The battle between six teams is for the prize of the Grand Slam Glory in five rounds.

Streaming the Six Nations in the UK
The good news is that all the Six Nations matches will be live on terrestrial TV all over the UK. This means you can watch each game free as long as you have a valid TV license. The coverage is split between ITV and BBC who have coverage rights and stream online via the ITV Hub and BBC iPlayer websites and mobile phone apps.
If you try to access ITV or BBC from outside the UK, the service will block your attempts. To circumvent this geoblock, you can enjoy Six Nations live stream with a reliable Virtual Private Network (VPN). A reliable VPN creates a secure tunnel between your device and the internet, masking your IP address and location. This means data from your device to the internet is encrypted, and vice versa. If you install a VPN and set the location as the UK, you can enjoy live streaming easily.
