The 2020 NRL grand final between the Penrith Panthers and Melbourne Storm is the biggest event on the NRL calendar. We’ve got all the information you need to watch the match on TV or live stream from your device, so you don’t miss any of the action from ANZ Stadium.
The Panthers are looking to make it 18 wins in a row and claim their third premiership in club history – their first since 2003 – while the Storm are trying to further cement their legacy as the greatest side of the modern era with a third legitimate premiership under Craig Bellamy.
Channel Nine has exclusive coverage beginning very early on in the day, with special editions of Sports Sunday, The Sunday Footy Show and an exclusive broadcast of the NRL Women’s grand final. After a quick break for the news, the grand final broadcast itself begins at 6:30pm (AEDT) and continues until 10:30pm. You’ll be able to catch every minute of this via the 9Now app and it will be available on just about every device, once you make a free account.
This is the only way to stream the decider. Kayo Sports, Foxtel Now, Foxtel GO and the NRL digital pass do not have access to the grand final, although Kayo will have on-demand replays once it’s over.
That said, 9Now only works in Australia. If you’re overseas, you’ll instead need to use Watch NRL. WatchNRL is, as you can guess, a streaming service that allows you to watch NRL matches (and related programming) overseas – including the decider. An annual subscription costs $199, but you can purchase a grand final pass for $40 if you just want to watch the decider.Advertisement
