In New Zealand, which is co-hosting RLWC2017, matches are televised by Sky Sport, while EM TV is broadcasting the tournament in Papua New Guinea, where the Kumuls play their three pool games against Wales, Ireland and USA.

Fiji TV and Digicel will broadcast games in the Pacific, including Fiji, Samoa and Tonga, who have all named strong squads for the tournament, as well as Cook Islands, Nauru, Niue, America Samoa, Solomon Islands, Tuvala and Vanuatu.

In the United States, Fox Sports will broadcast matches to an audience of up to 85 million viewers, while BeIN Sports will show all matches in France.
