Where to watch Six Nations Rugby 2022 Live on TV

The Six Nations Championship refers to a yearly men’s international rugby union competition. Due to sponsorship reason, the event is currently known as the Guinness Six nations. If you’re getting confused, then we must clarify that, previously the competition was largely known as the RBS Six Nations as the Royal bank of Scotland Group served as the main sponsor for one and a half decade. However, NatWest banking subsidiary replaced RBS for a year and finally Guinness took over for the next five years. Their privilege as the title sponsor started from 2019 and will run through to 2024. Here we will discuss where to and how to enjoy Six Nations games live in USA and Canada.
