The Watch NRL video player has multiple functions for your optimal viewing pleasure. Our video players utilise adaptive streaming technology - meaning that our content network will deliver to you the best possible resolution based on your connection. For good quality streaming you need a strong, consistent connection of at least 5Mbps. Please note: whilst a speed test might provide an indicative speed, these are not always representative of a consistent connection over a long period of time. If you wish to test your speed, you can check your speed here.
