $20/month

Does anyone know if they stream live NRL through Xbox???

The Basic Package has NRL Big Pond which shows:

Catch every game, every round of the 2011 Telstra Premiership, Finals Series, State of Origin and Test Matches on BigPond NRL. With match highlights, full game replays, NRL news, player interviews and more, get your footy fix on BigPond NRL.

Should be the same for 2013 I would assume.

The Monthly Fox magizine Program comes out in 10 days or so , so we will know 100% then .

He is a great link , stating the trial games & the draw for 2013.

Mate, You seem to misunderstand.....Ive no doubt it is on FOX this year, as it seems youve just confirmed...which is great to hear....what Im questioning is why.
Is it as he said, because of the new broadcast deal....or is it because the Charity Shield is on the Fri that weekend due to a music festival...when its usually on the sat when our games on.....
As for it being on the next 5 years.......well, time will tell

I wouldn't think Foxtel would go to the trouble and expense to televise is just for the fact that the Charity Shield is on a Friday instead of Saturday... do you?

The way NRL rates on FTA and paytv these days, I wouldn't be surprised to see even trial matches like this being able to rate enough so Foxsports can sell a package for advertisers and still come out ahead.

I say, I say I resemble that remark!

Yerh, I do.
Its possible Channel 9 are doing the Charity shield so Fox would have contractual obligations and possibly HAVE to broadcast it

The NRL Bigpond is the catch up TV - only shows the game 24 hours after broadcast....I have that on my Samsung TV....thanks anyway :D

Yeah that's all I can find. Looks like they don't even have an option for Fox Sports in the Xbox Packages.

I was going to say for that price, and all games, they'd lose most of their subscribers.....thought there had to be a catch somewhere

The Foundation Cup is on Fox sports 3 @ 7.30pm.

Interestingly they are also showing the Warriors v Broncs trial on Fox sports 3 @ 5.30 as well for the first time.

Foxtel Go has just added fox sports 1, 2 & 3 to the other channels available to watch on that app, so you will be able to watch the game now when your in hospital. Bit of luck, they have free wi-fi at the hospital so you can use their internet data instead of yours ;)

Sorry, only stream I know is via Foxtel Go to your iPad. I would expect any illegal streaming sites to be dealt with pretty quickly considering how much Fox and Telstra paid for the digital distribution rights.

Most of the sites I know of from last year are either down or not showing NRL yet.
