How to watch State of Origin 2018 online
Where previously you could purchase a $4 NRL Live Pass from Telstra and watch the Origin games on your phone, that’s not the case this year. While the Live Pass is still available, it sadly excludes live streaming of the 2018 State of Origin games.
However, the Nine Network’s free 9Now web platform will provide a live stream of all three games. There will be five separate streams available that viewers can swap between, including the spider cam and player cameras, alongside the main coverage.
The 9Now app is also available for download on both iOS and Android devices from their respective app stores, so you can still keep up on your smartphone or tablet if you’re out and about.
