The new NRL Digital Network has been launched under the leadership of Rebekah Horne.
NRL.com, the 16 clubs, NSWRL and QRL digital assets have been relaunched to give fans the best coverage of what the league brands “the greatest game of all”.
The new NRL Network is promising more articles, more videos, more podcasts, more images, more stats and more features on all the digital assets.
Along with the new-look club websites, the 19 apps for the NRL, clubs and states have been upgraded and are available on iOS and Android.
Users are able to sign up for an NRL account on the apps to unlock extra features, access more stories and receive special ticketing offers and much more.
The NRL has also announced it has extended the naming rights for the Telstra Premiership into a record 17th season.
Telstra has renewed its association both as naming rights partner for the Telstra Premiership and, in partnership with the NRL, will form NRL Digital Media for the next five years.
For the first time, Rugby League fans will be able to watch Telstra Premiership, State of Origin and Test matches live-to-air on mobile phones and tablets via the Official NRL App on iPhone and Android, regardless of their carrier. Matches on Nine will be simulcast and those on Fox Sports will be live.
Fans will also have access to extensive highlights packages during and after games, access to an alternative camera angle during the broadcast and to exclusive post-game features and press conferences on their mobile and tablet devices.
