Six Nations 2019 live stream: how to watch rugby union online from anywhere

So far, the 2019 Six Nations has been an absolute treat for rugby union fans - especially if you're Welsh or English! The festival of rugby has entertained us with the expected array of big hits and spectacular tries sprinkled with some inexplicable individual errors that have  turned games on their heads. This year's competition is as important as ever, with the 6 teams making final preparations for the Rugby World Cup later in the year. This guide will let you watch all the round 3 action (and beyond) from the comfort of your home, or anywhere else you can get an internet connection for that matter - live stream Six Nations 2019 rugby from anywhere.

Six Nations: fact file

Current champions: Ireland

Wooden spoon holders: Italy

Most titles: 6 - England

When? From Friday, February 1 to Saturday, March 16

After a madcap first round, the 2019 Six Nations has settled into its stride after two weekends of entertaining rugby. After beating Ireland and thumping France, England are looking like a force to be reckoned with again. While Wales have equalled the record for their most consecutive Test match wins. The two meet in a round 3 grudge match to decide who will go on to fight for a Grand Slam title.

The Irish were odds-on favourites to take the 2019 Six Nations title before the opening weekend, but can no longer make it two Grand Slams in a row. The famous victory that captain Rory Best's men recorded over the All Blacks in November now looks like a long time ago, although they got things back on track with a hard fought victory in Edinburgh last time out.

Scotland are still looking good though and can still challenge to win the tournament. They'll be looking to improve on a 2018 campaign that included Calcutta Cup success over England. France and Italy had years to forget and have a lot of improvements to make should they wish to challenge either here or in Japan.

For all the info about how to watch a Six Nations live stream, read on. And you can scroll down to see a list of next weekend's fixtures, too.

How to live stream the Six Nations when you're not in your country

If you're outside your country of residence - whether that be the UK or anywhere else - and try to start streaming the rugby via your native broadcaster, you'll soon discover that you can't as it is location restricted. But there's a way you can watch anyway. By downloading and installing a VPN, you can effectively trick your computer into thinking that it's back at home. That way you can enjoy your home coverage without having to find an illegal stream - assuming you comply with the broadcaster's Ts&Cs, of course.

It's really easy to get started with a VPN - simply download, install, open the app and select the appropriate location.

We've tested all of the major VPN services and we rate ExpressVPN as the absolute best thanks to its speed, security and simplicity to use. We also like that it's compatible with so many devices and streaming services (e.g. Amazon Fire TV Stick, Apple TV, Xbox, PS4, etc). Express is excellent, but there are other fantastic VPN options out there as well - here are our current top three entrants on our best VPN countdown:

1. ExpressVPN:  the best all-round VPN for streaming, comes with 30-day trial and/or 3 months FREE with an annual plan2. IPVanish supports up to 10 devices, so great on the go3. NordVPN: one of the most affordable VPNs out of the big guns
